The hard-hitting Awkword is back with ‘Go!’, a new track from his upcoming charity project World View from which 100% of proceeds will go to charity. Awkword is not one for keeping back his words, and releases his honesty via the mic. Joell Ortiz, Atmopshere‘s Slug and Maya Azucena join him on the track, while Domingo provides the beat. Check after the jump to purchase the song and do some good for charity – and find out more about the organisation he’s involved with too.

AWKWORD has released a new song today called “Go!” The song is a high-powered underground hip-hop collaboration with AWKWORD trading rhymes with Brooklyn’s Joell Ortiz and Slug from Atmosphere. AWKWORD starts the song off with him talking about overcoming obstacles, internal and external. Slug takes the second verse, and ushers in a spirit of optimism, while Joell closes the song off by talking about the success he is destined to have thanks to his undying work ethic. Meanwhile, the song’s hook comes courtesy of vocalist Maya Azucena.

“Go!,” produced by Domingo, is slated to be released on AWKWORD’s upcoming album, World View. Proceeds from the project will be going to the non-profit organization Guns 4 Cameras, which looks to “eradicate street violence through the Hip Hop-inspired education and empowerment of our at-risk youth.”
