Its not uncommon for someone to suggest I check out mc so-and-so or dj whats his name. So about a year and a half ago I got word to check out a video (“The Peoples Champ”) by a rapper that goes by “Awkword”. Revolt Radio put it best, “AWKWORD’s ethic and motive is simple. He raps for the everyman and everywoman.” After a trail of emails and stale mates I got it done! RenegadeTheMagazine.com finally caught up with east coast rapper Awkword for an interview.
RENEGADE: You have collaborations with numerous hip hop legends. How is it knowing you have that kind of support behind you?
AWKWORD: For a concept and an album like this, you need that support. That’s what this is all about. Fuck a co-sign. If this were a solo project, none a that would matter to me. But this is more than a solo project. When the album drops, it will be a monumental moment in our culture’s already incredibly glorious history — connecting us, across every continent, through Hip Hop music and the power of words.
