Obie Trice and Swifty McVay Australian Tour 2013 photos
I’ve been a fan of Obie Trice since his head popped up on Eminem’s ‘Without Me’ film clip, long before I started taking photos for musicians. I sat there, 17 years old and asked myself who is that guy? Then ‘Got Some Teeth’ came out and I transformed from a curious listener to a fan. Now when I listen to his debut album, ‘Cheers’, ‘Got Some Teeth’ doesn’t rank at all. Other tracks stomp all over it like ‘Average Man’, ‘Shit Hits The Fan’, and ‘Follow My Life’. Following that, ‘Second Round’s On Me’ came out with my favourite Obie Trice track, ‘Cry Now’, and also had that song you probably heard on HBO’s Entourage, ‘Wanna Know’. Then his music got super raw – ‘Special Reserve’ was a brand new face of Obie Trice, with the introductory track, ‘Welcome’, containing more rage and hunger than both of his previous albums combined.
Obie Trice played one of his new tracks off the upcoming album, ‘The Hangover’ which is due for release next month. And that track looks like it could become my new favourite. And Obie – thanks for sharing your Cognac with us.
