Constant Deviants “Gangster Boogie” Ode From The Diamond Album
Brooklyn meets Baltimore in an explosive collaboration as the dynamic duo Constant Deviants drops their highly anticipated album “Diamond” on November 20th, 2012. Comprising talented emcee M.I. and skilled producer DJ Cutt, Constant Deviants have been paving their way in the music industry with a series of successful 12″ and 7″ singles on their own imprint, Six2Six records. Now, with the release of “Diamond,” the duo showcases their raw chemistry and undeniable talent that sets them apart in the hip-hop landscape. Leading the way is the single “Gangster Boogie,” a true gem that encapsulates the essence of Constant Deviants’ sound. The track brilliantly samples Freddie Hubbard’s “Red Clay,” a nod to A Tribe Called Quest’s classic “Suck N@gga,” providing the perfect backdrop for M.I. to unleash his lyrical prowess. With captivating verses and soulful beats, “Gangster Boogie” is a testament to the duo’s musical synergy and sets the tone for the entire album.
The journey of Constant Deviants began in 1998 when they burst onto the scene with their anthem “Can’t Stop,” a heartfelt ode to hip-hop that instantly caught the attention of fans and critics alike. The single laid the foundation for their loyal fan base, leading to the formation of their own label, SIX2SIX Records, and setting them on a path of musical greatness.
Fast forward 14 years to their latest album “Diamond,” and Constant Deviants are revisiting their classic track “Can’t Stop” with a sequel aptly named “Won’t Stop.” This heartfelt song serves as a letter to hip-hop, with M.I. pouring his heart and soul into the lyrics, recounting the story of how he fell in love with the art form that would define his life’s journey. DJ Cutt’s impeccable production skills bring the essence of NYC in 2012, striking a perfect balance between the vintage and the contemporary.
The music video for “Won’t Stop,” directed by Jimmy Powell and IHenry, beautifully captures the classic feel of the track, featuring shots of M.I. and Cutt making their way across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and exploring the vibrant streets of New York City. The visuals serve as a perfect complement to the song’s nostalgic yet modern essence.
