If you zipped through our New Music playlist with ease, we have a little something extra for your ears. 

Andrew Johnson—a Westville-born hip hop artist who goes by the name Anewbis—just launched his debut album. Johnson first hit the stage last September, opening for Quake Matthews and Kayo at The Commune in New Glasgow.

Johnson’s album, Tha Fre​$​h Prince of Wel​-​Fair, came out on June 25. Dane Richard produced the tracks. Johnson also collaborated with Mitchell Paquette (AKA Chell) and Jordan Mackie (simply known as Mackie). It’s available on Bandcamp for free.

There’s “a song to fit each mood,” explains Johnson, including everything from party jams to satirical songs.

“The purpose of this album was so that there’s music available so anyone and everyone can find my music online,” he says. Folks can “download and check it out before they actually go and purchase future albums that I release.”

For a chance to see Johnson think (and rap) on his feet, hit up Hugo’s Bar and Grill in August. He’ll be participating in his first rap battle through Rhyme and Punishment Battle League.

“Westvilladelphia” is Johnson’s most popular song so far, and you can take a peek at the music video below to see (and listen) for yourself.
