AWKWORD is the mastermind of World View, the earth’s first 100% nonprofit global hip hop project, brought to you by The Morgan Stanley Foundation and the world-famous EOW (End of the Weak; EODub). The album is hosted by Pace Won (of the Outsidaz and The Fugees camp) and Block McCloud (of Brooklyn Academy and Army of the Pharoahs).

AWKWORD stands behind a decade-plus in the music business. His first release, “the Sub-Way mixtape,” featured such hip hop icons as Raekwon, Killah Priest and Remedy of Wu-Tang, ILL BILL & Necro, Tragedy Khadafi, GURU of Gang Starr, Scram Jones and others, and received rave reviews industry-wide. According to Elemental Magazine, AWKWORD showed the most heart on the album.

His solo debut, “See the Light” (named an Exit 97.7 Top Album of 2008), was the inspiration for World View, which is growing as a phenomenon on a daily basis. 100% of the proceeds from this album, out in 2009, will be donated to Guns 4 Cameras, a nonprofit dedicated to eradicating gun violence through the hip hop-inspired education/empowerment of our inner-city youth.

World View features production from 15 nations — and every continent except Antarctica. Guest MCs include: Pace Won, Block McCloud, Main Flow, Sha Stimuli, Josh Martinez, AWOL One, Beretta 9 of Killarmy, Akir, Ruste Juxx, Viro the Virus, and many others. The EOW-sponsored album-release party, scheduled for Summer 2009, will be held in the birthplace of hip hop, New York City.

World View is AWKWORDs, but it belongs to all his people. Indeed, AWKWORD is the People’s Champ. Don’t sleep.
