    I am so sicl of this shit. People cussing lil wayne and drake? STOP THAT SHIT. Sure Eminem and Jay r WAY better, but wayne nd drake r ill 2. And its tru hip hop aint what it used to be, but things change. This shit sounds like its gonna be a great album, and if it sells, great; if not, i dnt give a flyin fuck, cuz its still dope. If it aint dope, which \i highly doubt, its still got a couple Em bits in there...and they cant all be as crap as throw it up can they? oh and PS for all u haters sayin ems verse was whack in throw it up, HE WAS PLAYIN NICE SO YELAWOLF could gt he credit cuz its HIS song. We all kno Em coulda KILLED dat shit, and OWNED motherfuckers, but didnt cuz he chose not to. Im out.

  • Anonymous

    If that Eminem Collab aint the shit i will not even consider buying that album... It better be some shit like Go To Sleep. and it better not be like the track with gangsta boo on yelawolfs album cuz that shit was wack!!

    • fjdkal;

      Yo I'm 95% sure it's gonna be about their dicks (judging by a tweet from Obie)... get it? Dick is short for Richard. So I feel like we're either gonna hear '02-'03 jokey Em/Obie....or we're gonna hear a type of story track about some guy named Richard. Anyways, Obie's album is still gonna be good, why not buy it anyways? That Lebron On track sounds crazy. And Battle Cry is the shit.

  • Rocco

    Why delay it? Shit aint gon sell no matter when it come out.

    • realrap

      You need to pay the first solo african to go platinum from the D some respect! Cheers is crazy. SROM was so dirty lyrically as well. I personally havnt liked anything since but will give the cd a listen as he is 2/2 wit CDS

    "Obie Trice has revealed that his upcoming album Bottoms Up will include at least two songs that feature Eminem." I see only 1 eminem feature whats up with that.. What happened to No Turning Back?

  • jaceshadoe

    Hope Obie still has it...........been awhile. When i heard "second rounds on me" , i thought that in 2006 Obie was better then Eminem himself. Love that album. Not many collabs but Obie is missing a few key players.............. 1. Trick Trick 2. Akon , Akon and Obie make dope tracks together 3. Royce da 5'9 4. D12, D12 putted Obie in the majors

  • Nico 3

    Subtract the cost of making the album, touring, and transportation to get to all of these little smoky clubs that probably hold 75 people, and Trice will be lucky to afford a happy meal at a Detroit Mcdonalds.

  • Anonymous

    Eminem. Jay. Drake. Wayne. Kanye all dent the charts. Young Jeezy is denting the charts, not in a major way, but still respectable. Trice will be lucky to do 100,000 in 6 months. It's so sad how broke he will be.

    • Anonymous

      how broke?? lool nigga u dnt knw shit abt sales doin a 100k isn't broke wen u do it on ur own lable u dumbass nigga

    • hellno

      hey Ronnie Guess? calm down. The poster has the same opinions as you. He is simply saying it is very hard for someone like Obie Trice to dent the charts in this time of downloading and not buying music. He is backing this up by saying that the current biggest people in hip hop even are not selling that much so it is very hard for an independent artist like Obie Trice to sell a lot. He is saying how sad that is that people don't buy his music. He never said anything about the people selling more being better or that being the important thing. So please shut up. I hate people like you, even though i have the same opinions as them. I hate how they always say hip hop is dead and hate on everyone who isn't their favorite artist. I don't like Wayne or Drake either, but everything has it's own lane. Please never speak again.

    • Ronnie Guess?

      dent the charts?? sad how broke he will be??? thats all that you look at huh?? money and chart possitions?? haaha your the reason hip hop is dead because thats what you think makes someone an emcee!!! how the fuck can you put drake and wayne in the same convo as someone like Obie trice? Obie trice is one of the illest emcees out!!! money and chart possitions has nothing to do with it!! wake up!!

    • Anonymous

      How broke he will be? He is releasing this independently.. If he sells 100,000 that is dope and very profitable for an independent release. Obie is also actively touring often, bets are that his bank account is pretty healthy.

    It's funny how this Nigga joined in in the beef wit ja rule and rapped about him falling off.but honestly id rather have ja rules career cause at least he had a run.this Nigga put out that first album which was solid but everything else is garbage.when u talk down on a mother fucker it goes to show u it gets you he needs em's white ass too get back on the radar .Fuck Nigga who needs a cracker to stay relevant.

  • Anonymous

    Thought he said 2+ Eminem features.. oh well. Anyway @ ppl saying this personand that person shoulda been in d12 when proof died... Eye-Kyu should have been the one to replace him (he was old member of D12, found on 313, It's Ok (both eminem songs) and the d12 song chance to advance, and maybe a couple others.

  • Hypestyle

    Hopefully urban radio will actually support this and play the single(s), especially Detroit radio. you barely hear local artists on a regular basis.

  • jerrycurt

    I just know this is going to be a really good album; similar to greatest story never told. Most of the albums by real lyricists that were going to be shelved and get released in their original form once the artists go independent end up being good. The industry is a joke and I just hope that people buy this/listen to it

    Fuck it... put Obie & Royce in D12.

    • Hip Hop Fan

      Amazing how many people I come across on this site who don't know what they're talking about. Fuzz Scoota is a known underground cat in the D. Eminem looked up to him in the early years. Phat Kat even accused Em of biting Fuzz's style on Dilla's "Welcome 2 Detroit."

    • Anonymous

      Fuzz Scoota used to be in D12. Haven't you heard 'No One's Iller'?

    • ItsTheTruth

      And remove On the real though, D12 fell the fuck off after they lost Proof. Now Swifty sounds like he just now finished puberty with his voice all deep and shit, and idk whats up with this new 'Fuzz Scoota' character. And The last vids that came from D12, Kon Artis wasnt even in the video and didnt even have a verse, he was probly out somewhere being Em's hype man. D12 will never be what they were 2001-2004. And Em doesn't seem like he would fit in with his crew anymore nowadays. Bottom line is it's 2012 now, and it's all about Slaughterhouse now. Shady 2.0

  • ItsTheTruth

    Rappers, take notes. 16 tracks, only 4 features, and 2 of them are probably just for hooks. Em is the only mainstream feature, and RIP to MC Breed. This is how you do it. You gonna get 99% Obie on this album, not a fucking collabo album with everyone that's currently hot at the moment. Obie always been underrated and under-appreciated but never switched his style or sold out. Gonna be a good year for hip hop, especially for Obie and DMX...Both of them haven't dropped a studio album in 6 years until now (not including special reserve). Definitely buying albums from both.

      Second Rounds On Me>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Cheers.... any day of the week. Obie's 2nd album sounded more like him and not an "Eminem-type album influence" like Cheers. Cheers was good, but Obie's 2nd LP. was a classic in my opinion.

      I dont have a problem with collabs. If i was a rapper my 2nd cd would be called sorry this ones for me and just be collabs and posse cuts with all my favorites..

    • casper21

      I liked Second Round better than cheers, lyrically he went in more, I liked the productions better, and fewer features

    • Ano.. u kno the rest

      Special Reserve is his best one yet.

      he murdered that album lyrically but eminem gave him some wack robotic production that fell really flat. em actually did a good job on the beats with cheers, best shit he ever did on the boards.

  • nullify

    Even tho im really not a fan of mainstream rap, ive got nothing but love for obie. Definitely gonna pick this up.

  • jt3000

    Really I think when proof died it would have been a no brainer for obie to replace him in D12. Proof loved obie like a brother and it would have made him proud and not to mention it would have gave the group more star power besides em. I think D12 would still be as popular as they were without going outside of the shady family looking for talent.

    • jfkdla;

      Proof and Obie were also cousins through marriage, I think Proof married one of Obie's second or third cousins. But Fuzz was there originally, he was in D12 in around 1997. But yeah, even though I'm sure Proof would be happy to see someone they were beefing with is cool with them again, I think Obie would have been the more sensible choice. Obie and D12 have such chemistry, I mean just look at "Outro" on Cheers.

    i think Em should bring everyone back to Shady along.can you imagine?:Bad Meets Evil,D12,Yelawolf,Ca$his,StatQuo,Slaughterhouse,BobbyCreekwater,ObieTrice,50,lloyd banks.+what ever new talent he might find?epic

Cheers Was Classic Shit Second ROund was Mediocre at Best. Royce is prolly the hardest on shady these days. Him an Ems Chemistry is unbelievable and them Two need another album Soon


      Lol another hating ass nigga. U aint given 2.0 a chance.. All they done was mixtapes wich by the way are far from wack.. Wait til the album drops this year. As for yela well yeah he may hav flopped but theirs no denying his talent. Say what u say, Ob is dope but better than eminem? NOPe. compare both skill (lyrics) and numbers(album sales) and thr u have it

      eminem replaced obie with yelawolf and yelawolf flopped like a fish outta water. eminem is a heartless bitch that does whatever paul and jimmy tell him to do, he's the biggest rapper in the world and he can hardly dress himself. sober em is a very weak person, physically, and mentally. obie has more talent than everyone currently on shady and its not even close. every member in slaughterhouse is a failed solo artist that fell on hard times after dropping suck albums nobody bought. cashis is the epitome of a industry bum. stuck in the same spot he started with no fans and no music of note. shady records 2.0 has been a massive failure. they're dropping wack records and they aren't selling to expectations. would you rather drop good music that doesn't sell or wack music that doesn't sell? yelawolf = wack music that doesn't sell

    Obie what the fuck happened to No Turning Back I was really lookin forward to hearin that then again let's not jump the gun could be a bonus. I've liked Trice since I first heard him on Lanterns mixtape it's a damn shame he left Shady but that's politics for you we all know what Jimmy says they do at the end of the day Iovine is the boss.

  • y5

    got you first day obie. been waiting a long time on this one. obie is one of the most underrated emcees of all time. eminems corn ball fans bought his first shit cuz they thought it was their duty as shady slurpers. are they gonna cop this one? prolly not. bandwagon homos that jock eminem exclusively make me sick. i'll take a new obie record over a new em record any day of the week. em fell off and has every outlet and all the resources and still drops disposable pop trash. obie is in his prime and has to do it for dolo. been through hell gettin this shit out, he deserves my dollars.

    • fjdkal;

      I became a fan of Obie through Em, I think that's what Em wanted to happen when he signed gain fans for Obie because of how they're associated...not sure, though (yes that's sarcasm).

    • BW

      so em fans that bought his first album because em was on it are corn ball fans? thats why i bought it and became an obie fan from that cd. i picked up 2nd round and have been waiting for this one for years. whether em is on it or not makes no difference to me. i totally agree obie is more talented and has more to offer than just about anyone in the shady 2.0 camp.

      It sure ain't Biggie... the baby on the cover was a nobody in "Hip-Hop" and still is (can't remember dudes name 4 real) and no-disrepect to the dude. His parents at the time got about $60 for the pic LOL. Gotta love Obie! He ain't changed much.

      Dude Obie got shot years ago, it has nothing to do with his album being delayed. He had his album ready but I guess he kept changing his mind on certain things and recorded new stuff so it kept getting pushed back. Im looking forward to this album cause Obie is actually a dope rapper with or without Eminem

    • Overd0s

      Second Rounds On Me was post the shooting, Obie Trice made a song called "They wanna kill me" 24 hours after the shooting. On Cry Now's music video it shows the x rays of the shooting too. So he hasn't been off the map b/c of that. He's been trying to get his own label up, signing artists and honestly most of his new stuff is either reworked unreleased tracks or some kind of wack un-obie trice type music, but i hope this new album will be a back to the old for him. Cheers and Second Round's On Me are two of my favorite Shady Albums

      are you serious??? dude got shot in the head.. hes just now getting back to be 100%... no bullshit, google obie trice shot in the head... he is lucky as hell to have made it alive.. methinks this album will have some deep introspective shit, and some strait up fire spittin songs like the obie of old.. im expecting big things from the big home obie one kenobi..

(Obie just recovered from getting shot, Royce was beefing with Em/D12) * Hopefully his album has collabs with artists from the D: Elzhi, Royce, Trick Trick

  • Lincoln Baker

    I always liked Obie. Wasn't too happy when I heard he got dropped out of Shady/Aftermath. I always wanted to see some kind of a group album from Obie, Young Buck, and Game. All of them were one time BIG artists on Shady/Aftermath, who for one reason or another got dropped. Always thought it would be BAD ASS to get an album with just them three dropping verses.
