We knew Amir Obè was having a moment. We just didn’t realize it’d be quite so prolific. Just weeks after the Drake collaborator released his Happening In The Grey Area EP, Obè is blessing me, you, and the world at large with a surprise bonus project to go along with it, "Kill Your Pride."
If Happening In The Grey Area was a sprawling work on the road, defined by the in-between moments during which it was recorded, this track is targeted at everyone who made the mistake of doubting him.
"Now I got it like I said I would / And you ain’t saying nothing like I said you would,” Obè raps over a NYLZ beat that bumps high and low alongside his melodic flow. "You used to never say you were proud of me/ Kinda awkward that you doubted me."
Stream “Kill Your Pride" below, and listen to an artist who’s ready to take what’s his: “Here’s a bullet for you / Pull the trigger.”
