Guilty Simpson is one of the most technically proficient and consistent MCs of the last several years. His fantastic debut, Ode To The Ghetto, introduced his hardcore sound to many. His underrated follow-up projects with Eric Lau, Black Milk and Madlib have only amplified what the gruff rhymer is capable of making.
For his latest full-length project, Guilty teams up with Apollo Brown, a fellow Detroit musician. Their album Dice Game is grimey without reeking of the early 90s.
Here’s what the label, Mello Music Group, has to say about the leak, “Reputation”:
“In a city in depression, rife with corruption and crime, many people have found an outlet in music. Amidst a scene that has played a pivotal role in modern hip-hop and electronic music, Guilty Simpson and Apollo Brown emerge, together, as the next up to bat. Dice Game, the collaborative album from the two, is Detroit through-and-through: uncompromising, gritty and soulful. Officially set to drop on November 13, today Dice Game sees an early release digitally. To celebrate the occasion, Mello Music Group let off the buckshot track “Reputation.” The song has Apollo serving up a certified heater (with a sample record heads will recognize) while Guilty knocks it clean out the park. Ride through The D with the duo as they show you the city that popularized Cardi frames, Cadillacs and carjacking.”
