Earlier this week, Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble sat down with Prox Centauri, the editor of Michigan’s online “Inside the Rift”, ahead of the release of their new album “Black Beach” on May 26th.

The discussion centres on the conceptualization of the project, the initial approach and recording process given the various sessions took place in Detroit, Kansas and Ohio.

They also touch upon the politically charged subject matter evident in the lyrics throughout which address a range of social issues including racism, social engineering and empowerment, before moving on to outline their working relationship and previous project “Muscle Shoals” designed as a tribute to Luther Ingram.

In closing, as Frost originates from New York State, Zo explains how the album represents Detroit, NY and the States generally as the subjects he addresses are more universal in nature.

London’s DJ Elma has a “Kick This” series on Youtube where she’s interviewed artists such as The Pharcyde, Slum Village, Genesis Elijah, Dublin’s Workin Class Records and many more

In late August, she met up with west London hip hop artist Apex Zero in Brixton to speak on his music, new album Reality Provoking Liberation and his various political views which form much of the subject matter for the album

As a student of African history, African-American figures such as Malcolm X & Huey Newton and politics, not surprisingly in this interview he outlines his views on corruption, social cohesion, oppression, justice, war, peace, the political systems at home and overseas and much more. It was his introduction to legendary hip hop artists such as Immortal Technique, Nas, Dead Prez, Tupac & Wu Tang which motivated the young man to study more, and it has come full circle as he now portrays his views as an Emcee.

Whether you agree or disagree with his points of view, he articulates his thoughts well whether in the form of his rhymes or in the setting of an interview, something which has been commented upon by various members of the media to date

Check the full interview on Youtube

The album releases on 28th October. There have already been several video & single releases from it, including Chaotic Revolt and A Meeting of the Continents featuring Hasan Salaam & Iron Braydz

CHAOTIC REVOLT

A MEETING OF THE CONTINENTS

Look out for much more news & coverage of this release over the coming months, including plans for a launch night in London in November
