Morray has been a name to watch in quarter 4 of 2020. With feel good hits such as “Quicksand” and “low key,” Morray has became a staple in new ascending emcees. His combination of raspy voice, infectious charisma, and incredible wordplay has put him on worldwide notice. Add in co-signs from Jay Z, J.Cole, and Rick Ross, the young Fayetteville rapper is on a roll.
However, he wanted to show a more serious side to him to end the year. He did that and much more with a new single & video titled “Dreamland.” Marked by ringing pianos and Morray’s church-trained vocal runs “Dreamland” is the artist’s pained recollection of growing up in poverty; and the lasting trauma caused by his experiences.
The North Carolina native recalls Christmases and birthdays without gifts, living in motels, and sleeping on “some carpet cause its better than the pavement.” In the track’s accompanying video, directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Ricch’s “The Box,” Lil Baby’s “Errybody” videos), Morray looks back at his younger self; from his early run-ins with the law to rough times at home.
He ultimately takes the place as his mother’s defender as she faces domestic violence; further cementing the difficulty of his situation as a youth and solidifying his dreams to change his situation using his musical ability.
Morray is ending his 2020 with a bang and we are excited to see what 2021 has in store for him. “Dreamland” is available on all digital streaming platforms and you can watch the official video on YouTube.
