AWOL One - Primer

(Alpha Pup)

One may call him a crude poet, a drunken rambler or a melodic voice for slackers but nobody can deny that he's maintained an uncompromising level of intelligence, honesty, melody, dark humor and originality. Touring the planet as a solo act and a member of The Shape Shifters, AWOL has collaborated with everyone from Xzibit and B Real of Cypress Hill to Aesop Rock, KRS-One, Buck 65, Atmosphere and members of Dilated Peoples. AWOL One was praised by Spin Magazine as “one of the premiere voices of emo-rap”, with admiration from Vice, URB Magazine, LA Weekly, and other press outlets throughout the 2000’s. His first album, the 2001 collaboration with Daddy Kev Souldoubt, quickly became seen as an L.A. underground hip hop worldwide classic.
