Omerta-IAmHipHopMagazine

Constant Deviants released their new album “Omerta” on Tuesday June 28th, and spoke recently with the UK’s I Am Hip Hop Magazine

The conversation picks up on the role playing element adopted by M.I. and DJ Cutt as part of the concept behind the album, and this leads on naturally to the subject of M.I.’s considerable move into film making in the past year.

Following the 2015 release of “Swiss Banks”, a co:production with European affiliates SWC, actor, writer and producer M.I. is set to have his new movie “Six2Six” which co:stars Treach, Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee screened at The Hip Hop Film Festival in August, having been selected by Ralph McDaniels

Riq da Kid, Prince AK and Tru Trilla have put together a banger from start to finish, assisted greatly by the production by their long time associate Clinton Place.

“Everything 050”, just as with the group named after the area code for New Jersey, is one for the heads. Neck breakin beats, raucous delivery & energy, on point lyricism, it’s like the good ‘ol days while being aware it’s 2015. There’s also features from Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Famiil, Tha Advocate, IB the Druid, B Wells and many more, including a lil UK flavour from WiseRap.

050-LincolnParkFestival

Speaking of the UK, the trio chopped it up with London’s I Am Hip Hop Magazine recently to discuss how the group formed and their links with Treach and the Garden State Greats movement, the artists who inspired them and their traditional and ongoing focus on representing New Jersey. Having come up through the Golden Era, they also highlight the new wave of artists they rate, they discuss the process on choosing producers, and Clinton Place himself speaks about his involvement with the album.

The feature also touches upon their move into the world of acting. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

They performed at the Lincoln Park Festival in Newark last weekend with their dj, DJ Nugget.
