Morray drops ‘Trenches’ remix with Polo G

Fayetteville and Chicago rappers link for a melodic banger.

North Carolina native Morray continues to link with rap superstars on his way to the top. He released the “Trenches” remix featuring Polo G on July 30, adding a spirited verse to the already passionate track.

Morray first teased the song on July 28, tweeting a picture of him and Polo on set for the song’s music video, with the caption alluding to the song’s drop. He then announced the track and cover art early in the day on July 29.

The song comes during a career-elevating year for Morray. Two months after his viral hit single “Quicksand” reached No. 100 on the Billboard Hot 100, he released his first project Street Sermons in late April. Solidifying him as one of the best rising soul rappers along with the likes of Polo G and Rod Wave, the project featured emotional motifs, impressive flows and catchy hooks like on songs “Switched Up” and “Nothing Now.”

He then found himself featured on fellow Fayetteville native J. Cole‘s sixth studio album The Off-Season in May, for the song “m y . l i f e,” also with 21 Savage. Peaking at No. 2 on the Hot 100, the song’s hook sung by Morray is truly the centerpiece of the track, with his strong, melancholic voice. He also will join 21 Savage on J. Cole’s nationwide tour this fall.

This momentum led to him becoming a 2021 XXL Freshman, seeing him put on wonderful performances in his solo freestyle and the group cypher.

Now, Morray has delivered the “Trenches” remix with the help of Polo G, whose verse comes in the backend of the track after Morray’s second rendition of the hook. He opens his verse touching on the adverse circumstances of the environment he grew up in.

Grew up in the ghetto know some savages with good hearts

He smokin’ on dead n****s every time that wood spark
