Been quite a 12 months for hip hop producer Frost Gamble, originally from NY State but now resident in Canada.

Having signed with Miami’s 22 Entertainment, whose back catalogue includes Royce da 5’9″, Fashawn, Joe Budden, J-Kwon and KXNG Crooked, his first release on his new deal was the “Veteran” EP with long time sparring partner, east coast rapper Tone Chop, in November ’16.

This was followed quickly by the album “Black Beach” with another of his Nostalgia Clic stable of artists, Detroit rapper ZotheJerk. Release in May this year and featuring KXNG Crooked, Guilty Simpson, Boldy James and Sadat X, it received worldwide media coverage including a review in the renowned MOJO Magazine.

As we enter the latter half of 2017, he has two more releases on the immediate horizon. September 29th is the date for the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” again with Tone Chop and featuring Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, Tragedy Khadafi and rap battling phenomenon D.N.A.

This will be followed on October 20th with the “Rare Fabric” EP, a joint venture with Tragedy Khadafi. Meantime, he’s been recording new music with Horseshoe Gang, Royce da 5’9″ and is also near completion of a solo producer album “I Missed My Bus” which includes guest feature artists Ruste Juxx, Ras Kass, Skyzoo, Rah Digga, Guilty Simpson, KXNG Crooked and many more.

Midwest journalist Sinseer took time out recently to speak with Frost about his earliest days in production, his influences and style, the historical relationship with Tone Chop and Zo, his tie up with the label and of course all of his past and future projects.

In the past week, UK journalist Peter Johnstone chopped it up with eastcoast hip hop producer Frost Gamble in the lead up to his new album with rapper Tone Chop “Respect Is Earned Not Given” releasing on September 29th.

Relocated from NY State to Canada some years back, Frost discusses his earliest days in hip hop, from breakdancing to Mc-ing and ultimately crate digging and production. Having been a long time associate of Chop dating back to a friendly rap battle rivalry, he discusses the progression from their “Veteran” Ep of last year to the new album.

He then speaks on his general approach to production, the factors involved working with different artists, the various considerations when writing together, and explains why his greatest moment to date came via an endorsement by the legendary Rakim.

In addition to two albums this year with Detroit’s ZotheJerk and the new release with Chop, Frost has been much in demand. He has just wrapped a new project with Tragedy Khadafi, has recently remixed tracks for Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang and during the interview reveals details of his new solo album nearing completion “I Missed My Bus” which includes guest artists Skyzoo, Ras Kass, KXNG Crooked, Ruste Juxx, Rah Digga and many more.

veteran-therealhiphop

In the lead up to the release of their new EP “Veteran”, NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble spoke with Chicago based journalist Sherron Shabazz, the editor of US online ‘The Real Hip Hop’.

The pair first met as rivals in Binghamton’s rap battle scene during the 90’s before eventually teaming up, however due to Frost’s re-location they then pursued solo careers while keeping in touch with the occasional collaboration. The EP represents the duo’s first official extended release, a warm up to an album scheduled for 2017.

The interview addresses the recording process of the EP and how they came to the decision to finally work on a more extensive project. The subject matters then broaden as they give their thoughts on the new wave of “drug rappers” and the effect on today’s youth, the issue of emcees using writers, educating the next generation of rappers about the pioneers, the benefit to the scene of contemporary artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole and much more

It’s an interesting perspective on today’s hip hop by two artists who have put in the hard yards, and you can read the entire feature HERE

Once rivals in upstate NY’s rap battle scene, Binghamton rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble have released their new EP “Veteran” today through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

The pair became partners in rhyme and tagging during the 90’s before Frost’s relocation saw them pursue solo careers.

Lyrically on point through a series of punchline bars and hard hitting rhymes, dues are paid to the pioneers and a previous era while still embracing the future. 7 tracks deep, “Veteran” represents the true essence of a modern age and lays down a marker for next year.
