New AWKWORD Music and Interview with BLUNTIQ

AWKWORD has world premiered the latest single from Protest Music artist AWKWORD, “The Ivory Tower“, an audio attack on the American education system, produced by Dominant1 of Malawi, Africa. Along with the record, BLUNTIQ shares the exclusive new interview with AWKWORD in which EIC Craig T. Lee challenges the activist rapper to write 16 bars on college. These 16 bars morphed into “The Ivory Tower”.


I had the pleasure of speaking with AWKWORD about a number of things. It felt like a very deep conversation that towards the end, I realized it was an interview. It’s deeper than rap in all honesty. He’s committed to bringing much more to the culture than just rap alone. Check out our interview with AWKWORD below.
