A natural born leader, OMB Peezy is perfecting the art of resonating with others, doing so through honest lyricism, fierce delivery, and a resilient knowledge of self. Born and raised in the Orange Grove projects in Mobile, Alabama, a relocation to Sacramento, California at the age of 12 offered Peezy and his family an opportunity at a better life, and in turn, put his natural desire to express himself into overdrive. Through turning to his raw talents as a rapper, Peezy began to separate himself from his peers and claim ownership of his own authentic story and perspectives, an integral component of his artistry that has only strengthened over time. Peezy's consistency and drive led him to having a breakout year in 2017, with his debut single "Lay Down" introducing him to a national audience and catapulting his career to the next level, all before he reached the legal drinking age. His second release, "When I Was Down," was met with similar high praise, even helping him garner the attention of emerging rapper Nef The Pharaoh and Bay Area legend E-40, inspiring the latter to get heavily involved with his career as a mentor.
While persistently gaining traction and further bettering his craft as a lyricist, Peezy inked a deal with 300 Entertainment and E-40's Sick Wid It Records, going on to release his debut EP, Humble Beginnings, in October 2017. The Cardo Got Wingz-produced project, which has since amassed over 20 million streams across platforms, brilliantly showcases his connection to the South and the West, weaving influences from both into his refreshingly distinctive sound. Through showcasing his talents on the road as a supporting act on Tee Grizzley's ‘Aint It A Blessing’ tour in the fall and later on during a national run alongside SOB x RBE, OMB Peezy began solidifying his reputation as a high-energy performer, allowing his free-spirited and rough-around-the-edges nature to come to life on stage. With his focused ambition in full-swing, OMB Peezy teamed up with 300 Ent. labelmate Sherwood Marty, releasing a joint mixtape Young & Reckless, a project that furthered his mission to be a voice and representative for the youth.
From honing his freestyles to tactfully altering his flow, OMB Peezy's strengths will next be displayed on his sophomore project, Loyalty Over Love, which is due out this August via Sick Wid It Records/300 Ent. The project features guest appearances from TK Kravitz, Mozzy, Paper Lovee and OMB Peezy, with production by DrumDummie, Dave-O, Dubba-AA and Ear Drummers, among others. Now 21, OMB Peezy aims to tell his story and pay homage to his roots, all while remaining admirably humble despite working to make his dreams come to fruition. As such, he has become a beacon of hope for so many of his young fans--a role he doesn't take for granted--encouraging others to forge their own path and rise above circumstances of oppression. From weaving motivational gems into his self-affirming lyrics to blending his Southern bravado with the guidance of his Northern California contemporaries, OMB Peezy is emerging as one of the most important voices of contemporary rap, taking his newfound success in stride. With a co-headlining tour with E-40 and a joint project with Nef the Pharaoh on the horizon, OMB Peezy is proving he was born ready and far from satisfied.
