Billy Johnson Jr. of Launch.com sat down with recently to talk about his debut album ‘Cheers’. Asked about how he managed to hook up with a white rapper like , Obie admitted, “I’m from the hood, and I ain’t never really seen no white people. That’s just the bottom line. So when I got there, I really didn’t know how to connect.” As for his impression of Slim, Obie explained, “I took his first album to the hood and he was just brilliant to me. And I thought, ‘I can really do this sh**. If he can do it, I can do it.’ The first time I heard the first album, it was the dopest thing that had happened in a long time. And I took it to my neighborhood and dudes were not trying to hear that sh**. I literally had to make my homeboys listen to that sh**. Listen to what he said. Listen to his wordplay. Listen to his delivery. Dude was like, ‘Get that white-boy sh** out of here.’ And then ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’–boom! That’s when people like, ‘Obie, be bring that sh** around here forever.’ That inspired me to keep it moving.”
