Obie Trice

Obie Trice is an African American rapper born in Detroit, Michigan on November 14, 1977 to a single mother; Eleanor Trice. On October 5, 1998 he became the father of his only daughter, Kobie. He began rapping at the age of 11 and had a number of underground hits such as "Respect", "My Club", "Dope Jobs Homeless", and "The Well Known Asshole" before he signed to Shady Records in 2000.

As an acquaintance of D12 member Bizarre, Obie was signed after a personal introduction to Eminem allowed him to impress the Detroit rap legend in-person. His one-line opener ("Obie Trice: Real name, no gimmicks" - which is also on Obie and Busta Rhymes song "Oh!") on Eminem's lead single; "Without Me", off his well-reviewed The Eminem Show album gave Obie his first international media exposure, and increased public awareness of his name and slogan. Appearances on DJ Green Lantern's official Shady Records Invasion mixtape series, allowed him to further his public recognition.

A short while before the first Invasion mixtape was released, he became involved in the Eminem-Benzino beef after being called out by Benzino with the line "Obie Trice/You's a buster" in a dis track directed at Eminem and Shady Records. In response to Benzino, Obie released the track "Welcome to Detroit City" on the first Invasion mixtape. He also joined his label-mates in the highly publicised Ja Rule-50 Cent beef but never received a direct response from Ja Rule.

His debut album Cheers was released on September 23, 2003 with its first single "Got Some Teeth" being well received on radio in a number of countries. He also released the songs "Don't Come Down" and "The Set Up". The album consists of 17 tracks with production from Eminem, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Mike Elizondo, Emile, Fredwreck and Denaun Porter. Artists featuring on Cheers include Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg and D12 among others. The album was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA.

As of 2005 he has begun work on his second album, entitled 2nd Rounds On Me, which is expected later this year. It features a lineup chiefly comprised of local Detroit rappers and a decreased presence from Eminem and other Shady/Aftermath artists. Obie Trice has many hot tracks such as "Stay Bout It feat. Stat Quo, Came Up feat. 50 Cent & Stat Quo, I'm A Hustler feat. 50 Cent, Gone feat. Eminem and many more.
