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.

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…
