1. Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson — “Reputation” (AUDIO).

    The Motor City keeps rollin’ full steam ahead as far as hip-hop is concerned. Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson got a solid collaborative effort out called Dice Game (available from the other MMG ), offering up quality Made-in-Detroit product like this cut, “Reputation,” a chiseled production that sparkles with top-notch craftsmanship and pride.

    “Detroit, the city’s got a wild rep/ That explains why over seven hundred thou left.”
