Virginia native Fresh Porter has been making waves nationwide. Porter, who was only released from prison just a year ago, already has two projects under his belt and a number of notable co-signs.

His latest full-length release, OMDN, features Virginia Pusha T, and Trey Songz, as well as Kahri 1k, Young Crazy and 1017’s Pooh Shiesty. Produced by Yung Lan, Emkay, SayZay and Mow, OMDN is raw, catchy, high-energy music from the heart.

Porter’s project has been a long time coming. He grew up in the notorious city of Petersburg, half an hour south of Richmond. Moving fully into the streets after the passing of his grandmother in his youth, Fresh was indicted in 2016 on drug charges and incarcerated. Porter came home in 2020 to a different world. He explains the process of making OMDN and what the title means below.

OMDN is a acronym for on my dead niggas, which is slang in Petersburg verbatim to the phrase On God; we usually reference our dead homeboys to show sincerity and honesty. The concept for the album came about while I was serving my 4 year sentence in prison. During my bid, I lost three close friends and wanted to do something to honor them. That’s why you see their faces on the cover instead of mine. OMDN also introduces our culture to the world through my music.”
