MF Grimm, ‘American Hunger’ (Day By Day)

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.”
