Fort Worth, TX, rapper J'Moris is ready to release his debut full-length album Blac February on Feb 7, 2020, after a string of 5 EP's and 2 single releases starting with Moris Better: The Hangover in 2016.
Intending to be more raw and revealing than ever, Blac February is a sprawling 15-track album that is both completely autobiographical and yet universal. Whether he's rapping about street life on Blue Cheese, being antisocial on Venting, going through frustrating relationships on Anymore, being black in America on Alien, pre-game partying on B.I.D., or making sense of it all on Peace and Letter to God, J's story is authentic and real. Those listening to his words about overcoming suicidal thoughts and paralyzing doubt on tracks like the soul-infused Make It Look Easy will reflect on their own struggle.
The result is a proper rap album that flows like a classic. With equal parts finesse and blunt force, balancing southern rap/hip hop, R&B, soul, and trap stylings, Blac February is a must listen album for hardcore hip hop enthusiasts. Featured on the album are rappers D. Hewitt, 254 Assassin and Bellafante as well as singer Valance and comedian Ben Jackson.
Blac February drops Feb 7 on all platforms.
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.
Growing up in Fort Worth, Texas during the 90's 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 alot. 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 hands 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 equal parts finesse and blunt force, inspired by hip hop greats/moguls like Master P ("his grind was great", says Moris), Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, T.I., Kevin Gates, Nipsey Hussle & Biggie Smalls.
J'Moris has released 5 EP's, two singles, and now, a full-length album, Blac February (released Feb 7,2020), an autobiographical 15-track collection that flows like a classic.
