When it comes to hard-hitting underground hip-hop, Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson‘s respective Reputations precede them—and a merger of two such established brands is practically guaranteed to produce dope results. Having given listeners a foretaste of their collaborative debut via lead single Truth Be Told, the duo return to our pages with another freshly-released record off the project. In contrast to its reflective predecessor, this cut is a raw, grimy, declaration of hometown pride, with Brown flipping a sample from The Temptations’ Let Your Hair Down into an ominous groove as Simpson drops aggressive bars dedicated to the Motor City. Craving more? Then click here to purchase the duo’s Dice Game LP, released to iTunes yesterday via Mello Music Group—or wait till next Tuesday, November 13, and cop the physical version at a record store near you.
