The two GRAMMY nominations are the culmination of a meteoric rise that started with “Quicksand,” a GOLD-certified hit that reached the Billboard Hot 100 and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and his critically acclaimed debut album Street Sermons, which propelled Morray to #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart. Morray joined J. Cole on “The Off-Season Tour,” rocking sold-out crowd in a series of stadium dates. Morray was a standout performer at DreamVille Fest earlier this year and he reached a personal milestone in June, when he performed at Fayetteville’s Juneteenth Jubilee, marking his first-ever performance as a headliner in his hometown.
