Last Friday, M.I. and DJ Cutt from Constant Deviants dropped into Brooklyn’s Bodega Cold Kutz studio, the show streaming live every Friday from 5pm – 8pm EST.

DJ Joe Bodega spins the real deal when it comes to hip hop, assisted this week by DJ Toshi, and the show breaks for interview segments.

In this 30 minute interview with Constant Deviants (it begins 45 minutes into the show), hosts Jay Drilla and J2ThaMar cover a lot of interesting territory with the duo. First off they discuss the group’s earliest days, how they came together to form the group and how between 2000 – 2006 the group was on an effective hiatus.

This was due to M.I. signing a solo deal with Arista at the time, arranged by J Cole’s current manager Mark Pitts, while DJ Cutt engineered several albums for Roc-A-Fella. In this particular interview M.I. and Cutt go into far more detail than perhaps has been previously the case about the realities of life at these labels and the consequences it had for them.

In a similar vein, more specific information is provided regarding the circumstances around a 2006 remix of the Rick Ross track “Yup” which featured N.O.R.E. and M.I., but which was sent around djs incorrectly naming M1 from Dead Prez as the featured artist…just so this is cleared up once and for all !

Baltimore’s M.I. is then asked for his perspective on the riots in the city which took place in 2015 and he gives an interesting and informative perspective on the realities of what led up to these events and the extent to which it actually affected the city as a whole.

They also discuss a range of other subjects including the new album “Omerta”, the move into film making, the use of sampling and differentials in hip hop production, underground and mainstream hip hop and much more. Definitely worth a watch, check it out on Vimeo

ALBUM COVER

Constant Deviants have confirmed the release date of their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” as 12th May 2015 which will be available on their own label Six2Six Records.

As the name suggests, the new 15 track album takes the true essence of a past era and applies a contemporary twist for today. Since the release of their debut 12″ single ‘Competition Catch Speed Knots’ in 1996, these hip hop veterans worked with major labels Arista and Roc-A-Fella on various projects before returning to the independent sector with the formation of their label.

Their debut album ‘Concrete Utopia’ in 2010 was followed by ‘Amongst Friends’ (2011) and ‘Diamond’ (2012) and now with Avant Garde, two decades of experience shine through. M.I.’s lyricism is perfectly complimented by DJ Cutt’s production and turntablism, resulting in a release with a sophisticated maturity by a duo at ease with their craft.

They have just launched the official album trailer video on Vimeo
