New York State sparring partners Tone Chop & Frost Gamble follow last year’s critically acclaimed “Veteran” EP with the release of the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” on September 29th 2017.

Rammed full of quality beats and bars, Frost’s production bridges the classic and contemporary eras combining sampling and original recording techniques infused with soul, r&b, funk, dub and electronica

Armed with a sharp wit, punchline bars and incisive metaphors, Chop’s notoriety as a lyrical marksman has been long established, and he is joined on the new album by featured artists Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, Canadian upcomer White Rhino, the world’s most viewed online rap battler DNA and Tragedy Khadafi with whom Frost is currently recording a new album

Trag and the Beatnuts’ Juju just hollered at Frost’s phone last night !

The album “Black Beach” is Detroit rapper ZotheJerk’s social commentary on the existence for many in today’s Black America written from his own experiences and cataloguing those of others.

Issues of police brutality, oppression and injustices are laid out like an open wound while balanced by the acceptance of the responsibility a positive paternal role model must shoulder to break the cycle of self inflicted urban decay. He offers messages of hope and aspiration, and walks the walk having received a “Humanitarian of the Year” award for mentoring work in the community.

Lyrically intense, the musical backdrop is provided by one of the fastest emerging producers in hip hop, NYC State’s Frost Gamble who is now resident in Winnipeg, Canada. The crate digger fuses jazz, soul, r&b and electronica for a contemporary take on traditional techniques, with some turntablism thrown into the mix.

US online “The Balcony Life Blog” have just published a review of the album which reflects these different ingredients, and acknowledging the pivotal role they play. Read what they have to say HERE

Meanwhile, Irish journalist Stephen Dorney has included the album in his Weekly Capsule Reviews series. Read his summary HERE

Releasing through 22 Entertainment on May 26th, and available to pre-order on iTunes, the album includes featured guest artists KXNG Crooked, Guilty Simpson, Boldy James, Sadat X, Tone Chop & Young Bleed.

Ande-DataTransmission

A rapid rise to prominence from a new wave of emerging Southern urban artists has seen rapper and producer Ande Bishop make serious moves since his first solo track release “50 Centences” in only January of this year

A further string of single and buzz track launches leading into the Spring culminated in his own American Roulette enterprise signing a partnership deal with expanding US label Seven 13 Entertainment, marked by the release of his introductory EP “Ocean$” on 19th May.

It’s been a remarkable few months for the young artist, and recently journalist Ethan Everton spoke with him for the UK’s multi genre online magazine DataTransmission.

In this feature, the pair discuss that first release “50 Centences” premiered by The Source and the impact it made, including with G Unit themselves. He then speaks about the tie up with Seven 13 Entertainment, how that came about and his production work with stablemate Londn Blue last year on his EP “False Hope”.

They then turn their attention to the new EP, and the reasons behind why he didn’t handle any of the production himself, preferring to hand over to others on the American Roulette roster together with Taylor $upreme, and the influence The Game had in some of the concepts.

While also touching upon his approach to production, the feature concludes by outlining his plans for the next 12 months and the obstacles he’s overcome to achieve his level of progress.

Probably one of the most in depth insights into Ande Bishop’s world to date which you can read HERE

The Ocean$ EP is available now on iTunes

Here is the stream for the track 50 Centences which has acted as the catalyst for a highly impressive first half of 2015

Young up & coming rapper and producer Ande Bishop continues to make a big impression since switching focus to his solo career at the turn of 2015.

It’s not hard to see why he’s being hotly tipped as the one to watch from the new wave of urban music artists emerging from Atlanta and the surrounding Southern States.

A string of single releases and buzz tracks since January have been featured in a broad spectrum of leading online titles in the States, and with the release of his debut “Ocean$ EP” on 19th May, he has started to pick up some international attention. The partnership between his own American Roulette organization and the rapidly expanding Seven 13 Entertainment looks set to be the catalyst for some big moves over the next couple of years

French online magazine “Hip Hop Reviews by Sagittarius” are the latest to give their full endorsement with this newly published 4 Star review of the EP which you can read HERE

Ande-PopCulturez

Rising Southern rapper & producer Ande Bishop is one of the most hotly tipped new talents emerging from the new wave of urban artists who have appeared on the radar recently

A co-founder of the American Roulette organization with others such as Londn Blue, the development of the platform to initially in effect showcase their production and sell beats to generating huge audience figures for their own solo material has been highly impressive.

Only in January this year did Ande come out from behind the desk to start recording his own material, and has enjoyed coverage of multiple track releases in many of the leading online publications in the United States. The partnership deal with Seven 13 Entertainment in the Spring has acted as a further springboard for Roulette to reach an even wider audience, and the release of his introductory EP “Ocean$” on 19th May marks another step forward in what looks like being a very productive path

The UK’s online PopCulturez have just reviewed the EP which you can read HERE

ande6

Ande cites a wide range of influences from his younger days, growing up in a household surrounded by the sounds of classic soul, r&b, hip hop and contemporary rap from the region, and his style has adapted a little of everything. The resulting EP has been noted for its fresh approach, with many eagerly awaiting the forthcoming album scheduled for later in the year

Here’s a taster from the EP, the official video for “Old Jay-Z Videos”

Ande-Shout4Music

A couple weeks after the release of his debut EP “Ocean$”, rising Southern rapper & producer Ande Bishop chopped it up with the UK’s online publication Shout 4 Music.

They discuss his entrance into the music industry starting out in production and he speaks about his influences before providing some further background on his American Roulette organization. He outlines his approach to songwriting and his reasons for switching focus onto his own solo career having provided production for stable mate Londn Blue’s EP “False Hope” last year.

Having given his thoughts on the local Southern music scene and the reaction to his new EP, they then discuss his new track “Window Seat” which was simultaneously premiered by the online magazine.
