Originally broadcast live on July 15th, Brick City rapper Tru Trilla sat down with host Sim of Washington DC’s popular Youtube Channel “The Front Stoop”.
In line with the channel’s focus on addressing broader current issues affecting society and hip hop directly, the pair first discussed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic both in a personal and professional context, and the veracity of information being provided to the public at large.
While playing tracks from the album, the subject of conscious lyricism and the role it plays within the wider forms of contemporary hip hop was considered and compared before the interview moved onto Tru’s history in the New Jersey scene.
He explains the origins of his group 050 Boyz of which he is a member with Prince Ak and Riq, the source of its name, and how this led to building with Shade 45’s DJ Eclipse and DJ Premier before touching upon his early affiliations with Naughty by Nature and Lords of the Underground.
Of course at the heart of the interview is his new album “God of Barz” where he breaks down the concepts, subject matters and construction, and speaks on his history and future working with the album’s producers from the States, UK and Europe.

New video out today by Brick City’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla, “Real Rap” featuring fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak is taken from his album “God of Barz” released through New Dawn Records on May 29th.
Filmed in downtown Newark just before the turn of the year, the pair trade verses over a hard edged gritty beat produced by Barcelona’s Sumerio Square. Set on a verbal warpath, the seasoned veterans deliver punchline salvos of hard bars against weak representations and pale imitations in equal measure, dismantling defences with the ease of prize fighters earning stripes for their home State. Some spicy heat for the street, 050 Dat !

Just before the turn of the year, the UK’s online tv channel OnTrax visited New York and New Jersey to conduct a series of filmed interviews.

He reveals his own original move from poetry to writing lyrics, and the passion felt in the creative process transferred to the listener, describing music as “art in motion and medicine to the soul” citing the track “I Remember” from his recently released EP “The Seymour Chronicles” as an example of the importance of writing from the heart.
