For the benefit of anyone who temporarily left the planet in the last 24 hours, NY State rapper & producer duo Tone Chop and Frost Gamble released their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” yesterday through Miami label 22 Entertainment.

Whether your preferred format is physical CD, digital mp3 or streaming, it’s all covered from a wide range of stores including Amazon, iTunes & Spotify

Given the pair started out in the late 90’s, it’s unsurprising that their style draws from the core principles of that era while not being stuck in it – a focus on meaningful rhymes and flow skills, battle bars mixed with the art of storytelling. The polished production fuses classic and contemporary sounds with a sprinkling of turntablism which in itself is an almost forgotten artform.

It’s inaccurate to apply labels such as old or new school to the genre generally as that depends on context and perspective. For Millenials who have been largely force fed a diet of bland, superficial, commercialised mediocrity passing itself off as culturally progressive – backed by a mainstream media who’ll literally say & write everything and anything to stay ‘on message’ and retain a writing gig – then Chop & Frost’s style IS new school to that generation.

The same generation were the catalyst in the resurgence of 90’s culture in recent years as college kids picked up on the classics for the first time in specialist clubs, where of course it all began in the first place.

To progress and evolve for the better rather than just for the sake of change, history has to be understood – evolution with core guiding principles brings longevity, without them a slow death follows. As such, “Respect Is Earned Not Given” plays an essential educational role for today, acknowledged by the three most recent reviews :
