It's hard for any artist to make a name for themselves in the oftentimes fickle music industry, and the odds become even graver when you enter the hip-hop realm. For 300's own OMB Peezy, the road to becoming one of the more promising emcees to rise out of Mobile, Alabama and later Sacramento, California has been one of major perseverance that he talks in detail about on his new single "Let Up."
The song's title is derived from the proverbial idea of having your foot on someone's neck and not letting up in the least bit. In this case, Peezy applies it to his idea of finally making moves in the rap game and not allowing anything to stop him from rising — it's a sentiment that applies to fake love from old friends and haters alike. Even with a beat that makes you want bop your head, the lyricism gives it all a much deeper meaning. Major props, Peez.
Listen to "Let Up" by OMB Peezy right now below and wherever you stream your tunes:
Can't even call up my homies
Feel like I'm all on my lonely
Keep that fake love; I don't want it
Look at everybody as opponents
Look at me grandma, I made it
Mama, look at your baby
They gave me a chance, I had to take it
Put it on my plate and I ate it
