Remy Johnson’s rich vocals switch easily between the smooth and jaunty sounds that celebrate life to the seriousness of social responsibility and life and death situations. It’s something with which he’s intimately acquainted. He’s the son of an MK Freedom Fighter, a group founded by Nelson Mandela.

The artist has had a string of hits, two of which were “Smoke My Drugs” released in Nov. 2018 that quickly topped Nasty C’s “King” featuring A$AP Ferg and AKA’s “Fela In Versace,” achieving 17,678 streams. He released “Get to the Bag” in May 2019 (featuring Snow Chamberlain), a freestyle track that was a hit across multiple demographics and musical preferences.
