If you where tuned into the late 90’s indy 12″ boom, you probably remember the Constant Deviants. The Baltimore/NY duo which consists of emcee M.I. and producer DJ Cutt released the jazzy underground burner “Can’t Stop” in 1998, which built them a solid fan base that inspired them to start their own label Six2Six Records, which specializes in limited pressing and rare vinyl from their catalog and extended fam. In 2012, Constant Deviants are preparing to release their long-awaited LP, “Diamond” an album that has been carefully crafted to represent the eras they have witnessed.
Baltimore MC Substantial jumped back into the scene with this fall’s Home Is Where The Art Is, a personal and powerful testament to Stan B. Robinson’s development as a man and MC. Fans and critics seem to concur. To keep the momentum going on this fantastic LP, Substantial and Mello Music Group drop the uplifting video for “See Hear."
Today, as MHz Legacy continues to celebrate the release of their long awaited, self-titled debut album, they're taking part in the tradition of Throwback Thursday with one of the rarest songs from their vaults,"The Only Weatherman Song." The song, accompanied here by new, exclusive artwork, stands apart as a classic from the early 2000s era of hip-hop and marks one of the only times that Copywrite, El-P, Camu Tao, Tage Future, Cannibal Ox, Jakki Da Motamouth, and Yak Ballz (otherwise known as The Weathermen) were all in one studio at the same time.
2012 has been nothing short of successful for the fast-rising independent hip-hop label Man Bites Dog Records, and now, as the year nears its close, the label is excited to introduce the newest member of its roster, Wais P.
