It’s been a remarkable year for NY State producer Frost Gamble, currently resident in Winnipeg, Canada.

Since signing with Miami label 22 Entertainment early in 2016, he has seen his star rise rapidly through a series of releases, and with 2018 looking set to be yet another major step forward in his career, he took time out recently to speak with DJ Lady Su, editor of French magazine “Hip Hop Breath”

Having just returned from NYC where he was with Tone Chop promoting their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given”, including a guest appearance on DJ Eclipse’s Sirius XM ‘Rap Is Outta Control Show’, he reflects on the past 12 months which included the release of the pair’s “Veteran” EP, the album “Black Beach” with Detroit’s ZotheJerk and the EP “Rare Fabric” with Tragedy Khadafi out this Friday, October 20th.

He discusses his current work with Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang and his new album “I Missed My Bus” due out next year which includes luminaries such as Crooked I, Rah Digga, Conway, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Sadat X, Ruste Juxx, Guilty Simpson and many more.

His deal with 22 Ent has been the catalyst for his upward trajectory, and he outlines the nature of their working relationship and benefits this has brought. The one time b-boy and rap battler also gives his views on contemporary hip hop culture and the political situation in the USA seen from the standpoint of an American native now based north of the border.

All of his releases are available from 22 Ent’s BANDCAMP store and as the label are districuted worldwide by The Orchard, you will also find them from Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and many more

New video “Velvet Cake” by northwest London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan, taken from his “F.Y.L.P.M.” EP released earlier this year.

Produced by NCL TM, the beat blasts out a cacophony of brass and soul samples over which DFH gets creative delivering trademark dexterous wordplay and high calibre rhyme schemes. On the track title he simply states “When you’ve had the best red velvet cake from Lords Bakery in Flatbush, Brooklyn, you’ll understand why I named this jawn – definitions of deliciousness“.

Directed by The Ol’ Cyruss in London, the theme of the video is an ode to Ghostface Killah’s “Supreme Clientele” album cover, employing imagery as a pastiche of retro cinema and film noir. Watch it now on Youtube

Da Flyy Hooligan’s new album “S.C.U.M.” featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin releases worldwide on CD and digital formats through Miami label 22 Entertainment on October 27th.
