Omerta-BritishHipHop

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.

Well, it’s not often you get a genuinely good laugh doing this job, but just occasionally something turns up…..

Earlier this week, MC M.I. from Constant Deviants jumped on the phone with DJ D-Money, host of the weekly Fresh Juice Radio Show based out of Washington State.

The pair began by discussing the group’s new album “Omerta” which releases on June 28th, and then moved on to the rapper’s new additional focus of movie making. As co:owner of Six2Six Records, M.I. has become more involved in acting, film writing and film production, and has set up a new subsidiary Six2Six Films.

A new movie “Six2Six” will be screened at Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC during August, and co:starring with M.I. is Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee. Some of the plot line is explained before the Baltimore MC reveals he is near completion of another new film, this time a comedy, called “Can’t Live Without My Radio”.

Then comes a regular section of the show where rappers play the radio version of the board game “What?”. Among the questions asked are “What do dogs think when owners dress them up in clothes?” and “What would you legalize?”

We’ll just leave that there and you can have a listen to what he says……enjoy…..

You can listen back to the whole show on Fresh Juice’s Mixcloud

You’ll be able to hear the pair on radio again when they’re in NYC during the last week of June at the time of the album’s release, appearing on stations including Sirius XM, Beatminerz Radio, Bodega Cold Kutz and Classic Storm. Meantime, keep up to date with news about Constant Deviants on twitter @Cnstnt_Dvnts (label @Six2SixShift) or over on their Facebook Page
