Omerta-TheRealHipHop

A few weeks back, Baltimore rapper M.I. from Constant Deviants sat down with Sherron Shabazz from The Real Hip Hop in the lead up to the release of the new album “Omerta”.

The group’s fifth full length studio release has a theme running throughout, and the interview begins by discussing the meaning of the title and why it was used before moving on to the concepts behind specific tracks such as “So Underrated” and “DeLorean”.

M.I. has also made a significant move into the world of film making in recent times as an actor, writer and producer. With a new movie “Six2Six” co:starring Treach, Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee set to be screened at Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC next month, the pair talk about how he first became involved in this new venture and the comparisons between the two art forms.

They then discuss his own future plans, his thoughts on the future for Detroit’s hip hop & rap scene, and speaks on the rap battle scene and specifically the Total Slaughter event he attended in early July.
