Obie's got nothin' but love for the Sault (18 photos)

In sharp contrast to homophobic comments the Detroit rapper made during a recent Toronto show

“We want you to know we have nothing but love. No matter your race, creed, gender or whatever, we love you all,” Obie Trice told the audience at the Canadian Night Club early into his Friday evening performance.

This statement is in sharp contrast to homophobic and transphobic comments the Detroit rapper made during a recent show in Toronto. Trice later issued an apology via Instagram, however the video has since been removed from his social media account.

Trice performed in the Sault as part of his Cheers 15th Anniversary Tour presented by Cabin Media that also included stops in North Bay and Parry Sound. Joining Trice on stage last evening was Swifty McVay of D12 fame. Show openers included Robbie G and the Sault’s own Big Remz.

Next up on the hip hop roster for Sault Ste. Marie will be The Game at The Machine Shop on Monday, Jan. 21. Tickets are currently available online and you must be 19 or older to attend.
