OB O’Brien Taps Drake for ’2 On/Thotful’

OB OBrien
SoundCloud

If the name OB O’Brien doesn’t ring a bell, the face should; he’s the ginger dude in the owl suit trying to flog his struggle mixtape to Juicy J in Drake‘s ‘Worst Behavior‘ video. While that looked like nothing more than a great satirical performance, there’s actually some self-depreciating truth to that scene: OB O’Brien is an aspiring rapper.

Fortunately, the Hamilton, ON native doesn’t have to desperately sell himself to established rappers anymore, because he’s already signed to Drake’s OVO Sound imprint. After making his debut at the start of the year with the playful boom bap cut ‘Steve Nash,’ OB is back with a banger, featuring none other than Drizzy Drake.

A remix of Tinashe’s DJ Mustard-produced hit, ’2 On/Thotful’ opens with a typically amusing verse from OB that you can’t quite tell if it’s serious or a joke, before Aubrey, naturally, steals the spotlight. The OVO boss not only recreates Tinashe’s infectious hook, but delivers a 60-second verse followed by a woozy sing-song outro that echoes ‘Doing It Wrong.’

Having captured everyone’s attention with ’2 On/Thotful,’ OB O’Brien wisely follows up with a second song called ‘Hazelton Trump,’ which he handles solo. Swapping the self-depreciating sarcasm for straight-faced swag, OB pays tribute to the small British Columbia town (probably the first rapper in history to do so) on the bouncy, head-nodding number.

You can stream and download both songs below.
