Following the recent release of their Mixtape, Platinum, and as they continue to prepare for their anticipated new album, Diamond, the Constant Deviants duo of rapper M.I. and producer DJ Cutt continue to leak exclusive, all-original non-album tracks to hold fans over. Premiering today is “Walk of Fame,” a track which stays true to the Deviants’ sample-driven and boom-bap-embracing sound.
Reinforcing their New York roots – “Walk of Fame” contains a Frank Sinatra sample while the drums are sampled from the classic “Impeach The President” break, by the Honey Drippers. Raw, dusty and full of soul, “Walk of Fame” is more of a race to better days than anything. As M.I. says of the message, “We’re just kind of relaying some of the urban plight and expressing a plan to escape!”
