050-AboveAverageHipHop

Brick City’s 050 Boyz released their album “Everything 050” on 4th August

Produced entirely by Clinton Place, it also features many Emcees from the New Jersey hip hop scene including DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), Treach (Naughty by Nature), Lakim Shabazz, B Wells, Ib the Druid, Famiil (Rottin Razkals), Tha Advocate and Double O, with a little UK flavour provided by WiseRap.

The energy is intense from the moment the racous opener “Hot Damn” cranks up the adrenalin levels, all the way through the 20 tracks laced with bangin beats and powerful verbal deliveries. It’s hip hop in the classic vein but brought up to date for a modern age.

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.

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.

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.

050 - 09sml

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

New Jersey hiphop group 050 Boyz released their debut album “Everything 050” yesterday. It is available to buy now on iTunes HERE

The three Emcees Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK all have links with Brick City Newark, Illtown, East Orange, and take their name from NJ’s area code. Individually they were also involved with the Garden State Greats movement around 10 years ago, a concept devised by Treach of Naughty by Nature and Fam of Rottin Razkals to unite the local hip hop scene.

050Boyz1

Involvement with GSG played a part in the formation of the group in 2011, and certainly the focus in representing the area remains true. The album itself is heavily represented by featured local artists including Treach, DoItAll, Lakim Shabazz, Fam, Tha Advocate, B Wells, Ib the Druid and many more. It is entirely produced by Clinton Place, a long time associate of Prince AK from their days of performing together with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit artist Supreme C.

Their album has just been reviewed by US journalist Patrick Griffin for his site Patrick’s Music Blog. READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE

TimingIsEverything-HipHopDurso

Last week, Detroit’s Kid Vishis jumped on the phone with New Jersey online Hip Hop Durso’s charismatic young writer Roberta Lampley shortly after the release of his debut album “Timing is Everything”.

In what was an enthusiastic & fun exchange of views, the pair spoke about his writing process….and the key role Fiji Water, Monster Energy Drink & chicken plays in the pre-studio process!….the construction of the album and reasons for working with a core group of producers this time around, the thinking behind the album’s title and how it represents where he feels he is as an MC now.

They also discussed how the influence of not only Royce da 5’9″ but all 3 of his brothers played when he started our rapping and how that came about, his views on the depiction of hip hop today and why he feels “Hip Hop lost its respect, its pride, its honor. It’s become a fashion circus.“, the producers and artists he’d like to work with and gives an insight into his plans for future releases.

The feature in writing comes across exactly as it was on the phone, and well worth a read HERE

The album is available now internationally on iTunes and Amazon while CD formats are available directly from Seven 13 Entertainment at www.seven13ent.com

Produced by Mr Porter, Chase Moore, Nemisis and Nick Zervos, and also featuring Royce da 5’9″ on the final track “Coward”, check out the album’s official audio stream and keep up to date with Kid Vishis on twitter @KidVishis

Look out for more international media coverage coming over the next few days, including a special video feature on France’s Hip Hop 4 Life.
