Press Release - New Shi 360 Album: Shalom Haters


Press Release - New Shi 360 Album: Shalom Haters

SHI 360 is anything but your typical hip hop artist. With the credo 'Don't be afraid to think,' SHI 360 combines deft rhymes and fresh, genre-shifting beats with bold social and political messages that spread harmony and peace worldwide. His newest album, "Shalom Haters", arrives on the global hip hop scene at a time when the media has been astoundingly silent in response to recent rocket attacks on Israeli civilians.

'Much of the records songs are a desperate plea for truth in media reporting as well as a cry to stop the seemingly endless violence in the Middle East. The record is a mix of various hip hop styles including American underground and Israeli club. The album's lead single, "Forgive & Forget" reaffirms both sides' shared human suffering, acknowledging 'I see your pain/I know you see my pain' and urges people to rise up against media-perpetuated lies ' 'How do you think/The cameraman is close to the fire' The work is for hire/Showing what they want to inspire.'

SHI 360's hard-hitting lyrics are balanced by a piano-driven beats and guest features from global emcees including the much anticipated return of one of Israel's most celebrated rapper, Booskills. Booskills is responsible for the biggest Israeli club hits through his collaborative work with Subliminal. Surrounded by controversy, Booskills highly anticipated album, "Two Worlds" was never released which left the Israeli market waiting for more from this talented artist. Booskills feature on SHI 360's "Shalom Haters" title track has been a long time coming and finally puts an end to a 7 year wait

Bringing information strikingly missing from today's headlines to the forefront of attention, 'Shalom Haters' challenges media consumers to reassess what they're being told and instead to focus on our shared goal to 'build a stronger tomorrow" and to finally 'put our hands out, and our arms down.'

SHI 360 has sold platinum records in his collaboration with rapper Subliminal and TACT. Significantly influencing the modern Israeli hip hop scene, his appeal is international. His collaboration with the TACT All-Stars album was a ground-breaking, commercial triumph that captivated Israel's music world, selling gold in its first day of release making music history in Israel.

Shalom Haters will be released on January 24th under Shemspeed/360 Music Records. The first single and music video 'Forgive and Forget' is available as a free download on shemspeed.com and at SHI 360's official website, shi360music.com.

MP3: Constant Deviants - "Forever"


MP3: Constant Deviants - "Forever"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

In late 2011, rapper M.I. and producer DJ Cutt, collectively known as Constant Deviants, released Platinum: The Mixtape, a project that found the Brooklyn- and Baltimore-based duo mixing all original tracks with a handful of industry favorites. The project did well to show off the duo's range and diversity, important in today's ever-changing hip-hop landscape, where genres are defined and re-defined weekly, monthly, and yearly.

Certain sounds are timeless, though, and with their latest string of all-original non-album tracks – a handful of songs that will precede their forthcoming Diamond album – Constant Deviants are taking it back to their roots. And with their latest leak, "Forever," the duo, as the title suggests, shows their greatest strength: timeless, boom-bap-driven hip-hop.

DJ Cutt produces a soft, electronic-sampling beat for M.I., and he graces it with his own smooth flow and boastful lyrics, a combination that pulls from the chemistry the pair have developed over years working together. "This song is an everyday Constant Deviants collabo," explains M.I. "Cutt sent me the beat; I wrote the verses, and we came together to lay the hook." As for the message of the song, much like their classic sound, Constant Deviants, who have built a strong following selling vinyl independently around the world, are here to stay. "We will be here forever!" exclaims M.I.
