Obie Trice is back and he’s working with a familiar collaborator.

O. Trice confirmed to XXLMag.com that Eminem will be featured on at least two songs off of his upcoming Bottoms Up album, which will hit stores in January 2012 on his own Black Market Entertainment label.

“It could be more [than two Eminem-featured songs],” Trice told XXL on Tuesday, the same day his first single, “Battle Cry” hit iTunes.

One of the features is titled, “No Turning Back,” and according to Obie, Eminem and Dr. Dre also have production credits on his album, proving that there’s plenty of love between Em and his former Shady Records signee.

Having recorded songs with Em in the past, Obie knows they form a great one-two punch for Detroit. Just like another Motor City team– Eminem and Royce da 5’9.

“I think they’re making a great duo together,” said Trice, speaking on Em and Royce’s Hell: The Sequel EP which dropped in June. “The chemistry between Royce and Em is dope.”

And Obie's take on his own Bottoms Up LP?

"I think it’s a great album," he said. "I'm older, I'm real excited."

We'll drink to that. –Mark Lelinwalla
