Cheers is the debut album by Obie Trice, released on September 23, 2003 after he was signed to Shady Records in 2000. The title track "Cheers" celebrates Obie's successful debut into the rap game after being in the Detroitmarker underground for many years. The album's title is a homage to the long running NBC sitcom of the same name, and the album cover features a logo similar to that used on the show.

The album consists of 17 tracks, with executive production from Eminem, and additional production by Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Mike Elizondo, Emile, Fredwreck and Kon Artis. Artists featuring on Cheers include Busta Rhymes, D12, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and Timbaland.

Topics Obie has touched on this album include his life on the streets of Detroit, problems with his mother, relationships with women and the soulful reminder that, despite having made it into the mainstream, he has not forgotten his friends.

This album contains no skits, unlike other artists on the Shady label.

Diss songs

Shit Hits the Fan

The track 'Shit Hits the Fan' is a track which insults Ja Rule. Examples of disses from Dr. Dre in the track are: "This little nigga, Ja Rule, Talking bout he's gonna slap me, Nigga please, you gotta jump and swing up to hit me at the knees." At the end of the song, Obie spoke over the beat telling Ja Rule to, "Go behind all the gangsta's you want. Matter of fact get every gangsta from every hood in the United States of America to back you. Aint nobody reppin with you, you cant see that?" This was intended to mock Ja Rule's street credibility, declaring that no one was backing him again and that he "fell off."

We All Die One Day

The track is a diss to Murder Inc, Benzino, The Source namely Kim O from the Source magazine. Examples from Lloyd Banks include a subliminal shot at Ja Rule and Irv Gotti like, 'Your boss and your captain soft'. Eminem dissed The Source with lines like, 'We burn Source covers like fuckin' Cypress Hill'.

Outro

The outro was a diss to Murder Inc & R.Kelly.
