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

Recently, west coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang chopped it up with Joe Blakk & Mr Caypre on High End Radio which broadcasts through the Siccness Radio network.

The crew spoke about the COB (Circle of Bosses) movement started by their elder brother KXNG Crooked before addressing their tag as “the new saviours of the west coast” as part of the discussion on the loss of real lyricism in hip hop, and those artists who are bringing it back on the agenda.

The show’s hosts addressed the track “Why Men Cheat” from the group’s debut album “Gangsta MC” and their reputation over the years of talking about all forms of real life issues, before the subject moved to cyphers.

When asked whether they thought Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Future and Rich Homie Quan could go toe to toe in a cypher, Horseshoe Gang threw the doors open and laid down a challenge to allcomers to take ’em on before finishing the interview with Julius launching into a fierce 16 bar freestyle

The full interview was uploaded to the official Siccness Youtube Channel

CD-TheBeeshine

Filmed on 12th May 2015, the actual day of release of their fourth album “Avant Garde”, Constant Deviants sat down with The Beeshine in New York while they were in town for a series of media and radio interviews.

For fans of the group, this footage is also a bit of a collectors item as both Emcee M.I…no it’s not DeNiro in Raging Bull ;)…and DJ Cutt discuss a variety subjects from their history, rarer than some of the 12″‘s in Cutt’s crates!!!

IMG_7195ba

They talk about their very earliest days getting into music, M.I. explaing his family’s musical background and Cutt reflecting on the days of Red Alert on Kiss and hearing LL Cool J’s “Rock the Bells” for the first time.

Moving on to first performing, M.I. recalls the days of hip hop culture first arriving with breakdancin crews and the first freestyle sessions at a record store in Baltimore’s Saratoga Street, while Cutt reveals all about destroying his father’s turntable trying to scratch for the first time, then saving up lunch money to get his first decks….without a mixer….

However it was the progression for both to NY state, with Cutt at school for music engineering that the two met in the 90’s and performed together for the first time at college parties.

cd 5

The pivotal point came with the release of their first 12″ Competition Catch Speed Knots, and Cutt reveals he still has a picture of DJ Premier buying a copy at Beat Street. M.I. explains his development from initially a battle rap style delivery to a writer of reality rhymes, and both speak about the benefits they’ve enjoyed of travelling to Europe, learning business skills from the industry and how they’d like to be considered in years to come.

WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW

At the time of this interview, they were also guests of Smokin Aces and DJ Bazarro on Beatminerz Radio, and meeting with DJ Evil Dee again after many years ultimately led to Da Beatminerz remixing Constant Deviants most recent single “End All Be All”.

It was released yesterday, check the stream

Having just wrapped the filming of their new movie “Six2Six”, they’re now back in the studio recording a new album. Avant Garde can be bought HERE and you can connect with them on social media on FACEBOOK or on twitter @Cnstnt_Dvnts @Six2SixShift & @IncredibleCutts

New Jersey trio Price AK, Riq da Kid & Tru Trilla, aka 050 Boyz, release their new album “Everything 050” on 4th August

While this may be their debut album as a group, a follow up to their earlier mixtape “050 Dat”, all three members have been involved in hip hop during the past couple of decades as members of groups, with solo projects and as part of the Garden State Greats movement of 2004 launched by Treach (Naughty by Nature) and Fam (Rottin Razkals).

The group formed in the past few years, in part inspired by the concept behind GSG regenerated by DoItAll from Lords of the Underground. The album’s only producer Clinton Place also has a history with the group members going back to the 90’s, and the new release can be viewed as the natural result of many years of collaborations and developed working relationships in New Jersey’s scene.

050-Blacksheep

The first review of the album was published today in the UK’s long running online Blacksheep Magazine. Read what their writer Andrew Kay had to say HERE

Further news of the release has just been published in two more British online publications, HHK Magazine and London’s Guestlist Network
