Chris Conde - 'Conde Digital'

Chris Conde: "Hi, I’m Chris Conde. Ive been performing multiple genres of music and writing poetry since the ’90s but only started pursuing hip-hop as a career the last 5 years. I make it known that i’m a queer rapper from the stage and wherever I can because I think visibility for my community is still super important, especially in the genre of hip-hop as it has been not so welcoming to folks in my community (and also because there are groups of folks that don’t recognize LGBTQ people as fully human).

Erik “Progeny” Frias invited me to play shows with his group Chisme starting in the mid-2010s in San Antonio and introduced me to the world of Fake Four. I felt welcomed at these shows as a queer rapper who raps over unconventional beats in a way that I didn’t at other hip-hop bills. I felt like I could be completely myself and I believe it’s that ethos that has attracted me to the Fake Four Family.

I can’t remember if it was a conversation or just a text chat I had with Ceschi around a year or so ago. But after he listened to my first album Growing up Gay, he told me “After this record, you don’t have to prove yourself anymore, people already will know you can rap, so focus on telling stories and letting your audience get to know you.” That really stuck with me. I realized it was really easy to talk about getting off of drugs and learning how to accept myself for being queer — shit I covered on Growing up Gay. But what I didn’t want people to know about was my continued struggle with finances or self-love or relationships. Those little-big things that fill us with shame. So, armed with some Moodie Black beats, I dove deep and let myself shine light on some shit I was struggling with. Conde Digital represents the continued journey of self-healing en route to wholeness. It's about facing your fears and dealing with life head on."
