Album Review

Be it busting the Gucci heads for their lightweight threads ("Petty") or declaring his comeback over an Eminem beat ("Going No Where"), rapper Obie Trice never falters on Bottoms Up, his first release since leaving Em's major-label imprint, Shady. If it weren't for all the respectful "thanks to my Shady family" talk during the Dr. Dre-produced intro, you'd never know he was off the label, as this long-delayed effort retains the polish and punch of a major-label release, and with Eminem also offering a verse on the great stuttering and stopping reggae-hop track "Richard," it's like 2003 all over again. Notice that the title is alcohol-themed too, but Obie himself has grown, and while he hasn't reached the ambitious point his Detroit brother Royce da 5'9" reached in 2012, he's mellowed when it matters, and offers some wisdom along with his "Detroit till I die" gangster stance. "Dear Lord, please forgive me/The more I live, the more I grow empty" is the kind of new Obie knowledge the man drops on "Dear Lord," while the word-filled "Ups and Downs" is an interesting cross between the Game's "16 Bars"-styled stream of consciousness and an alcoholic coming clean at an AA meeting with self-deprecation sliding into self-decimation. He's getting better with the hard truths, and with the hard ballin' still in check, Obie's independent life gets a fine kickoff here.

Obie Trice went from no one to someone in the rap world quickly when Eminem signed him to Shady Records and executive produced his debut. Born on the west side of Detroit in the Schoolcraft and Greenfield area, Trice began his rap career humbly. He dropped out of Cooley High School in the early '90s and began making ends meet, which wasn't too easy in the cold, abandoned streets of Detroit. His turning point came in 1998 with the birth of his daughter, Kobie. Shortly afterward, he took note of Eminem's...
