Its only right that a D nigga post Uno on this one…Obie one of the most underated in the game…i know yall NY cats might be used to it, but its ill seein a nigga walk thru my hood in a vid…this nigga spittin…and stay top five on my “No bootleggin list”….Cry now
yeah, Obie is ill. he’s underrated like you all said, and i was feelin’ Cheers when i listened to it all the way thru (most of it was good). i like him regaardless of how good his album was tho, he’s one of those guys that i’m feelin’ just cuz of his character (no homo). i might buy Second Round when it drop, but i gotta see the official track list first. none of this year and a half old songs on a new album bullshit
Im glad Em didnt press him to do more of that jokey joke BS and let him show what he is capable of…..now all they need is to get royce back in the camp so I can get that em ,royce, obie callabo that will make my ears bleed
Obie needs to drop 1 more single before his album come out if he wanna sell. good video tho. he seems like he kinda on that `30′s-`40′s-`50′s vibe or whatever like Christina Aguilera & OutKast with the beats (i.e.: “Cry Now”, “Black Boy”, “Haters”). anyone else notice that?
@ ill change .I just like the fact that he didnt grab Em or 50 to cosign him in the vid….come to think of it not even an ass wobblin to carry that joint….just lyrics….wit all the driveby shovelings (loon) and press conference beefs niggaz forget about LYRICS
yeah, it’s cool he decided not to get either of them, but i think it’ll hurt his sales. i think i read somewhere that MTV wouldn’t play “Snitch” cuz of the message of the video, and that was his first single (not a good look). now he’s at it with his second single, but it’s not as pop (no Akon on the hook or shit like that). i think it would help him just to have Eminem be in the video hangin’ with him.
Eskay I miss you baby hahahahahahaha now why you take that shit so far? Just post banks video nigga and all is well….. I notice that the less I say about G-Unit the more they get love on this blog but since I haven’t seen the banks video and I’m sure his return video is worthy of posting…
Nigga shut the fuck up, obies flow is in no way similar to jays flow. Everytime a rapper spit a flow thats considered fire faggots like u gotta attribute it to jays flow??? Negro please, get of jays duck and give props where its due. Jay Z didnt exactly master his own flow he also swagger jacked little by little till he got his own shit. Obie got the lyricism on lock so give him his props and all it a day. And for madden, nigga the new banks video is on youtube so shut the fuck up and type llyod banks in teh youtueb search box to see the video of hands up. Banks is sick but sorry, obie got his hands up track beat with the cry now. And thats why it was posted.
Royce? Independent’s Day was just another disappointment for 2005. Death is Certain was good. I’ll be watching, but not anticipating. I’ve heard dozens of wack songs from Premier. He is just a producer.
Obie is a must buy. He has been killing everything for about a year now. I hope this album also has no skits.

^I agree 100% but I think he’ll lay somethin’ more concrete this time around. Hopefully he’ll stick to his promise of having mostly (if not all) Primo beats. And what you said about Primo, same here…but he’s got a few artists he vibes well with, or at least artists that match his beats well…and Royce is one of ‘em IMO.
I always said dude was nice, and besides Em and Royce, he’s definitely one of the nicest out of The D. I always thought he was sick but still never copped his first album. Not on purpose though… just one of those albums that I think, “damn, I need to get Obie’s album next time I’m in the store”, but never get it.
After â€œRap Nameâ€ and â€œGot Some Teethâ€ he just seemed like the black Eminem.
^^^^ Partial co-sign. I think he some good joints on there, especially that track with Bus- fire. But too much of the cd was a Em soundalike.
But I got the advance preview for 2nd Round- Obie is comin with heat.
And for the last time- Niggas need to stop riding Jay & Royce’s dicks son. Obie don’t sound nothing like them. Ya’ll always gotta hate when someone steps their game up, flow or lyrics. The game is nearly 30 years old- everybody gonna be compared- that don’t mean it’s right niggas.
And word to Eskay- ya’ll niggas is sounding like babies right now, talkin ’bout “you ain’t show NY no love mayne”. FOH….
This track is fuckin off the hook… Obie’s new album is gonna be one of the best of 06, if not THE best.
And I don’t think he’s imitating anyone’s flow here, he’s just hungry… dude got popped in the head, I think he’s got the right to switch his whole position up and come with that raw shit. Besides, Cheers was completely under Em’s direction…
I wanna know what in HELL happened to the fottage from the Cry Now song Obie performed twice in Grand Rapids, MI at the Intersection last month. He said it would be used in the video! WTF I was in the front row of that shit screaming and they didn’t even show it.
