Released on August 6th, J’Moris came out with his latest project Extra EP. Falling somewhere in the Hip Hop trap world of Future, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and Rick Ross. With catchy choruses and his deep voice, it’s hard not to listen to the EP the whole way through in one sit. Produced better than the norm, and musically sophisticated in its own way, Extra is an interesting composite of deep, surface, and introspective.
The best artistry comes from the heart – from taking one’s own experiences and turning it into art. J’Moris is open and honest about his upbringing and his trials and tribulations. There is always a sense of triumph within his lyrics and music. Perhaps this is the most compelling component of his music – the very essence of it. This music is the makings of top 40s and top Spotify playlists. It sits well on the ears and feels right in settings like driving in cars and dancing in clubs.
Not At All is a track from the EP that really stands out. Not only is it catchy but it tells a story, one that’s captivating. The Texas based artist has promise. He is at his best when he is rhyming poetically about his struggles and pain. Beyond the rhetoric we often hear in trap music, it would be quite touching and revolutionary to hear more of these stories and thoughts on the way J’Moris sees the world, really.
