The preacher to the streets reflects for Fine Tuned.
Shot at NYC’s Audiomack Studios, Fine Tuned is a live performance series that pairs artists with a live instrumentalist for an intimate rendition of their biggest hits.
Born in Alabama and raised in the Bay, OMB Peezy strikes the perfect combination of Southern drawl and West Coast bounce. The rapper is only 21 years old, yet packs a lifetime’s worth of street wisdom into his music, which balances the vivid storytelling of a life of struggle with the introspection and knowledge resulting from that pain and hardship.
“Try So Hard” is a reflective, piano-led standout track from Peezy’s latest project, Preacher to the Streets, released earlier this year. In other words, it’s a natural fit for Fine Tuned, where pianist Matt Composure brings emotional weight to the song’s themes of attempting to remove yourself from a precarious lifestyle.
