ATM-StreetsConnect

In the lead up to the release of their album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th, Horseshoe Gang, sat down with west coast online magazine Streets Connect.

In one of their most in-depth interviews to date, the group spoke on a wide range of issues. They outlined the recording process and how they select the different styles of production, and the whole ethos behind the meaning of their album title. This leads them onto the wider subject of lyricism in hip hop, and the positive and negative influences these have depending on how imagery is portrayed per genre.

Their track “Shoe-icide Squad” has been much heralded as their version of NWA’s “Fuck the Police”, taking a stand against police brutality and protecting their community, and notably choosing to speak out on this when others have backed down. As explained in the feature this comes from the influence of listening to artists such as Rakim and moves the conversation forward to Tupac’s legacy, the long lasting effect it’s had on them, and the the west coast scene to this day.

The discussion moves on again to touch upon their well documented rap battle with Hopsin’s Funk Volume, their plans to release a comic book series and they also go into more detail about their fanbase overseas, notably in the UK and Europe. Currently sitting in iTunes Top 50 in 15 different countries would bear witness to that fact.

Very interesting insight into all of that & more which can be read in full HERE

The album “Anti-Trap Music” can be bought on iTunes with CD versions available from Amazon Check out the full album stream

Look out for the group releasing a new single next week with further media coverage to follow. Meanwhile connect with Horseshoe Gang on TWITTER and FACEBOOK

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.
