Obie Trice Speaks About Bottoms Up, His New Label, And Living With A Bullet In His Head
Obie Trice’s six-year hiatus from the game hasn’t been in vain. With his new album Bottoms Upfinally released and the launch of his record label Black Market Entertainment (BME), Obie Trice is back to let people know that his return is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Right before the release of Bottoms Up, KN.com got an exclusive interview with Obie to discuss his return to the general public, his life after Shady Records, and his plans one day recording a collaboration album with Eminem. Uptown Bobby: With Bottoms up coming out and this being your first album in six years, what was your thought process during this album? Obie Trice: Really, just to get another body of work out there (Laughs). There’s just been such a long hiatus from me that I felt like I needed some more music out. I’m just excited to have this on my own imprint (BME) and me executive producing my own record, it’s refreshing. Those two things are what had me real enthusiastic about making this album. Uptown Bobby: You just mentioned your label, Black Market Entertainment so I want to know are there currently any artists other than yourself signed to the label? Obie Trice: Well, it’s a fairly new label. I just launched it in 2010. The focus of it right now was to getBottoms Up as a record Other than that, I’m the only artist at the moment. But we definitely are going to get things rolling and artists together. We’re moving forward with this thing.
