Producer Madlib (Otis Jackson) + MC Guilty Simpson = OJ Simpson. Thats the name of the album. No bloody gloves.. No Ford Broncos....These are some 12 hard-hitting. straightfrom-the-gutter hip-hop tracks featuring Guilty?s inimitable baritone. and an equal number of Madlibs signature album-assoundtrack/ radio/sideshow arrangements. where the beat & sequence is as important as the rap.
Producer Madlib (Otis Jackson) + MC Guilty Simpson = OJ Simpson. That’s the name of the album. No bloody gloves.. No Ford Broncos.... These are some 12 hard-hitting, straightfrom-the-gutter hip-hop tracks featuring Guilty’s inimitable baritone, and an equal number of Madlib’s signature album-assoundtrack/ radio/sideshow arrangements, where the beat & sequence is as important as the rap. This, with a couple no-nonsense guest appearances, some cuts by J.Rocc, and a whole bunch of attitude, makes up this project. Tip!
The charisma that Detroit’s heavy hitting MC Guilty Simpson and the Los Angeles based Beat Konducta Madlib share testifies to a musical kinship that is rare in today’s rapper-asan- accessory marketplace. Going back to Guilty’s first appearance on wax (Jaylib’s “Strapped” – 2003), Guilty over a Madlib beat to us is like hearing Guru over Premier circa Daily Operation, or CL over Pete around the time of “Straighten It Out.” Some times, a rapper and a producer just work well together.
