Tone Chop and Frost Gamble – Veteran EP 25 Facts

• October 29, 2016
Tone Chop and Frost Game - Veteran EP 25 Facts

Tone Chop and Frost Game – Veteran EP 25 Facts

Here is the latest in our ongoing exclusive series “25 facts”. We have 25 facts from Tone Chop and Frost Gamble for their Veteran EP.

1. The concept for the “Veteran” EP was based around growing into adulthood, fatherhood, etc. – while experiencing the changes in Hip Hop music over the last 20 years.

2. Honesty is also a main theme in Veteran! We don’t glamorize negativity or materialism.

3. The name “Tone Chop” actually comes from an old Kung Fu classic called “Assassins”. One of the characters was named “Tong Chop” and he was very skilled in martial arts – just as Tone is very skilled at emceeing.

4. The “Gamble” in Frost’s name comes from being a pro poker player for 3 years. He used to travel the tournament circuit and make beats on a laptop in hotel rooms every night.

5. Chop writes his rhymes in pieces and puts them together like a puzzle – there might be one rhyme written across five different pages!

6. Sadly, Chop’s mother and father each passed away at a young age, from cancer – just 3 months apart.

7. When Chop met Frost, he was a rapper and had just started making beats. All he had was a drum machine and a four track.

8. Frost learned how to make beats and use the MPC by watching his neighbor DJ Spinna and others create beats for us to rhyme on.

9. Chop’s favorite rapper of all time is Lord Finesse – because of his crazy punchline style.

10. 5 rappers that Chop feels are very under-rated: Ransom, Fred Da Godson, Conway, Joell Ortiz and Joe Budden.

11. Tone Chop and Frost Gamble are both big fans of battle rap, from URL to KOTD. Frost often acts as a judge at local battle events.

12. We don’t really mess with keyboard beats. To us, sampling = Hip Hop

13. The bassline in “Step Up” was sampled from a 1996 cassette recording of a Tone Chop freestyle performance at Frost’s birthday party.

14. Tone Chop and Frost Gamble both enjoy fatherhood, and often use it as a theme in their music. Chop is a father to two boys – Anthony (age 8) and Vincent (age 5).

15. Frost has a 7 year old son, Thaddeus – named after one of his heroes, the 1800’s era abolitionist and US congressman Thaddeus Stevens.

16. Frost’s favorite producers of all time include Marley Marl, Just Blaze, the Beatnuts, Diamond D, Da Beatminerz and Preemo.

17. Chop’s very first Hip Hop tape was “Criminal Minded” by Boogie Down Productions. His all-time favorite is “Funky Technician” by Lord Finesse and DJ Mike Smooth.

18. Frost learned how to loop drumbreaks with pause tapes and tape splices – manually creating tape loops that could run on a reel-to-reel.

19. Chop is a big fan of graffiti art; he takes pictures anytime he sees something fresh!

20. Chop is also in a group called “Binghamton’s Most Wanted” which consists of Big Drew, Kizzle, Awful P, Weegee, T-Y, Trek, Flow and DJ Waxamillion. Both Awful P and DJ Waxamillion appear on the new EP.

21. Frost frequently collaborates with ZotheJerk (Detroit), White Rhino (Canada) & producer S.One who also appears on the EP.

22. Chop’s top favorite producers besides Frost are The Alchemist, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Stu Bangas, Jake One and Marley Marl. He has used some of their beats for freestyles on previous mixtapes in the Chopper City series.

23. Frost moved from NY to Minneapolis, then onto Kentucky, Kansas City, Vegas, LA and Arizona before settling in Canada.

24. “Veteran” was completed by emailing audio files back and forth – we were never in the studio together even once.

25. Tone Chop and Frost Gamble can appreciate any style of Hip Hop – so long as the mic controller has skills. But our favorite will always be gritty NY style street rap.
