|Straight outta Hillsboro, TX, Hip Hop artists J’Moris, D. Hewitt and 254 Assassin unite on the urgent new single “BLAC AMERIKKA,” which features a black and white visual by @ShotbyLloyd. United in message, each rapper addresses the current extreme racial tensions and protests erupting throughout the USA and across the globe.|
About the song’s subject matter, J’Moris speaks: “It seems like we always know what to say until it’s time to say it. Every day is a constant battle, a constant struggle. We see police. They see us as trouble. Shit, when’s enough gonna be enough? They treat us like we’re the problem and then we become the victim, they say we cry about it, but when we stand up for what we believe in, they make sure we die about it and they leave us there. I mean, when you’re gonna continue to kneel on our necks, we can’t breathe. That shit don’t fly with me. I’m tired of it.”
Moris, D. Hewitt and 254 Assassin last collaborated on “Alien,” which was featured on J’Moris’s full-length “Blac February” album.

J’Moris Artist Biography
Like a suave, street-wise prodigy of Master P and Gucci Mane, J’Moris‘s style is all killer, dripping with heavyweight swagger and grit.
A self-dubbed ‘product of my environment,’ J’Moris has been drawn to music since he was a young boy. While battling the trials and tribulations of life, he’s always found music to be an unrivaled outlet of expression. During his college venture at Lamar University, Moris co-founded the organization Tru Misfitz. Continuing to maneuver more into the music industry, Moris found his southern influence played a heavy part in what he does, deeply embedded in his music and persona.
Growing up in Fort Worth, Texas during the 90’s exposed J’Moris to a lot growing up. The 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 he only had one choice. Use them both to my advantage and find a way out. My older brother, Crunch, looked out for me alot. He never wanted me in the streets, but he also knew the outcome was inevitable. He showed me how to finesse the game more, how to be apart of the game, but also be hands off.. Unseen.. The lessons he taught me molded me into who I am today and also gave me the opportunities to graduate high school. Something he, or my little brother J Hodge, never did.””I tell God to watch out for me while I chase the route of evil…” (from ‘Extra’)
J’Moris’s no-holds-barred style is equal parts finesse and blunt force, inspired by hip hop greats/moguls like Master P (“his grind was great”, says Moris), Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, T.I., Kevin Gates, Nipsey Hussle & Biggie Smalls.
J’Moris has released five EP’s, three singles, and full-length album, Blac February (released Feb 7, 2020), an autobiographical 15-track collection that flows like a classic.
His single Off the Porch, (released 08/14/20) is a certified jolt of adrenaline and a taste of J’Moris’s realness.
When asked about the meaning of the term, J says “Off the Porch means I’m not dependent on my parents. I’m out of the house and in the streets grinding. Basically, you put in work and didn’t wait for handouts. Since you’re in the streets grinding and putting in work, you’ve “jumped off the porch.”
