Omerta-HHK

A year after releasing their highly acclaimed album “Avant Garde”, duo emcee M.I. and DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, return with “Omerta” which drops 28th June on Six2Six Records

Their natural instinct for creativity has developed into the world of movie making in recent years, and they have drawn from their Italian and Russian roots to adopt the roles of Luciano & Lansky in the new themed concept album.

HHK Mag caught up with them early as part of their ongoing “25 Facts” series, where the group discuss more the thinking behind the concept, reveal it is the first time for many years they recorded together in the same studio simultaneously, and perhaps it is due to that extra energy that they have created what they believe to be their best work to date.

New Jersey trio Price AK, Riq da Kid & Tru Trilla, aka 050 Boyz, release their new album “Everything 050” on 4th August

While this may be their debut album as a group, a follow up to their earlier mixtape “050 Dat”, all three members have been involved in hip hop during the past couple of decades as members of groups, with solo projects and as part of the Garden State Greats movement of 2004 launched by Treach (Naughty by Nature) and Fam (Rottin Razkals).

The group formed in the past few years, in part inspired by the concept behind GSG regenerated by DoItAll from Lords of the Underground. The album’s only producer Clinton Place also has a history with the group members going back to the 90’s, and the new release can be viewed as the natural result of many years of collaborations and developed working relationships in New Jersey’s scene.

The first review of the album was published today in the UK’s long running online Blacksheep Magazine. Read what their writer Andrew Kay had to say HERE

Further news of the release has just been published in two more British online publications, HHK Magazine and London’s Guestlist Network
