MF Grimm Returns to Music Career after Leaving ‘Mayhem’
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."
...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.
