When I think of Detroit hip-hop, people like Elzhi, Black Milk, and Slum Village come to mind. Not Guilty Simpson. While I’ve known of Simpson since first hearing him years ago on Elzhi’s Fire remix (his is the second to last verse), I’ve never been compelled to explore his music beyond features and the Random Axe album. So Detroit’s Son, his fifth album on the Stones Throw label, is my first experience of Guilty Simpson as a solo artist. And, having now played it for a few weeks, I can safely say that I’ve been sleeping on this guy.
