The new album “Black Beach” by Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and NY state producer Frost Gamble, now resident in Winnipeg Canada, releases on Friday May 26th through 22 Entertainment.

It represents Zo’s social commentary on the experience for many in today’s Black America, politically charged it strikes an intelligent balance of addressing a number of very real issues while still offering positive solutions. The musical backdrop provided by Frost mixes soul and edgier hip hop beats to catch the mood swings perfectly, adding to his reputation as one of the fastest emerging producers in the genre.

US online magazine Pop Break picks up on these nuances in their review of the album just published, describing it as “one of the best examples of ‘Grown Man Rap’ we’ve heard in a while”. Affording the release an 8/10 rating, you can read their full appraisal HERE

Featuring Slaughterhouse frontman KXNG Crooked, Random Axe’s Guilty Simpson, Brand Nubian Sadat X, and Boldy James, “Black Beach” will be available from all digital stores including Spotify and iTunes, while a special Deluxe edition including bonus cuts and instrumentals will be available exclusively from Bandcamp.

The first single to be released from the album was “Risk vs Reward” ft Sadat X. Check out the stream on Soundcloud

Once rivals in Binghamton NY’s rap battle scene during the 90’s, Tone Chop & Frost Gamble subsequently became partners in rhyme and tagging.

On relocating to Winnipeg, Frost focused solely on production, working with J-Ro, Sadat-X, and Rakim’s son Tahmell. Earlier this year his joint “Honey” with ZotheJerk appeared on Seven 13’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation which also featured Royce da 5’9″, Horseshoe Gang, Crooked I & Kid Vishis

Meanwhile back in upstate NY, rapper and producer Chop released an extensive series of mixtapes whether solo or as part of the group Binghamton’s Most Wanted. He also supplied the beat for Tom Gist’s “Momma”

The pair decided to re-unite for their first official collaborative release with the resultant EP “Veteran” dropping November 18th through Seven 13 Music & Ent (available on iTunes)

Contributor Angelo Gingerello has just run the rule over it for online magazine Pop Break, and you can read his in-depth review which affords the EP an 8/10 rating HERE


From the EP, they have already released two singles. “Leave It Alone” featuring Ruste Juxx and Nobi is a tribute to the late Sean Price, while only this week they launched their first official video for “Step Up”. Check them out
