AWKWORD ft. Chaundon - Melting Pot (Made In America)

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Numonics
Album:

Based on the way American thinkers have written about our cultural ”Melting Pot,” you’d think that being thrown in a cauldron of boiling water was a positive and enriching experience. As any lobster could tell you (if it could speak English), though, the reality is pretty f**king uncomfortable. Making its world premiere right here on our front page, the latest single off AWKWORD‘s forthcoming, for-charity street album finds beatsmith Numonics layering pensive keyboard and strings over a mid-tempo rhythm section as the NYC rhymesayer ponders the enduring effects of America’s painful racial past. First in Flight State emcee Chaundon guests, explaining why he refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance on verse two. Featuring this cut, the reader-approved Notorious and much more, World View is set to hit the DJBooth for digital purchase in the near future. Numonics fans can click here to cop Not for Nothing, the producer’s recent collaborative set with Saheed.
