Guilty Simpson is an MC from the hailed hip-hop scene of Detroit. Guilty was introduced to many through J Dilla who first included him on “Strapped” from Jaylib’s “Champion Sound” LP. Since then, Guilty has risen higher and higher in Hip-Hop’s collective conscience alongside peers like Black Milk, Phat Kat, Ta’raach and Frank-N-Dank. Originally to release an all-Dilla produced LP entitled “The Verdict”, it was shelved for reasons that were not entirely clear.
He has continued to make mixtape appearances and release twelve-inches with songs such as “Clap Your Hands” (from the Stones Throw “Chrome Children” compilation), “Let’s Smoke One”, and “For the D”.
Guilty’s debut album changed from being titled “The Verdict” to “Ode to the Ghetto” and was released in 2008.
