Last month we told you about Around the Word and Back, the documentary being made about Matt Rutherford, a local man who made history by sailing around both continents of the Americas by himself. In the process of putting the movie together, director Tony Salvia came across music that Rutherford had made with his former classmate Spoke In Wordz. Inspired by what he heard, Salvia got in touch with the rapper and asked him to produce some music for the film. With the help of David McCoy (DMD) and LateNite Ent, Spoke delivered a track that's set to be featured in the opening scenes of the movie. Continue on to listen to "Around the World and Back."
