050-AboveAverageHipHop

Brick City’s 050 Boyz released their album “Everything 050” on 4th August

Produced entirely by Clinton Place, it also features many Emcees from the New Jersey hip hop scene including DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, B Wells, Ib the Druid, Famiil (Rottin Razkals), Tha Advocate and Double O, with a little UK flavour provided by WiseRap.

The energy is intense from the moment the racous opener “Hot Damn” cranks up the adrenalin levels, all the way through the 20 tracks laced with bangin beats and powerful verbal deliveries. It’s hip hop in the classic vein but brought up to date for a modern age.

The latest endorsement of the release comes in this new review written by Riley Wallace for Above Average Hip Hop. READ IT HERE

050-BritishHipHop

A few weeks ago in the lead up to the release of their new album “Everything 050”, Newark hiphop group 050 Boyz jumped on the phone with long running UK online website British HipHop.

Their writer Ethan Everton spoke with them about how the group formed, and their own earliest memories of hip hop and the artists who inspired them the most to pic up the mic back in the Golden Era of the 90’s.

They moved on to discuss how the album was put together, from its initial concept through to the recording process, the subject matter addressed in their lyricism, and the representation of the New Jersey scene with so many local featured artists also appearing throughout the release.

The topic of discussion then diversifies into their thoughts on how the Garden State’s hip hop profile has grown over the past few years, and the reaction and support of a new generation of fans to a sound that is derived from a classic age.

The group speak on their intent to help inspire and promote new local emerging artists, in line with their long standing approach from the days of their involvement with Treach & Fam’s Garden State Greats movement of 2004, before further outlining their feelings on what needs to develop for the greater good of hip hop and rap music more generally.

A total of 19 tracks appear on the release, and the UK’s online magazine Blacksheep has just run the rule over it.

Offered a 4 star rating, their contributor Andrew Kay opens “Refreshingly, the title of his album refers to the official skill of rapping: being a poet….the thing that strikes you is the astonishingly diverse production and changes in mood and atmosphere that occur from track to track. Scattered might be how he’s sprinkled his lyrics over affected beats, but the strategy works.
