New feature on New Jersey’s 050 Boyz in the UK’s I Am Hip Hop Magazine

050-IAmHipHopMagazine

The debut album by Newark hiphop group 050 Boyz releases this coming Tuesday, 4th August 2015.

Riq da Kid, Prince AK and Tru Trilla have put together a banger from start to finish, assisted greatly by the production by their long time associate Clinton Place.

“Everything 050”, just as with the group named after the area code for New Jersey, is one for the heads. Neck breakin beats, raucous delivery & energy, on point lyricism, it’s like the good ‘ol days while being aware it’s 2015. There’s also features from Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Famiil, Tha Advocate, IB the Druid, B Wells and many more, including a lil UK flavour from WiseRap.

Speaking of the UK, the trio chopped it up with London’s I Am Hip Hop Magazine recently to discuss how the group formed and their links with Treach and the Garden State Greats movement, the artists who inspired them and their traditional and ongoing focus on representing New Jersey. Having come up through the Golden Era, they also highlight the new wave of artists they rate, they discuss the process on choosing producers, and Clinton Place himself speaks about his involvement with the album.

The feature also touches upon their move into the world of acting. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

Look out for extensive media coverage on 050 Boyz in the next few weeks, more audio and video releases, and appearances as guests on radio shows including with DJ Eclipse on the Halftime Show on WNYU Wednesday 12th August and again on his Rap Is Outta Control Show on Sirius XM 30th August

They performed at the Lincoln Park Festival in Newark last weekend with their dj, DJ Nugget. Some may recognize him from this story which broke on ABC News’ “The Investigators” programme last year where he was falsely charged with a number of offences, the dashcam evidence ultimately leading to the police officers being indicted
