Artists scheduled to attend the “Obie Experience” include Eminem, Akon, D12, Dr. Dre, Trick Trick, DJ House Shoes, Chris Webber, Jerome Bettis, Royce Da 5’9 and others.
“Recognition for Detroit artist is a must, and Black Market Entertainment will be a conduit,” Obie Trice said in a statement.
Obie has inked a distribution deal with Universal for his upcoming album fourth solo album Bottom’s Up, which is slated to hit stores this year.
Although Obie Trice is no longer an artist on Eminem’s Shady Records imprint, the two remain friends and Bottom’s Up will feature an appearance by Eminem.
