Proving he could sell records, Eminem was granted his own label, Shady Records. When he launched his own label, Eminem signed his crew, D12.
Obie Trice was known by Bizarre and he was soon added to Shady Records. A fixture in several music videos, Obie Trice became well-known.

Footage of the two in the studio circulated the internet. With Obie Trice’s Bottom’s Up album on the way, he sat down with local Detroit television station, MyFox 2, discussing his new album and work with Eminem and Dr. Dre.
