Guilty Simpson OJ Simpson

Guilty Simpson OJ Simpson
Some things just go well together: peanut butter and jam, Heinekens and BBQ, winter and hockey. Stones Throw artists Madlib and Guilty Simpson are yet another example of a great combination. Back with the follow-up to his criminally overlooked 2008 debut album, Ode To The Ghetto, Detroit, MI's Guilty Simpson returns to spin some gritty street yarns over some fresh and innovative beats produced entirely by Madlib. From the menacing analog creeper that is "Coroner's Music" to the Dilla eulogy served up on "Cali Hills," Guilty and Madlib remind us why they sound so damn good together. When Madlib's involved, his creativity can get a bit excessive, as this disc could have used a few less skits and interludes and more of the lyrically dope West Coast/East Coast future funk the duo push out on this release. Needless to say, this album blows out 90-percent of the rap you hear nowadays. Do yourself a favour and turn off the radio and press play on this burner. (Stones Throw)
