NYC Rapper, Activist and Sociologist AWKWORD has come together with DJBooth and The Morgan Stanley Foundation to bring listeners his long-awaited studio album, World View.
Five years in the making, the 16-track LP has been described by the artist as “the first-ever 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project.” All proceeds are being donated to Guns 4 Cameras, a 501c3 nonprofit working to stop gun violence. Nine countries -- and five continents -- are represented on the album, already being called "a home run" and "an instant classic".
