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.
When I hear this at the listening party I got hype as soon as I heard Sean say “Chewbacca“. That’s it, that one word, 3 syllables I knew what was about to go down. Props to SeanPrice, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson and Roc Marciano on a beautifully executed track. Shout out to Duck Down Records, Dru Hah, Buckshot and the whole crew.
I haven’t heard Catch Lungs before, but having two dope MC’s like eLZhi & Guilty Simpson on your song certainly did the trick. You have my attention. This breakbeat inspired track will make your head nod. eLZhi sets it off riding the beat fluidly with a freestyle flow. Guilty did “body the track” and “get busy”.Â Catch Lungs, fromÂ DENVER,Â Colorado, has a dope flow on this. His voice and flow are a little reminiscent of The Pharcyde. According to his MySpace page
Catch Lungs rookie debut album entitled “Food for the Famished” dropped in late 2008.
