Guilty Simpson, OJ Simpson
Itâ€™s not easy rapping over a Madlib Invazion. The Los Angeles producer is infamous for layering his beats with all sorts of nonsense that can turn an MCâ€™s performance into a mere sideshow. However, Guilty Simpson manages to hold his own on OJ Simpson. (The title not only references the fallen gridiron hero but also Otis Jackson, Madlibâ€™s real name.) The Detroit thug carries plenty of verbal â€œhammers,â€ drops gully thug rhymes, and promises a â€œHood Sentenceâ€ over â€œCoronerâ€™s Music.â€ Madlib fanatics shouldnâ€™t worry, either, as he crams this collaboration with plenty of comedy skits and wacky interludes. But when itâ€™s time to handle business, he turns up Guiltyâ€™s voice in the mix and lets the thug rock.
