Two Detroit titans, Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson, are joining forces for a collaborative album on Mello Music Group. Unlike lightweight rappers â€œscared to face the reality of truth,â€ Guilty Simpson isnâ€™t one to tiptoe around on the mic. â€œTruth Be Toldâ€ finds the Motor City rhymer bearing his soul over a slow-burning soul chop that is trademark Apollo Brown. Guiltyâ€™s usual ferocity is tempered by his introspection, reminiscing back to times when he was hustling and living fast but without direction. A sublime string loop gives Guiltyâ€™s monstrous mic presence center stage to tell his story, a specifically hood tale that is still widely relatable. Guilty punctuates his reflections with a worthwhile reminder: â€œYou want change? It starts with you.â€
Setting the tone for what you can expect on the full length, â€œTruth Be Toldâ€ hints at mature music, fundamentally sound hip-hop seasoned with substance and experience. With a monster behind the boards and a monster behind the mic, this is a Dice Game you donâ€™t want to miss. November 13th, mark your calendars.
