OhGeesy Interview: West Coast phenom finds solace in solo stardom

As one of LA’s most beloved rising stars, OhGeesy has quickly become a staple of Cali’s signature sound.

The former Shoreline Mafia member has definitely seen his fair share of stardom, however — in preparation for his debut solo album GEEZYWORLD — OhGeesy strives to ascend to a whole other level on his own.

Taking his place as of our generation’s most influential Latino rappers, OhGeesy not only speaks on the crucial lifestyle changes he’s made for the better, but also overcoming writer’s block during the pandemic — striving to make his solo debut as perfect as possible.

Positioning himself to take over, OhGeesy has always pulled his own weight — standing out amongst the crowd with his enigmatic creative process and refined ear for beats. His latest single “Big Bad Wolf” with YG reasserts Geesy’s presence as one of the best bar-for-bar lyricists from the City of Angels.

Revealing the inner workings of his music, OhGeesy also discussed the major influences that have impacted his overall sound and artistic direction — earning his flowers for any conversation about West Coast hip-hop.

Now, he’s setting his sights on sweeping the charts — taking his seat at the table as one of the next cultural leaders in music.

While OhGeesy prepares to release his upcoming solo album GEEZYWORLD this weekend, OGM host Hakeem Rowe caught up with the West Coast phenom, speaking on his impending debut, OTX, his affiliation with Drake and OVO, Future, YG, BAPE and more!
