US online ‘Da-What’ runs a series called Da Five Finger Discount where artists discuss five tracks they’ve released which have significant meaning to them and the reasons for their importance.
In the main they will relate to tracks from a new EP or album, but can include others from their careers which they felt were of particular note.
The latest in the series just published features NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble. The duo have known each other since the 90’s when originally rap battle rivals turned partners in rhyme and tagging in upstate NY.
However due to Frost’s subsequent re-location they pursued solo careers until re-uniting this year for their first official collaborative release, the EP “Veteran” out this Friday, November 18th, a taster for an album due out in 2017.
In the feature, the pair include two singles from the EP. “Leave It Alone”, a tribute to Sean Price, features Ruste Juxx and Nobi while “Step Up” coincided with the launch of their first official music video last week.
Frost also highlights a previous project with Rakim’s son Tahmell, whiile in his dual role as a producer, Chop discusses his collaboration with Tom Gist.
