LSD is perfect double entendre for hip hop duo Leonard Charles and Guilty Simpson. The pair, performing as The Leonard Simpson Duo, drew on psych-rock samples from the 60s and 70s as well as jazz and African music for the album, and Heavy Organ is a fine example of that.
On Heavy Organ, Guilty raps over an acid rock sample full of phasing, guitars, and gritty drums. For the visuals, directed by Adi Dick, we get a kaleidoscope of typography and colours spelling out the name of the album. Lootpack’s Wildchild also joins Guilty to complete the track.
“I wanted to send more of a message on this record […] A lot of times people rap about things that just aren’t that important. Of course, I still have some hardcore songs on there, but I wanted to spend time addressing more of what’s important to me—like family, friendships, and relationships. I’ve dedicated so much of my time to the self-absorbed raps. It was good for me to make something that sticks to your ribs a little bit.”Guilty Simpson on the album.
