For years Guilty Simpson has been a rock on the Detroit hip hop circuit alongside those such as J Dilla, Slum Village, Obie Trice, Phat Kat and Black Milk. He emerged as a sound of reckoning after linking with producer Dilla in 2001, who gave Simpson his first appearance on disc with “Strapped,” off of 2003’s Jaylib 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. It’s taken years, but finally Simpson’s full-length solo debut, Ode to the Ghetto, brings him worldwide, while chronicling a life lead 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.
