GUILTY SIMPSON gained the attention of two pillars of the D’s underground hip hop community—D12’s DENAUN PORTER and late great producer/emcee J DILLA. Dilla’s subsequent death in early ‘06 left Simpson’s solo debut The Verdict at the demo stage. But all wasn’t lost for Guilty, as Jay Dee featured the up-and-comer on his 2003 collaboration with fellow producer Madlib, Champion Sound and Dilla’s posthumously released album The Shining. Now Guilty is preparing his official first LP Ode to the Ghetto. Featuring production from MADLIB, Denaun Porter, OH NO, BLACK MILK, and, of course, J Dilla, the album should impact the game the same way that nose bone would your brain.
