American Hunger by MF Grimm was a masterpiece of underground street rap. It was brutally honest, full of insight and learning, and delivered with the force and power of a hip hop master. So on the one hand, it makes me very happy to revisit it in the form of an album of remixes of songs from the original triple album. On the other, it makes me sad that I’m hearing this instead of new material from the great Grimmm. I hope that, like his former partner MF Doom, Grimm’s best days aren’t just in the rearview.
