Guilty Simpson on Dilla: “I didn’t want to two-track beats and record ‘em with him not being here.”

By April 3, 2008 Music

The bawss Jerry Barrow speaks to Guilty Simpson about his new album.

Detroit MC Guilty Simpson built his career making guest appearances on tracks produced by the late J-Dilla. But when it was time to release his critically acclaimed debut, Ode To The Ghetto, there weren’t as many sound beds from Mr. Yancey as some fans had hoped.

“I didn’t want to two-track beats and record ‘em with him not being here,” explains Simpson, who was first heard by many outside of Detroit on “Strapped” from Jaylib’s Champion Sound.
