Thanks to hip hop legends such as J Dilla Detroit has developed a very unique sound and Guilty Simpson that tradition continues. After releasing his debut solo album Ode To The Ghetto in 2008, Simpson quickly established himself as one of Stones Throw’s flagship artists.
Two years later, Guilty returned with producer Madlib for OJ Simpson (Stones Throw, 2010), which Pitchfork heralded as “cohesive, focused, and flat-out fun… one of the best hip-hop records of the year.”
After a collaboration with the late Sean Price and producer Black Milk as Random Axe, and another with producer Apollo Brown, Guilty’s next appearance on Stones Throw was shorter but no less important – a guest verse on Fitta Happier by Geoff Barrow’s hip-hop production super-group Quakers.
Time spent with Katalyst in Australia then yielded an artistic chemistry between the MC and producer, and led directly to Guilty’s third album for Stones Throw. Detroit’s Son extracts the feel for Ode To The Ghetto and with the subject of life in the Motor City placed front and center, Guilty’s uncompromising rhymes fit seamlessly with Katalyst’s heavy beats.
