Haitian rapper Won-G has been getting alot of attention as his new single titled “Caught Up In The Rapture,” which includes cameos by Paris Hilton, was featured on AOL.com a month ago and received over half a million downloads in the first week of it being released. It did so well that it stayed on AOL’s top 10 select of clips for three weeks.

The single pays homage to Blondie’s 1980 hit “Rapture,” and will help the release of his upcoming album titled Rage of the Age on Real Sovage/Sanctuary Urban Records. The full article at ballerstatus.net has since been removed or relocated.

Won-G Thinks Rap Should Mature

Won-G was on Soul Train over the weekend and talked with SoulTrain.com where he addressed the no vulgarity on his new album. Won-G says, “I just think right now America’s in a time of need right now. You know, don’t get it wrong — I used to do that back in the day, coming up as a child, as a youngster in the hip-hop game. But I think right now the world needs something more. The world needs something different. We want groups like [The] Backstreet [Boys], ‘NSync and groups like that that are reaching to the masses. I think that rap needs to mature, and I think rap needs to educate themselves by just not finding lyrics of expression through vulgarity, but finding lyrics of expression through education, so that’s what I’m trying to do.”
