“AWKWORD is as much an activist as an artist, channeling the idea of conveying a message and a viewpoint through rhyme and attempting to cause a change in the world around him.” — The Village Voice, Sound of the City (May 2012)
“Though his mission is serious, Awkword’s got a quicksilver wit that permeates most of his tracks… Stay on his good side; it’s a pretty inspiring place to be.” — MTV’s OurStage Magazine (August 2012)
