Guilty Simpson just reunited with his original backer Stones Throw Records for Detroit’s Son. Nearly a decade after his debut, Guilty has built a career out of tireless microphone activity, from an onslaught of collaborative works, Random Axe, and plenty of features.

Something about Detroit’s Son stands tall though, and finds the Michigan MC refocused in his craft. “The D” is one such reminder. For the video, Guilty takes cameras with him across Motown, showing its post-recession impact. Although it may appear economically bleak, somehow Simpson finds the beauty in graffiti murals, endless blue skies, and a civic pride that has always added charm to his catalog.
