About OMB Bloodbath:
While 2020 was a wild ride for everyone, it was Houston’s own OMB Bloodbath’s pivotal year. The release of “Dropout” with fellow Houston star Maxo Kream fanned the flames for what was to come, as the song cracked the million mark in no time on YouTube. Her hustle paid off, when Blood secured a deal with 10:22 PM and Love Renaissance (LVRN), in partnership with Interscope Records. Raised in H-Town’s Third Ward, Blood has a long history in music, from loving it to later making it. Starting with poems that transformed into rhymes, Blood pounded the pavement, dropping mixtapes like Escape From Section 8 and her Nothing But The Moon series. Her record deal was monumental, as she was the first artist from the Third Ward since Beyoncé to sign a major label deal. With the release of her dynamite follow-up “Bolt,” Blood has already hit 300k in views, and keeps on climbing. With skill, talent, and will, OMB Bloodbath is here to tell real stories to real people.
