To open the segment, the Fayetteville, North Carolina native discovers his snack selections every time he smokes. To quench his thirst, his mouth rushes to say apple juice for the letter A. Then, on a snack note, he associates the letter B with a bowl of cereal. “I’m telling you, 2 in the morning, after that blunt and apple juice, bowl of cereal,” he slaps everyone at his sight.
A little further in the alphabet, the 28-year-old melodist expresses the love he has for his people. “E, ebony” means Black, what I am, what I like, damn it, you say? he said with a beaming smile and a sneer. “I like everyone though,” he adds. Morray double that feeling when it gets to the letter J. “Justice, because we need to stop messing around.” We have to start getting this for ourselves.
