Rising Texan rapper/force-of-nature J’Moris recently dropped a 4 track EP called “Extra”. J’Moris’s unique style combines the best of hip-hop, southern rap, dub & modern trap. J’Moris tells it straight and pulls no punches; his southern drawl, no-holds-barred lyrical delivery is recommended for fans of Master P (“his grind was great”, says Moris), Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, T.I., Kevin Gates, Nipsey Hustle & Biggie Smalls.
“From 9 to 5, 5 to 9, I’m out making plays. See, I’m something special. Far from the regular. You may do it BIG but I do it EXTRA,” he spits.
“I ain’t never had sh*t. Nope. Not at all. Back against the wall. Screamin’ fu*k ’em all.” (from ‘Not At All’)
A self-dubbed ‘product of environment’, J’Moris has been drawn to music since he was a young boy. While battling the trials and tribulations of life, he’s always found music to be an unrivaled outlet of expression. During his college venture at Lamar University, Moris co-founded the organization Tru Misfitz. Continuing to maneuver more into the music industry, Moris found his southern influence played a heavy part in what he does, deeply embedded in his music and persona.
Born in Fort Worth, Texas during the ’90s exposed J’Moris to a lot growing up. The drugs, pimps & thugs flooded the streets.
“My family moved to Hillsboro, Texas to try and get away, but to no avail. The crack epidemic consumed Hillsboro also. Watching my loved ones fall victim to the drugs or the streets, I felt he only had one choice. Use them both to My advantage & find a way out. My older brother, Crunch, looked out for me a lot. He never wanted me in the streets but he also knew the outcome was inevitable. He showed me how to finesse the game more, how to be apart of the game but also be handed off. Unseen. The lessons he taught me molded me into who I am today and also gave me the opportunities to graduate high school. Something he, or my little brother J Hodge, never did.”
“I tell God to watch out for me while I chase the route of evil…” (from ‘Extra’)
J’Moris’s no-holds-barred style is inspired by hip-hop greats/moguls like Master P (“his grind was great”, says Moris), Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, T.I., Kevin Gates, Nipsey Hustle & Biggie Smalls.
