In the past week, UK journalist Peter Johnstone chopped it up with eastcoast hip hop producer Frost Gamble in the lead up to his new album with rapper Tone Chop “Respect Is Earned Not Given” releasing on September 29th.

Relocated from NY State to Canada some years back, Frost discusses his earliest days in hip hop, from breakdancing to Mc-ing and ultimately crate digging and production. Having been a long time associate of Chop dating back to a friendly rap battle rivalry, he discusses the progression from their “Veteran” Ep of last year to the new album.

He then speaks on his general approach to production, the factors involved working with different artists, the various considerations when writing together, and explains why his greatest moment to date came via an endorsement by the legendary Rakim.

In addition to two albums this year with Detroit’s ZotheJerk and the new release with Chop, Frost has been much in demand. He has just wrapped a new project with Tragedy Khadafi, has recently remixed tracks for Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang and during the interview reveals details of his new solo album nearing completion “I Missed My Bus” which includes guest artists Skyzoo, Ras Kass, KXNG Crooked, Ruste Juxx, Rah Digga and many more.

“Respect Is Earned Not Given” is available to pre-order on iTunes and in both physical and digital formats on Bandcamp

The two singles released to date are “Walk the Walk” ft Kool G Rap and “Guillotine Chop” ft White Rhino and Planet Asia. Check them out

Long time eastcoast sparring partners Tone Chop and Frost Gamble release their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” through 22 Entertainment on September 29th.

Rapper Chop’s experienced mastery of the mic combines the art of storytelling with fierce lyrical salvos, his trademark delivery unleashed through a series of powerful verses and snappy hooks. Guest featured artists Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, Tragedy Khadafi, Canadian upcomer White Rhino and the States’ most viewed online rap battler D.N.A. deliver front and centre with fire in the bars as expected, hard rhymes and sharp wordplay for the hip hop connoisseur.

Regarded as one of the fastest emerging producer names on the scene, Frost Gamble’s beats are infused with soul, r&b, funk, dub and electronica. Mashing up samples, loops, turntablism and original recordings, the spirit’s traditional, the result’s contemporary.

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” !!

READ THE FEATURE IN FULL HERE

In the past month, ZotheJerk and Frost Gamble have released the official single “Risk vs Reward” ft Sadat-X and a brand new video for the bonus cut “Axe Somebody”.
