Constant Deviants is excited to give fans a chance to listen to their new album, Diamond. The full-length release, which will be available at retail (both on vinyl and digitally) this coming January, is now available to fans digital-only, via Constant Deviant's label, Six2Six Records.



The Brooklyn-meets-Baltimore duo has been hard at work on Diamond for over a year now, a process that began with last year's Platinum: The Mixtape release. And while that project found rapper M.I. and producer DJ Cutt doing their thing over some of the industry's most popular and classic beats, Diamond is a return to true form for Constant Deviants – a project that falls not only in line with recent fan-favorite singles like "Fulton Street" (which appears on Diamond), but also in line with the music that the duo has been releasing since they first began working together in a mid-1990s – and have remained true to over a 15-year period that has seen stints with major labels like Arista Records and collaborations with high profile acts like N.O.R.E.

Last week, in announcing today's digital-only release, Constant Deviants released the album's lead single, "Gangster Boogie," a smooth, soul-sample-flipping anthem, and today, Constant Deviants are now giving fans a chance to check out what the full album sounds like, a level of quality that the duo feels stands in accordance with the title of the album. "We went with Diamond because of its rarity and preciousness," says M.I. "Also, Diamonds last forever and have and always will be sought after."

For the duo, rejoining forces last year after ten years of being apart, the album also reflects strong levels of growth, both individually and as a collective. "I believe the separation helped us grow, because we brought back stuff we learned from working with others," explains M.I. of the on-again-off-again dynamic, "but we went back to our original flavor and it worked out awesome. I believe or music will just continue to get better, and, God willing, we will continue to learn."

Today, Pie-Rx Recordz, the new label imprint from A-Wax, is proud to release the Pittsburgh, California, native's latest mixtape, Pie-Rx Muzik. The tape, presented by Southern Hospitality, includes features and production from the likes of Iggy Azalea, YG Hootie, Jahlil Beats, Araab Muzik, Cardiak, and more.



Following his successful album released earlier this summer, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1, A-Wax is working to introduce his own imprint and the artists signed to the label. Unlike previous work from A-Wax, who has earned the respect of, and formed alliances with, the likes of Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, French Montana, and more, A-Wax has turned in a new direction with Pie-Rx Muzik.

"I originally was going to let this new tape have all of my left over music," says A-Wax. "But when I got in the studio it ended up being me collaborating with a lot of my close homies and my own artists signed to Pie-Rx Recordz." The result of those collaborations is a collection of new songs that remain true to themes found throughout A-Wax's previous releases – the struggle and the hustle. "Pie-Rx is, of course, a play on the Pyrex jar used by so many to cook dope," explains Wax of the tape's slick title, "and that's what I did – I just cooked up some dope in the kitchen. Simple: No frills; no cut – just good music; good dope."

In addition to putting the shine on his close collaborators and newly signed label artists, Pie-Rx Muzik, also puts more emphasis on A-Wax as a solo artist – and that's not to say that any of his previous releases lacked his strong fingerprints – they didn't – but only that, with limited high-profile guests (Iggy Azalea and Araab Muzik, Jahlil Beats, Cardiak), it's truly A-Wax's talents that carry Pie-Rx Muzik forward. "I constantly experiment with new styles and my delivery and flow are more on point," remarks A-Wax, of his continued growth as an artist. "My recording techniques are refined and it shows in my confidence."

On December 11, GRAMMY®-nominated, multi-Platinum artist The Game will release his fifth album, Jesus Piece (Interscope Records), and celebrate with an intimate show at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. Jesus Piece, which includes numerous high profile features, follows 2011's The R.E.D. Album - the Compton-bred MC's third album to debut atop the Billboard 200.

Kanye West and Common guest on the album's title track while Chris Brown, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa and Lil Wayne join Game on the lead single, "Celebration," marking a first-time collaboration for these five Platinum-selling artists. The pre-order for the standard and deluxe versions of Jesus Piece launches today on the iTunes Store. See below for track listings and cover art.

"The Jesus Piece album concept came together while I was recording a song that eventually became the title track. It was this song that inspired me to create series of recordings themed around experiences and feelings that I hope everyone can relate to on some level," explains Game. "I have an amazing collection of artists helping me deliver the 'good word' and I hope the fans will receive it as one of their favorite hip-hop albums of the year."

"Celebration," which is available now at all digital retailers, takes its sample from the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony classic "1st of tha Month." All five members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are featured on "Celebration Remix," the first track featured in Game's #SundayService campaign, wherein he drops a new song each Sunday leading up to the album's release.

Game is nothing if not versatile. He's racked up a string of chart-topping, Platinum-certified singles and sold more than 10 million albums. "Game invigorates West Coast rap with grit, ferocity, vivid rhymes [and] crushing beats," noted USA Today in a review of The R.E.D. Album while the Associated Press observed: "he continues to prove that he is a dominant force on the West Coast."

He's built his company, Black Wall Street, into a hood-favorite clothing brand and community-based enterprise that releases mixtapes from developing L.A. artists. Game co-starred opposite Meagan Good and Tyrese in the classic urban film Waist Deep. His new reality show, "Marrying The Game," premiered on VH1.
