Originally broadcast live on July 15th, Brick City rapper Tru Trilla sat down with host Sim of Washington DC’s popular Youtube Channel “The Front Stoop”.

In line with the channel’s focus on addressing broader current issues affecting society and hip hop directly, the pair first discussed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic both in a personal and professional context, and the veracity of information being provided to the public at large.

While playing tracks from the album, the subject of conscious lyricism and the role it plays within the wider forms of contemporary hip hop was considered and compared before the interview moved onto Tru’s history in the New Jersey scene.

He explains the origins of his group 050 Boyz of which he is a member with Prince Ak and Riq, the source of its name, and how this led to building with Shade 45’s DJ Eclipse and DJ Premier before touching upon his early affiliations with Naughty by Nature and Lords of the Underground.

Of course at the heart of the interview is his new album “God of Barz” where he breaks down the concepts, subject matters and construction, and speaks on his history and future working with the album’s producers from the States, UK and Europe.

Watch the interview in full on Youtube

With production by Chicago’s DNA Beatz, the UK’s Chat One, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square and Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve NJ/LA), the album also features Prince Ak, Confucious, Fly Kwa and Middy Murdock.

Available to stream and download on every major digital platform and store including APPLE, TIDAL and Spotify.

New video out today by Brick City’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla, “Real Rap” featuring fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak is taken from his album “God of Barz” released through New Dawn Records on May 29th.

Filmed in downtown Newark just before the turn of the year, the pair trade verses over a hard edged gritty beat produced by Barcelona’s Sumerio Square.  Set on a verbal warpath, the seasoned veterans deliver punchline salvos of hard bars against weak representations and pale imitations in equal measure, dismantling defences with the ease of prize fighters earning stripes for their home State.  Some spicy heat for the street, 050 Dat !

The album available from all streaming platforms and digital stores includes further production by Chicago’s DNA Beatz, the UK’s Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve NJ/LA) with New Jersey natives Fly Kwa, Confucious and Middy Murdock appearing as the additional guest featured artists.

050-ReupSpot

With less than a week until the release of their debut album “Everything 050” on 4th August, and having just stepped off stage at the Lincoln Park Music Festival at the weekend where they absolutely tore it down, Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK – aka 050 Boyz – took time out to chop it up with US online REUP Spot.

They spoke about their performance at the festival, their years in the game and the camaraderie which exists among them. They then to move on to discuss the recording process of the new album and how they feel their sound and approach is in sync with and represents New Jersey, as they further explain the involvement of so many other local featured artists from the Garden State on the album.

050-LincolnParkFestival

Taking their name from the local area code, and given their previous involvement with Treach’s Garden State Greats of 2004, current involvement in local youth programmes and determination to shine a light on others from the scene, their committment to their home State is clear. As it is to progressing the sound of hip hop they grew up with and began performing when it was at its prime.

The album is straight bangers from start to finish, thanks in no small part to the production of Clinton Place, the group’s own raucous lyrcism and the quality of contributions from the likes of Treach, Lakim Shabazz, B Wells, Famiil, IB the Druid, DoItAll and Tha Advocate
