I'm pensive, but I'm relentless, with this
Rap, so Hezues, can give better weapons to kids
Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

What I’m doing — creating the first-ever 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project (dropping 2013 via DJBooth) — is a serious undertaking. All proceeds go to a charity that is responsible for acting on its mission to go beyond the gun exchange, working to educate and empower at-risk youth.

Further (and THIS — for all those asking — is why World View is taking “so long”), it is a great task to coordinate contributions from approximately 75 other emcees and dozens of producers from every continent, around 20 countries and every region of the US.

Sometimes, I get nervous. I’m not inhuman. But I push on, for Guns 4 Cameras, for Hezues, and the youth who we want to help avoid going through what Hezues had to. More info: http://AWKWORDrap.com

Steady search for clarity, not on that zen tip
Feel best when I'm high, and I hear the pen drip

There’s no such thing as true altruism. And I make my music for myself, too.

I'm not trying to rescue you, can hardly keep my sanity Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

I don’t hide the fact that I’m unstable. So, on a personal level, I can’t be responsible for saving you. I can continue to do what I do, but in the end it’s up to you.

Sometimes I wonder to myself, why would they disparage me
Why focus so much hate, on a rapper giving to charity
No waves in the cesspool, uniqueness, they're scared of me
Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

Sometimes I do go down that path, asking myself why the hate. But then I remember, all new things are distrusted. And anything that challenges the status quo is feared. I’m not sorry I’m not Mac Miller (no shots).

We still tryna come to terms, with slavery etcetera Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

Even though my family wouldn’t immigrate to America from Palestine and Europe for another 100 years… As a legally Caucasian American, I feel personally responsible for this atrocity… And no, we’re not Post-Racial, or this song wouldn’t have been written. In many ways (e.g., Privatized Prisons), Slavery continues today.

We don't pick our president, ask your state senator Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

Look up the Electoral College. And then, in case you forgot, weren’t born yet or were underground at the time, read up on the time George W. Bush was elected President by The Supreme Court, and not the People.

We didn't ask for this, but we did inherit her Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

The victims of persecution and oppression don’t ask to exist under these circumstances. This country, this society is inherited.

Likewise, we don’t ask as individuals to be born, but we inherit life and must decide for ourselves what we are going to do with it.

The 1 versus 99 Melting Pot (Made In America) by AWKWORD (Ft. Chaundon) 25

Before the revolution, before the downfall of every empire, there is a breaking point at which the polarization of rich and poor, haves and havenots, 1%ers and 99%ers has become too extreme to tolerate. We are getting closer. Just ask #Occupy.
