Once rivals in upstate NY’s rap battle scene, Binghamton rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg-based producer Frost Gamble have released their new EP, ‘Veteran‘, today through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.
The pair became partners in rhyme and tagging during the 90’s before Frost’s relocation saw them pursue solo careers. Collaborations with Tom Gist, Jinx da Juvy, Sadat-X, J-Ro, and Rakim’s son Tahmell followed, while this year, Frost contributed to Seven 13’s ‘God Bless Dope Rappers‘ compilation featuring Royce da 5’9″, Horseshoe Gang, Kid Vishis, & Crooked I.
Armed with an MPC, Frost produces a classic soundscape of breaks, loops, and turntablism over which Chop narrates his journey through life and Hip Hop. Lyrically on point through a series of punchline bars and hard hitting rhymes, dues are paid to the pioneers and a previous era while still embracing the future. 7 tracks deep, ‘Veteran‘ represents the true essence of a modern age and lays down a marker for next year.
