In promotion for Pawz One's debut album, Face The Facts, Below System has joined forces with HipHopDX for an exclusive giveaway, whereby we'll be giving away free copies of the CD from today through Friday.

The West Coast has gained a following for being a purely gangsta rap scene, but the LA-based newcomer Pawz One challenges this ideology with the release of his debut album Face The Facts. Though the 18 track project plays out like a Golden Era hustler's anthem, the delivery and presentation is what makes this one so memorable.

The blend of Pawz's lyrical potency, coupled with the boom-bap production savvy of LA's Default and Breeze, prove to be a notable combination that's worthy of your attention. From the piano frantic "Officer Down" to the A Tribe Called Quest sampled "The Luv [Remix]" featuring Masta Ace and Ariano, Face The Facts showcases a West Coast vibe, balanced with that East Coast grit. Beats aside, the lyrics of 'coming up and taking over' are central to the album's theme, as Pawz creates a Scarface'esque story of success. Face The Facts includes additional guest features from Ras Kass, Termanology, Rakaa Iriscience, 2Mex and Self Provoked and is now available via Below System. 

For a chance to win a free CD, simply enter your email address in the address provided, where one winner will be selected per day between Monday, March 3rd and Friday, March 8th. Winning contestants will be notified via email, and will be asked to provide their mailing address.
