East coast duo, MC M.I. and DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – release their new album “Omerta” on June 28th through their label Six2Six Records.
The album has a theme in the tradtions of a Prince Paul, Little Brother or Kool Keith release in days gone past. The pair draw on their respective Italian and Russian heritage to adopt roles in a series of audio vignettes with familiar cultural reference points. The mafiosa inference is presented metaphorically to relay comparative situations.
This creative approach is consistent with M.I.’s additional focus in the world of movie making. Acting, film writing and film production has been a new venture since the release of “Swiss Banks” last year, a co:production with their European affiliates SWC Records.
A new movie “Six2Six” which has a completely original storyline with no relation to the label itself co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Bust Bee, and will be screened by Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival at the National Black Theater in NYC during the first week of August.
Currently the rapper has been filming scenes for a comedy called “Can’t Live Without My Radio” due for release in 2017.
London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on the phone with them recently to discuss the new ventures, and the feature has just been published in British Hip Hop – read it HERE
Constant Deviants play Baltimore’s “Castaways” on Saturday June 25th before travelling the following day to spend the week in NYC meeting with press and appearing on various radio stations including Sirius XM, Beatminerz, Bodega Cold Kutz, Classic Storm and RapStation.
