With Obie Trice’s new album ‘Second Round’s On Me’ featuring all-star cameos by Eminem, 50 Cent, Nate Dogg, Akon, and Jaguar White, Popworld asked if he hung out together with any of his collaborators. “Actually, no,” Trice responded. “They were just in town so I said, ‘Come to the fu**ing studio and give me some,’ just like that. Yeah, we hooked it up like that.” Asked if there was anyone else he’d really like to work with, the rapper replied, “Andre 3000 from Outkast. I think he’s dope.”
After being shot last New Year’s Eve and later dealing with the death of pal Proof of D12, Obie Trice has become a serious critic of violence on his new album ‘Second Round’s on Me’. “The violence is getting out of control,” he tells The New York Daily News. “It just makes you angry knowing that they can take your life for no reason. And the authorities are no help.”

MTV News reports that Obie Trice is at home recovering after being shot in the head in the early-morning hours on Saturday (December 31). His record label, Shady, released a statement Wednesday (January 4) saying that Trice — who was treated and released from the hospital on the same day he was shot — still has the bullet lodged in his skull. Doctors initially concluded that the bullet’s position made it too risky to operate upon and remove. In the coming days, they expect to determine whether it can be removed at a later time. Read more.

Before being discovered by Eminem, Obie Trice tells Mike Ross of the Edmonton Sun he spent most of his time hustling. “I was selling crack. I was selling drugs,” Obie said, clarifying what “hustling” meant. “You understand now? I was doing my thing. I was out there. So when Marshall was giving me the chance to do something that I love, it was a beautiful thing. That’s why I say [Eminem] saved my life.”
Obie Trice recently stopped by MuchMusic to promote his debut solo album ‘Cheers’ and was asked if he thought that gimmicks affect the way people hear music or take in the music. “I just feel like you should just do you,” Obie responded. “You know what I’m saying? No matter where you from, whatever your background is, if you came up in a wealthy family, talk that talk. Don’t say that you on a corner selling crack when you haven’t did that ’cause I’m– I don’t want to– I’m not going to respect you. You know what I mean? So I just feel like a person just needs to do you. You know, have fun with the music but do you. Don’t be something that you’re not.”
