Morray‘s emotional singing and empathetic lyrics make him an ideal avatar for those struggling in the streets, and an excellent role model for those looking to make it out. His song “Trenches” is an ode to people who think they are out of options, urging them to stay positive through the pain. Today, the Fayetteville, NC native shares “Trenches” (Remix), which adds a verse from Polo G, another street storyteller whose lyrics speak for the less fortunate. The new remix juxtaposes Morray’s gospel-influenced passion with Polo’s plaintive and conversational melodies, the younger rapper spinning a succinct 16 about his rise from tragedy to triumph: “‘Member I was f*cked up, now my foreign in the hood parked/You can beat the system if you street and booksmart,” intones Polo G.
Directed by Justice Silvera, the video follows the story of a man who works hard every day to put food on his family’s plates, resisting the clarion call of street life so he can be present for his wife and young daughter. Morray and Polo G provide the perspective of those who’ve escaped their past hardship, but their lyrics prove that men like the video’s protagonist deserve just as much respect as any rap star. “Trenches” (Remix) is the latest in a long line of quality videos from Morray, most recently the video for “Mistakes,” a highlight from his debut album Street Sermons.
