Obie Trice was raised in Detroit by his mother and alongside three brothers, in a family of African- American but also German ancesrty. He showed an interest in music, rapping in particular, at the age of 11 when he was given a karaoke machine as a gift from his mother. Prior to making his own mixtapes, Obie used to practice rhymes over the songs of Big Daddy Kane, Darryl McDaniels and hip hop group N.W.A. At the age of 14, Obie Trice began to attend various rap battle events all around Detroit, which led to him dropping out from Cooley High School, and pursuing a rapping career.

In the course of the next several years, Obie Trice significantly improved his skills, and began to make mixtapes which shook up Detroit’s underground scene in a positive way. The real breakthrough in Obie Trice’s career came in 1999, when he “caught the ear” of one of the world’s best selling musician and rap legends – Eminem. After successfully passing an audition, Obie Trice was officially signed to Eminem’s own record label, Shady Records, in 2000. His rapping skills were presented to the broader audience through a freestyle skit on an D12 album called “Devil’s Night”, which was followed by collaboration with Eminem himself on hit singles from “The Eminem Show” album, “Without Me” and “Drips”. These, besides establishing Obie Trice as a rapper on the global rap scene, also provided the basis for his wealth.

This initial success was followed by Obie Trice’s contribution to the original soundtrack of the 2002 drama “8 Mile”, featuring Eminem in the leading role. Obie also made a cameo appearance in the movie, as a rapper on the parking lot. In 2003, Obie Trice under the Shady Records label released his debut album “Cheers” which, by the end of 2005, was certified platinum and added a huge sum to the overall net worth of Obie Trice.

In 2006, Obie’s second studio album “Second Round’s on Me” was released, also under the Shady Records label, however, he felt that the label had not managed to give him a good, promotional push and decided to leave in 2008, although staying close friends with Eminem. In 2009, Obie released a compilation album, “Special Reserve” under the Works of Mart label, before launching his own record label company in 2010, named Black Market Entertainment. A year later, “Bottoms Up”, Obie’s third studio album was released featuring Eminem and Jay-Z as special guests. All these accomplishments certainly massively increased the total size of Obie Trice’s net worth.

In his rapping career so far, Obie Trice has released five studio albums and four official mixtapes on which he collaborated with some of the greatest names in the world of rap music including, apart from those already mentioned, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Lloyd Banks and Nate Dogg. It is certain that all these achievements have helped Obie Trice to add millions to his now quite impressive overall net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Obie Trice was shot twice. It all occurred on the 2006 New Year’s Eve while he was driving in the streets of Detroit with his girlfriend. One of the bullets hit Obie in the head, and due to a high operation risk, that bullet was never removed and is still struck in Obie Trice’s skull. Formal acknowledgment of any relationship is lacking.

1You know, I'm the 1st black solo MC from Detroit. I didn't do the 50 Cent sales but hey... I got a long career, I'm still young and I'm trying to bring really good music.
2I think it need realness, you should speak on thing that you know about, that you being from, that you experienced or that you been around, you know. I think you need a good hook, good beats and good lyrics.
3I was about 11 when my mother brought me this karaoke machine and I was really into it back then, but about 4 or 5 years ago is when I started printing up my own music, going to the studio and doing my own thing.
4Where's Eminem, when is Em coming out, Em this, Em that, 50 this, 50 that... What about Obie?
5Yeah I grew up on the Westside of Detroit.
6The Anger Management Tour was another beautiful thing. I loved that tour.
7I'm just going to do me; I'm not trying to do the Eminem thing, the D12 thing or the 50 thing.
8I'm the 1st black platinum artist in Detroit, solo artist in Detroit.
9I'm working on my new album right now. Hopefully to get that out at the top of 2005, January 2005.
10Let's say I was a plumber, or I worked at a factory, I would download music, you feel what I'm saying?
11I want to get off with the screenwriting.
12I get the music, I get the beats. And I go to the studios and write the lyrics.
13I don't actually sit down and write, but I just have a lot of different ideas about films and making movies.
14I don't want to be an actor or nothing but if I have to, I'll act if it's the right thing.
15I just do what I'm here for and that's to make that music.
16Downloading songs is not good.
17Eminem is more like a friend. And I'm also a fan on Eminem.
18I just don't want to be rapping forever. I love it, but sometimes you got goals for yourself.
197 Mile is like an Ave. Back in the days it was poppin' in the summer time.
20Beef is beef, you know. Beef comes, so Beef is real.
21But working with Dre, I grew up with his music, so I'm still like more a fan.
22But since I am in the music industry, I don't want anyone to download music, not on September 9th.
23Working with 50 Cent was great, you know what Im saying? It was just great to work with 50 Cent.
24Well, Eminem, you know, I know him longer. Ive been signed to his label since 2001 and he's a good friend.
25I would say old school cats like Redman and Wu-tang. My style is my style, those are just cats that I liked.
26Detroit is right now a new Mecca for Hip Hop.
