A streetwise teenager with bottomless charisma and memorable rhymes, OMB Peezy‘s talent transcends regional boundaries. Today, the Alabama-born Sacramento resident announces Humble Beginnings, a collaborative project with Grammy-nominated super producer Cardo Got Wingz. While Cardo is known for his chart-topping hits for the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar, the Texas-based producer’s ear for rising talent has led him to collaborate with artists like Wiz Khalifa, Dom Kennedy, and Nef The Pharaoh early on in their journeys, and makes him the perfect producer to channel Peezy’s versatility and potential. Humble Beginnings is due out in October. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Flashing a rapidfire flow over a piano-led beat, Peezy reveals his recipe for success on the Noisey-premiered “Pressure,” his latest loose single.

Praised by The FADER as “the Future of Rap” and as the “New Voice of Regional Rap,” the 20-year-old Sacramento resident is a natural born spitter, with years of freestyling experience and a supernatural sense of songcraft. 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“When I Was Down,” “Porch,” and “Lay Down,
