Morray — Street Sermons
Today, the Fayettenam (Fayetteville, NC) rep – Morray – has released his highly-anticipated solo effort Street Sermons, via Pick Six Records/Interscope. The featureless mixtape taps into his faith-driven ethos as an artist, spotlighting those church-trained vocals that have birthed a star.

To celebrate the Street Sermons release, Morray also shares the video for “Cant Use Me” – finding the buzzing emcee broadcasting his message to the world in typical Morray fashion, with melody.

Whether he’s dishing out walk-down anthems or sending warning shots towards the opposition over bass-heavy production, it’s evident that Lico wants all the smoke.
