“…And the bugs don’t run.”
Detroit has to be one of the gulliest places on the face of the globe, hands down. There’s famine-stricken regions in Africa, war zones in Southern Asia, select slums in South America and then there’s Detroit. At least that’s what Hip-Hop from that region has generally taught us. One child of the Hell pit that be that city, Mr. Obie Trice (real name, no gimmicks), had a track on his album a few years ago that described that depravity quite well that had almost slipped into the recesses of memory never to be found again.
But as news of O resurfacing with yet another alcohol themed release hit the webs, a lady-friend politely inquired “Didn’t Trey Songz do a song with this guy?”
Yes, “this guy” did a track with Trey. Several. For his 2006 album Second Round’s On Me. This was before Trey Songz became
a stripper/prostitute more mainstream. Back then the young singer hopped on this one track and laid a painfully fitting harmony to buffer Obie’s crass description of the ruins he calls home. It was glorious.
