Anyone who’s ever caught ear of Daily Bread will know that Apollo Brown is one of hip-hop’s most polished beatsmiths; and if you’ve ever heard a rhyme spit from the mouth of Guilty Simpson, logic tells he’s one of the game’s most rugged MCs. So one can only imagine the treats in store for us with Dice Game, the forthcoming full-length collaborative LP between the sorely underrated pair.
Lucky for us, we don’t have to wait long to hear a sample. Fresh to speakers today, “Truth Be Told” is the first release from the project—and is an uncompromising hip-hop joint which roots Simpson’s honest and relatable rhymes in a drums-cushioned, strings-harmonized soundbed in Brown’s proverbial garden.
The album drops Nov. 13 via Mello Music Group, and it sounds like everyone’s a winner in this Dice Game.
