Product Description

OJ Simpson is the pairing of D etroit's heavy hitting MC Guilty Simpson and the Los Angeles-based Beat Konducta Madlib. These are 12 hard-hitting hip-hop tracks featuring GuiltySimpson's inimitable baritone, and an equal number of Madlib's signature album-as-soundtrack/radio/sideshow arrangements, where the beat & sequence is as important as the rap.

About the Artist

Guilty Simpson was born in Detroit, the son and grandson of the family's performing musicians in his father and grandfather. At age four, Simpson and his mother began traveling with an aunt in the military, living in California and Birmingham, Alabama, before settling back in the Motor City at 15. Big Daddy Kane, N.W.A, and Scarface were all major influences, but it was Queens-bred street bard Kool G Rap who made the biggest impression. "That's my crème de la crème rapper right there," says Simpson, his own presence among the latest in a rich lineage of heavy-handed MCs

For years Guilty Simpson has been a rock on the Detroit hip-hop circuit alongside those such as J Dilla, Slum Village, Eminem (whom Guilty still calls "Marshall") & D12, Obie Trice, Proof, Phat Kat and Black Milk. A member of the Almighty Dreadnaughtz crew, Guilty emerged as a sound to be reckoned with after linking with producer Dilla in 2001. In the midst of recording an album's worth of material on the MC - including the recently released duet "Take Notice" off of Dilla's heralded Ruff Draft album - Dilla gave Simpson his first appearance on disc with "Strapped" (from 2003's Jaylib album).

2006 marked his allegiance with Stones Throw Records - at Dilla's behest - and appearances on both Chrome Children installments and subsequent tour. It's taken years, but finally Simpson's full-length solo debut, Ode to the Ghetto, brings him worldwide, chronicling a life led in the rough-hewn city that birthed him.

Featuring an all-star cast of producers normally reserved for those signed to six-figure deals (J Dilla, Madlib, Denaun Porter of D-12), Ode to the Ghetto marks an evolution, incorporating a more topical and thought-provoking persona in addition to the extra-savage braggadocio Simpson is known for. "I want to make the consumer care about the music again," the 31-year-old explains.

Guilty's testosterone-charged, inner city themes possess of a sense of humor at times so side-splitting, it only proves how serious he really is. This rapper was raised on the field of battle and he has more to say than just how fresh he is and how fresh "they" are not. As a matter of fact, he's found that he's here to remind the hip-hop world - currently captivated with that manufactured freshness - that life in the ghetto is real.

The evidence shows excessive use of double entendres, too much flavor on public grounds, microphone assault, and verbal harassment of an officer of the law. On the counts of freshness AND realness: The Court of Hip-Hop finds Mr. Simpson to be Guilty.

Guilty Simpson returns with another album and my favorite of his (I'd give "Ode to the Ghetto" 3.5/4 stars and have only heard parts of "Stray Bullets"). I'd say it could be a high 4.5 or 5 star album, but the format of the disc brings it down. 24 tracks, 12 songs, so for the most part you get skit, song, skit, song so it gets annoying having to skip forward a track after every song, unless you want to listed to all the skits. Of the 12 songs, 1 is almost a classic, 1 is ok, the other 10 are good, mostly real good/great songs. Guests are only on 2 songs so you get enough of Mr. Simpson. Production is great as well and hjandled entirely by MadLib (who did a 1/3 of his "Ode to the Ghetto" and Simpson's voice and unique flow fit great with his sound)> A must have album, that exceeded my expectations.

#3 - 9 (nice beat)
#5 - 9 (tight beat)
#6 - 9 (another nice beat)
#8 - 8.5 (sounds like an old video game beat)
#10 - 9 (nice beat)
#12 - 8.5 (good/different sounding beat)
#14 - 9.5 (nice beat and dedication to J DIlla)
#17 - 8.5 (f/ Frank)
#19 - 7 (f/ Strong arm Steady)
#21 - 8.5 (good beat0
#22 - 8.5 (good beat)
#23 - 9 (another nice beat)

The rhymes are complex - yet Guilty makes it sound so simple.
Madlib has fused a multitude of beats and samples - there's always something new each listening!
Love it. You will too!

These two incredible artists are money when they get together. No this album will not make much dough but this is just what I have been waiting for. Overall a great CD. The skits and beats keep the cd moving at a good and pace and guilty takes you on a trip with the grimy. Ode To the Ghetto overall may have been a bit better but I like the approach on this album. Madlib uses plenty of what gives him his name, at times reminding me of DOOM. J Dilla and Guilty were so amazing together and Madlib and Guilt are just about as good. RIP Jay DEE

This album is all that I expected from Guilty. I am a fan of his hard style and honesty. If you don't like hard lyrics and J-Dilla and Madlibs hard beats, you need not listen to this album. Guilty speaks his mind and tells his tales of ghetto life in Detroit. Overall this is a four star album.
