US rapper Morray finishes off a huge year by choosing 10Trax that mean something to him, from Drake to Pop Smoke to J. Cole and more.
Morray’s fortunes have risen rapidly in these past couple of years. He burst onto the scene in March 2020 with the music video for “Quicksand”, which would later chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in October in its full release as his debut single.
He’s been co-signed by J. Cole, with whom he later collaborated, and DaBaby, fellow natives of North Carolina. Morray has parlayed that success into a nonstop drive of releasing music, which culminated in the release of his hit mixtape ‘Street Sermons‘ in April, which cracked the Billboard top 50. In September, he began a prestigious run in support of J. Cole on his autumn tour alongside 21Savage.
To celebrate a massive 2021 for Morray, we asked him to pick the 10Trax he had on repeat, ranging from 2Pac to Musiq Soulchild and more. Dive in!
