AWKWORD Talks Racism, Colin Kaepernick and ‘How to MAGA’
“I say Hip Hop Saved My Life, because as a youth it kept me out of trouble, and after my mom died, it kept me from killing myself.”
AWKWORD is a father, hip-hop activist, emcee and songwriter whose life goal is to draw attention to the things that matters using what he calls #Protestmusic. Over the years, the NY based MC has remained vocal when it comes to issues pertaining to racism and social injustice in America and the world in general.
The self-proclaimed global hip hop Ambassador back in 2014 made history when he released what is regarded as the first 100% global hip hop album, World View. All proceeds from the project were donated to “Guns 4 Cameras,” a 501c3 registered non-profit organization working to eradicate gun violence.
AWK whose fight against oppression is largely influenced by his late mother, last week released a new rap song titled Heather Heyer. The extremely “woke” record touched on everything that’s wrong with Amerikkka right now including Donald Trump. As things in the country continues to get out of hand, Creative-Hiphop reached out to the 36-year old to discuss racism, diversity, Colin Kaepernick and how to make America great again.
