Drawing countless comparisons to Southern rap titans like Lil Boosie, Alabama-born Sacramento rapper OMB Peezy is a prodigious talent. Returning for a heart-wrenching and confident street anthem, Peezy reflects on the risks and successes in his life on “Pray For Me.” A collaboration with producer Adam Snow, who has worked with the likes of Lil B and Tayyib Ali, “Prey For Me” is an ethereal trap ballad, complete with airy vocal samples and circular piano. The track features an appearance from Gucci Mane, who contributes a typically witty verse: “L.A. with Jefe/CEO the check say/Two mil my neck say/Fly the G8 the next day.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

Premiered by Complex and featuring an appearance from former touring partner Yhung T.O. of SOB X RBE on the effortlessly funky, mob-influenced opener “Talk My Shit,” Humble Beginnings arrived via Sick Wid It Records/300 Entertainment.
Born in Alabama, the 20-year-old Peezy moved to the west coast when he was 12, developing a reputation as a rap prodigy, building a following on YouTube, and gaining the respect of the new wave of Bay Area artists such as Nef The Pharaoh and legends such as E-40. In the past few months, OMB Peezy started to parlay his grassroots local fanbase into a national following, earning millions of combined streams on his singles like the Noisey-premiered “Pressure
