2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Constant Deviants’ classic Competition Catch Speed Knots, and the two soldiers of hip hop, MC M.I. and DJ Cutt are upping the ante this year.
They’re following last year’s critically acclaimed “Avant Garde” with the release of another new album “Omerta” on June 28th. The UK’s long running publication Blues & Soul has just afforded it a 4 star review in its new issue (1027) which hit stores’ shelves yesterday. We’re not at liberty to reproduce the entire review here, but it can be read on Page 47 if you pick up a copy from selected stores, or indeed order it worldwide via their official WEBSITE
We have also learned that among the other publications to confirm their intent to feature the release is the globally renowned MOJO Magazine. You will be able to read what they have to say at the time of the album’s release.
As co:owner of Six2Six Records, M.I. has also made significant moves into the world of film making. As an actor, soundtrack producer, writer and the driving force behind the new sub division Six2Six Films, he appeared in last year’s “Swiss Banks”, a co-production with European affiliates SWC Records.
His new film “Six2Six” which co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee has been selected by the Hip Hop Film Festival, run by Ralph McDaniels and Julien Lockhart, to be screened in NYC in August. Meanwhile, M.I. is in his home city of Baltimore shooting scenes for another new movie called “Can’t Live Without My Radio”.
Back on the music tip, and Constant Deviants will be performing at the LoudPalooza event at Baltimore’s Castaways Bar & Grill in Boston Street on Saturday June 25th before heading to NYC the following day for a week long series of meet & greets with members of the press and to appear as guests on various radio shows.
It will begin with an appearance on DJ Eclipse’s Sirius XM Rap is Outta Control Show on Sunday June 26th, Eclipse having given their new joint “Cutt for President” its first airplay earlier this week
Look out for extensive international media coverage in the weeks ahead, and the second in their “Tre Volte” live freestyle video series being launched shortly
