North Carolina-raised emcee Morray calls on former YBN affiliate and surefire rapper Cordae for his latest single and video “Still Here.” Produced by DONTHYPEME, the song sees the two rappers reminiscing on their past and all of the struggles that come with life but despite that, they remain composed.
In the opening verse, Cordae raps, “They say life ain’t no fairytale / And real music barely sells.” The bar seemingly nods at the album sales of his sophomore studio album From a Birds Eye View, which sold 20K album units. That number is less than his 2019 debut album, though the fellow NC rapper points out that numbers don’t compare to the music’s message or his own artistic growth.
Elsewhere, Morray raps, “The way I’m actin’ nowadays a nigga really miss ’em / No real location, movin’ around, that’s how a nigga livin’.” Throughout the song, the pair inject their soulful melodies and smooth lyricism over the instrumental. “Still Here” is the rapper’s first single since November’s release of “Never Fail” with Benny Butcher. Prior to that, he dropped off records “Bad Situations” while on tour with J. Cole.
This year, Morray is gearing up for a prolific run with his forthcoming full-length project slated to drop later this year as well. In the meantime, listen to “Still Here” featuring Cordae below.
