Obie Trice’s first full-length since splitting with Shady Records is actually a retrospective of his early years. Special Reserve collects songs Obie recorded between 1997 and 2000, when he was in a creative partnership with producer MoSS. Now that Obie has endured the bumps and bruises of a major-label career, it’s not hard to see why he would want to revisit these underground recordings. Special Reserve is uncompromising, determined, and ruthlessly focused. The beats MoSS provided are the perfect match for Obie’s precise and inexorable flow. These are forward-thrusting marches, completely devoid of the fluffy synthesizers and sound effects that have become a part of the contemporary rap landscape. The music captures all the desperation and rage of Detroit city life, before Eminem sold the city’s story to Hollywood. “Got Hungry” and “Roughnecks” are as unforgettable as a tire iron to the skull, but “Dope, Jobs, Homeless” is the collection’s most fearsome, chilling song. Even though the song was written in the late ‘90s, it foretells the reality of 2009, the year Detroit’s recession went national.
