Obie Trice may not have been an official team member of Shady Records for some time now, but was there any doubt Slim wouldn’t show up in support of his old friend? “Richard” has just leaked, and it may be an Obie track, but attention will inevitably fall on Eminem, who’s, quite notably, not yelling here. Over a pleasantly old school-esque Statik Selektah beat, Obie and Marshall tear it up. The haters are sure to turn out, but the track’s a nice Shady 1.0 nostalgia piece regardless. Obie Trice’s Bottoms Up, complete with production from Dr. Dre and Eminem, finally drops April 3rd. It should also be noted that Statik tweeted declaring the leak an unmastered version, so be prepared for a release with superior quality.
