T.R.O.Y. Guest Blogger w/MF Grimm

Welcome to another edition of Guest Blogger with none other than MF Grimm. Whether you know him as MF Grimm, Grim Reaper, Jet Jaguar or Percy Carey; his story truly is a feel good one.  In 1994, Grimm survived a murder attempt where he was shot seven times and three times in an earlier murder attempt in 1986. As a result of the 1994 attack, he was deafened, blinded, and paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors predicted that he would suffer nulled senses and be paralyzed for the rest of his life. Grimm recovered full vision, hearing, and speech ability, but is still confined to a wheelchair. In 2000, he faced narcotics and conspiracy charges, giving him life imprisonment.  He paid a one-day bail of $100,000, recording The Downfall of Ibliys: A Ghetto Opera in those twenty-four hours.

During his stay in jail, Grimm studied law. After filing many counter-suits, he was able to reduce his sentence to three years and he was released in 2003.  So while many know him as the man who ripped “Take ‘Em To War,” I know him as the man who overcame the impossible. MF Grimm’s Top 5 Collabos and Top 5 Albums lists, plus some video and audio, after the jump.
