US online ‘Da-What’ runs a series called Da Five Finger Discount where artists discuss five tracks they’ve released which have significant meaning to them and the reasons for their importance.

In the main they will relate to tracks from a new EP or album, but can include others from their careers which they felt were of particular note.

The latest in the series just published features NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble. The duo have known each other since the 90’s when originally rap battle rivals turned partners in rhyme and tagging in upstate NY.

However due to Frost’s subsequent re-location they pursued solo careers until re-uniting this year for their first official collaborative release, the EP “Veteran” out this Friday, November 18th, a taster for an album due out in 2017.

On relocating to Winnipeg, Frost focused solely on production, working with J-Ro, Sadat-X, and Rakim’s son Tahmell. Earlier this year his joint “Honey” with ZotheJerk appeared on Seven 13’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation which also featured Royce da 5’9″, Horseshoe Gang, Crooked I & Kid Vishis

Meanwhile back in upstate NY, rapper and producer Chop released an extensive series of mixtapes whether solo or as part of the group Binghamton’s Most Wanted. He also supplied the beat for Tom Gist’s “Momma”

NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble release their first collaborative EP “Veteran” through Seven 13 Music & Ent on November 18th. Available on pre-order via iTunes

Originally rivals in upstate NY’s rap battle scene during the 90’s, they became partners in rhyme, tagging and production. Already on record as crediting the wider hip hop culture and elements as being the catalyst for them to pick up the mic, US online The ReUp Spot sat down with them recently for their perspective on the evolution of hip hop over the past two decades.

The feature is an insightful historical record, as the pair discuss their own involvement in music, graffiti and breakdancing at a time when by comparison to today, the elements had a more prominent and influential role in the wider culture.

Subjects addressed act as a historical snapshot of the changes which have taken place. The switch from vinyl to Serato, the elevation of hip hop music, fashions and art elevated from the underground to the broader commercial world, and the emergence of the various sub genres which now exist.

Focusing on the new release, they discuss the reasons for collaborating officially for the first time after all these years, their previous solo releases and the impact of signing with Seven 13.

The article will likely be of extra interest to a younger generation, typically fed a very narrow representation by today’s media.
