New York State sparring partners Tone Chop & Frost Gamble follow last year’s critically acclaimed “Veteran” EP with the release of the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” on September 29th 2017.

Rammed full of quality beats and bars, Frost’s production bridges the classic and contemporary eras combining sampling and original recording techniques infused with soul, r&b, funk, dub and electronica

Armed with a sharp wit, punchline bars and incisive metaphors, Chop’s notoriety as a lyrical marksman has been long established, and he is joined on the new album by featured artists Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, Canadian upcomer White Rhino, the world’s most viewed online rap battler DNA and Tragedy Khadafi with whom Frost is currently recording a new album

Trag and the Beatnuts’ Juju just hollered at Frost’s phone last night !

Omerta-StreetsConnect

In the past few weeks, rapper M.I. from eastcoast hip hop duo Constant Deviants jumped on the phone to westcoast publication Streets Connect Magazine.

In what was an in depth conversation, many subjects were addressed meaning the resultant interview being published in two parts.

The first of these has M.I. going deep into the concept behind the group’s new album “Omerta” which released on June 28th, the production process, and the various inspirations that contributed to its ultimate naissance. This naturally leads the discussion on to his thoughts on the art of songwriting in hip hop today, and the group’s approach to a new project with the emphasis placed on a cohesive construction rather than random beats and bars.

DB2

The Baltimore MC gives an example of writing for a female audience, citing the approach of Mobb Deep, Pete Rock, CL Smooth and Gangstarr to underline the point, and it takes the interview back to the days of when the group first started, the progression from battle raps to the art of storytelling, and the release of their debut single “Competition Catch Speed Knots

Interesting insight to the mindset, and you can read the entire feature HERE
