Guilty 25 Mar 2008
By Exxxxx - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not too familiar with this guy, I've heard him on several colabs over the past couple of years and thought he was pretty tight, especially after hearing his verse on Dabrye's last album. With that said I have to admit I was skeptical about this one when I first heard about it because cats who spend years as guest appearance artists rarely impress me when they finally get around to releasing their solos, but after hearing the 30 second clips a couple of weeks ago I was already sold and couldn't wait to grab this joint. I've listened to this all the way through 3 times already in the Jeep, and it sounds incredible. Every beat on here is superb, especially Oh No and Blackmilk's contributions. Guilty sounds really sharp on every cut here too, but even though he's pretty clever with his wordplay there's a lot of typical lyrical content as well which I expected from an album titled "Ode to the Ghetto" anyway. There's an excellent old Dilla beat on here that I'd never heard before which makes the album worthy of picking up alone, but as I said before the production all through this album is top notch. In my opinion this is one of the best examples of crossover material for rap/hip hop fans, it's definitley gritty with that underground flavor, but the production is slick and catchy, and there's no super-scientifical lyrical miracle emcees here so mainstream heads could dig this too.

4 1/2 Stars...Let Me See Your Footwork... 11 Aug 2008
By J. Rummer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Guilty is what he is...which happens to be a lighthearted-yet gritty dude with a simple flow, backed by simple beats...That said, this album grows greatly on the listener, with a handful of laugh out loud moments...All in all, I found this album entertaining and better than anything the mainstream has to offer. Peace.

Nice release 15 Jun 2008
By DoubleU - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I had 5-star hopes when I heard the opening track, but I think overall this is a 4-star album. It is a good listen and worth picking up if you like a slightly alt-rap sound. Even if not, expand your horizons and check it out -- the beats are very nice.

"Ode to Guilty Simpson" 3 April 2010
By M. Brown - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Guilty Simpson is one of my favorite new emcees to come out of the "Stones Throw" label.He sounds like a cross between both "Sean Price",of "Bootcamp Clik",and "Big Shugg",a "Gang Starr" affiliate,and talented,underground emcee.The production will definitely keep you're head nodding.I think that "Peanut Butter Wolf",and "Madlib" do the majority of the beats,and they do it well,as always.Guilty Simpson spits about life in the streets of Detroit,where's he's from,over some pretty tripped-out beats.They're aren't too many guest appearances,which is good,because it gives Guilty Simpson a chance to really showcase his skills on the mic.If you like the other albums that I've reviewed,add this one to the roster,at the top of the list.Also,I recently heard that Guilty Simpson is coming out with a collaboration album with,Sean Price,of the classic rap group,"Heltah Skeltah",and "Torae",who is an equally skilled emcee as the both of them.Lastly,if you don't already have this album in your collection,COP IT NOW!I have bought,and rebought this cd three times,it's that good!Shout out to the whole "Duck Down" and "Stones Throw" labels for all there stellar releases over the past few years.Keep putting out that heat for the streets,and cop this now,whether it's your first or third time,you won't be sorry.
