Detroit rapper Obie Trice is set to return with his first album since his departure from Shady Records in June 2008.
The upcoming street LP, titled Special Reserve, finds Obie collaborating with producer MoSS for the project’s entirety.
According to a press release from his camp:
Special Reserve is a departure from Obie’s typical sound, as a wide range of gritty audio mosaics are provided by MoSS, as he continues to not only raise his profile, but the bar he’s set from his previous work with Raekwon, Ghostface, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, AZ, Slum Village, Havoc, Kool G Rap, KRS-One/Buckshot etc. MoSS is also the first producer signed to the legendary DJ Premier’s “Works of Mart” production company.
Obie Trice’s Special Reserve has virtually no guest appearances, and is slated for release December 15.
The tracklist is as follows:
1 – Welcome
2 – Got Hungry
3 – You’ve Been Slain
4 – On & On
5 – I Am
6 – 4 Stories
7 – Roughnecks (ft. Deuce Wonder)
8 – Cool Cat
9 – What You Want
10 – Jack My D***
11 – Dope, Jobs, Homeless (Bonus Song)
