OMB Peezy delivers his highly-anticipated new project MisGuided today [via An Overkill Ent/ 300 Entertainment] for Gangsta Grillz’ latest installment hosted by DJ Drama. Including features from fellow heavy-weight artists, NLE Choppa, Morray, and G Herbo, Peezy rises to a pinnacle point with diamond-encrusted lyrical flexes and storytelling that certifies his artistic magnetic appeal. MisGuided is made available to stream on all music service platforms.
“I came up with this title thinking about my childhood and the things I used to see as a kid. I saw things dat I didn’t know were wrong until later on in life. Things that the older people around me made seem cool or ‘The way of life’ as I always looked at it. Dat made me realize dat I’m not the only kid who went through this, it’s kids goin’ through this right now and don’t even kno. I just want to show them that they are being misguided before it’s too late.”
– OMB Peezy
The sixteen-track mixtape is the product of the prodigious rising Rap star whose natural talent as an artist has thrived from self-growth, being a father, and in-studio collaborations with elite producers Murda Beatz (Drake, Gucci Mane), Hitmaka (Lil Wayne, Chris Brown), HicksMadeThat (Young Boy Never Broke, Yung Bleu) and more. In addition to the project acclaimed track, “Mufasa” featuring G Herbo, released earlier his year, MisGuided features an array of tracks that magnify the lack of education OG’s passed down to the youth as Peezy takes complete charge to end the cycle speaking from a newly adapted perspective from being a father. Peezy paints a vivid picture of the pain and struggle he’s faced leading to this point; however, in the end, proves that all trials eventually lead to triumphs. The project comes to a cinematic end with a triumphant, base-knocking outro reminiscent of nostalgic Rap splendor made to inspire and evoke the energy of the streets to the global masses. OMB Peezy turns a new page as once being MisGuided to standing tall masterfully in his craft and the man he’s become today.
Slated to take his victory lap on the heels of his latest release, the Mobile, Alabama native prepares for this tour with Kevin Gates via ‘Big Lyfe’ tour kicking off on 8/23/22. For additional tour information, visit: https://www.kvngates.com/tour

About OMB PEEZY:
Born in the buckle of the Bible Belt — Mobile, Alabama native OMB Peezy has had his fair share of hardships. However, rather than fall victim to faux parables, OMB Peezy created his own lane to hip-hop stardom by talking about the only thing that matters—the truth. Yet, like any great prophet, Peezy used these struggles to guide him. When he was 12, his mother picked up and moved their life across the country to Sacramento, California. Instead of hiding his pain, he stayed connected to his Alabama roots and let the trauma fuel his music. In fact, it was that traumatic move and introspective approach to his music that would lead him to catch the attention of one of hip-hop’s legends, E-40, and ink his first record deal. When asked what led to his initial connection with E-40, Peezy highlights that it was his ability to dig deep into himself lyrically so that his rhymes humanize those who think like him. “He liked how I was telling my story. How I was narrating my life,” Peezy said in regard to E-40. “Anyone can talk about killing. He liked that I would talk about what led me to do those bad things.”
Peezy would then go on to grab the world’s attention. After releasing his breakthrough single, “Lay Down,” in 2016, he signed with 300 Entertainment to drop his debut EP, Humble Beginnings. Standout tracks like “Doin Bad” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again laid the foundation for Peezy to showcase his hustle. He followed up Humble Beginnings with the Sherwood Marty collaborative mixtape, Young & Reckless, before dropping the aptly titled tape, Preacher to the Streets, in 2018. Preacher to the Streets took OMB Peezy’s career to new heights. The acclaimed project was an accumulation of Peezy’s talent and the respect he had generated. This admiration was displayed by the project’s star-studded appearances which included Boosie Badazz, T.I., Lil Durk, G-Eazy, and more.
In 2020 Peezy would then go on to release his mixtape, In The Meantime, which housed fan-favorite “Sleep At Night”. Released at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the mixtape was music for fans to listen to “in the meantime” while he continued to work on what would become his debut album Too Deep For Tears. The album would also include a remix to his viral single “Big Homie”, with the original amassing over 31 million views, Peezy would then tap Sniper Gang’s Jackboy and the late King Von for the album cut. Too Deep For Tears also features Blac Youngsta, Jacquees, and Rylo Rodriguez and continues Peezy’s realistic outlook on life. Not only does he grieve the death of his former label situation, but the rapper also deals with the loss of his grandmother throughout the album and the perils of the justice system.
“My cousin Timothy Milton. … They gave him 99 years for a robbery,” Peezy said when explaining his album’s title. “From the outside looking in, I’m like ‘Damn, 99 years for a robbery?’ But on the inside looking out, he’s like ‘It’s my fault.’ … He was like ‘Shit, it’s too deep for tears.’”
In rap, being revered and being a legend are two different things. Being revered in hip-hop can be a short-lived experience. People admire your ascension, loathe your reign, and applaud your fall. En route to gaining the quick flame of fame, one might have to compromise themselves and their story to be accepted. Yet, OMB Peezy was able to evade these hoops and hurdles by simply relying on the truth. By recalling his life like The Gospel, Pastor P (as he’s known on social media) has become a pillar in Alabama’s bubbling hip-hop scene. He’s also blazed a trail from Mobile to Sacramento that will allow him to speak life to stories outside of music while becoming the legend he’s destined to be. And unlike the fast feeling of being revered, to be a legend in hip-hop is to have an everlasting life.
