North west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan has today released his new album “S.C.U.M.” through Miami label 22 Entertainment.

Long considered as one of the most creative and gifted lyricists at the forefront of the UK’s burgeoning rap scene, he also spent time in NYC where early comparisons dubbed him “the new Slick Rick” while working with the late Sean Price, Sav Killz, Prince Po and Dead Prez.

Featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin, “S.C.U.M.” is produced entirely by one of England’s hottest new emerging names Agor, his sophisticated and lavish soundscapes providing the perfect backdrop for charismatic portrayals of an irrepressible underclass. Stylish and compelling, a series of bold, satirical and uncomprimising rhymes intelligently depict contemporary aspirations, and reaffirms his international reputation as a serious force in rap’s new wave.

The album is available on CD and digital formats from multiple onlines stores worldwide including Amazon, iTunes and Spotify

Baltimore rapper M.I. and New Jersey producer DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – released their new album “Omerta” on June 28th this year.

They originally formed in Brooklyn and spent a week back in the area at the time of the release appearing on various radio stations promoting the new record. This time a themed release with metaphorical references to the mafiosa underworld, they adopted the roles of Luciano & Lansky in a series of sonic vignettes employing the traditional art of storytelling while retaining their trademark sound.

The most recent review appears on page 77 in the current issue of French printed publication Jazz News Magazine which is in stores now, and is included with coverage on an eclectic range of artists including Eric Clapton, Mndsgn and Brooklyn’s The Golden Grass.

ATM-RhymeJunkieInterview

Fair to say that 2016 will have proven to be a busy year for Long Beach hip hop crew Horseshoe Gang.

They released their new album “Anti-Trap Music” in April, the album immediately entering iTunes charts’ Top 50 in 15 countries with Amazon’s initial CD stock sold out in a day.

Their elder brother KXNG Crooked (aka Crooked I) had been developing a new talent show “One Shot” which is now due for first broadcast this month with the group featuring as judges, and in September a second limited edition album “4 Brothers” will be released, again through Seven 13 Entertainment.

Peter Johnstone from US online magazine Rhyme Junkie caught up with them recently to discuss their experience of the music industry, their views on trap music, the different lyrical styles each member brings to the group, the political content of tracks such as “Shoe-icide Squad” and what people can expect from “4 Brothers”.

Omerta-RhymeJunkie

East coast duo Constant Deviants released their new album “Omerta” on June 28th.

Their fifth official studio release following “Concrete Utopia”, “Amongst Friends”, “Diamond” and “Avant Garde” has a theme running throughout, inspired initially by M.I. and DJ Cutt’s respective Italian and Russian heritage, though other factors helped shape the overall concept.

Scottish writer Peter Johnstone took a listen and wrote a new feature on the album and the group for US online Rhyme Junkie :

Including the appraisal “it’s safe to say that Constant Deviants have produced another winner.” you can read the article in full HERE

Omerta-RapmaniaczReview

Baltimore MC M.I. and New Jersey producer DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – released their fifth studio album “Omerta” on June 28th.

The duo who first formed while they were based in Brooklyn followed last year’s critically acclaimed “Avant Garde” by adding an additional twist with this year’s album, applying a theme throughout based on their respective Italian and Russian heritages.

The “mob” references are metaphorical, juxtaposing lifestyles by adopting the roles of Luciano and Lansky who shared their nationalities. A series of short stories demonstrate situations in a comparative way rather than the hackneyed “mafiosa rap” of the past.

The latest review to be published is by Italian online RapManiacz. Read what they have to say HERE
