I would like to share the new track from Awkword titled “When the Soldiers Fall”. Despite me posting this a few days after Veteran’s Day (the inspiration to this track), Awkword is regularly featured on Hip-Hop Kings and is becoming a fan favourite with his continual release of quality music. Awkword shares the new single “When the Soldiers Fall” by uploading to his official audiomack website. Awkword explains the track was recorded 10 years ago, and of course Veteran’s Day was the perfect time to release it.
