Hip-Hop. The name alone brings conflicting images of both excessive wealth and abject poverty. A culture that’s vibrant as well as violent.

Yet to many, Hip-Hop is seen as an escape from life on the streets, and the rise to the op of the Hip-Hop industry can be both cutthroat and brutal, leading many to prison, or worse, the grave.

So it is indeed a rarity for someone to see both the good and bad aspects of Hip-Hop – the dizzying heights and the staggering losses – and live to tell the tale. Someone who has had it all, and watched it come crashing down, only to rise from the ashes stronger than ever.

My name is Percy Carey, and this is my story.

In SENTENCES: THE LIFE OF M.F. GRIMM, writer Percy Carey tells his own personal tale about his rise, fall, and rise again through the ranks of the Hip-Hop industry. From the first time he picked up a microphone at a block party, to the day he lost use of his legs in gang violence, to his life in prison, to his eventual release and self-reinvention, Carey leaves no questions unanswered, telling an uncensored tale of what life is really like behind the scenes of the “Hip-Hop.” Joining Carey is artist Ronald Wimberly (PAPA MIDNIGHT, SWAMP THING) who beautifully illustrates this raw and gritty true story.
