Tell us about yourself and your music
Well, my name is Rashawd Morrell I’m a Christian Hip Hop Artist. Born in South Carolina, but raised in FL. My music is really focused on bouncing around different areas of life, where there was a trial I did or did not pass the test on and to show people that through those situations the forces of being human are very real. Those forces win sometimes, we all strive to do better but I’m a firm believer in being my authentic me. This very Idea is what fuels my passion for music because it allows me/us to know and be guided upward to something greater than us our selves. Through my music I want people to be the best self they can possibly be. Spiritually, mentally, physically, and In love.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest track is titled “HOT IN HERE” Its actually about something I’m going through currently, In the first verse you can here me running from a place of utter darkness and heat, I’m so desperate for a way out, so if there is a slither of light I am determined to flock to it. The second verse is where I want to end up being as there are certain areas in the elements of that verse that I’m not at all close to being it’s a hidden secret in that verse that unless you supported my music and close enough to knowing me. You’d know.
What inspired you to write this release?
Honestly, the fact that someone out there is feeling alone in a very dark place and he/she probably feels as if they are alone. But this song is confirmation that you are not alone in the fire I just choose God to be a rock to stand on in the fire.
Describe the writing and recording process
The funny thing is, I wrote this, mixed, and mastered it in about 4 hours. So I begin by praying before I write, asking God where he wants me to go, asking him to be the center of my words, sometimes he answers sometimes he doesn’t. I even write sometimes away from the word thats just my authentic self. Then I begin recording take after take until I get the right one, once that process is over I sit down and envision the sound that I want and I begin mixing with my eyes closed.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Currently I’m just getting started with finally stepping out with my music and talent I have kept on reserve until now. with me being a father to 6 my current funds go to my house first. But if I do get on tour you guys will be the first to know. I super promise!
