In this exclusive video interview, his first for two years, north west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan reveals all about his artistic change of direction, his new album and his close relationship with the late Sean Price.

While discussing the themes and recording process of his recently released “S.C.U.M.” LP, he explains the transition from the artist formerly known as Iron Braydz to his current persona, a move in part inspired by actor Ray Winstone and the former Boot Camp Clik frontman who he describes as “one of the biggest influences on my life”.

Documenting the reason for his “Sean Price” tribute track, DFH proceeds to give an extensive in depth account of how their relationship grew through the years. He recounts their first meeting backstage in London and subsequent recording session evolving into a personal bond which would ultimately see the Brooklyn legend credit the young MC for his conversion to Islam.

In a series of very poignant recollections, their shared humour, respect and friendship is discernible culminating in rare video footage of the great man performing to his “little brother” on the Jazz Cafe stage. Following a further personal tribute to Bernadette Price, Harlesden’s finest outlines his release plans for 2018.

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

“Omerta” can be bought as a digital download HERE and has been distributed to specialist stores worldwide in CD and vinyl formats by Fatbeats.

B&S1

2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Constant Deviants’ classic Competition Catch Speed Knots, and the two soldiers of hip hop, MC M.I. and DJ Cutt are upping the ante this year.

They’re following last year’s critically acclaimed “Avant Garde” with the release of another new album “Omerta” on June 28th. The UK’s long running publication Blues & Soul has just afforded it a 4 star review in its new issue (1027) which hit stores’ shelves yesterday. We’re not at liberty to reproduce the entire review here, but it can be read on Page 47 if you pick up a copy from selected stores, or indeed order it worldwide via their official WEBSITE

We have also learned that among the other publications to confirm their intent to feature the release is the globally renowned MOJO Magazine. You will be able to read what they have to say at the time of the album’s release.

As co:owner of Six2Six Records, M.I. has also made significant moves into the world of film making. As an actor, soundtrack producer, writer and the driving force behind the new sub division Six2Six Films, he appeared in last year’s “Swiss Banks”, a co-production with European affiliates SWC Records.

His new film “Six2Six” which co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee has been selected by the Hip Hop Film Festival, run by Ralph McDaniels and Julien Lockhart, to be screened in NYC in August. Meanwhile, M.I. is in his home city of Baltimore shooting scenes for another new movie called “Can’t Live Without My Radio”.
