Earlier this week, Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble sat down with Prox Centauri, the editor of Michigan’s online “Inside the Rift”, ahead of the release of their new album “Black Beach” on May 26th.

The discussion centres on the conceptualization of the project, the initial approach and recording process given the various sessions took place in Detroit, Kansas and Ohio.

They also touch upon the politically charged subject matter evident in the lyrics throughout which address a range of social issues including racism, social engineering and empowerment, before moving on to outline their working relationship and previous project “Muscle Shoals” designed as a tribute to Luther Ingram.

In closing, as Frost originates from New York State, Zo explains how the album represents Detroit, NY and the States generally as the subjects he addresses are more universal in nature.
