French DJ J Hart has built close ties with NYC and the UK over the years, and broadcasts his Big Bang Show on Break London Radio every Friday at 3pm EST / 8pm GMT (www.breaklondon.org)
His guests on his show broadcast on 4th September 2015 were New Jersey MCs Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla & Prince AK – collectively known as 050 Boyz
The show opened with some quality turntablism by J Hart, as he cut and blended the group’s tracks DNA (ft Ib the Druid, Fam & Treach), Hot Damn, current single Concrete Combat (ft Dunn D, Big Stomp, Double O & Fly Kwa) and Pay Them No Mind (ft Do It All & Tha Advocate)
The interview started by the group explaining the concept behind the album “Everything 050” (available HERE) and the group’s name, and the importance of representing their home territory of Brick City Newark, Illtown, East Orange & Essex County.
The album features many established and upcoming artists from the wider Garden State scene, and is produced entirely by another local, Clinton Place
They then moved on to discuss performing at festivals in Brooklyn & Newark, signing a new management deal and the effect that has for independent artists such as themselves, before the interview turned to the highly publicised situation regarding their live dj, DJ Nugget (aka Marcus Jeter).
He was the subject of a huge ABC News Investigators story which resulted in two police officers being indicted for falsifying evidence and one for assault.
While for legal reasons the group could only provide a limited comment about the incident, the interview did move to the more general ongoing issues of police brutality and killings of those within the balck community which gave rse to the emergence of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
The interview then concluded with the trio outlining their future plans for videos and tours of the USA and Europe, and then answered the show’s regular final question “What Is Your definition of Hip Hop?”
