Earlier this week, eastcoast rapper & producer duo Tone Chop & Frost Gamble jumped on Skype to speak with Rainbow Exotic Music for the latest edition of their podcast.

The pair discussed the earliest days together growing up in NY state which included a period as rap battle rivals, and their earliest influences, citing names such as Diamond D, Lord Finesse, Pete Rock, LL Cool J and The Beatnuts as helping shape their initial approach.

They then speak about the concept behind their new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” and Chop provides an insight into the working relationship with featured artists Kool G Rap and DNA. The subject then moves on to the comparisons between the classic style of hip hop with some of today’s contemporary mainstream offshoots, the differentials in marketplaces and focus on lyical content, as Chop declares his wish for “mumble rap” to be re-categorized seperately from the genre!

Chop is then asked to give his thoughts on Jay-Z’s new album “4:44”, and as a fan of Hova he gives an interesting view of his overall body of work since the release of “Reasonable Doubt”. Meanwhile, as the pair discuss the logistics of recording together, Frost explains his move from traditional to contemporary crate digging techniques using the MPC, S900 and Tempest as part of the production process.
