If you've been following along with the saga of MF Grimm, a.k.a. Percy Carey, the rapper and comics creator who recently stepped down from his role as Marketing Director for Tyrese Gibson's comic "Mayhem" and Senior Vice President of Arch Enemy Entertainment, there's a new chapter to the story.

Carey announced today that since his departure from comics he has decided to return to the world of music at Day By Day Entertainment, the recording and distribution label he founded before his incarceration in 2000. Carey was given a life sentence at the time, which was later reduced to a three year term -- an experience he described in his Eisner-nominated Vertigo graphic novel "Sentences."

Carey's press release also made several connections between his new direction in music and his love of comics:

Carey is eager to return to music and believes that Day By Day, originally founded in 1999, will benefit from his recent efforts and consequently, make a strong return.

"I've learned a thing or two from the comic industry," Carey said. "I now realize Day By Day Entertainment is a super hero in its own right."

"It faces some of the same struggles and challenges any other hero would. It was created to save the state of music. Many try to stop Day By Day, but at the end of the story, all of those who try, fail. They always will."

Fans have awaited MF Grimm's return to music since the release of the triple-album "American Hunger", (Day by Day Entertainment, July 2006). The launch will provide fans a detailed look at Grimm's current and upcoming projects.
A promotional mixtape entitled, "Story by Percy Carey" will be available for free download. Likewise, release dates have been set for Grimm's next two projects. "You Only Live Twice" is set to release November 23, 2009 and "Supreme Excellence" on January 10, 2010. "Twiz the Beat Pro", one of Day By Day's newest members, produced both albums.

...To commemorate the launch MF Grimm will utilize Vokle.com's virtual townhall platform, which will enable him to take live video calls from an audience of text chatters. Those interested in taking part may access the forum from DayByDayEnt.com or PercyCarey.com. The event is open to the public and will begin Monday, August 24 at 7:00pm PST.
