Awar gives two tracks from his album, Spoils Of War, the cinematic treatment with a combined visual single. I listened to the album yesterday and it’s all the way dope. But these two tracks are among my favorite. I just really feel the lyricism and the vibe these joints provide. Dope and relatable. These tracks are produced by Vanderslice and Jake One respectively.
AWAR is back to rocking mics and staying busy, this time hopping on a Vanderslice instrumental that was originally featured on the latters’ instrumental project, Oh My God EP. AWAR add some venom on the vocals and takes the listener to church over this gospel-esque production.
Be on the lookout for AWAR and Vanderslice’s new album, The Winning Team, slated to drop later this year.
AWAR has been on my radar for more than just a couple of years. Many people got to hear music from him for the first time, but AWAR has been making music for much longer than that. I am glad he is getting the recognition he deserves though and this cut, Elephant Gun, is only add fuel to that fire. Jake One on the production, so you know it knocks. New album, The Laws Of Nature, drops next week.
This is the second song off of Awar’s recently released, DJ Booth sponsored, Things Of That Nature EP. I realize that Awar is not a household name to most, but don’t mistake him for a rookie. Awar has been paying his dues for some years. I haven’t heard the entire EP yet but what I have heard has been of the highlest caliber. He has great storytelling ability and his words come from deep inside. Artistry in the truest form. The production on this joint comes from Frank Dukes.
I am not sure what project this will be on. I will try to find out. It has been a long time since I have heard some new Awar music and I am anxious to hear a new album. This cut doesn’t help me with anticipation. This track and video fall in the beyond real category. The story to this track is definitely something for folks to feel. The track is produced by the venerable M-Phazes. Stay tuned for more music from Awar.
