Obie Trice InterviewOriginally scheduled from Summer 2005, the album looks likely to see its release in ’06.

These are the transcripts of an interview with Obie Trice, conducted July 24th, 2005 on DJ Hyphen & J. Moore’s “Sunday Night Sound Session” on Seattle’s KUBE 93.3 FM.

MVRemix: How long have you been out here? A couple of days?

Obie Trice: Yeah, I’ve been here about two days. I went out to “Mr. Lucky’s” the first night then… Where’d we go last night? We went to “Down Under.”

MVRemix: I know there was a big bus accident. Were you involved with that in any way?

Obie Trice: That was my bus, but I just happened to catch a flight from Denver to Chicago. That’s my bus but I didn’t wanna ride that 17 hour ride on a bus so I flew. It’s just by the grace of God that I wasn’t on there. If more people were on it would have probably been a tragedy, you know what I’m sayin’? So it was not as packed. I took two other people with me to fly, so the bus wasn’t as packed as it would usually be. It’s just a blessing, and a blessing that nobody got killed. You know dude broke his neck, Alchemist, his ribs – he punctured his lung.

MVRemix: Big shouts to Alchemist, I really was looking forward to seeing him on stage but of course first and foremost health is the most important thing. Speakin’ of Alch[emist], does he have any production on your up and coming album “Second Round’s On Me”?

Obie Trice: Yeah, we did a couple of songs. He did a song that I did with Jaguar Wright. Doin’ with Al that’s the direction you gon’ go in, he been in the game for years. He is true Hip Hop; the definition of Hip Hop is Alchemist.

MVRemix: Is that kind of funny to you? Because I’m not trying to get into Alchemist’s business but I know he’s from a nice kind of area in L.A., but obviously he’s gotten the respect from everybody he’s worked with. But he just seems like a real dude, I met him once and he was a real cool dude, he just seems real.

Obie Trice: Yeah, Alchemist is just a regular person like me or you. We all just regular real cats and it’s just a occupation, you know what I’m sayin’? So we just tryin’ to get this paper up and do big things.

MVRemix: Does the album have a date? I know there’s rumours flying around about in the fall, in the winter…

Obie Trice: We tryin’ to get it out the end of the summer, that’s what we wanna do. Like late August, somethin’ like that. That’s what I’m tryin’ to do, that’s what I’m pushin’ for. We just mixin’ with this tour goin’ on, we gotta sit down when we get home – we’ve got like two or three weeks at home before we go overseas. So we want to get it together then and set up a master.

MVRemix: That’s hot. You were telling me a minute ago that you’ve got a single with Stat Quo, can you talk about that for a second?

Obie Trice: Yeah, Stat came to Detroit. Denaun Porter from D-12, he made the beat and we just got in the studio and knocked it out. It’s a wrap for that song, it’s my first collaboration with Stat Quo and it turned out to be a hit. So I just feel good about it, it’s goin’ down.
