Fans of J Dilla and Madlib will be well acquainted with MED and Guilty Simpson. The Oxnard and Detroit MCs first linked up on Dilla’s “Jungle Love,” off The Shining, and have both since dropped collaborative projects with The Beat Konducta: MED with Bad Neighbor, which also featured Blu, and Guilty Simpson with O.J. Simpson.
Now, the underground heavyweights are teaming up for a joint EP called Loyalty, dropping March 16 via Bang Ya Head. The 10-track project is produced by Black Milk, Exile, MNDSGN and Preme (not be confused with the Preme) and features guest appearances from Blu, Joyce Wrice and J. Mitchell.
What’s more, the EP serves as a precursor to the full-length album MED and Guilty Simpson are set to drop later this year.
