Earlier this week, Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble sat down with Prox Centauri, the editor of Michigan’s online “Inside the Rift”, ahead of the release of their new album “Black Beach” on May 26th.

The discussion centres on the conceptualization of the project, the initial approach and recording process given the various sessions took place in Detroit, Kansas and Ohio.

They also touch upon the politically charged subject matter evident in the lyrics throughout which address a range of social issues including racism, social engineering and empowerment, before moving on to outline their working relationship and previous project “Muscle Shoals” designed as a tribute to Luther Ingram.

In closing, as Frost originates from New York State, Zo explains how the album represents Detroit, NY and the States generally as the subjects he addresses are more universal in nature.


As an additional bonus, Frost laced Inside the Rift with an exclusive hip hop mix, and you can check out the audio stream on Soundcloud

“Black Beach” includes features by Sadat-X, KXNG Crooked, Boldy James, Guilty Simspon, Young Bleed and many more, and can be pre-ordered on iTunes HERE

The duo release a brand new video for a bonus cut “Axe Somebody” tomorrow, Friday April 7th and are currently conducting a number of interviews with media in the States, UK and Europe. Keep up to date with their news on Twitter @TheJerkNation & @FrostGamble and over on their joint Facebook Page
