2 On/Thotful - Single
While the name OB O’Brien might not register, even in some hip-hop circles, you’ve probably heard of his buddy Drake. O’Brien is part of the OVO crew, acting like he works in a Shoppers Drug Mart in the music video for "Started From the Bottom" and the one donning the OVO owl mascot costume in the video for "Worst Behavior". He’s also a Hamilton ON-based MC, and unveiled a pair of new tracks this week on Soundcloud. The a-side, “2 On/Thotful” flips a remixed beat from R&B up-and-comer Tinashe, and has Drizzy featured on a guest verse and also singing on the smooth chorus. Not a big surprise, but the track was picked up by more than a handful of blogs, and is nearing 750k streams within 2 days of release. It certainly doesn’t hurt having the country’s biggest rap star repping your new material. “Hazelton Trump” is the NSFW b-side, and finds O’Brien solely the focus of attention, showing off his own lyrical skills. You’ll be hearing more of his name soon enough.
