The Hunt For The Gingerbread Man
"The Hunt for the Gingerbread Man" is the 4th full-length album from underground Hip Hop personality MF Grimm, an artist with one of the most powerful stories in music. Confined to a wheelchair after an attempt on his life, he went on to play an essential part in the mid 90s independent Hip Hop boom, recording with Bobbito's Fondle'Em label, working closely with MF Doom on the landmark "Operation: Doomsday" album, and starting one of the few totally independent label/distribution companies in NYC Grimm's new album "The Hunt for the Gingerbread Man" is based around the adventures of his criminal alter-ego the Gingerbread Man in the metaphorical world of Candy Land. A fully realised and highly conceptual album, it's also the darkest of his career, and finds one of hip hop's most creative storytellers reaching his full potential. With production by international beatmakers Stricknine (production credits include Thirstin Howl the 3rd & Rack Lo, Tim Dog and more), Prowla (Celph Titled, 7L & Esoteric's "Protocol"), Sammsonite (Thirstin Howl III) and Aksim (Block McCloud, Edgar Allen Floe), the sinister sound suits Grimm's style perfectly, and will be appreciated by fans who have always lauded the darker tracks on his earlier albums.
