"My parents never even knew I was making music 'cause I'd only do it privately. I was really into sports -- that was my passion first. I was trying to play college basketball," said 25-year-old singer and rapper Amir Obè to Billboard in an interview.
Now, the product of Detroit and Brooklyn upbringings, Obè centers his focus on music. As a frequent collaborator with OVO affiliates PARTYNEXTDOOR and even Drake on "Star67" from IYRTITL, Obè gains national attention from the working relationship he has formed with the Toronto crew.
A year after releasing his "Detrooklyn" mixtape, Obè releases his new EP, Happening In The Grey Area. The project is preceded by lead singles "Truth For You," "I'm Good," both featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, and "Just Know," which some may have heard on Soulection Radio.
The artist calls his music "very conversational," and his relationship with OVO "Not anything official." However, be alert for more OVO x Amir Obè music and listen to Happening In The Grey Area below.
