While outlining their future plans together, Frost goes on to speak about his other projects including the release of the album “Black Beach” with Detroit’s ZotheJerk in May, his new collaboration EP with Tragedy Khadafi “Rare Fabric” in October and a new solo project releasing early next year which includes guest artists KXNG Crooked, Rah Digga, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Guilty Simpson and Ruste Juxx.

The full interview can be heard on Mixcloud, and listen out for Chase spinning a few exclusive first plays from the album
