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.
