AWKWORD ft. Chaundon - Gas Land (Frack Off)

Featuring:
Producer:
Numonics
Album:

Hydrofracturing, the practice of injecting water, sand and chemicals into the earth at high pressure in order to extract petroleum and natural gas, has the potential to contaminate ground water, damage air quality and exacerbate global warming, but corporate pressure has led the EPA to downplay its dangers. On new single Gas Land, a Booth-exclusive world premiere, AWKWORD sends a message to all who prize profits over public and environmental health: Frack Off! Over Numonics‘s ominous, brass-led beat, the NYC spitter makes a passionate argument against fracking, weaving copious amounts of factual knowledge into his flow. South Bronx mainstay Chaundon rails against corporate corruption in an equally incisive closing 16. Gas Land is the opening track off AWK’s World View LP, scheduled to hit The DJBooth this Sunday for streaming and purchase. All proceeds from its sale will go to Guns 4 Cameras, a 501c3 nonprofit working to eradicate gun violence.
