Nine5Four Magazine is a bi-monthly publishing in physical and digital print formats with bases in the US and Canada.

With extensive subscriber numbers worldwide they focus on emerging talent in music, acting, modelling, sport and general entertainment.

Their November 2016 issue has just been published, including a two page feature on NY State rapper Tone Chop & Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble who have just released their new EP “Veteran” through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment. Available to buy from iTunes

The feature headlined “Soldiers in Arms” traces their history together, dating back to their original rivalry in NY State’s rap battle scene during the 90’s to their becoming partners in rhyme and tagging around the local area. The pair discuss their solo careers and the reasons behind the decision to finally release an official collaborative project after all these years.

They also speak on the wider hip hop culture, the changes and evolution that has taken place over the past two decades and the importance they place on acknowledging the part played by the pioneers. Addressing the comparisons between commercial and underground or “traditional” hip hop, there is an acceptance of inevitable divergence while still maintaining the importance of upholding those traditions.

In effect, to educate a younger generation that there is more to hip hop than the imagery and representation typically served as the daily diet by mainstream media. Frost also discusses the role sample clearance issues played on the emergence of various sub-genres, before ending the interview on an optimistic note for hip hop’s future given the apparent upturn in interest and passion by a new generation for the classic sound and traditional elements.

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.
