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

RighteousFury-DeadEndHipHop

With only a couple of days to go until the release of the sophomore album by Kansas base MC Matt Maddox, renowned Stateside online magazine Dead End Hip Hop are the latest to run the rule over “Righteous Fury”

Their contributor Samuel Odunsi Jr pays tribute to the essence of the album which is “hearkening back to the earlier days of hip hop that boasted raw lyricism over everything else” and concludes If you miss that raw, old-school hip hop sound I strongly recommend you give this 19-track project a listen. It’ll leave you more than satisfied You can read the entire article HERE

Artists such as Matt Maddox have retained a global market over the years as while many of us remember the sound of decades gone by, new generations not as readily exposed to it on the network channels have discovered the classics in clubs and the internet. For them, it’s “new”, and has qualities not as prevalent elsewhere. Hip Hop and rap music has developed and diversified over the years as happens with every genre. Those who draw from the elements of the Golden Era are not themselves stuck in the 90’s. They have developed that style to the contemporary version they produce today. Everything comes from somewhere, there are differences, one thing is not another, but neither is one thing necessarily “better”than another – the public pays its money & takes its choice.

It’s thanks to artists such as Matt Maddox and many more the world over that a younger generation realize they have a choice
