The emerging young rapper introduces himself to the world with a confrontational, attention-grabbing track. One of the most exciting young voices emerging on the international scene, Morish is ready to make himself known, and his debut single “Better Than Me,” is the perfect introduction to the young artist.
“You will never find nobody better than me,” Morish repeats throughout the song. Addressing a former lover who’s wronged him, he makes a convincing case, taking his heartbreak and turning it into a vengeful send-off. “I wrote you many songs, but this is the last one,” he concludes, triumphantly moving past a toxic situation. It’s a message that almost anyone can relate to.
Accompanied by a stylish music video, “Better Than Me,” shows that Morish is just as comfortable on camera as he is behind the mic. With his charismatic presence and lyrical prowess, he should become a fixture on the hip hop scene for years to come. “Better Than Me” is available everywhere now.

MORE ABOUT: The notion that ‘true sacrifice is born out of love’ guides Morish through every aspect of his life, from music to relationships and everything in between. Born into a family of Sri Lankan refugee parents who worked tirelessly to overcome their struggles, Windisch-raised Morish was quick to develop empathy, compassion and gratitude, and it shows in his music. Positive vibes are a hallmark feature of Morish’s brand of Hip Hop, and encompasses everything from his lyrics, flow, rhythm, speed, and melodies.
For Morish, his motifs stem from a desire to open the doorways of conversation to deeper topics, and often finds himself leaning into subjects that others might not have the courage to talk about. Each song conveys a specific emotion, covering the spectrum of human emotion — everything from anger and sadness to gratitude and love.
Hip Hop has always been about having something to say, and for Morish, he communicates from the heart, as he recites tales of redemption, learning, and collectively moving forward as a species. Ultimately, his goal is to put passion and intellect at the forefront of everything he does, as he believes they are the most powerful weapons we have as a society.
Morish has been actively involved with music from the age of 16. In 2018, he published his first music video for the single ‘Grateful’, which received significant media attention and was notably featured in Aargauerzeitung.ch.
Today, he is gearing up to release his debut album, which is scheduled for 2020. Guided by Morish’s principles, this body of work will see him continue to address societal problems and bring light to change through positivity. Further release details to follow soon.
