Cutt-For-President

New joint by east coast duo Constant Deviants who release their new album “Omerta” on June 28th.

“Cutt for President” is a bonus track recorded recently with MC M.I.’s instantly recognizable flows making way for generous sections of turntablism supplied by the man himself, DJ Cutt.

Baltimore rapper M.I. is currently in his home city filming scenes for a new movie called “Can’t Live Without My Radio”. He will also appear in a new film called “Six2Six” co:starring Treach, Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee, which has just been selected by the Hip Hop Film Festival to be shown in NYC in August.

Constant Deviants release their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” on 12th May through their own Six2Six label on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

Been a busy time for the veteran Baltimore & New Jersey duo. Recently they released the film “Swiss Banks” with their partners in Switzerland SWC Records, completed filming of their freestyle series “3Stylez” and have been conducting interviews with a whole range of international media. Most recently, Emcee M.I. was seen on the new “Rapping with Leiberman” online tv chat show talking politics and hip hop with SiriusXM Host Jon Leiberman.

They also go into detail about the joint “Yup” they recorded with Rick Ross and N.O.R.E. in 2008, and provide details about how the film “Swiss Banks” was created, and give their thoughts on the current state of mainstream and independent hip hop as well as what has contributed most to their longevity in the game

SoulonFire-SampleFace

The latest review of the new album Soul on Fire by ethemadassassin comes courtesy of UK online magazine SampleFace.

Afforded a 4/5 rating by reviewer Taytula Burke, on the beats and production she opens:

E curates beats from producers like SciFi Stu, Kyo Itachi, Wonder Boy and Gav Beats resulting in crazy guitar riffs, soulful vocal samples and jazzy piano keys being used as the soundtrack for a joyride through the mind of a veteran emcee.

The review is another to reflect well on E’s work on the mic with his “lyrical prowess” and subject matter, summarizing “this is an album worth having in your collection if you expect hip hop to have more than just rhyming couplets and a catchy hook.

You can read the review in full HERE

You can buy the album now from iTunes HERE

Meantime, check out his recently launched bonus cut H.T.G. ft Sole-R on Soundcloud & Youtube
