Mf Grimm - The Downfall of Ibliys: A Ghetto Opera (2002)

Did I forget to post this before? That works out well. Listen MF Grimm's life is too crazy to tell as a story so here are the bullet points.

  • Grew up next door to Morgan Freeman
  • Became close friends with MF Doom
  • Got shot three times and lived.
  • Got shot seven times, became paralyzed, blind and deaf.
  • Overcame the blindness and deafness just in time to get sentenced to Life for "conspiracy".
  • In his 24 hours bail, recorded this album.
If it sounds clumsy or rough around the edges, fuck it: What's the most you've ever done in a day? Even though he raps about regular hip-hop drivel (hos and the exact degree to which he will soak them (super), caps and what part of yo' body he will bust them in), the album is so incredibly desperate you might even shed a tear.

    ! C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Newer Music\The Downfall of Ibliys_ A Ghetto Opera.rar: CRC failed in 10 Voices Pt. 1 feat. MF Doom.mp3. The file is corrupt

    Which is really upsetting, because the write-up got me really excited to hear this.

  6. this is pretty good, imo the MF EP collab with doom is better though.
