Just before the turn of the year, the UK’s online tv channel OnTrax visited New York and New Jersey to conduct a series of filmed interviews.

They sat down for 5 minutes with Brick City rapper Tru Trilla in the studios owned by local legends Lords of the Underground, and chopped it up about his earliest influences which naturally included the Lords, Naughty by Nature, Lakim Shabazz and Queen Latifah, and his journey starting out in hip hop.

He reveals his own original move from poetry to writing lyrics, and the passion felt in the creative process transferred to the listener, describing music as “art in motion and medicine to the soul” citing the track “I Remember” from his recently released EP “The Seymour Chronicles” as an example of the importance of writing from the heart.

Just published, watch the full interview on Youtube.

Released through New Dawn Records on March 17th, you can stream “The Seymour Chronicles EP” in full on Spotify

Tru will also be releasing his banging new album “God of Barz” through New Dawn Records on May 29th which includes production by Clinton Place (NJ/LA), DNA Beatz (Chicago), Sumerio Square (Barcelona) and the UK’s Chat One. The first single “Word of God” released on March 30th, again available to stream on Spotify

NY state producer Frost Gamble, now a resident of Winnipeg Canada, has become one of the fastest emerging names in the game over the past year.

Having signed with Miami’s 22 Entertainment when his track “Honey” with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk was picked up for the label’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation early in 2016, the release of his “Veteran” EP with long time associate Tone Chop in November 2016 kick started a significant escalation in his career.

In May 2017, he released the album “Black Beach” with ZotheJerk which enjoyed international media coverage and included featuring in the renowned MOJO Magazine. In September he released the album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” with Tone Chop, again receiving worldwide critical acclaim and on October 20th releases another collaborative project, this time the “Rare Fabric” EP with Tragedy Khadafi.

Meantime, he has been working on remix and new music projects with Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang, and in early 2018 will release his new solo album “I Missed My Bus” which includes stellar featured artists including Crooked I, Rah Digga, Conway, Planet Asia, Ruste Juxx, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Guilty Simpson and more.

So what’s behind the story here? Two US publications got in touch with the man to find out.

West coast magazine “Streets Connect” spoke with Frost recently

In the resultant in depth interview feature, they discuss last year’s “Veteran” EP, the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” and the history with Chop which goes back to their time in Binghamton during the 90’s, rap battle rivals who became partners in tagging and developed a brother-like relationship which has survived to this day.

Frost outlines his recording and production techniques, his connections with the featured artists including Kool G Rap, and previews what to expect from the EP with Tragedy Khadafi. He talks about the nature of the working relationship with 22 Entertainment and how this has helped him progress as an artist, and finishes by explaining how he handles the increase on workload and demands of his time while sharing his future aspirations.
