MF Grimm has reason to be hungry. In the early '90s, when his first career took off, the Manhattan MC was shot seven times, leaving him paralyzed, blind, and in a wheelchair. He later partnered with MF Doom until a bitter falling out. Then, a drug charge put him in prison. On this triple CD of 60 tracks, Grimm (who can see again!) preaches, pleads, and confesses, fighting betrayals over vivid lo-fi beats. A blunt defeatist where Doom's a dreamy absurdist, he adheres to one motto (from track 32): "Agony is the key to a happy life."
