J’Moris tells it like it is on his new album Moris Better: Loveless Confessions — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
His biggest artistic statement since 2020’s Blac February album, the Texas rapper’s sophomore album finds J’Moris showcasing versatility on the mic as he introduces soulful, distinctive vocal melodies over R&B tracks, chilled, seductive downtempo gems, strip club anthems and booming Biggie-esque bravado over dangerous hip-hop and trap beats.
On Moris Better: Loveless Confessions, J’Moris is at once a ladies’ man, a street-wise storyteller, the life of the party, and someone not to be toyed with. Stylistically, the album is intended to flow as a single vibe, and it achieves this purpose despite its varied musical ineup. The new album was produced by Supamario Beats, with 606Gus and session9 contributing a track each. Guests include D. Hewitt on the heady, addictive Fall Thru and 254 Assassin, The Composer and Four000 Units on the effortlessly smooth Wanna Ball. Other essential tracks include album opener Magic, Too Spicy, Skeletons, Activated and Loveless Confessions.
Like a suave, street-wise prodigy of Master P and Gucci Mane, J’Moris has a style that is all realness, dripping with heavyweight swagger and southern grit. A self-dubbed ‘product of environment’, J’Moris has been drawn to music since he was a young boy. Growing up in Fort Worth during the ’90s exposed J’Moris to a lot as 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 I only had one choice. Use them both to my advantage and find a way out.”
J’Moris has previously released five EPs, seven singles and the album Blac February, an autobiographical 15-track collection that flows like a classic. Moris followed up the success of Blac February by the singles Off The Porch and Blac Amerikkka, the latter featuring fellow Hillsboro MCs 254 Assassin and D. Hewitt in a scathing indigtment of racial inequality in the U.S.
