New Music: Obie Trice, Playa [ft. Bun B]

Song: Playa [ft. Bun B]
Artist: Obie Trice
Album: Bottom’s Up
Label: World Wide Hustle
Producer: unknown
Notes: none
Analysis: It’s a real shame that Obie Trice was dropped last year from Shady/Interscope, because while Eminem & 50 Cent are still stuck on five years ago, Obie’s music is forward-moving. On ‘Playa’, Trice has the golden co-sign from UGK’s Bun B. There’s a nice cruisy blaxpoitation score sample here, well-suited for both emcees. While this isn’t Obie or Bun’s (a twitter reference?) best lyrical work, the beat is smooth and tight. Maybe I’m feeling generous because it’s beautiful outside and this is the type of song I want to hear at this time of year.
