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.

A couple of weeks ago in the lead up to the release of their debut album “Everything 050”, New Jersey hip hop group 050 Boyz jumped on the phone with London’s multi-genre publication Guestlist Network.

The publication is produced online and as a monthly newspaper covering music news, events, clubs, tours and fashion from a national and international perspective

The trio of Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK formed as a group in 2011, but have been involved in the Garden State’s hip hop scene since the Golden Era of the 1990’s discussed their early days and life in Newark before addressing their aims for the group and also for their individual endeavours.

The interview moves on to the influence daily life in New Jersey has in their music and the subject matter they address, specifically within the new album, and how they differentiate traditional hip hop culture in comparison to that represented in the more mainstream commercial sector.

The interview concludes by the group explaining the approach to the production on the album, handled entirely by long time associate Clinton Place – aka DJ Jamal #9. One of the most in-depth interviews given by the group in recent times which you can read in full HERE

Earlier this week, the album which also features Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Ib the Druid, Tha Advocate, Fam (Rottin Razkals) and many more was released and is available from iTUNES
