Bottom's Up

Bottom's Up is the upcoming fourth studio album by hip hop artist Obie Trice, and is set to be released at 2010. The album was originally to be released under Shady Records and Interscope Records with a hopeful Summer 2008 release date, but in June 2008 Trice departed from the label. In October 2009, the album was confirmed to be released under Trice's own label, Black Market Ent. in 2010.


The title of the album, Bottom's Up, was chosen as Obie Trice was keen to keep the alcohol related theme for his album titles.[1] He had begun working on the album whilst in the process of releasing his second album, Second Round's on Me.[2] As of 21 May 2007, Obie Trice told MTV that he was at the time "a few songs deep", and had by that point collaborated with just Daz Dillinger. He also stated that he'd like to get work done with Eminem, 50 Cent, Young Buck, Akon, Cashis, Jazze Pha, and Devin the Dude. On the topic of collaborating, Obie Trice also explained to MTV,

I don't really know a lot of artists — I'm in Detroit. It's not Atlanta, where everybody is everywhere, or L.A. or somewhere like that. I actually think it's time for me to start branching off and start connecting with cats. Getting my collaboration on and working with some hot producers — unknown and known — and just make them joints that feel good and that are radio. I just want to make that transition.[3]

But in July, XXL displayed in an Obie Trice interview that Obie said he would not to compromise his integrity. He also said that he felt he was near to being finished, and has worked with producers such as South Carolina's Propane the Great (who did his single “Detroit Summer”), Detroit's Square Biz, and Six - all of which he stated as being "unknown producers, but the shit is fire."[4]

Obie had also mentioned in another interview that he does have beats from Dr. Dre, which he received during Second Round's on Me, but decided to keep them for Bottom's Up.[5] He has also stated at various times that he'd like to release the album in the summer of 2008,[4][6] and further elaborated on this thought by saying,

I would like to have a summertime album because both of my [previous] albums were in the winter [or] fall. I think these tracks I’m picking are more fun, summer type of joints. I [don’t] want to wait so long to put out an album. It took three years to put out Second Round’s on Me [after] Cheers. I think that’s too long.[4]

In June 2008, Obie Trice departed from Shady Records. It is not clear what affect this would have on the album, if any.[7]

In September 2008 in an interview with Detroit's FM98 WJLB, Obie said he expected the album would be released in February 2009, under his new label Black Market Ent.[8]

Guest appearances may include Eminem and/or D12, Carl Thomas, Bun B, Jamelia and Black Market Ent. artists such as Tuki. Production may come from K.I.D.D., Dame Grease, Emile, Rezza Brothers and Black Milk.
