Constantine the Emcee Debuts New Single on Indie Responsible Media Label



Birmingham, AL — One of the city’s legendary producers and hip hop heads has returned with a riveting new single, just in time for Juneteenth. Today, Constantine the Emcee released Runnin’, featuring spoken word artist, LaShanna, and the Umdabu South African Dance Company, via his Soundcloud artist page. The anticipated single will also be released on all digital streaming platforms.

With injustice at an all-time high, Constantine the Emcee knew it was officially time to release the song to the public, saying:

“We had other music scheduled for release earlier this year, but with COVID-19, the timing wasn’t right. But our current societal climate deems it necessary to share Runnin’ with the public.”

An introspective song magnifying the mind-bending lyricism and production skills of Constantine the Emcee, Runnin’ highlights the dynamic drumming talents of South African musician and dancer, Johannes “Jomo” Xulu, as well as actress and spoken wordsmith, LaShanna Tripp. Runnin’ premiered in the film, Reverse, produced by Alfred Lowe.

Constantine the Emcee is the second artist to debut on the independent Responsible Media LLC (RM) record label, which officially began its quiet journey in 2008. With several singles slated for the artist’s release in the coming weeks, Responsible Media executives admit it has all been a long time coming.
