A week ago, Saturday, September 22, You Heard That New world premiered “I”, the newest single off AWKWORD‘s forthcoming DJBooth-sponsored 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project World View. Also known as the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM, “I” serves as the ideal introduction to the New York City-based rap artist known for his sarcasm and wit.

Since its release, “I” — which features DJ Dyllemma on the 1s and 2s and production from ATG — has been featured by numerous leading Hip Hop sites worldwide, including Hip Hop DX (Play, Rate & Comment!), Kevin Nottingham, Rock The Dub, The Mad Bloggers and Spain’s Versos Perfectos. The lyrics to “I” also made Rap Genius‘s BIG MEMES Weekly Roundup.

Lyrics

“I got a problem with pigs, if they cool, anomaly /
I got a problem with authority, tryna calm me /
I got tossed in jail, for smoking the peace plant /
I got a high five, choking kid under street lamp…”

Kevin Nottingham:

AWKWORD comes through KN with another Certified fresH single done just right. “I (the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM” is yet another reason I ride with the NY emcee as he opens up and lays himself on the table for fans to dissect. It takes a lot of fucking balls for an artist to just put it all out like this and for that I salute AWKWORD. The emcee releases his inner self on the ill backdrop provided by ATG and featuring the scratching of none other than the always dope DJ Dyllemma. ”I (the AWKWORD un-ANTHEM” is just dope. Period.

Crayon Beats:

Brand new track from Awkword, titled “I”. This Awkword un-anthem song is reflective and insightful, as he raps about his loves and hates–fake friends, women, drugs, politics, music industry, authority, alone time, cigarettes and caffeine, and more–all things that make him who he is or isn’t. Laid-back beat was produced by ATG, with cuts from DJ Dyllemma.

REUP Spot:

The emcee releases his inner self on the ill backdrop provided by ATG and featuring the scratching of none other than the always dope DJ Dyllemma.
