Morray has released his latest reflective single, “Bad Situations.” Emoting atop wailing guitars and dramatic pianos, a grateful Morray thanks God for his success before listing the ways in which his life has changed, none more important than promising his mom that she’ll never want for anything in life.
With his church-trained singing and sharp lyrical eye, Morray has made a name for himself by unpacking the emotional toll of life in the trenches and the life-saving power of hope. Reflecting on how his life changed after his lightning quick come up, Morray dives deeply into his emotions on “Bad Feelings.”
Few know the hustle like Morray. Even when his money is blowing up “like a grenade,” the lingering threat of it disappearing keeps him humble: he vows to stay vigilant–he knows what it’s like to have nothing, and he’s determined to stay at the top for as long as he can: “Big dreams and visions, I gotta stay ahead,” sings Morray in his signature melodic flow.
“Bad Situations” is Morray’s second new song since the release of his debut album Street Sermons. It follows “Mime,” which appears on the official soundtrack for Madden 22.
Debuting at No.41 on the Billboard 200 and propelling Morray to No.1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, Street Sermons taps into the spiritual uplift and church-trained singing that makes Morray’s brand of hip-hop so unique, taking unflinching looks at the Fayetteville native’s youthful struggles and indiscretions and examining his motivations to succeed.
Home to his breakout single “Quicksand,” which recently earned a gold certification from the RIAA and surpassed the 100 million view milestone on YouTube, the project contains universal truths about the tragedies and triumphs of growing up in the hood, filtered through Morray’s experience as a neighborhood kid made good. Complex ranked Street Sermons at No.10 on their list of “Best Albums of 2021 So Far.” In July, Morray revisited one of the tape’s highlights “Trenches,” recruiting Polo G to add a verse for “Trenches (Remix).”
