What a week. 1st Stones Throw announces Move in Toronto, then they confirm the long awaited release: Guilty Simpson's Ode To The Ghetto.
Last year, Guilty released a well received and celebrated Stray Bullets mixtape that cats stood in single file for. Guilty has been the buzz for quite sometime and there seemed to be no stopping the swelling of his fanbase.
Look for production to be handled mostly by a mix of Madlib, Black Milk and Oh No. The late and greatest Dilla will also be given production credits. Ode also features the much talked about dream team of Jesus Price, Black and GS himself. So it's been written: March 25th is the day the gun talk picks up where Dilla left it off. Ironically, GS is the coolest guy around. Real quiet cat. We got to rap in London his summer @ a ST show @ the infamous Cargo. Anyhow, do your due Dillagence and make sure to grab it when it drops.
So whilst you duck frantically from all the strays, Guilty Simpson calmly plays. (back to back days w/ GS). Shouts to my man Eric Lau for the banger.
