Having subsequently moved to Canada, Frost continued to contribute to Chop’s various projects though both pursue solo careers that have seen them work with J-Ro, Tom Gist, Sadat-X, Tahmell and Jinx Da Juvy.

The new release represents their first official collaboration together and is a little early taster of what’s to come in 2017.

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

ATM-7thBoro

West Coast hiphop crew Horseshoe Gang sat down with Scyren Joseph from online publication 7th Boro recently in the build up towards the release of their fourth studio album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th – available to pre-order on iTunes HERE

In another typically frank and in-depth interview, the group chopped it up about the new album and how it compares to their considerable back catalogue including mixatpes and EP’s, the automatic association of their name with their elder brother KXNG Crooked while being dubbed “The Left Coast Slaughterhouse”, and how with them being brothers, the family dynamic affects the creative process.

The discussion moves on to the underlying messages within the new album with much of it addressing current hip hop, before sedgewaying into the subject of the culture’s position within today’s mainstream society and whether independents feel they must compete against, or utilise a more populist approach.

All this & more can be read in the full feature HERE

ATM-SamTheAuthor

Another article about the release just published is this new review by new US online “Sam the Author” run by freelance journalist and author Samuel Odunsi Jr who has written previously for titles such as Dead End Hip Hop.

Only up & running for a couple of months, Sam’s focus is on music and film reviews

Quoted from the review, “The album is relentless with lyricism and interesting production choices that range from the old school to the futuristic.“, you can read his full appraisal HERE

Just last week the group released their third official single from the album, “Shoe-icide Squad”, which addresses the familiar issues of #BlackLivesMatter with their trademark lyrical firepower backed by a bangin G Funk beat courtesy of Tabu (Kendrick Lamar, Aftermath). Check out the stream
