In the past week, UK journalist Peter Johnstone chopped it up with eastcoast hip hop producer Frost Gamble in the lead up to his new album with rapper Tone Chop “Respect Is Earned Not Given” releasing on September 29th.
Relocated from NY State to Canada some years back, Frost discusses his earliest days in hip hop, from breakdancing to Mc-ing and ultimately crate digging and production. Having been a long time associate of Chop dating back to a friendly rap battle rivalry, he discusses the progression from their “Veteran” Ep of last year to the new album.
He then speaks on his general approach to production, the factors involved working with different artists, the various considerations when writing together, and explains why his greatest moment to date came via an endorsement by the legendary Rakim.
In addition to two albums this year with Detroit’s ZotheJerk and the new release with Chop, Frost has been much in demand. He has just wrapped a new project with Tragedy Khadafi, has recently remixed tracks for Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang and during the interview reveals details of his new solo album nearing completion “I Missed My Bus” which includes guest artists Skyzoo, Ras Kass, KXNG Crooked, Ruste Juxx, Rah Digga and many more.
