Rapper, activitst and sociologist AWKWORD premiered his critically acclaimed and internationally recognized ‘Throw Away The Key’ video today (August 6) via RapGenius. The hard-hitting lyrics expose police violence, mass incarceration and other related topics of injustice and inequality in America.
“Chicago is a wasteland, even colder in the summer
No education, programs, now they murdering each other
Born into prisons, most ghetto buildings got bars
When you live without shit, go head and worship them cars”
The visuals were sponsored by the New York City Civil Union and Occupy The Hood. Check out the video above. – Alley Olivier
