The second signee to Eminem's famous Shady Records, is no longer a member of the label. After eight years and two albums through Shady, Obie has left. Terry Wilson, Obie's long time manager, says “Obie and Shady were moving in different directions,” continuing, “But he still has a great relationship with Shady Records. He has some big plans for his World Wide Hustle label.”
Obie is currently working on his third album while he figures out his new label situation. Obie did release a track explaining why he left Shady Records called "The Giant" [listen here]. In the song he indicates his problem may have been with Interscope, Shady's parent label, saying "I murdered e’ything when I wore the Shady logo,” he spits after announcing there’s no more Shady. O is a mogul/Low on the totem pole ‘cause Interscope’s loco/Now I’m gettin’ mo’ dough.”
Obie's first album Cheers went platinum, but his second album Second Round's On Me didn't do too well. Obie's third album will follow the theme being called Bottoms Up.
