Could GS be one of the hardest working cats?? Might be. Adding up all the tracks that he's guest on might total a full album - and those are the ones that I know of. There are a few that are circulating around these parts of the country in fact that will soon see light of day... In any case, what are the chances that, on a provincial holiday in Toronto, I get a notice of 2 (yes 2) tracks, both featuring Guilty Simpson? You're gangster when you have 2 emails of releases from separate labels on the same day. Nuts.
1st up, from the EU side of things, we have a release as a follow up to a rmx by Block Barley.
In maintaining their MPM Beat 45 series, Hamburg producer Block Barley holla's @ Guilty Simpson for a remix of "Michigan Nights". Darker moods prevail and who better for back alley raps than GS?? The original mix came out as a limited 200 copies press on Barley's We Ain't Music imprint - so if you do come across it, snatch that up.
Look for this 12" to drop along with 2 other cuts around late Feb 2009. For more info, make syure to hit up the good ppl @ Melting Pot Music
Next up, a little treat from out friends @ Stones Throw:
Again, we're offered a rmx from a previously released riddim. This time, we're treated to a Oh-No produced, Whitefield Bros track American Nightmare rmx (can you cats see the pattern??). 1nce again, we hear GS @ his gun talk best as he rides this in his slow flow.
This freebie was released as a podcast. Do your self a solid and subscribe to the Stones Throw podcast.
With that said, music pls!
