Local rapper EDWN released an EP, Working on Growing Up, Aug. 17.

This is the first project he has released in two years. This album won’t disappoint fans of his past work. Working on Growing Up has a good-vibes feel while providing a message of growth and maturity. 

Since 2017, EDWN has faced several losses, including the death of a brother, a sister and the end of a long relationship. “I’ve been taking time to reflect on myself and see how much I’ve grown,” he said. “I told myself no matter what happens, I will not give up on my dress because I know I am meant to make an impact on the world with my music.”

This album focuses more on the lyrical aspect of his songwriting. EDWN’s verses are full of emotion. On this EP, EDWN focused more on the meaning of his words and letting the verses speak for themselves. However, the backing tracks on all four songs elevate his work from a low-key freestyle to a major production. The full EP can be heard on Spotify.
