Editorial Reviews

MF Grimm (aka Percy Carey, GM Grimm and Superstar Jet Jaquar) first turned up on
KMD s What a Nigga Know (Remix) on Elektra in 1994, and followed that with features
on Kool G Rap s 4,5,6 album on Sony in 1995 and MF Doom s Operation Doomsday on
Subverse in 1999, along with and a number of indie releases, before self-releasing his
debut entitled The Downfall of Ibliys: A Ghetto Opera in 2002. Backed by an A-list of backpack
producers: Cas (Readyrock), DJ Eli (Fat Beats), DJ Rob (Ground Original), MF
DOOM (Metalface), J-Zone (Old Maid) and others.
Reportedly recorded in a 24-hour period while out on bail for drug charges, this full length
stands up solidly against other releases of the day, Company Flow, Juggaknots, anything
on Fondle Em, X-Ecutioners, all that New York backpack boom-bap that gave a post
Public Enemy nation of millions something to bump. Originally released on Day By Day
Entertainment and out of print for years, this is the official reissue.

He recorded this LP in 24 hours and much like the film "25th Hour" he did this whole thing right before he went to jail. This is very evident on many of the tracks on "Iblys." Dark, moody, sharp. Grimm's tounge spits venom as he faces the next hours, days and mounths ahead of him. This LP reflects a man falling from grace and trying to find himself... a single word, redemption. MF Doom execs the project and gets behind the boards on several tracks. Not an amazing album, but a dope album none the less.

Features a few tracks produced by MF Doom and a couple of features from the great man (Foolish, I Hear Voices). My other favourite tracks include Together, which mixes a child-like, nursery-rhyme-style chorus with distinctly adult lyrics concerning chopping traitors up into little pieces. MF Grimm is at his best when blurring the lines between child-like wonder and the harsh realities of growing up in a tough urban environment. Having said that, Teach the Babies really, really sucks.

I think this was a great release from Grimm, also a great debut! I wish him and DOOM still worked together, their music is still good, but much better when together!! You can really hear the hunger in this album!! If your a Grimm fan, this is a must have!!!!
