New Jersey’s 050 Boyz release their new album Everything 050 on the 4th of August, the follow up to their 2013 mixtape “050 Dat”
The trio of Price AK, Riq da Kid and Tru Trilla have been leading names in the local independent hip hop scene over the past couple of decades, whether originally as members of groups or due to their own solo projects. They were also key figures in the Garden State Greats movement of 2004, a concept devised by Treach (Naughty by Nature) and Fam (Rottin Razkals) to help unify and promote New Jersey’s underground and established artists.
The group itself formed in 2011 originally as 5 members with the spirit of the Garden State Greats in mind and assisted by DoItAll from the legendary Lords of the Underground.
The album was produced by Clinton Place, a long time associate of Prince AK going back to the days when they performed together with Flavor Unit’s Supreme C, AK being on hype man duties and Clinton as tour DJ
The tracklist also includes features by many other local Emcees, all serving up some quality rhymes and verses which once added to the overall mix, produces an album that represents Jersey to the max.

An album packed with energy, one for hip hop heads everywhere.
