050-StraightFresh

New Jersey hip hop trio 050 Boyz release their new album “Everything 050” on 4th August.

Produced by long time associate Clinton Place, it also features many of the best Garden State Emcees pitching the street side by side with established names such as Treach from Naughty by Nature and DoItAll from Lords of the Underground.

Prince AK, Riq da Kid and Tru Trilla have earned the medals in the local scene throughout the years whether as members of groups or with their solo careers, and were involved with the Garden State Greats movement devised by Treach and Fam of Rottin Razkals back in the day. With initial assistance from DoItAll, the group regenerated the concept of unifying and representing Jersey hip hop while forming in the past couple of years, and the nature of the album is testament to this aim

They sat down recently with US online Straight Fresh to chop it all up. They discussed their years in the game and working with some of the best known names to come from the area, their thoughts on hip hop, influences, Jersey hip hop, their aims with the new album and much more
