Binghamton rapper Tone Chop & producer Frost Gamble, now relocated to Winnipeg Canada, release their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” tomorrow, Friday September 29th through Miami label 22 Entertainment.

It’s the follow up to their “Veteran” EP released in November last year at which time the pair spoke with The Word Is Bond Rap Radio Show host Chase March about their careers to date and future plans.

With the new release imminent, they all caught up again earlier this week to discuss the album and the developments over the near past year which have brought them to this point. The “dynamic duo” speak about having featured artists such as Kool G Rap on the album, the poignant story behind the track “Bing Stories”, Chop’s view on current rap addressed in “It’s Hip Hop” and “Beat Knocking” and introducing classic hip hop artists, music and history to their children.

While outlining their future plans together, Frost goes on to speak about his other projects including the release of the album “Black Beach” with Detroit’s ZotheJerk in May, his new collaboration EP with Tragedy Khadafi “Rare Fabric” in October and a new solo project releasing early next year which includes guest artists KXNG Crooked, Rah Digga, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Guilty Simpson and Ruste Juxx.

The full interview can be heard on Mixcloud, and listen out for Chase spinning a few exclusive first plays from the album

In addition to Kool G Rap, there are also guest appearances by Planet Asia, rap battling phenomenon DNA, Canadian upcomer White Rhino and Tragedy Khadafi
