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

050-NewPic1a

Couple weeks back, The Beeshine made the short trip over from Jersey City to Newark to hook up with Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK, aka 050 Boyz.

As part of their “What Inspires…” series, the online tv channel spoke with the hip hop group about their early inspirations and what inspires them now, their own history, and their new album “Everything 050” which releases on 4th August

In this video, the group talk about early influences and inspirations with a particular acknowledgement of the role played by the success of local artists such as Naughty by Nature and Lords of the Underground (who they’d go on to work with), Redman, Queen Latifah and how they in turn now look to provide an example to others.

They discuss how watching live performances by Slick Rick & Doug E Fresh and hearing the music of MC Shan, Sugarhill Gang, Teddy Prendergast, Smokey Robinson, in their earlier years also acted as a major motivation

IMG_5945sml

The mindset of inspiring and promoting new generations from the Garden State and shining a light on other local independent artists can be traced back to their involvement in Treach’s Garden State Greats Movement of 2004, and represented now by the inclusion of many as featured guests on the album.

They also look back on their own progression through the years from producing mixtapes, releasing videos and grindin on the streets to now reaching out globally and developing their own entertainment company which again they hope will benefit those on the come up in future. The appreciation of family and community support is clear as is their intention to reciprocate.

The group explain the dynamic of working as three MC’s with distinct styles, and how the creative process and interaction with the crowd at shows is both a cathartic and powerful experience. Prince AK then speaks about his role as hype man for Treach’s Naughty Nation and touring with them in China, before the interview concludes by addressing the album itself

Probably one of the most insightful interviews 050 boyz have given to date

New Jersey’s 050 Boyz release their new album “Everything 050” on 4th August.

Despite this being their debut album as a group, the trio are no novices to the world of hip hop. Prince AK began as hype man for Flavor Unit’s Supreme C before an acting course with Tracey Moore (50 Cent, Busta Rhymes & Eve) saw him swap the mic for tv and film roles for a number of years.

Riq da Kid and Tru Trilla and their respective groups at the time joined Garden State Greats in 2004, a collaborative movement formed by Treach (Naughty by Nature) and Fam (Rottin Razkals) to help unify and promote artists in New Jersey. Now operating as solo artists, the original 5 members came together again in 2012 to rekindle the spirit of GSG and formed 050 Boyz.

With the support of DoItAll (Lords of the Underground), they released the mixtape “050 Dat” in 2013 before evolving into the current line up and recording the new album which has been produced entirely by long standing associate Clinton Place (Kurupt, Yukmouth, Gillahouse)

From the album is the new single “Pay Them No Mind” featuring DoItAll and NJ vet Tha Advocate

050boyz-

New Jersey trio, Prince AK, Tru Trilla and Riq tha Kid, aka 050 Boyz, travelled a long and diverse road to form as a group in 2011.

With individual histories spanning back a couple of decades, the story of 050 Boyz who take their name from the NJ district code is one of careers intertwining at various stages throughout the years. Most notably as part of the Garden State Greats movement inspired by Treach (Naughty by Nature) & Fam (Rottin Razcals) in 2004, a concept which was re-generated by Lords of the Underground front man DoItAll some years later.

Added to the mix are tv & film acting careers, ongoing solo careers and now a banging new hip hop album produced entirely by Clinton Place (Yukmouth, Kurupt, DoItAll and Gillahouse’s Runt Dawg)

The full story is explained in the press release HERE but they also took time out recently to speak with local online tv channel Smash Block TV accompanied by Treach & DoItAll to explain more about the back story

They have already released the first video from the album for the joint “Get Back”

Look out for many new audio & video releases in the months ahead.
