*TODAY SHOULD BE A HOLIDAY AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED…NUFF RESPECT TO EVERYONE OUT THERE THAT KNOW’S WHAT TIME IT IS..SALUTE….
“MARCH 1, 2019,—Underground rapper MF Grimm, together with Day By Day Entertainment and Vendetta Vinyl, announced today the release of the artist’s latest album, American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 Trials, Tribulations, Humiliation and Elevation. The 11-track album, produced by Drasar Monumental, will be available worldwide across all major streaming platforms, beginning March 15. Once a date on the Roman calendar known for settling debts, ‘The Ides of March’ became synonymous with the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. The Ides plays a recurring thematic throughout the album whose first single, Still My Love, is available now.
American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 features digitally re-mastered vocals from MF Grimm’s 2006 release, American Hunger. The first triple-album in hip-hop history, American Hunger was highly lauded by fans and media alike.
“Most of us recognize the Ides of March for one of history’s most nefarious assassinations. What really resonated with me is that the crime was committed by someone close to Caesar, but still his legacy lives on,” said MF Grimm. “I know firsthand how trials and betrayals can take you down. But, these experiences led to the creation of this album – giving more depth to one of the greatest works of my life. This one is more personal, self-reflective and introspective.”
A New York native, MF Grimm has contributed to the hip-hop industry for more than 30 years as a rapper, producer and label executive. As an artist, he has released five solo albums, five collaborative albums and two compilation albums. MF Grimm has continued to create despite being paralyzed from the waist-down, the result of a shooting in 1994.
MF Grimm previously partnered with Drasar Monumental on a three-part conceptual series of albums including Good Morning Vietnam (2012), Good Morning Vietnam 2: The Golden Triangle (2013) and Good Morning Vietnam 3: The Phoenix Program. The EPs were released under Vendetta Vinyl & Day By Day Entertainment.
In addition to digital, fans may purchase the single Still My Love on 7-inch at VendettaVinylVietnam.com. Other American Hunger: Rebirth Vol. 2 tracks include Fuck You, American Hunger (?), Streets, Give, Right There, Page Six, The Whole World, Children of Abel, Simple Rhyme and Lift Me Up.
