OBIE WON AKA SPLIFF HUX hails from Cleveland, Ohio, specifically Cleveland Heights. Blessed with an exceptional ability to integrate words, syllables and phrases seamlessly into a format that sounds like no one past, present or future, there is no limit to where music will take him. OBIE WON is a student of late 80’s, early 90’s Hip-Hop which drives his focus on making music with substance and cultural relevance as opposed to following trends. Growing up under his Daddy, he was exposed to Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Jacob Miller and later Roots Dancehall artists such as Shabba Ranks, Sizzla, Capleton, Anthony B etc. In the same vein, OBIE WON was exposed to the Clark Sisters, Mississippi Mass Choir, Mahalia Jackson & Take 6 in addition to numerous Gospel choir rehearsals from his Mother. These experiences combined with his budding affection for Ol' Dirty Bastard, Sade, EPMD, Beres Hammond, Ice Cube, Freddy McGregor, Organized Konfusion, Brothers 4 the Struggle, Maxwell, Twista, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins & Enya forced him to find his own unique voice and perfect it.
    Fast forward to 2015 and one will find OBIE WON having released two visuals for the current singles "All My People" & the smash Reggae hit "Dancehall Nice Again." Ready to release his first full length album in two decades, HUMANFIREBALL is poised to own 2015. Along with the release of his new album, is the international compilation release entitled High Definition Riddim. It features artists from 4 continents & will be released Spring 2015. Obie Won's label, FIREBALL EDUTAINMENT will be releasing a 20th anniversary edition of his first album :From the Cave to the Grave: Welcome to the Treacherous. With numerous projects in the works, he is also ready to start burning down stages again with brand new material alongside established crowd favorites. When he comes to your city, mortgage your home, take out an auto title loan, break open your children's piggy banks, do whatever takes not to miss his show as he is literally on fire!
