Specializing in heartfelt and street smart Southern Rap, OMB Peezy blasted onto the scene in 2017 with his distinctive drawl and righteous anger. Following up eighteen months worth of viral singles and acclaimed EPs, Peezy announces Loyalty Over Love, his debut album. Stuffed with glistening Dirty South instrumentals, Loyalty Over Love is the culmination of Peezy’s sharp lyrics about his life as a rising star and his struggles with the legal system. Whether he’s seething at inept law enforcement on the previously released and Noisey-premiered “Fuck My P.O.,” fiercely asserting his individuality and independence within an oppressive system on “Souljah Life Mentality,” revealing his struggles on “All Kinds of Pain,” or paying tribute to the West Coast with the Dr. Dre-referencing and Donny Hathaway-sampling “Ghetto Boy.” Peezy is a magnetic presence, weaving his threats and boasts around hot instrumentals. Featuring appearances from TK Kravitz, Sada Baby, and others, Loyalty Over Love arrives on August 10th via Sick Wid It Records/300 Ent.

Featuring an infectious appearance from TK Kravitz, “Yeah Yeah” exemplifies the soulful bounce of Loyalty Over Love, showcasing Peezy’s punchy lyricism over cascading piano and reverb-drenched guitars. “Yeah Yeah” is a radio ready banger and a possible stepping stone from regional stardom to national recognition for Peezy.
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 2017, OMB Peezy parlayed his grassroots local fanbase into a national following, earning millions of combined streams on his singles like the virally popular hits“When I Was Down,” “Porch,” and “Lay Down,
