Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and NY state producer Frost Gamble (now resident in Winnipeg, Canada), release their new album “Black Beach” on Friday May 26th 2017.

Politically charged, it’s Zo’s perspective on today’s “Black America” addressing issues which gave rise to the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, the pivotal role of strong paternal figures in raising their children while also presenting an optimistic & aspirational vision of the future.

Crate digger Frost, now emerging as one of the most prolific producers around, brings a diverse array of sampled breaks and beats to match the mood swings, incorporating classic soul, jazz and hip hop hooks to set the perfect backdrop.

Italian online magazine Rapmaniacz have just published a review ahead of release HERE

Omerta-Blacksheep

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

In this one, the pair have taken a slightly different approach in adopting a running theme and concept throughout in a similar vein to Kool Keith’s “Tashan Dorsett” and Prince Paul’s “A Prince Among Thieves”. Speaking on the idea behind it, Emcee M.I. is quoted as saying “It’s to put a little of the fun back into hip hop, not just throwing out beats and bars. A return to the days where the focus was on entertainment, relating imaginative stories and putting more emphasis on actual songwriting“.

Of course through their Six2Six label they have expanded their creative enterprises into movie making, so it’s in keeping with the mindset to be innovative while retaining their trademark sound.

In this early review published by the UK’s Blacksheep Magazine, contributor Andrew Kay grasps the point exactly and in conclusion remarks ““Omerta” is a solid slice of street knowledge. They don’t make albums like this anymore. The Golden Era has come full circle. Not before time.READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE

CD4

We of course have had the benefit of hearing the album, and whether it’s because it is the first to be recorded where the pair were in the studio together for many years, the quality is superb and it’s little surprise the group themselves deem it to be their favourite album to date.

They released two tracks recently. First a little loosener called “Gavone” followed by the single “So Underrated”

Look out for a lot of media coverage on this album in the months ahead together with more releases, the launch of a new video freestyle series “Tre Volte” and news of a special album launch event in NYC later in June. Keep up to date with Constant Deviants on TWITTER and FACEBOOK

The in depth track by track analysis which summarizes “Anti-Trap music lives up to its agenda through a mixture of styles and narratives. The production is way above standard, combining traditional and the present. Lyrically, it’s a professional and powerful combination of chemistry and raw talent, with a nod to the past and a uniqueness all of their own.” can be read in full HERE
