Official video of the new single “Step Up” by NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble, filmed and directed by Big Drew Grafix.

It’s the second to be taken from the ex rap battle rivals’ EP “Veteran” out on November 18th through Seven 13 Music & Ent, and follows their tribute to Sean Price “Leave It Alone” which featured Ruste Juxx and Nobi.

With a little help from The A Team’s Mr T in the hook, Frost’s atmospheric production provides Chop with the backdrop to throw down challenges to all-comers through punchline filled verses.

Omerta-BritishHipHop

East coast duo, MC M.I. and DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – release their new album “Omerta” on June 28th through their label Six2Six Records.

The album has a theme in the tradtions of a Prince Paul, Little Brother or Kool Keith release in days gone past. The pair draw on their respective Italian and Russian heritage to adopt roles in a series of audio vignettes with familiar cultural reference points. The mafiosa inference is presented metaphorically to relay comparative situations.

This creative approach is consistent with M.I.’s additional focus in the world of movie making. Acting, film writing and film production has been a new venture since the release of “Swiss Banks” last year, a co:production with their European affiliates SWC Records.

MIlrg3

A new movie “Six2Six” which has a completely original storyline with no relation to the label itself co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Bust Bee, and will be screened by Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival at the National Black Theater in NYC during the first week of August.

Currently the rapper has been filming scenes for a comedy called “Can’t Live Without My Radio” due for release in 2017.

London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on the phone with them recently to discuss the new ventures, and the feature has just been published in British Hip Hop – read it HERE

We’re not at liberty to reproduce the entire review here, but it can be read on Page 47 if you pick up a copy from selected stores, or indeed order it worldwide via their official WEBSITE

We have also learned that among the other publications to confirm their intent to feature the release is the globally renowned MOJO Magazine. You will be able to read what they have to say at the time of the album’s release.

His new film “Six2Six” which co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee has been selected by the Hip Hop Film Festival, run by Ralph McDaniels and Julien Lockhart, to be screened in NYC in August.
