The other day I opened my physical mailbox and was pleasantly surprised when I seen a joint album from Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson in it’s packaging, just waiting to be inserted into my car’s dash. After two solid listens, the project is exactly what you think it would be. Tough as nails. And while the album doesn’t drop until November 13th, folks can get a preview of what to expect by hitting the jump and checking the tracklisting.
Mello Music Group is ecstatic to announce Dice Game, a 16 track collaborative album between Detroit’s Guilty Simpson & Apollo Brown. The former’s work with Madlib and Dilla already establish him as one of the current greats on the mic and the latter’s heralded music with OC and his own group, The Left, hint towards a similar path in his own canon. The Motor City titans join forces to create an unabashedly hardcore record, without catering to the club or radio.
The full-length album is rife with aggressive content that does not sacrifice quality and musicality. This is music for OG’s, for heads who hunger for that quality street music before the genre by-and-large made a caricature of itself. Though the block may be getting icy by release November 13th, stay on the corner with a few veterans and shoot a Dice Game.
