Omerta-StreetsConnect Part2

In the lead up to the release of the group’s fifth studio album “Omerta”, Baltimore rapper M.I. from Constant Deviants spoke at length to west coast online publication Streets Connect Magazine.

Part 1 of the interview was published recently, and in the second installment they discuss M.I.’s time spent signed to a solo deal with Arista and the issues he faced particularly in relation to the label’s suggested marketing strategy for him as an artist. This takes the conversation onto the wider subject of how white rappers were, and possibly still are, targeted at specific demographics.

An insight is given into M.I.’s earliest influences, and while several of the greats are acknowledged, he explains that the biggest factor in his development was found closer to home within Baltimore’s scene, and in particular the role played by Lab Tech 1.

The subject switches to M.I.’s move into the world of film making as an actor, writer and producer, with his most recent movie “Six2Six” having just been screened at last week’s Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC, and the discussion develops further as he explains why he feels it is now less productive for independent artists to release official music videos.

The interview concludes with the announcement that Constant Deviants will perform in Colombia shortly, a territory they have found to be particularly supportive due to a strong vinyl market in line with the label’s policy of releasing in that format, a factor which has also established their presence in the UK, Europe and Australia

The overall interview is one of the most in-depth ever given by M.I., and can be read HERE
