It’s a welcome return to the hip hop fold for rapper and producer Az Izz from the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, known for their early work with Wu Tang, The Fugees and D12 and who counted Pace Won and Rah Digga among their numbers. His new album “Dopeliss” is out July 3rd through New Dawn Records, and the first single taken from it released today.
The self produced “Gettin’ It” features East Orange luminary Drift, and over the funked up percussive beat the pair trade claims for what’s theirs while also bringing a little extra traditional rap beef to the table, in this case a historic tussle with Royce da 5’9″. The accompanying video was also released today, shot in the back yards of Brick City.

LEAVE IT ALONE (Tribute to Sean P) ft Ruste Juxx & Nobi
NY State rapper Tone Chop & producer Frost Gamble will be live in the Sirius XM Radio studio this Monday, October 16th, as guests of DJ Eclipse’s “Rap Is Outta Control Show”.
Once rap battle rivals growing up in Binghamton during hip hop’s Golden Era, the pair developed the kind of bonds that stay strong through the years. Immersed in the culture, the original graff artist and b-boy have seen their stars rise in the past year, first through their “Veteran” EP released in November 2016 and more recently with their album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” which includes guest featured artists Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, rap battler DNA, Canadian upcomer White Rhino and Tragedy Khadafi.
Since inking his deal with Miami label 22 Entertainment, Frost has emerged as one of the fastest emerging producers in the game. His new collaborative EP “Rare Fabric” with Tragedy Khadafi drops October 20th and his solo album ” I Missed My Bus” featuring luminaries such as Conway, Rah Digga, Crooked I, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx, Ras Kass, Guilty Simpson and many more will release in 2018. Meanwhile he has also been working on new music with Royce da 5’9″.

The duo have received global media coverage for the new album via interviews, features, radio airplay and reviews in the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Africa and Australia. The latest review published is by French online “Les Chroniques de Sagittarius”
NY state producer Frost Gamble, now a resident of Winnipeg Canada, has become one of the fastest emerging names in the game over the past year.
Having signed with Miami’s 22 Entertainment when his track “Honey” with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk was picked up for the label’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation early in 2016, the release of his “Veteran” EP with long time associate Tone Chop in November 2016 kick started a significant escalation in his career.
In May 2017, he released the album “Black Beach” with ZotheJerk which enjoyed international media coverage and included featuring in the renowned MOJO Magazine. In September he released the album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” with Tone Chop, again receiving worldwide critical acclaim and on October 20th releases another collaborative project, this time the “Rare Fabric” EP with Tragedy Khadafi.
Meantime, he has been working on remix and new music projects with Royce da 5’9″ and Horseshoe Gang, and in early 2018 will release his new solo album “I Missed My Bus” which includes stellar featured artists including Crooked I, Rah Digga, Conway, Planet Asia, Ruste Juxx, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Guilty Simpson and more.
So what’s behind the story here? Two US publications got in touch with the man to find out.
West coast magazine “Streets Connect” spoke with Frost recently
In the resultant in depth interview feature, they discuss last year’s “Veteran” EP, the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” and the history with Chop which goes back to their time in Binghamton during the 90’s, rap battle rivals who became partners in tagging and developed a brother-like relationship which has survived to this day.
Frost outlines his recording and production techniques, his connections with the featured artists including Kool G Rap, and previews what to expect from the EP with Tragedy Khadafi. He talks about the nature of the working relationship with 22 Entertainment and how this has helped him progress as an artist, and finishes by explaining how he handles the increase on workload and demands of his time while sharing his future aspirations.
While in NYC during August to complete the new EP with Tragedy Khadafi, Frost linked up with The Beeshine TV.
In the resultant video interview, Frost discusses his journey through hip hop, initially as a b-boy, then an MC and ultimately as a crate digging beatmaker, and reveals what his main aim is now in the context of what the culture has given to him through the years.
