Rock The Dub presents: AWKWORD & Cletus are Remnants & Rejects.
Dropping The Week of October 8, 2012 via rockthedub.com. Stay tuned…
In anticipation of his forthcoming DJBooth-sponsored 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project World View, New York City-based rap artist AWKWORD links up with producer Cletus of Italy for an eight-minute non-stop mix of raw street music, with a Euro-electro spin… AWKWORD & Cletus are Remnants & Rejects… Aside from a brief singing cameo from Block McCloud, Remnants & Rejects showcases only the emcee-producer duo of AWKWORD and Cletus. And it may not be what you’ve come to expect from the self-proclaimed People’s Champ, AWKWORD. That’s why the project couldn’t be presented by a regular run-a-the-mill rap site, and the artists went right to Rock The Dub.

A week ago, Saturday, September 22, You Heard That New world premiered “I”, the newest single off AWKWORD's forthcoming DJBooth-sponsored 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project World View. Also known as the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM, “I” serves as the ideal introduction to the New York City-based rap artist known for his sarcasm and wit.
Since its release, “I” — which features DJ Dyllemma on the 1s and 2s and production from ATG — has been featured by numerous leading Hip Hop sites worldwide, including Hip Hop DX (Play, Rate & Comment!), Kevin Nottingham, Rock The Dub, The Mad Bloggers and Spain’s Versos Perfectos. The lyrics to “I” also made Rap Genius's BIG MEMES Weekly Roundup.
For select reviews, lyrics and free stream/download options, see below.
And for those of you who spin AWKWORD’s records on radio or use it in your classrooms and programs with youth, please note that this song is completely clean and TV/Radio/Classroom approved.

"I got a problem with pigs, if they cool, anomaly /
I got a problem with authority, tryna calm me /
I got tossed in jail, for smoking the peace plant /
I got a high five, choking kid under street lamp…”
AWKWORD comes through KN with another Certified fresH single done just right. “I (the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM” is yet another reason I ride with the NY emcee as he opens up and lays himself on the table for fans to dissect. It takes a lot of fucking balls for an artist to just put it all out like this and for that I salute AWKWORD. The emcee releases his inner self on the ill backdrop provided by ATG and featuring the scratching of none other than the always dope DJ Dyllemma. ”I (the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM” is just dope. Period.
Brand new track from Awkword, titled “I”. This Awkword un-anthem song is reflective and insightful, as he raps about his loves and hates–fake friends, women, drugs, politics, music industry, authority, alone time, cigarettes and caffeine, and more–all things that make him who he is or isn’t. Laid-back beat was produced by ATG, with cuts from DJ Dyllemma.

AWKWORD has a lot on his mind these days. He has been very busy pushing his music from the forthcoming album, World View. He has released single after single building the buzz for his 100% for charity project, letting us know, it’s not all about the Benjamins.
AWKWORD is a social advocate and a musician. With each release he puts out it becomes more and more apparent that his name deserves to be recognized for the talent he possesses. But more than that, Awkword is a son, a son who lost his mother earlier this year. He talks below about the special relationship he shared with his mother and his music. Enjoy…
