Full disclosure, I am sharing Mexstep‘s latest project Vivir sight unseen (or unheard, rather), but that is only because sometimes quality can be discerned strictly by the names associated with a project. More than anything, I am sharing this project to make sure I return to it later this week, as I already know about Mexstep‘s lyrical pedigree (largely in thanks to his dual status as a lover of hip-hop and a college-level educator), and names like Bavu Blakes, Apaso, Vocab, Kree23, Mad1ne and the legion of other guests mean that we’re getting gold stacked on gold. Perhaps the most convincing aspect of all, however, is the fact that the album is produced by the über-talented Adrian Quesada, meaning it’s going to hit you straight in the soul as well as appeal to your emotions and intellect. You know how we do it around here… cop the project if you can, seek it out on your favorite streaming service or Bandcamp to list regardless, and pay it forward by sharing it around for all to experience.
I love how sonic diversity is slowly making its way back into hip-hop. Many people like to undermine the 1990s and dismiss it as an old, antiquated and forgotten era, but the most important part of that era was the fact that hardrocks, pop rappers, esoteric lyricists and self-identified crazy MCs (along with the vast array of other hip-hop artists) could all find room in the mainstream at some level, meaning that the fullness of the hip-hop spectrum found representation. I say that to say this… knowing that collaborators like Blazy Green and Mad1ne are able to embrace the dark, moody, dingy textures that hip-hop was once synonymous with and find an audience is a testament that hip-hop is still diverse as ever. For Pressure, Mad1ne brings the hard rhymes over a banging Blazy Green track that sounds like it’s been dubbed a few times from cassette to cassette, and I’m totally here for it. Check out the track, leave a like and a comment if you feel it, and share it around for everyone to enjoy.
New Formations :: Chris Conde And Fake Four Inc. Release ‘Everyday’ Remix Contest Winner Compilation
Good friend and Fake Four Inc. labelmate Chris Conde has been making major inroads as a member of the collective roster. With the successful release of Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay handled, Conde and Fake Four Inc. decided to have a bit of community-based fun via a remix contest. The elements to Everyday were released to the public, and after a rousing response and volumes of submissions, four were selected to be released as a maxi-single along with the original track. Alibi, Badbelly and BIGBY all shined via their submissions, with grand prize winner IBGeeZee landing the opening spot on the record. If you’re a fan of Conde, Fake Four Inc. or the practice that is the remix, then don’t sleep on this name your price digital release.
As a Central Texas-based hip-hop artist, it’s no secret that Chris Conde has been exposed to a blend of different musical and cultural spectrums from several of the different racial groups that populate the area. As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community as well, it seems like Conde figured that Pride Month would be a perfect opportunity to help bridge any gaps that may exist between these different spectrums, and with the help of the legendary Cumbia producer El Dusty, he has done so in the form of Summertime Heat, a Cumbia-heavy banger meant to keep parties going strong all summer. Definitely don’t sleep on this one.
MAD1NE has been busy this year, and he’s driving that point home with Respect Is Non Negotiable, his fourth release of the year. For this project, he tapped recent collaborator Blazy Green to handle production duties exclusively, and outside of a guest appearance from Jamar Equality, we get a quick but powerful burst of the MAD1NE lyricism that he has become known for, full of inspirational and education gems infused with high style and and a forceful delivery. If you’re a fan of that signature San Antonio hip-hop sound that is keeping the true school aesthetic alive, then don’t sleep on Respect Is Non Negotiable.
You know how it goes… Mad1ne joints get instant props around these parts. His latest collaboration with producers Henry Kool Mckool and The Fall, the horn-driven and catchy The Equation (plus the little bonus bars at the end) is the exact high-quality hip-hop we’ve come to know, love and expect from the San Antonio wordsmith. Give this one a bunch of watches this weekend, leave a like and a comment, and spread the word about it!
From the digital desk of Chris Conde and Fake Four Inc. :
“As an openly queer rapper, Texas‘ Chris Conde combines the classically detached spheres of hip hop, indie rock and avant-garde experimental art punk of the drag variety. In their sometimes hysterical but always poignant bars, Conde strives to relate to their audience through an honest communication of their personal narrative of overcoming drug addiction, internalized homophobia and self-acceptance.
Chris Conde is a Fake Four Freecember 2019 Alum who has received press shoutouts from NPR’s Tiny Desk series, the San Antonio Current, Texas Music Magazine, and Hip Hop DX. Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay features Ceschi Ramos and offers up production by K Death of Moodie Black, Lazerbeak of Doomtree, and Whatever Cecil with artwork by Squalloscope. Chris’s honest storytelling ability, beat selection, and sharp technical skills displayed across Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay are sure to move you and resonate on multiple levels.”
Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay, the upcoming Chris Conde release from Fake Four Inc., drops this upcoming Sunday, and with Conde doing the work in terms of promotional rollout, it makes sense that his third (and seemingly final prerelease) single would feature a guest appearance from the always stellar and compelling Fake Four label-head and foundational artist Ceschi. Over a very somber and spacious beat, Conde and Ceschi open up their minds and hearts about attempting to stay motivated and creative in a world that gives us reasons to believe otherwise. The Summer of Our Discontent could soundtrack these bleak and uncertain times we’ve been navigating through lately, so if you feel like you could use a sonic remedy, check out the video, leave a like and a comment, and spread it around for all to take in.
Mad1ne is continuing his prolific 2020–2021 run, and it seems like it’s only gaining momentum at the moment, meaning things are probably just getting really and truly going. Mad1ne and Blazy Green hit up Johnny Depp for some guest bars on Castaways, the latest single and video from Dark Side Of Jupiter. The track is dope, featuring a beat switch halfway through and bars all around, and the video not only features everyone tapped for the track, but a guest appearance from the homie Ruler Why as well. Definitely check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so everyone can dig it.
