US online The ReUp Spot has just published a new interview feature with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble ahead of the release of their album “Blach Beach” on May 26th.

The article takes a wider in-depth view of Detroit’s historic music scene and how it became a breeding ground for some exceptional artists in the worlds of jazz, blues, rock, Motown, techno and of course hip hop. It digs deeper into the influence the city’s industrial background and mindset had on artists and their unique approach and identity within various musical forms.

Zo discusses the legacies provided by past and present local artists, from J-Dilla to Danny Brown, while addressing the suggestion that Detroit’s success still relies ultimately on being signed by labels in NYC or LA.

Both Frost and Zo have relocated from their original hometowns on several occasions and they talk about how this helped broaden their horizons, and the rapper explains how the general theme of the album reflecting the current experience for “Black America” crosses State boundaries.

The article concludes with the pair discussing the recording process, the inclusion of featured artists such as Guilty Simpson, KXNG Crooked, Sadat-X and Boldy James….and they also reveal their preference between “Good Times” & “Rappers Delight” !!
