Rapper OMB Peezy was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1997. Part of a musical family, Peezy started rapping at age 12, soaking up Southern rap influences like Kevin Gates, Soulja Slim, and Masta P while developing his own style.
Peezy was still in his teens when he started to make serious waves with his music, dropping the blistering single "Lay Down" in 2016. The track caught the attention of many, including rapper Nef the Pharaoh, who played the track for Bay Area legend E-40. E-40 signed Peezy to his 300 Entertainment/Sick Wid It label. By now relocated to Sacramento, Peezy released the singles "When I Was Down" and "Porch" in 2017 before releasing his debut mixtape, Loyalty Over Love, later that year. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
