Following the release of his first video/single “Repent”, new Interscope artist Markie, has released another single called “Ugly Places”. This single will also be featured on his upcoming album. Check out the song below. A 19-year-old rapper with a lifetime of stories to tell, Markie hails from the East End of Louisville, Kentucky—a place that inevitably pours into each song he creates. “Where I come from is the gutter, it’s the trenches,” says Markie. “People have their ideas of what life is like in Louisville, so I wanted to use my music to tell them what’s really going on.” Markie’s forthcoming debut project brings his magnetic charisma and melodic flow to that purposely unfiltered truth-telling.
Markie first discovered his gift with words as a little kid, finding early recognition by winning third place in a statewide short-story contest in sixth grade. Naming Lil Wayne and Boosie Badazz among his longtime influences, he got his start in music at age 18, teaming up with his cousin and recording his first song in a closet studio. He soon caught the ear of local producers, who offered him free studio time at a recording spot in his neighborhood. Before he’d even released any of his songs, Markie landed a management deal and quickly drew the attention of Interscope Records, who signed him in early 2019.

“His voice is so modular and shifty that the betrayal feels lived through” ~ Pitchfork
“OMB Peezy, from Mobile, Ala., but living in Sacramento now, is tough but melodic, with a youthfully urgent voice and production that’s indebted to Louisiana and California.” ~ New York Times
OMB Peezy releases telling single “Struggle” featuring Southern rap icon, Boosie Badazz. The comparisons between OMB Peezy and Boosie have been obvious since Peezy’s 2017 emergence onto the music scene. Never the one to shy from paying homage to rap legends that came before him, the Boosie collaboration shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans as Peezy is signed to E-40’s Sick Wid It Records. Gearing up for the highly anticipated release of his new mixtape, “Struggle” follows Peezy’s latest release “No Keys” featuring G-Eazy. “You don’t feel my struggle, so you don’t feel my hustle,” Peezy raps. Both emcees’ pinched lyrical delivery beautifully mesh throughout the production’s low synths. Their undeniable ability of storytelling is the collaborative rap hip-hop needs at the start of 2019. Take a watch and listen to OMB Peezy’s “Struggle” featuring Boosie Badazz and look out for Peezy’s new mixtape coming soon.
