DON’T SLEEP: Apollo Brown x Guilty Simpson “Dice Game” [NEW PROJECT]

I first heard about the possibility of an Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson collaborative album back in 2010 (I can’t tell you about the other potential collaborative album that fell through) but it wasn’t a solid deal yet. When the project was finally underway I stayed mum. Then I received word it was completed followed by the advance copy. It was driving me crazy over the last three plus months that I had to keep from discussing it in detail. Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson’s “Dice Game” features 16 tracks of no nonsense, uncut pure raw Hip-Hop. The lone guest appearances come courtesy of Planet Asia & Torae. You can cop “Dice Game” today now that it’s in wide release (digital plus physical) via iTunes, Bandcamp, Fat Beats (vinyl) and UGHH (vinyl edition) right now. Don’t sleep!
