Omerta-The9Elements

On the 20th anniversary of east coast duo Constant Deviants’ classic single “Competition Catch Speed Knots”, they release their new album “Omerta” on June 28th. Recently, rapper and co:owner of Six2Six Records M.I. sat down with US online The 9 Elements as part of their “The Whole 9” interview series.

In this feature, he outlined the concept behind the new album and in particular the reasoning behind its recurring theme, while addressing the message being conveyed in the first single from it, “So Underrated”.

MI2

A major development for the label in the past year has been the expansion into the world of film production. The creation of Six2Six Films coincides with M.I.’s own move into acting, as seen in last year’s collaboration with European affiliates SWC Records and the release of “Swiss Banks”.

He will next appear in a movie named after the label but with a completely original storyline which also co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee, and it has already been selected for screening at this year’s Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC.

Currently filming scenes for a further new film in Baltimore, M.I. spoke more about this transition, and you can read the interview in full HERE

ATM-MicrophoneMastersDubCNN

Microphone Masters Radio is broadcast in stream / podcast format every Wednesday through the DubCnn network.

Last week, the show’s host J-Luv sat down with Julius, Demetrius, Kenny & Dice from Horseshoe Gang to discuss their new album “Anti-Trap Music” which releases on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

During the interview, the group clarified their take on the trap music genre and the discussion progressed onto the issue of retaining lyrical integrity, and how remaining true to these ideals can be maintained using commercial productions.

They then moved on to the frustrations faced by many artists in the modern age, the prevelant expectation of multiple back to back releases. The oversaturation of the internet where quantity has replaced quality has become an issue in recent times, and has created an apparent obligation on artists to consistently produce new material and make available for free.

IMG_1023

The interview wraps up with the group addressing the net grind / financial gain factor, the life sacrifices that have to be made to pursue a musical career and their call to radio stations to sit emerging and established artists side by side on the basis of quality and not budgets.

Interesting insight to which many will relate. The full feature was published on DubCnn where you can hear the full stream of the show which also includes tracks by E-40, Brotha Lynch Hung, J-Live, Grand Puba, Big Boi and more HERE

This is the stream of the Horseshoe Gang interview including several of their joints, old and new, played on the show

Horseshoe Gang will be performing with their elder brother KXNG Crooked at Los Globos, Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles tomorrow night, Friday 26th February. Doors open at 8pm, and all details of the full line up and ticket information is HERE
