Like many musicians, rap artist Morewop was introduced to music at a young age. He began playing drums in church as a child and then, at 19, began creating his own music. He did not take it seriously, however. Freestyling and booth time allowed him to record songs, but Morewop never released them. Being born and raised on Chicago’s southside gave him a unique life experience and perspective to put into his music, and once he began his career.
In a personal interview, Morewop described the struggles he has overcome. He survived “getting shot, losing homies to gun violence, beating cases that could have changed lives forever, and separating from ones who did not really love him.” All of these became the hardest subjects Morewop has written about in his music. Morewop also praises his loved ones for getting him to the point he has reached today. His first two projects were well received by fans, gaining quick traction and amassing over a million views on YouTube and TikTok. “WOPTOBER,” an EP, and the full-length album “Who I Do It 4” are currently out and available for fans. Morewop also recently announced his subsequent work. A project called “Road Runner” is coming soon, along with much more to follow.
Morewop believes his music has been well received because of its message. He states, “There ain’t no cap in my music. I only rap about [stuff] I have been through, or seen, or was around.” This realness comes from his life experiences and is also why he has dedicated his soon-to-drop project to fellow overcomers. Morewop reveals, “The next project will be dedicated to hustlers of all kinds, just grinding and trying to reach their full potential while facing different hurdles and overcoming them.”
