In May 2013, it was reported that Olamide had signed a record deal with DB Records. Olamide took to Twitter to debunk the reports. In an interview with Toolz on NdaniTV’s The Juice, he said that it was “too late” for anyone to sign him.

On 14 November 2014, Olamide released his fourth album Street OT through YBNL Nation.

Its production was handled by Pheelz, B-Banks, and Young Jonn. The ideology of the title of the album is to glorify and show his love for the “streets,” a word with which Olamide is synonymous.

Olamide collaborated with Phyno in 2015 to release 2 Kings. It was released through Cloud 9 and the iTunes Store with a little announcement on 1 April 2015 by Penthauze Music and YBNL Nation.

Before recording the album, Olamide and Phyno frequently collaborated on several songs, including “Ghost Mode” and “Dope Money.” The album produced the singles “Une” and “Confam Ni,” both of which were released in the months leading to the album’s release.

Olamide’s fifth studio album Eyan Mayweather was released on 23 November 2015. Released through YBNL Nation with studio production from Pheelz, Young Jonn, B Banks, and I.D. Cabasa, Eyan Mayweather is the follow-up to 2 Kings, a collaborative album by Olamide and Phyno. The album boasted of having 21 tracks with no single feature.

The Glory, Olamide’s sixth studio album, was released on December 23, 2016. It was released through YBNL Nation with studio production from Pheelz. The Album contains 16 back-to-back tracks with features from artists like Phyno, Wande Coal, Burna Boy, Akuchi, and Davolee. The Glory is the follow-up to Eyan Mayweather. 

Olamide revealed to the public on 18 February 2020 that his record label, YBNL Nation, has signed a joint venture deal with an international distribution company Empire.

He further stated that Fireboy DML and any new artist signed to YBNL Nation will join him to benefit from the deal. Olamide’s eleventh album Carpe Diem was released on 8 October 2020. Carpe Diem contains 12 tracks and features Omah Lay, Fireboy DML, Peruzzi, Bad Boy Timz, Bella Shmurda, and Phyno, with production credits to Young John, Pheelz, P.Priime, ID Cabasa and VStix.

Olamide announced in March 2021 that he was done working on another album. On 18 April, he announced the album UY Scuti, which was released on 18 June. Olamide mentioned that his son was the inspiration for why he titled the album UY Scuti. On 5 February 2022, Olamide hinted at retirement after the release of his 12th studio album.
