For the DJs:
alot of people been posting this song on their blogs.Thank you very much for supporting.
Every rapper claims to keep it real, but most are so lost in fantasy they don’t even know their own reality anymore. Not AWKWORD. A New York City emcee who’s dedicated himself to the lost art of pre-Giuliani hip-hop, everything you need to know about the man’s music is contained in new single “Doctor, Doctor”. Making its world premiere on RefinedHype, in addition to a subtly addictive beat from MajoR R.E. and a guest verse from GuessWho?, “Doctor, Doctor” is the kind of rap that’s not afraid to truly let listeners inside.
“Doctor, Doctor” is off AWKWORD’s upcoming album “World View”, which has a dope background: all proceeds from the album, which includes features from Joell Ortiz, KRS-One and more, will go to Aim to Live, a 501c3-registered nonprofit dedicated to educating and empowering urban youth. Fucks yeah, it’s bigger than hip-hop.Here’s another cut from AWKWORD’s World View album; if you missed the Refined Hype premiere of this, for shame. Without creating alters, AWK breaks down his ills to the doctor on this one, with GuessWho? alongside for the ride. I do this a lot, but usually inside my own mind, or in text via twitter… or this blog. We all have problems and stress, it’s just in how you handle that shit. Real talk on this one, with beats from Malaysia. Malaysia! Hip-Hop is global, pricks!I have seen this name floating out there for some time. This is my first time really sitting down to listen to Awkword though. I like what I hear from this single off his yet to be released album, World View. Therapy music…Crazy fat swollen shouts to AWKWORD and Guess Who… for this ill joint. Recognize the realness or fall back!

This project has been a thing of comedy. It should’ve been out before 2012 even hit, but I was looking for either proper versions of tracks or promised jawns. Had to let this one go - the idea was too good. I broke the (skewed) science behind the title in the liner notes, and won’t go into it all here. Featured artists include Rhymageddon, Mr. Fickle, Rickie Jacobs, AWKWORD, BURNTmd, Touchphonics, Daniel Joseph, Dutch New York and more. A hair under 45 minutes or so. Fucked up part is, hulkshare wasn’t letting me upload a .zip (or a .rar!) to their site, so the punchline got merked. Sharebeast, thank you.
