Remember when Shady/Aftermath/G-Unit was running shit in the early-to-mid 2000s. Eminem was on top of his game, 50 Cent and G-Unit was the shit and Obie Trice dropped his debut album. Obie Trice was the least known member of that entire camp. When they were beefing with Murder Inc, Benzino or whoever, he was there spitting bars at whoever. Cheers was his debut album and it was released 15 years ago today. Cheers had crazy features like Eminem, 50 Cent, G-Unit, Busta Rhymes, Dr. Dre and Nate Dogg. Cheers went on to sell over two million records and the lead single was Got Some Teeth. Got Some Teeth was pure comedy, which is the best way I can describe it.
Shit Hits the Fan was the next single and it was released a little over a month after the Cheers album dropped. This track appeared on damn near ever mixtape you can think of during that time. Shit Hits the Fan featured Dr. Dre and Eminem. The track saw Dr. Dre spit some fire at Ja Rule, plus Obie Trice and Eminem did their thing also. Shit Hits the Fan was definitely one of the standout tracks from the album. We All Die One Day was another banger on the album that was on many mixtapes also. We All Die One Day featured Eminem, 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks. After the videos below, you can check out the track listing and the album also.
