J’Moris – “Off the Porch”


Impressing in the past year with tracks like “SnapChat” and “Make It Look Easy,” J’Moris returns with another confident hip-hop cut in “Off the Porch.” Lyrics speak to growing up and retaining priorities throughout, complemented by a spacey synth flicker that assembles a consuming beat alongside pit-patter percussion. The track represents the first of several singles J’Moris recorded during the pandemic, self-recorded at his home studio, with beats provided by collaborator Supamario Beatz. “Off the Porch” is another stellar showing from the Hillsboro, TX-based artist.

Regarding the track, J’Moris says the following: “‘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.””

“Off the Porch” and other memorable tracks released in August can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2020’ Spotify playlist.
