"Producer Madlib (Otis Jackson) + MC Guilty Simpson = OJ Simpson. OJ Simpson. That's the name of the album. No bloody gloves. No Ford Broncos. These are some 12 hard-hitting, straight-from-the-gutter hip hop tracks featuring Guilty's inimitable baritone, and an equal number of Madlib's signature album-as-soundtrack/radio/sideshow arrangements, where the beat and sequence is as important as the rap. This, with a couple no-nonsense guest appearances, some cuts by J.Rocc, and a whole bunch of attitude, makes up one of our favorite projects in a while. The charisma that Detroit's heavy hitting MC Guilty Simpson and the Los Angeles-based Beat Konducta Madlib share testifies to a musical kinship that is rare in today's rapper-as-an-accessory marketplace. Going back to Guilty's first appearance on wax (Jaylib's Strapped, 2003), Guilty over a Madlib beat to us is like hearing Guru over Premier circa Daily Operation, or CL over Pete around the time of Straighten It Out. Sometimes, a rapper and a producer just work well together."
