Obie Trice
Second Round’s On Me

Obie.jpgThey say whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So maybe Obie Trice should thank the bullet lodged in his head. This past New Year’s Eve, the Detroit MC got caught in the crosshairs of the escalating gun violence that has claimed the lives of three prominent local rappers in less than two years (including his label mate Proof). Based on the Motor City’s rising death toll, Obie’s narrow escape makes him one of the lucky ones. With a constant reminder of his mortality stuck in his skull, Obie seems determined to make the most of his second chance at life by putting the D’s strife into song on his sophomore effort, Second Round’s on Me.

While Obie’s 2003 debut, Cheers, was filled with lyrical prowess, its potential was overshadowed by the cartoonish lead single “Got Some Teeth,” which sounded like a Slim Shady outtake. He’s obviously learned from that mistake. Mr. Mathers doesn’t serve as an overbearing presence here, but rather as a worthy copilot through Obie’s bleak oratories of Detroit’s streets. On the Eminem-produced “Violent,” O. Trice sets the dark tone for the album, rhyming, “Hat match the jacket/Jacket match the glove/Glove match the mack that sends niggas above.”

Often associated with a tinny, keyboard-heavy sound, Eminem’s expanded production palate helps his protégé find his swagger on the creepy thump “Kill Me a Mutha” and “Ballad of Obie,” where acoustic guitars, firecracker snares and soothing electric whispers are the sonic foundation. Trice’s superb attention to visual details and calculated rhyme structure serves as the perfect complement. With live drums, horn stabs and a soulful moan, the Sick Notes–produced “Cry Now” shows him at his most lyrically adept (“We cock our tools and shoot our own color/This ain’t Detroit Red, you won’t X me out Malcolm/My exodus would never be from a violent outcome/I turn exorcist on niggas with extra clips/Exit on my ethics is no longer present/ X-rays said I was this close to heaven”).

Second Round rises above being merely a show of complex wordplay. With producer Jonathan “JR” Rotem serving as the album’s other major collaborator, Obie is able to add historical context to his struggles. Backed by JR’s soulful horns and congas on the Trey Songz–featured “Mama,” O spits, “Been on that block from dusk ’til dawn/’Til that shit Whites brought to America’s gone.” The pair creates similar chemistry on the deeply personal “Obie Story,” as JR and Rigo “Riggs” Morales’ layered wall of sound shifts from somber to energetic and back again, depending on the subject matter (“Dad ain’t around/He left a nigga saggin’ in them Superman draws that one Saturday/Is it my fault, shit got dark?”).

Trice rarely struggles lyrically, but on the guitar-drenched “Ghetto” he spews elementary bars like, “I’m from where the diapers full of feces… Bodies lay in traffic, that’s right where the streets be.” Other infractions are the Mr. Lee–produced bounce track “Terrible” and Eminem’s faux-dancehall cut “Jamaican Girl,” which both sound completely out of place among the rest of the album’s darker material. Aside from these awkward broad strokes, Obie paints a memorable allegory of Detroit’s social woes and their affect on his own life. Filled with unflinching street tales and dense lyrical couplets, Second Round should be sipped slowly for full potency. No shots to the head necessary.—BRENDAN FREDERICK

    niggas betta wake on obie

  • Tru Wanksta

    Good cd but I’m sure it won’t have mainstream success

  • Black LONDON (With Half Nigerian Blood) Supporting Ghana in the World Cup

    Obie Trice >>>>>>> Yung JOC

  • hgrooves

    Finally he’s getting the respect that he deserves. hopefuly with good marketing he will sell at least at platinum status. GGGG-Unit!!

  • TrueOG

    Man this album isn’t gonna sell cuz there’s no Dr.DRE! Last album, about 250 000 of the fans bought the album for the dre produced and feature song, “Bodygaurd”. Rest of the album was black shady strugglin. He has talent, but he’s never been able to show case it commercially, and this album will falter without Dre’s production assitance.

  • INTERSCOPE JACKSON

    get em obie yeah

  • john cochran

    Obie can spit. Imma cop up and see whats good

  • huSTLe

    Dude gon’ do some #s. Obie just need to do hime and leave the gimmicky (is that a word?)first singles alone. Y the fuck is Black London dissin’ Yung Joc, comparing everybody 2 him and saying they better(greater>) than him? Did that nigga smash yo’ bitch r something? Get off his dick…

  • Loes

    Yo Obie is real hard wit his sh!t……Im really feelin this song SNITCH ft Akon this song is off the hook im from Queenz Ny and im a HipHop Head……Keep doin your thang Obie……..

  • Nick

    if u didnt know obie’s last album went platinum so it wasnt a faliure it just wasnt HUGE main stream

  • The ON1E

    Obie trice is a ho ass nilla, dude straight up robbed me man, fo real. Don’t buy his album, he criminal mayne

  • Hipjoint

    surprised XXL even have the album, cuz it hasn’t leaked yet. the date i’ve been told is June 20th 2006 in America and a day earlier on the 19th in the U.K. so i can’t wait for this. i think dre was too busy with busta and Bishop LAmont to contribute any beats to obie. he shud be alrite tho, cuz Eminem got the bass bros, kon artis, luis resto and 54 king if he needed the extra help.

  • I Am A Hater

    Obie can spit, i might pick this up when it comes out.

    this niggas no joke….lyrics is he thing……im cop this

  • Ian

    Last album went plat, but look at the other shady cd that dropped that year and you’ll see why people don’t remember Obie’s that much. Last time I checked a guy named 50 cent sold ten million that year. Obie won’t sell big b/c MTV banned snitch. He’s definately stepped his lyrical game up, I’ll get this when it drops and whoever said xxl shouldn’t have a copy b/c it hasn’t leaked no offense but you should have kept that to yourself. Record Labels send advanced copies to publications like xxl to review the album and let people know it’s comming, b/c some people buy albums based off of reviews. Look at the back issues and then look at album dates. Sometimes it doesn’t work, b/c of last minute changes. Look at the Massacre. When they reviewed it it had “Talkin’ About Me” on it, but it got cut from the album and held over for the soundtrack.

  • RICE

    I LIKE DA SONG WIT HIM AND AKON

  • http://www.myspace.com/pamento87 Dante

    Obie is real. The cover looks wack but just by reading the line from “Violence” i know the album is gonna be ill.

  • Scorpio

    I hate it when a reviewer disses an album for showing diversity, like that is a bad thing. People are multi-faceted. I am so tired of hearing a reviewer describe songs as being out of place with one theme, “which both sound completely out of place among the rest of the album’s darker material”. Maybe he needed those songs to lighten up an otherwise consistently dark piece of work. Sometimes I smack my bitch, some times I hug her. That’s range, not inconsistency. Who wants a album of nothing but party songs or dark pieces? That is what makes us human a RANGE of emotion, not the same ones over and over again. Free your mind.

  • http://www.betarecords.com/chillz Chillz

    Obie is Dope & i love is shit, jus hope he goes more than platinum this time around. Plus am doing work myself trying to hit da game so yah’ll can check me out on my website fa some hot upcoming tracks. http://www.betarecords.com/chillz. Labels & A&R’s gotta peep da authenticity of da bwoy..Jamaiaca’s finest….holla!

  • ReDiCuLouS

    Obie is tha illest on Shady/G-Unit/Aftermath/Interscope period. His flow is untouchable….his lyrics & vocab is educated…somthin’ that’s been missin’ in the game for a while…with all shit down south rap talkin’ bout money,cars,clothes, & hoes…theres more to life than that…not much, but there is more. Oh yeah, tell “evan”‘s ma to ~Holla~

  • RAMMY

    Eminem made the best decision by signing Obie Trice to his label.My man Obie has talent and puts out no bullshit, i think he’s better than 50 cent and im a big fan of him to. Obie is the one who should be getting the most fame. SHADY/AFTERMATH 4 LIFE

  • ?uest

    i must say, i agree with Scorpio
    Life After Death was a dark ablum but it had “Hypnotize” which is more like a light song. laught now, cry later or cry now, laught later. my point is we are made up of diff emotions and dat what makes us human

  • LoVr1 MC from serbia

    Alo bre obie je najjachi rapper na svetu kloshari glupi obie rules!!!!!!!!

  • white guy

    cheers was great and refreshing…i’m sure this will be the same…he got overshadowed by pop 50 cent in the past…maybe same thing will happen again maybe obie is not meant for the extreme fame which can be a good thing

    Obie is tallented,I mean da nigga can spit,but there’s always something that seems 2 lack on his records.Im dissappointed with record, I still prefer cheers & he shouldnt have included Adrenalin rush in this album!!

  • http://xxlmag.com E-man (South c)

    Like East Coast said,But be more careful when you are in DETROIT CITY.Dont go out like Proof

  • danny ocean

    word is now that the album is been pushed back to august sometime, that sucks cuz i;ve waitin’ on that cd for a minute, interscope r fucking up big time, stat shud’ve dropped last year and game shud of came out 6-6-06, “So in the mean time, if it is Jimmy Iovine time, give us a fuckin album man!

  • JP

    wheres the tracklisting?? I doubt they will release this cd in august. thats to much

  • Blaq Thought

    Obie Trice is a dope emcee. I think if this album is consistantly banging he will be able to shake being compared to D12 or Eminiem and be his own Detroit emcee.

  • ausSHADY

    This album will be dope, cant wait 4 it.
    SSSSSSHADY!

  • stat

    Obie? august 15? cmon man thats another 2 months how can you do this to your fans. if MTV accepted SNITCH it would have come out already but no they had to ban it

  • KMay

    Obie Trice’s Cheers was a great album which was way overshadowed by 50 Cents Get Rich or Die Trying. The difference between Obie and 50, is that 50 is slowly selling out day by day where as Obie is actually putting together good music. 50 Cent doesnt care no more. hes made millions and is now just putting music out for 13 year old girls. I like 50 but he needs to STOP writing music for top 40 fans and bring back his street mentality

  • santa

    yeah Obie has been my nig since cheers tha cat has alot of talent and balls I will definately kop the album but not because of XXL and they sorry ass reveiws, but because I know Obie will not let me down.And with that near miss I know he had a creative surge One love to Obie FROM RASKEL FROM THE WEST

  • santa

    OH YEAH REAL NAME NO GIMMICK. HA NO GIMMICK, NO GIMMICK, NO GIMMICK I respected Obie when he said that “real name no gimmick” that what rap needs right about now.

  • kevin

    it s comin on august 15

  • kevin

    they delayd the dam album agian the hell with interscope for what for some other wack rappers to release and dont sell shit and you konow can sell somthin

  • H-Dawg

    NICE! The review has sparked more interest for this album, which I didn’t think was possible. I wasn’t a fan of Snitch, but Cry Now is not bad at all and is rapidly growing on me. Though, it really PISSES me of that the album has been pushed back as far as it has. Interscope need to stop saring “hopeful” release dates, and give out more precise ones… atleast more regularly on their releases. Still looking forward to this, though.

    Props on the review!

  • Mikey

    I know this might sound bad, but Em signing 50 cud of back fired big time, cuz 50 gave em a chance to sit back and chill and be a producer. think a bout if em didn’t sign 50, then after 8 mile em wud of released a another classic and just carried on working with bass bros, obie and d12. no doubt, financially 50 was em and dres big sucess back in 2002-2004, but now all of g-unit music just sounds,feels and even tastes stale, and Em got too big for his boots, thinkng he was a experinced old producer and started producing for everyone, some of his beats are dope espeacially the ones co-produced by jeff bass & dre, but him on his own with luis resto they just sound flat and amatuer. he destroyed 2pac material. even tho some beats were dope like black cotton. my point is that 50 is flooding the game with shit can’t wait till he leaves shady/aftermath. Em just concentrate on the lyrics not the beats. i don’t care if this is the wrong thread to post my comment but i had to get it off my chest.

  • H-man

    I see alot of stupid comments on here. How about talking about the quality of the album instead of discussing 50 and Game.

    Cheers was a solid album througout. Lyrics and Production were top notch.

    This album shows progression, instead of a Cheers 2 which most people here want?! It’s called building a discography of diverse material.

    Em’s production falters at times, but the dude is trying and comes hard with some material. Obie is one of the most underated lyricists today. Take the album as it is and enjoy it, it is above average and a good prgression from Cheers. Darker and less Shadyesque.

  • agentWONE

    cheers was a album hot and so does 2nd round. dont sleep the “2nd round” bitches!!

  • Simeon Smashes Vick All Day

    I album is WAY tight. My favorite tracks are “Lay Down”, “Kill Me A Mutha” and I was suprised that EM did the beats. Tight beats. “Cry Now” is also a banger. Has a few sorry ass songs, but overall a very good album. Also, I was suprised Em did the beat for Jamiacan Girl, it sounds like a Timaland beat to me. 4.5 out of 5.

    You people have to realize that Obie is not part of G-Unit and has nothing to do with the 50 Cent / Game beef. By the way, both are dope rappers and there is no reason to choose sides. Just fucking enjoy the music they both make.

    Obie is one of the most underrated rappers of the past few years, the man rhymes tight.
