With an uncommon command of deep-feeling southern rap music, OMB Peezy is wise far beyond his years. Delivering an affecting mission statement, OMB Peezy bares his soul in the video for “Mind of Overkill,” premiered by L.A. Leakers. A tuneful and intelligent rumination on the ghosts of Peezy’s past, “Mind of Overkill” finds the young rapper soaring above a gorgeous production from Drum Dummy, who adorns the track with spiritual blues piano. “Mind of Overkill” is a succinct summary of Peezy’s life and career up to this point, with a probing eye on the past and the future, which makes it the ideal closing track for Loyalty Over Love, Peezy’s recently released mixtape. Earlier this summer, Peezy treated fans to another revealing glimpse when he shared Behind The Title: Loyalty Over Love, a new FADER-premiered mini-doc that explains the main themes behind the album. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Nearly two years after his debut single “Lay Down” put Peezy on the map, the motormouthed emcee shares Loyalty Over Love, his debut solo full-length mixtape. Stuffed with glistening Dirty South instrumentals, Loyalty Over Love is the culmination of Peezy’s rise, with 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,” enjoying the spoils of his success in the TK Kravitz-featuring “Yeah Yeah,” mourning lost friends in “My Dawg,” recently given the music video treatment to the tune of 223k views on YouTube, 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 additional appearances from Mozzy, Paper Lovee, and OMB Iceberg, Loyalty Over Love arrives via Sick Wid It Records/300 Ent.
