    Product Details

    Summary

    MF Grimm (aka Percy Carey, GM Grimm and Superstar Jet Jaquar) first turned up on KMD's "What a Nigga Know (Remix)" on Elektra in 1994, and followed that with features on Kool G Rap's 4,5,6 album on Sony in 1995 and MF Doom's Operation Doomsday on Subverse in 1999, along with and a number of indie releases, before self-releasing his debut entitled The Downfall of Ibliys: A Ghetto Opera in 2002. Backed by an A-list of backpack producers: Cas (Readyrock), DJ Eli (Fat Beats), DJ Rob A, MF DOOM (Metalface), J-Zone (Old Maid) and others.

    Reportedly recorded in a 24-hour period while out on bail for drug charges, this full length stands up solidly against other releases of the day, Company Flow, Juggaknots, anything on Fondle 'Em, X-Ecutioners, all that New York backpack boom-bap that gave a post Public Enemy nation of millions something to bump. Originally released on Day By Day Entertainment and out of print for years, this is the official reissue.

    Comment: i have the original relase,but I also wanted to have this reissue in my collection,so I order it.but it was a mistake,because the booklet inside is all fucked up and credits for few tracks is cut off by printing mistake.i don't know is this just the case with my copy or the whole series is like that.anyway this is solid album by grimm, altrough "scars and memories" and his 12''s on fondle 'em remains his best collection of work to this day.

    Comment: I bought this album and took it back a week later...I don't know what Grimm is trying to do...far from what he is capable of...boring concept album...buy Doom's work instead...at least early Doom...his new shit is weak
