Omerta-StreetsConnect Part2

In the lead up to the release of the group’s fifth studio album “Omerta”, Baltimore rapper M.I. from Constant Deviants spoke at length to west coast online publication Streets Connect Magazine.

Part 1 of the interview was published recently, and in the second installment they discuss M.I.’s time spent signed to a solo deal with Arista and the issues he faced particularly in relation to the label’s suggested marketing strategy for him as an artist. This takes the conversation onto the wider subject of how white rappers were, and possibly still are, targeted at specific demographics.

An insight is given into M.I.’s earliest influences, and while several of the greats are acknowledged, he explains that the biggest factor in his development was found closer to home within Baltimore’s scene, and in particular the role played by Lab Tech 1.

The subject switches to M.I.’s move into the world of film making as an actor, writer and producer, with his most recent movie “Six2Six” having just been screened at last week’s Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC, and the discussion develops further as he explains why he feels it is now less productive for independent artists to release official music videos.

The interview concludes with the announcement that Constant Deviants will perform in Colombia shortly, a territory they have found to be particularly supportive due to a strong vinyl market in line with the label’s policy of releasing in that format, a factor which has also established their presence in the UK, Europe and Australia

The overall interview is one of the most in-depth ever given by M.I., and can be read HERE

Omerta-StreetsConnect

In the past few weeks, rapper M.I. from eastcoast hip hop duo Constant Deviants jumped on the phone to westcoast publication Streets Connect Magazine.

In what was an in depth conversation, many subjects were addressed meaning the resultant interview being published in two parts.

The first of these has M.I. going deep into the concept behind the group’s new album “Omerta” which released on June 28th, the production process, and the various inspirations that contributed to its ultimate naissance. This naturally leads the discussion on to his thoughts on the art of songwriting in hip hop today, and the group’s approach to a new project with the emphasis placed on a cohesive construction rather than random beats and bars.

DB2

The Baltimore MC gives an example of writing for a female audience, citing the approach of Mobb Deep, Pete Rock, CL Smooth and Gangstarr to underline the point, and it takes the interview back to the days of when the group first started, the progression from battle raps to the art of storytelling, and the release of their debut single “Competition Catch Speed Knots

Omerta-AboveAverageHipHop

During the last week of June, M.I. and DJ Cutt from Constant Deviants were in NYC promoting their new album “Omerta” which released on June 28th

They appeared as guests on a wide range of radio shows and also took time out to meet up with Above Average Hip Hop contributor Shanique Williams.

In this short but sweet video, they address various questions including “What’s A Good Shower To Sing”.

DJCutt

At this point, DJ Cutt gives an answer where we would advise all viewers of a nervous disposition to look away, and all others to ensure you are sitting down for this one. You literally may not belieb…believe…your ears. Cutt has subsequently claimed to have been possessed by a demon at the time, and those weren’t his words, but we’ll let you be the judge !

Despite his brief dalliance with “the dark side”, DJ Cutt is one helluva producer and both he and M.I. released a real hip hop classic in “Omerta”.

It is available to buy online in digital format direct from Six2Six Records, while vinyl and CD versions are currently being distributed worldwide by Fatbeats

M.I. returns to NYC for the screening of his new movie “Six2Six” at the Hip Hop Film Festival on Friday August 5th. It co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee, and will be screened at 8.30pm EST that evening. More details about the festival HERE
