GM Grimm As Superstar Jet Jaguar Digital Tears: E-Mail From Purgatory
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Day by Day
GM (formerly MF) Grimm obviously has no love for the government-unsurprising, given his jail stint on drug charges. On his new album, which generally indicts the police, the feds, and the CIA, he often (but not always) pulls off a gritty, hard-hitting street feel. "Stable," with its repeated "you don't understand," sounds adolescent. But when Grimm spits (on the outstanding "Taken") that the authorities get "cheerful" when "we murder each other," it's hard to argue with the man in the wheelchair. Also gripping are a series of Grimm-produced tracks such as "Zero Point," which feature sparse beats composed on a simple drum machine while Grimm was behind bars.
