Long time eastcoast sparring partners Tone Chop and Frost Gamble release their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” through 22 Entertainment on September 29th.

Rapper Chop’s experienced mastery of the mic combines the art of storytelling with fierce lyrical salvos, his trademark delivery unleashed through a series of powerful verses and snappy hooks. Guest featured artists Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, Tragedy Khadafi, Canadian upcomer White Rhino and the States’ most viewed online rap battler D.N.A. deliver front and centre with fire in the bars as expected, hard rhymes and sharp wordplay for the hip hop connoisseur.

Regarded as one of the fastest emerging producer names on the scene, Frost Gamble’s beats are infused with soul, r&b, funk, dub and electronica. Mashing up samples, loops, turntablism and original recordings, the spirit’s traditional, the result’s contemporary.

UK online HHK Magazine spoke with the pair as part of their “25 Facts” series which takes a behind the scenes look at the making of the album and offers previously unknown information about the artists.
