Detroit Rappers part 2 – Guilty Simpson


So…I was listening to J Dilla’s [R.I.P] ‘The Shining’ and I was pickin out my favorite joints. I came across this one joint called ‘Baby’. The beat was sick, the hook was addictive and the lyrical content fed my insatiable appetite for true hip-hop skills. This was back in like….06, I think. Anyway. That became my JAM. That whole album was…but that isn’t the point. I heard this cat spittin and it was absolutely ridiculous. Time went by and I was reintroduced to him through J Dilla’s ‘Ruff Draft’. I was hooked. His flow is so calm and I usually don’t like when I can’t hear obvious emotion in a lyricists voice. But Guilty Simpson has emotion….lots of it. And it’s obvious. Just in a different way. The manner in which his flow unrolls is calm, cool, and almost sensual. He sounds so serious that you can’t help but take him seriously.

Now he’s got this new album out. I’ve been rockin to it the past couple of months and it’s dope. ‘I Must Love You’ has got to be the anthem of all young urban relationships. Check him out ASAP.

Just Listen. ~Soul
