New single “My Negus” released today by Detroit rapper ZotheJerk featuring legendary Random Axe frontman Guilty Simpson.

It’s the second to be taken from his new album “Black Beach” produced entirely by Frost Gamble, a prolific beatmaker originally from NY State but now based in Winnipeg, and follows “Risk vs Reward” featuring Sadat X.

Out on May 26th, the album also features KXNG Crooked, Boldy James, Young Bleed and Tone Chop. Politically charged, the themes are Zo’s perspective on today’s “Black America”, an MC in receipt of a “Humanitarian of the Year” award for mentoring work in the community. The quality is not lost on internationally renowned print publication MOJO Magazine who will feature “Black Beach” in their June issue.

US online The ReUp Spot has just published a new interview feature with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble ahead of the release of their album “Blach Beach” on May 26th.

The article takes a wider in-depth view of Detroit’s historic music scene and how it became a breeding ground for some exceptional artists in the worlds of jazz, blues, rock, Motown, techno and of course hip hop. It digs deeper into the influence the city’s industrial background and mindset had on artists and their unique approach and identity within various musical forms.

Zo discusses the legacies provided by past and present local artists, from J-Dilla to Danny Brown, while addressing the suggestion that Detroit’s success still relies ultimately on being signed by labels in NYC or LA.

Both Frost and Zo have relocated from their original hometowns on several occasions and they talk about how this helped broaden their horizons, and the rapper explains how the general theme of the album reflecting the current experience for “Black America” crosses State boundaries.

The article concludes with the pair discussing the recording process, the inclusion of featured artists such as Guilty Simpson, KXNG Crooked, Sadat-X and Boldy James….and they also reveal their preference between “Good Times” & “Rappers Delight” !!

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.
