Armed with a world-weary Southern drawl and street parables which never glorify or sugarcoat a treacherous lifestyle, Alabama-native OMB Peezy frequently displays a maturity that belies his age (20 years old). Peezy’s Word Of Mouth documentary chronicles the youngster’s rise and how he emerged from obscurity into a partnership with E-40‘s Sick Wid It Records and 300 Entertainment. Premiered by HipHopDX, the 10-minute video features commentary from 40 and YouTube’s Music Lead Naomi Zeichner, among others, as they explain what makes Peezy’s music resonate the way it has in less than a year.

Also in October, Peezy will be joining Detroit’s Tee Grizzley on his nationwide Ain’t It A Blessing tour. The 13-city tour starts October 4 in Seattle and ends October 30 in Detroit, and will also feature performances by Chicago’s Lud Foe and Detroit’s Sada Baby.
