There is literally nothing better then finding a new artist who ticks all the boxes.
Chatting with east coast rapper AWKWORD, his character shined through, and it was evident that he has a lot more to offer than just a great portfolio of music.
He has a very intriguing image, as a result of his slightly gangster exterior which collapses when you start talking to him. This guy is smart, intelligent with a great story… plus he’s good looking! Line up ladies!!
Growing up, he was a straight-A-student running from cops, and getting suspended from school for fighting. Luckily, AWKWORD learned to filter his anger and his (awkwardness) as a result from his alienation and did it through spoken word and his music. AWKWORD’s ethic and motive is simple. He raps for the everyman and everywoman.
Check out the newest single off AWKWORD’s DJBooth.net-sponsored 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project World View, “Requiem”, a catchy frat party track with the worst of tragic undertones, featuring guest 16s from underground mainstay SoulStice and up-and-comers Ess Vee and CuzOH! Black, backed by a booming beat from Susan Sarandon’s #1 fan ATG. (Additional vocals provided by Mark Deez and Australia’s Jay Daniels.)
