Album Review

Previewed on the first volume of producer Madlib’s series of Medicine Show releases, the final, official OJ Simpson album is just a bit more straightforward than the meandering mixtape that preceded it. Guilty Simpson may be the only one billed but this is really a collaborative effort, as the rapper doesn’t even utter a word until track three, following two tracks of Madlib’s Richard Pryor and blaxploitation-sampling soundscapes.

Approach it as a Stones Throw release that leans toward the Lib or maybe Medicine Show No. 1.5 and it delivers.
