AWKWORD and HipHopLT Talk World View, Working with Slug, etc
HipHopLT.com recently caught up with AWKWORD to talk about the artist’s recent release, World View. They discuss how the project was first conceptualized; the difficulties of the album-making process; the responses from artists approached to contribute; the toughest collaborations; working with Harry Fraud and Slug; the connection to sponsor Morgan Stanley; how the album’s success will be measured; and more.
The NY emcee describes the making of a charity hip hop album with over 100 artists involved.
It’s easier said than done to release the first charity hip hop album. Awkword knows that. He has been working on “World View” for more than five years, collaborating with emcees and producers from six continents and countries such as Romania, Malawi and Serbia.
But the album was successfully released last month, and now Awkword is dropping the bonus disc, a 19-track compilation that features guest appearances from Pace Won, Poison Pen, Vast Aire and others.
