In the lead up to the release of their new EP “Veteran”, NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble spoke with Chicago based journalist Sherron Shabazz, the editor of US online ‘The Real Hip Hop’.

The pair first met as rivals in Binghamton’s rap battle scene during the 90’s before eventually teaming up, however due to Frost’s re-location they then pursued solo careers while keeping in touch with the occasional collaboration. The EP represents the duo’s first official extended release, a warm up to an album scheduled for 2017.

The interview addresses the recording process of the EP and how they came to the decision to finally work on a more extensive project. The subject matters then broaden as they give their thoughts on the new wave of “drug rappers” and the effect on today’s youth, the issue of emcees using writers, educating the next generation of rappers about the pioneers, the benefit to the scene of contemporary artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole and much more

It’s an interesting perspective on today’s hip hop by two artists who have put in the hard yards, and you can read the entire feature HERE

The EP was released on November 18th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment and includes the single “Leave It Alone”, a tribute to Sean Price featuring Ruste Juxx which is also discussed during the interview.

NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble release their first collaborative EP “Veteran” through Seven 13 Music & Ent on November 18th. Available on pre-order via iTunes

Originally rivals in upstate NY’s rap battle scene during the 90’s, they became partners in rhyme, tagging and production. Already on record as crediting the wider hip hop culture and elements as being the catalyst for them to pick up the mic, US online The ReUp Spot sat down with them recently for their perspective on the evolution of hip hop over the past two decades.

The feature is an insightful historical record, as the pair discuss their own involvement in music, graffiti and breakdancing at a time when by comparison to today, the elements had a more prominent and influential role in the wider culture.

Subjects addressed act as a historical snapshot of the changes which have taken place. The switch from vinyl to Serato, the elevation of hip hop music, fashions and art elevated from the underground to the broader commercial world, and the emergence of the various sub genres which now exist.

Focusing on the new release, they discuss the reasons for collaborating officially for the first time after all these years, their previous solo releases and the impact of signing with Seven 13.

The article will likely be of extra interest to a younger generation, typically fed a very narrow representation by today’s media. There is more to it than that – go to the source, adapt and progress. “If you know whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go” James Baldwin
