Few emcees pack as much street wisdom into a 16-bar verse as OMB Peezy, a 20-year-old prodigy with the soul of a veteran. Offering a glimpse into the inner life of a street soldier, Peezy shares “Deeper Than You Think,” his new video. “Deeper Than You Think” finds Peezy searching within himself, revealing the complicated explanation for his bad behavior: “Me and my brother was stugglin hustling, tryna get us a lil meal/lLotta these n***** be rappin bout livin that shit, we was in it for real/lotta these n***** be rappin bout livin that shit, just to get em a deal.”
In the video, Peezy plans a robbery, breaking into an enemy’s home and finding himself a fugitive from the law when the operation goes south. Featuring an appearance from OMB IceBerg, “Deeper Than You Think” is the latest video to be released from Loyalty Over Love, his recent mixtape, following the revealing clip for the tape’s opener “Venting Session” and the L.A. Leakers-premiered clip for the closing track “Mind of Overkill.”
Nearly two years after his debut single “Lay Down” put Peezy on the map, the motormouthed emcee shared Loyalty Over Love, his debut solo full-length mixtape, in Summer 2018. Stuffed with glistening Dirty South instrumentals, Loyalty Over Love is the culmination of Peezy’s rise, with 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 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,” mourning lost friends in “My Dawg,” recently given the music video treatment to the tune of 223k views on YouTube, 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 via Sick Wid It Records/300 Ent. Earlier this summer, Peezy treated fans to another revealing glimpse when he shared Behind The Title: Loyalty Over Love, a FADER-premiered mini-doc that explains the main themes behind the album.
