A self-made star at the tender age of 20, Sacramento-via-Mobile rapper OMB Peezy is wise far beyond his years. Slowing down his typically motormouthed flow, Peezy lets his words speak for himself on “Got You,” his latest video single. Rocking a sing-song cadence above a plaintive piano-led production, Peezy recounts his childhood hardships, defiantly turning down hangers-on whose troubles could not approach Peezy’s at his lowest moment: “These n*ggas ain’t rappin’ what they live like/I been did this shit I’m tryin’ to live light.” Produced by Drum Dummie, who produced Peezy’s breakout hit “Lay Down,” “Got You” arrives a week ahead of Loyalty Over Love, Peezy’s upcoming mixtape.
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,” enjoying the spoils of his success in the TK Kravitz-featuring “Yeah Yeah,” 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 on August 10th via Sick Wid It Records/300 Ent.
