The cheeky rapper reckons his pal EMINEM - who also produced the new record - is just like brainbox character Frasier, while he'd like to be TED DANSON's super-smooth character.
Obie says, "I named my album Cheers because it's a celebration of me being here - it could have been the case that (fellow rapper) BIZARRE didn't call me that day to rap for Eminem.
"But also I used to watch Cheers. You know, SAM was the coolest motherf***er. I like Sam because he ran s***, he had the women, he was a f***ing player. They were all cool, but I'd have to be that dude.
"If Cheers was set in a Detroit bar, I think Eminem would be Frasier, because he's kind of witty."21/11/2003 17:04
