Still sleeping on AWAR, after more than a dozen reader-acclaimed solo features from the NYC native? Then I advise you to get checked out by a neurologist, because you may be in a coma. New single Wake Up Call is unlikely to rouse someone from a persistent vegetative state, but listeners who are conscious will undoubtedly appreciate the hard-hitting bars AWAR unleashes over Vanderslice's sampled production, which comes complete with an adrenaline-pumping double-time hook. Fellow independent mic-murderer Freddie Gibbs showcases his masterful flows in a similarly aggressive guest 16. Fans will be able to find Wake Up Call, the previously-featured Cadillac Grills and much more on AWAR's The Winning Team LP, out now.
Update: We have added the Golly Gee Visuals-directed visuals for AWAR's Wake Up Call single.
