Single: OMB Peezy – “My Dawg”

The Bama-via-Bay Area Rapper Shares a Gorgeous and Poignant Highlight from Loyalty Over Love, Out Tomorrow

8.9.2018

Critical Praise:

“[OMB Peezy] is tough but melodic, with a youthfully urgent voice and production that’s indebted to Louisiana and California.” – New York Times

“Peezy’s impassioned flow makes the circumstances he’s discussing feel visceral and immediate as a listener; there’s nothing impressionistic about his bars” – Pigeons and Planes

“This kid from Alabama is the future of rap.” – The FADER

The Single:

Applying his motormouthed southern drawl to the high-energy instrumentals of his adopted homeland of Northern California, OMB Peezy breaks down the boundaries of regional rap. Taking the time to pour one out for a close friend, Peezy shares the mournful, yet defiant My Dawg.” Digging deep into his roots, eschewing Bay Area styles for a piano-and-organ-led southern instrumental, Peezy mournfully recounts painful memories, wishing for one last peaceful moment with his lost friend and lashing out at those he believes is responsible: “Every morning I wake up and I’m waitin on you to call/I hear your voice when I’m in the studio tellin’ me ‘Imma ball’/We gon’ hold court in this street, fuck the law/You wanted me to win, these n*ggas waitin’ on me to fall.” Premiered by XXL, “My Dawg,” which follows the lyrical loose single “Got You,” is the latest single off Loyalty Over LovePeezy’s mixtape, releasing tomorrow.

“A lot of people in my life have died in 2018. I know that everyone loves somebody and they will feel this song,” Peezy tells XXL. “I express my feelings through music and I know a lot of people will understand what I’m going through.”

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.

OMB Peezy Background:

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 2017, OMB Peezy parlayed his grassroots local fanbase into a national following, earning millions of combined streams on his singles like the virally popular hitsWhen I Was Down,” Porch,” and Lay Down,” which Pigeons & Planes listed at #14 in their halftime list of Best Songs of 2017 and which Passion of the Weiss listed as their #19 for the year. In October, Peezy shared his debut project Humble Beginnings, a slap-heavy six-pack produced in full by Grammy-nominated producer Cardo Got Wingz (Kendrick Lamar, Jeezy, Meek Mill) and released by Sick Wid It/300 Ent. Peezy also toured throughout 2017, supporting Detroit artist Tee Grizzley in the fall and accompanying SOB x RBE on a national tour in the spring. In January, Peezy shared Young & Reckless, a joint mixtape with Peezy’s 300 Ent. labelmate Sherwood Marty, which proved that Peezy’s excellent run of 2017 singles was no fluke.
