050-GuestlistInterview

A couple of weeks ago in the lead up to the release of their debut album “Everything 050”, New Jersey hip hop group 050 Boyz jumped on the phone with London’s multi-genre publication Guestlist Network.

The publication is produced online and as a monthly newspaper covering music news, events, clubs, tours and fashion from a national and international perspective

The trio of Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK formed as a group in 2011, but have been involved in the Garden State’s hip hop scene since the Golden Era of the 1990’s discussed their early days and life in Newark before addressing their aims for the group and also for their individual endeavours.

The interview moves on to the influence daily life in New Jersey has in their music and the subject matter they address, specifically within the new album, and how they differentiate traditional hip hop culture in comparison to that represented in the more mainstream commercial sector.

The interview concludes by the group explaining the approach to the production on the album, handled entirely by long time associate Clinton Place – aka DJ Jamal #9. One of the most in-depth interviews given by the group in recent times which you can read in full HERE

Earlier this week, the album which also features Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Ib the Druid, Tha Advocate, Fam (Rottin Razkals) and many more was released and is available from iTUNES

HERE IS THE ALBUM STREAM

They also released the video of their bonus cut “Pay The Bail” the day before release

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.

050-LincolnParkFestival

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

Taken from the album, check out “DNA” ft Treach, Ib the Druid & Famiil, and “Pay Them No Mind” ft DoItAll & Tha Advocate

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
