Dodging bullets, chasing paper, swilling whiskey with gangsters—Guilty Simpson‘s daily agenda might seem harrowing to your average Joe, but It’s Nuthin to the Motown street vet. The latest single off the underground mainstay’s debut collaborative set with Small Professor continues in the street-ready vein of last week’s On the Run. Over his partner’s tense blues/soul samples, Guilty informs us that, despite the dangers lurking around every corner of his ‘hood, he remains his own most formidable foe: “Nowadays I’m just tryin’ to top me / Playin’ on a level that few will ever see.” AG contributes guest bars. Has this gritty selection left you craving more? Then be sure to cop Highway Robbery when it drops Tuesday, September 24, via Coalmine Records.
