Hillsboro, Texas Native J’Moris keeps it G-Funk in his latest video for “Dope Life,” kicking it back to the cocaine 80s of hip hop living. Slurred rapping glides with the beat and keeps everything copacetic while introspective scenes from the rapper’s life create memory stills that offer a glimpse into his upbringing. The rapper, who has been compared to Big Sean, Kevin Gates, and J.Cole, contends that loyalty over everything gets you to where you want to be in the streets. J’Moris humbly asks God to watch over him despite the hardships he’s been through. Hard lives can create hard people, but in order to survive you have to learn to sit in acceptance of your own truths, a treading theme of the video. In one chilling line he reveals, “Growing up I never had shit…dreaded life so I grew my hair out…trying to ride above the street life and take the path of the curb.” Vibe out.
