Amir Obé - Detrooklyn (OFFICIAL TRAILER)
Amir Obè (formerly Phreshy Duzit)
“Hennessy Breath” (audio)
Amir Obè brings an authentic and undeniable sound to the ever-evolving Hip Hop scene. After parting ways with Atlantic Records, and dropping the stage name given to him by the major label, Amir gained complete creative control as an indie artist. Then the Detroit native moved to Brooklyn where he spent most days writing rhymes in the infamous Marcy projects, Detrooklyn represents the sonic fusion of the two cities that influenced Amir’s artistry- the mixtape will be available for free download on July 7th.
In the trailer for Detrooklyn, Amir sets an intense, relevant tone with scenes of the 1967 Detroit riots, considered one of the most violent urban rebellions in the 20th century. The visuals in the trailer depict warfare and strife, at the same time the music is soothing and draws you in as Amir inhales and exhales the smoke that once fogged the city of Detroit. Amir notes, "My goal for Detrooklyn was to place the listener in my perspective. There is an atmosphere to every song, some being imaginative and others being very real scenarios. This trailer gives you both sides, peace and chaos."
Today, Complex.com premiered "Hennessy Breath" -a new single from the forthcoming mixtape, Detrooklyn, produced by longtime collaborator and fellow Detroit native, NYLZ. Acclaimed as a clever storyteller and a ladies man, Amir Obè rhymes about moving his relationship to the next level with his current girlfriend, even though she’s a city girl. The visual for “Hennessy Breath” is in post-production and will be released in the coming weeks.
