Bursting onto the scene in 2017 with his inimitable drawl and tumbling flow, 20-year-old rapper OMB Peezy is ready to take over the game in 2018. Teaming up with kindred spirit and Baton Rouge native Sherwood Marty (recently featured in Complex’s Bout To Blow column), Peezy announces Young & Reckless, the duo’s upcoming collaborative mixtape. Packed with southern fried bangers, varied flows, and irresistible hooks, Young & Reckless finds the two emcees maneuvering through life with street wisdom and experiencing the pitfalls that come with the streets. Featuring an appearance from TK Kravitz and production from Drum Dummie and others, Young & Reckless releases on January 24th.
To accompany the mixtape announcement, OMB Peezy and Sherwood Marty share “Crash Out,” a classic Bayou banger with reverb-heavy guitar scratches, a walking bassline, sentimental keys, and skittering hi-hats. Produced by Drum Dummie, the maestro behind Peezy’s breakout hit “Lay Down,“ “Crash Out” finds Peezy and Marty recruiting Sherwood Flame for a tough-talking, violent street anthem. Premiered by XXL, “Crash Out” demonstrates the electric chemistry that permeates the entirety of Young & Reckless.

Signed to 300 Ent., Louisiana rapper Sherwood Marty burst onto the scene in 2016 with the breakthrough mixtape Struck in the Trenches: Self Made Vol. 1, which featured appearances from Scotty Cain and others. In 2017, Marty continued to build buzz, generating over 1.3 million views for his “Sherwood Baby” music video, earning more than 700k plays for his single “Ride,” and recording a popular remix to YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s hit single “Untouchable.” The latest in a long line of soulful Bayou-born rappers, Sherwood Marty will elevate his game even further in the coming year.
