I first got hip to Wordsworth back in high school. He was on this Black Star song called “Twice inna Lifetime”. He easily had my favorite verse on that record and became one of the leading names I checked for as I began diving into the world of late 90′s/early 2000′s underground hip-hop. Dude just had a great voice and some of the most intricate rhyme schemes and punchlines I had heard at the time. I never really hopped on the “Punch-N-Words” EP, but I did check for “Mirror Music”, which was Words’ first official release. It was a really cold album with some pretty interesting song concepts. Definitely a record built for the emcee in me.
Around 2006, my dude J. Rawls introduced me to Wordsworth at a mutual show we all had at Wittenburg University. Words & I stayed in contact and ended up making some music together. You might remember him on the song “One More” off my “World is Ours” album (I have another song in the pipeline with him dropping pretty soon as well actually).
Fast-forward to Summer 2012 . Words will finally be releasing his long-awaited follow-up to “Mirror Music” entitled “The Photo Album”. For those of you who are fans of East-Coast lyricism from what I feel is one of the last class of NY artists to really bring something fresh to the progression of hip-hop (not counting Dipset of course), check this record out (it drops this Tuesday, 6/12). I actually produced the song called “Feel Me”.
