NYC Rapper, Activist and Sociologist AWKWORD has come together with DJBooth and The Morgan Stanley Foundation to bring listeners his long-awaited studio album, World View.
Five years in the making, the 19-track LP has been described by the artist as “the first-ever 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project.” All proceeds are being donated to Guns 4 Cameras, a 501c3 nonprofit working to stop gun violence. Eight countries — and five continents — are represented on the album, already being called “a home run“.
World View features Joell Ortiz, KRS-One, Sean Price, Slug, Chino XL, ILL BILL, REKS, Jasiri X, and more. The producers on the project are Harry Fraud, Domingo, Steel Tipped Dove, Numonics, ATG, Amin PaYnE, Dominant1, Dismas, and more.
You can stream the project below and cop it on DJBooth. Hip hop gives back.
