Obie Trice's new project "Special Reserve" hits stores today and the Detroit rapper is talking about the motivation behind dropping an album filled with a bunch of unreleased tracks. Obie treamed up with producer MoSS to get the most out of the songs, even saying it was MoSS's idea. "MoSS is doing his music thing, he's in Toronto and I'm in Detroit," Obie says. "And we never really, really, really talked about it. He had the idea to put [the unreleased tracks] out there and I thought it was good idea — and being the type of person that I am with my music, I'm real passionate about my music. I ain't the mixtape dude, I ain't the Internet dude. He felt like he wanted to do this, he was the producer and he's a great producer so I'm all for it."
Previously Obie tralked about the album being made up of pre-Shady Records material "Me and my man [MoSS] from Toronto, h*ll of a producer, we're putting the music out there that we did back in the day and just putting it out there, it's some old-school, new-school hip-hop sh*t," Obie told said. "When Bottom's Up comes out, then we'll talk about that Shady sh*t. This is some of the music that signed me to Eminem's label." Moss even said that the songs were all done a long time ago. "All of the songs were done between 1997 and 2000," MoSS added. "This is an album that we were getting ready right before Shady called Obie."
