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
