For emcee Obie Trice, life has always revolved around music. Motivated by the sudden success of fellow Detroit native Eminem, eventually the two would cross paths after his music found its way to the D12 founder. From there he hit the ground running, landing a plug on D12's Devil's Night album with "Obie Trice" (intro) and features on the Eminem Show album ("Drips) and the 8 Mile soundtrack ("Love Me," "Adrenaline Rush," "Rap Name.")
In 2003 the world was his. Now signed to Shady Records, Eminem would serve as Executive-Producer for Trice's debut album Cheers, going platinum in the process.
After releasing a string of mixtapes and guest appearances, 2012 would see him formally return with a new track called "Bottoms Up," his first release off his own Black Market Entertainment label, boasting production from Dr. Dre and verses from Eminem for "Richard."
Now the vet pushes forward with his latest offering, The Hangover. Featuring appearances from Young Buck, Estelle and more, the August 7th release of his fourth studio album proves that Trice is still going strong.
