Peez off

"Don't like the cards you was dealt, no givin' 'em back"

OMB Peezy - Venting Session
(From Loyalty Over Love album; 2018)

Grand mission statement to open OMB Peezy's debut album, eh? What a pity the LP takes a Sum 41 nosedive in quality after it. Granted, a couple of Loyalty Over Love's issues are personal gripes (he wants to be the new Kevin Gates; I want him to be the old Boosie with a soupcon of NorCal mobbishness), but the album's more general problems are genuine failings: gratuitous Auto-Tune smoothing out all Peezy's pan-regional rough edges, not enough trademark Sick Wid It slap in the production, and none of his best songs are present. How you gonna call your album Loyalty Over Love and then not even put the title track on there?

"Put a tag on your head like a cow"

OMB Peezy - Loyalty Over Love (Intro)
(From t'internet; 2017)

In hindsight, it was obvious Peezy's album would turn out be a bodge-job from the moment Lay Down and When I Was Down were remixed for their official release on 300 Entertainment. Overkill Peezy? More like awful A&Ring killed Peezy amirite.

Been too busy listening to "Devilz Rejectz 3" to check this.

Crazy how E-40 the worst A&R in rap

... and speaking of songs ruined for commercial release, fuck that shitty remixed version of Tay-K's After You.

Just listened. Song with Mozzy is okay too.
