Nine countries and four continents connect nine artist on one song

“I Am” is the latest international collaborative effort from global Hip Hop ambassador, rap artist and #HipHopEd representative AWKWORD, creator of the 2014 album ‘World View‘ that featured — for the first time in Hip Hop history — contributions from every continent on earth. As part of his ongoing effort to connect us worldwide through Hip Hop music and culture, as well as showcase the Motherland, the Diaspora and women in Hip Hop, AWKWORD connected with Nigerian-born Canadian producer Teck-Zilla, Nigerian songstress Maka and French DJ J Hart to recruit an All-Star cast of emcees to join him on the “I Am” Global Posse Cut, including Latasha Alcindor (USA), Holstar (Zambia), Wakazi (Tanzania), Five Steez (Jamaica), Modenine (Nigeria), The Assembly (South Africa), and Third Eye (Malawi). Aptly entitled “I Am”, the song features 9 emcees sharing truths about their lives in their respective home countries across Africa, the Caribbean and the United States. The song will appear on AWKWORD’s 2016 EP ‘Mid-Flight’. All proceeds from the sale of the song will go toward financing the creation of the video, so all the artists can truly show who they are and where they’re from.

Zambian Rapper Holster had this to say “Proud to be a part of this Collaborative effort by Awkword Produced by Teck-Zilla…the song called I Am features on Websites such as The Source and Hip Hop Dx…what we grew up on! I feature alongside Legends such as Modenine, Five Steez, Third Eye, Latasha Alcindor, Wakazi, The Assembly, Maka and DJ Hart”
