Constant Deviants, consisting of emcee M.I. and producer DJ Cutt, are excited to release “Gotta Get Paid (Remix).” The track serves as the lead single from their upcoming Platinum: The Mixtape, which will serve as a precursor to their forthcoming album, Diamond, and will be released via their Six2Six label and offered to fans for free download.

This part-Baltimore, part-NYC duo got their start in 1995, and five years later, M.I. was signed to Arista Records and brought Cutt on board as his sole producer. Since then, they’ve worked with the likes of N.O.R.E., Rick Ross, and Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records. Never ones to sit still, the Deviants decided to start their own record label, Six2Six Records, in 2009, with the intention of cultivating their signature sound. Enter Constant Deviants’ new release, Platinum: The Mixtape. The seventeen-track project is stacked with a slew of freestyles from M.I as he raps over industry beats along with 2 original exclusives.

“Gotta Get Paid (Remix),” a flip of a song that will ultimately appear on Diamond, finds CDS teamed up with Spain’s own D Cut Love, which resulted in a unique collaboration stemming from an artist-fan connection. “Being that we have such a personal relationship with our audience, we like to give them a chance to become a part of hip-hop history,” says M.I. “D Cut Love is one of the dopest producers I’ve heard from overseas.”

Despite the seemingly commonplace title, “Gotta Get Paid (Remix)” is more about CDS achieving financial enlightenment than about materialistic excess. “It explains the feeling of doing music your whole life, and making the decision to stop ‘shopping for a deal’ and finally selling your product,” explains M.I. Almost unrecognizable from the original, the remix track features M.I.’s laid-back lyrical flows over a cushy and soulful synth chops, not to mention a well-placed KRS-One vocal sample on the hook.
