Recently, NY state rapper Tone Chop and Frost Gamble jumped on the three-way with Chicago based journalist Sherron Shabazz, editor of online publication “The Real Hip-Hop”.
The interview has just been published in full today, in essence a transcript of their discussion which comes over with the vibe of three regular fellas choppin it up.
The speak about the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” which was released on September 29th, in particular the writing process which reflects a long standing close bond between the pair, and Chop divulges the very personal nature of tracks such as “Inspiration” and “See You Again”.
The album follows the release of their “Veteran” EP, very solid in its own right, but many have acknowledged the step up in level again of lyrical content and production this time around, and the duo discuss their drive for progression while explaining how they linked with featured artists Kool G Rap and Tragedy Khadafi.
With all three on the line sharing similar experience and knowledge of hip hop through the years, the conversation turns to Jay-Z’s latest album, Tupac’s body of work and contemporary mainstream rap compared with the independent scene past and present.
Finally they describe how their signing with Miami label 22 Entertainment has been both the result of persistence and longevity within the industry, and the catalyst for their significant emergence the past year.
