AWKWORD, Wordsmith, Jasiri X, Jus Daze & Capital X Are Notorious

NOTORIOUS-marquee-art

 

On the latest single off AWKWORD’s forthcoming DJBooth-sponsored 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project World View, up-and-coming Australian producer Amin PaYnE re-flips the original Duran Duran “Notorious” sample for a song inspired by the stabbings and shootings that took place across the country at the premieres for the Biggie biopic of the same name.

 The brand-new single – heralded by recent Rock & Roll HoF inductee Chuck D of Public Enemy — begins with a vitriolic a-capella intro from raptivist Capital X; follows with AWKWORD’s sneering response to those disturbing events at the premieres; delves deep into the politics of Hip Hop and violence with incredible guest appearances from WordsmithJasiri X and Jus Daze; then closes out with classic quotes from B.I.G., chopped up respectively and with precision from Amin PaYnE.
