According to a press release, the aptly-titled Street Sermons features 13 songs that tap into the “spiritual uplift and church-trained singing that makes Morray’s brand of Hip Hop so unique.” The project includes the previously released singles “Quicksand,” “Kingdom,” “Switched Up” and “Big Decisions,” which all exemplify his penchant for soulful storytelling.
The 28-year-old Morray has been on a steady trajectory toward international notoriety, bolstered by his recent signing with Interscope Records in a partnership with Moe Shalizi’s Pick Six Records. Speaking to Billboard, Morray excitedly talked about the new opportunity and promised to deliever emotive records.
“I’m speaking for every person that has real emotions,” he said. “I’m speaking to everyone that has a heart. Every song that you hear from me is a real feeling. I want people to cry with me. I want people to grow with me. I want people to understand where we’ve come from, and that we can always make it out of everything. … It’s just so dope to be on a winning team with Pick Six and to add a power house like Interscope to the mix is just an amazing blessing.”
Morray started making waves last year and quickly garnered co-signs from heavy hitters such as J. Cole, JAY-Z and Rick Ross following the release of “Quicksand.” The song landed at No. 100 on the Billboard Hot 100 and began his meteoric rise to success. Street Sermons is expected to arrive on April 28 via Pick Six Records/Interscope. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.
