Obie Trice Preps First Album Since Leaving Shady Records

Obie Trice has linked up with Toronto producer MoSS (Ghostface, Game, Sean Price) to release a street album next month.

The disc, titled Special Reserve, will feature 11 tracks entirely produced by MoSS. It will be the first LP that the Detroit rapper has released since departing from Eminem’s Shady Records.

Obie left Em’s imprint back in 2008 due to creative differences. Under the label he put out two albums, 2003’s Cheers and 2006’s Second Round’s on Me.

Special Reserve is set to hit shelves on December 15 though MoSS’ own indie label, Mossappeal Music. —Max G

  • realBOSTON

    HOWEVER, he killed his career now. Guaranteed.

  • GIFT

    i MAYBE LATE AS HELL ON THIS ONE, BUT WHEN DID OBIE LEAVE? ANYBODY KNOW? HE WAS A BEAST LYRICALLY. NEVER GOT MUCH PUSH BEHIND HIM THOUGH.

    • jbird

      He got kicked for releasing a song called ‘Giant’. Check it out, he puts M on blast. Obie murked M on this track.

      • tyson mike

        he diddnt get kicked off and he released that after he left, theres no beef with him and em

  • AZ40

    good shit I been wonderin’ ’bout him, slept on but still got plat. plaque

  • Mutada/Mullah Atari

    Cant say Em aint do his part, nigga got his name mentioned at the top of one of Em’s most successful songs ever, not to mention 2 solo albums that had reasonably financed videos, decent bugets, Eminem production as well as the “stamp of approval” from the white boy. Sort of reminds me of Siegal, hope we don’t have any shots or cry baby stunts in the near future (although beans is justifiable)

      Not too bright are you..comparing Obie To Beans? Go listen to your Miley Cyrus records.

      • tyson mike

        he wasnt talking about there music he was talking about there situation.

      • Mutada/Mullah Atari

        Fuck out of here man. There are tons of parallels both were set up by superstar artists but failed to launch. Don’t get your panties in a bunch guy.

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Regardless of a recording deal I hope the man is physically well.

    This man is living with a shell in his head that can do harm @ any moment.

    • Mutada/Mullah Atari

      $YK for some reason I though he got grazed, did not know he had some fragments in his head. Its interesting that he has not tried to use his near death shooting to advance his career like certain other Shady Aftermath artists who may have been shot less than 9 times.

      • $ykotic/Don McCaine

        Yeah man. That incident is was made me dig in his catalog deeper.

        That cut he did w/Akon wasn’t bad either.

        Seems like them dudes have serious problems being associated with Mr Mathers…

  • P

    yea.. finally he’s dropping somethin :D

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    Get the fuck out of here with that retarded ass shit.D12 bums.Get your head checked.two of the members can hold their own with eminem as it is.kuniva and swifty are beasts.kon artis is decent along with the late proof.i put bizzarre last, not because of lyrical skill but because of the dumb shit he says.On the subject at hand,i didnt know he left but best of luck with the career off of shady records.obies first album was a banger the second one,not so much.obie was hard but inconsistent.hopefully there wasnt bad blood.

    • that nigga

      @ NAPTOWN, It seems your the only one who mentioned that D12 werent wack out of all the comments. Its agreed, them niggas is wack and how many niggas that commented own a CD of theres? At least I have one of Obie’s, 2 Of Em’s and NONE of wack D12. Get the fuck outta here. You must be from “The D”. Royce has and will KILL all of them Lyrically.

  • abdulnasir

    So it’s a general consensus, obie’s great! Agreed!

  • The Gutt

    I heard that he left because of interscope and it didn’t have anything to do witm Em.

  • Ralph Lauren

    Everything under Aftermath is falling, if not already broken. So many niggas have come and left, and shit never gets done. Dre better hurry up w/ that album. Only thing relevant on Shady/Aftermathis Em…50 is trying tho(BISD isn’t great…but it aint horrible either)

    AS far as this nigga goes, he was done when he released that 1st single. SHit was lame and that shit only works for the whiteboy. I know for a fact it wont sell, and doubt it will be that good.
