Guilty Simpson - Ode To The Ghetto

Guilty Simpson did the equivalent of knocking me out lyrically when I heard him.

Simpson became one of my favorite rappers after one listen of his debut album, Ode To The Ghetto, and the guest appearances I've heard over the last few years.

I haven't heard rhymes and delivery like his since Sean Price who too is one of my hip hop go-to guys.

There's a lot of bullshit in the world and in hip hop. Simpson's dirty, don't-care flow is the closest I can get when I want the real, no-frills hip hop.

His take no prisoners; no holding back delivery is what I need from hip hop. He might be too gutter or raw for some to handle but I’ll take more real over fake any day.
