Rapper and Activist AWKWORD is one of the “dope artists” putting New York City Hip Hop back on the map . He is also “the heart and soul” of World View, the first-ever 100% For-Charity Global Hip Hop Album. Hosted/presented by DJBooth.net and also sponsored by End of the Weak (EOW) and The Morgan Stanley Foundation, AWKWORD’s “highly anticipated LP World View” is executive produced by AWKWORD and The White Shadow of Norway and mixed by Switzerland’s Vinyl Digger. With the intention of connecting us worldwide through Hip Hop music & culture, AWKWORD’s World View features contributions from every continent, approximately 20 countries and every United States region.

The album boasts production from Harry Fraud, Domingo, Falside, etc., and guest emcee appearances from the likes of Joell Ortiz, Sean Price and KRS-One. All of the proceeds from World View are being donated to Guns 4 Cameras (Aim to Live), a 501c3-registered nonprofit dedicated to eradicating street violence through the Hip Hop-inspired education and empowerment of our at-risk youth. The organization’s founder, Hezues R’ was shot at twenty-two times at age 22 and survived to re-dedicate his life to saving the streets. He and the organization’s Spokesperson, Hip-hop icon Pharoahe Monch, have traveled the country speaking to the youth about Hip Hop, making the right choices, and putting down their guns and picking up their cameras (or their pens or their microphones) to be productive instead of destructive. Future plans for the organization include local gun-for-camera exchanges nationwide.
