050-StreetsConnect

West coast online magazine Streets Connect sat down with New Jersey hiphop group 050 Boyz recently in the wake of the release of their album “Everything 050” and their subsequent appearances on the Rap is Outta Control Show with DJ Eclipse and LFHQ Show with DJ Premier.

In what is a wide ranging interview, the trio of Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK discuss many aspects regarding their careers. They address their history with Treach from Naughty by Nature and DoItAll from Lords of the Underground, their involvement with the Garden State Greats movement and how this proactive representation of New Jersey remains a core principle today.

They then speak about the recording process of the album and how their sound, which has roots in the Golden era of the 90’s, is enjoying something of a revival and developing a new generation of fans.

Their thoughts on how the traditional hip hop culture is represented today are addressed before moving on to subjects such as their renowned live performances, the current scene in New Jersey and their future plans for their label 050 Entertainment.

His guests on his show broadcast on 4th September 2015 were New Jersey MCs Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla & Prince AK – collectively known as 050 Boyz

They then moved on to discuss performing at festivals in Brooklyn & Newark, signing a new management deal and the effect that has for independent artists such as themselves, before the interview turned to the highly publicised situation regarding their live dj, DJ Nugget (aka Marcus Jeter).

He was the subject of a huge ABC News Investigators story which resulted in two police officers being indicted for falsifying evidence and one for assault.

While for legal reasons the group could only provide a limited comment about the incident, the interview did move to the more general ongoing issues of police brutality and killings of those within the balck community which gave rse to the emergence of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

The interview then concluded with the trio outlining their future plans for videos and tours of the USA and Europe, and then answered the show’s regular final question “What Is Your definition of Hip Hop?”
