Brick City rapper and producer Az Izz of the legendary Outsidaz crew is on the comeback trail with his new album “Dopeliss” releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.

Following on from last month’s “Gettin’ It”, new single “Nunya” has been released today.  Produced by another Newark native Qua Z Mo, it’s a fuel injected electro banger powered by heavy 808 kicks with Az on the front foot from the outset.  Packing the verbal artillery, targets are placed in the sights and gauntlets thrown down through a series of combative rhymes and punchline bars “Ya whole career is a publicity stunt, how you black, ain’t kick a rap about your history once“.  Stoking the fires, pure heat for the streets.

Available to stream and download at APPLE, TIDAL & AMAZON Also streaming on Spotify and Soundcloud

Just before the turn of the year, the UK’s online tv channel OnTrax visited New York and New Jersey to conduct a series of filmed interviews.

They sat down for 5 minutes with Brick City rapper Tru Trilla in the studios owned by local legends Lords of the Underground, and chopped it up about his earliest influences which naturally included the Lords, Naughty by Nature, Lakim Shabazz and Queen Latifah, and his journey starting out in hip hop.

He reveals his own original move from poetry to writing lyrics, and the passion felt in the creative process transferred to the listener, describing music as “art in motion and medicine to the soul” citing the track “I Remember” from his recently released EP “The Seymour Chronicles” as an example of the importance of writing from the heart.

Just published, watch the full interview on Youtube.

Released through New Dawn Records on March 17th, you can stream “The Seymour Chronicles EP” in full on Spotify

Tru will also be releasing his banging new album “God of Barz” through New Dawn Records on May 29th which includes production by Clinton Place (NJ/LA), DNA Beatz (Chicago), Sumerio Square (Barcelona) and the UK’s Chat One. The first single “Word of God” released on March 30th, again available to stream on Spotify

Relaunched last year after a 15 year hiatus, hip hop label New Dawn Records have confirmed today that they will be releasing a new EP and album by New Jersey’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla over the next few months.

In an official statement published this morning, the label commented

“We relish the prospect of working with an artist of Tru’s caliber and style which represents perfectly our direction of travel as we enter an exciting new phase since re-launching last year.

We at UrbanElite PR have of course worked with Tru Trilla previously in 2015, then as a member of the 050 Boyz group as they released the classic album “Everything 050”

The worldwide media coverage and radio airplay reflected the appreciation and quality of the rhymes skills, lyricism and dope production, and ultimately led to both DJ Eclipse & DJ Premier inviting them as guests on their Sirius XM shows.

Tru’s new releases feature his 050 Boyz sparring partners Prince Ak and RIQ, and also include many of his long term Brick City affiliates on vocal and production duties, beginning with the new EP “The Seymour Chronicles” which releases on March 17th, the precursor to “God of Barz” which drops May 29th

Produced entirely by another New Jersey native Joey Loax, the EP represents the classic east coast sound while Tru, Prince Ak, RIQ and Fly Kwa all deliver their trademark fierce rhymes, hooks, hard bars and lyricism. An already heavyweight under card before the main event later in the year, the label have just launched a video trailer for the EP on Youtube

Taken from the EP, the singles “Warzone” and “20 to Life” will be released during February

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.

IMG_5945sml

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.
