Back in June of ‘08, many fans were shocked to hear of Obie Trice‘s departure from Shady Records. Obie’s decision to go independent influenced at least one former labelmate; according to Dear Summer (Pt. 2), it was all the convincing Stat Quo needed to jump ship as well. Despite all the setbacks, the Detroit native continues to count his Bunch Of Blessings; after the rough street life (complete with frequent jail stays) he’s overcome, what’s label politics to him? Assisted by Luciano‘s hook and a reggae-influenced beat courtesy of K.I.D.D., Bunch Of Blessings, though not a single yet, is still an optimistic jam that Midwesterners are sure to put on frequent play in their iPods (with our media director hailing from Chicago and our two blurbwriters from metro Milwaukee and the Twin Cities, we should know).
