AWON & PHONIKS ‘Nothing Less’

Apr 18, 2021 | Hip Hop, Reviews

Putting Newport News, Virginia, on the map

Tell me you’ve seen the Netflix Underdogs documentary. No!? You’ve got some catching up to do. It’s the ultimate hip hop feel good experience. You’ll see. This is Awon & Phoniks first material since that film and all their old school groove is in full effect. Phoniks paints a laidback scene sampling his beloved jazz and soul, and Awon brings his conversational flows. It’s been a tough year with issues of race and family naturally front and center. Guests bring variety across the tracks with Tiff The Gift still proving the perfect foil for Awon. These guys are putting Newport News, Virginia, on the map.
