After serving up the grim "Holy Shit" earlier in August, Amir Obè unleashed the rest of his Can't Be A __ Here: Chapter 1 on Friday. The four-track effort will be the first of a three-part series. The project follows up the Detroit native's 2017 EP None of the Clocks Work from last March.

The first installment takes listeners into the depths of Obè's trials and tribulations, where he exposes the vices and demons that have plagued him throughout his life's journey. For the follow-up parts of the project, expect a more uplifting vibe from Amir, as he begins his gripping ascension from hell to heaven.

Chapter 1 includes tracks outside of "Holy Shit," such as "Masquerade," "Don't Belong Here" and the somber "Welcome to Rehab," which finds the 29-year-old looking inward in a cry for help over the harrowing Nylz production. Be on the lookout for Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 to finish off the series and more cinematic visuals from the Def Jam signee in the coming weeks.
