In this season we have learned a great deal about the support system that DOOM had around him. After talking with members of the C.M. Fam it became clearer to us that the person who was a truly important part of DOOM’s story early on did not really get a chance to enjoy that period of time. His name was Grimm Reaper, later known as MF Grimm. Grimm was a significant part of DOOM’s career early on, even sharing the “MF” moniker. Grimm’s story of how DOOM got to where he is and what Grimm experienced during that time is not just a cautionary tale for those who hug the block and try to make music. It is a testament to the love and drive that can push friends beyond what they can see as success for themselves and their families.  We felt it was only right to give Grimm his own episode to thank him for the friendship and love he had for DOOM. He was the support system when DOOM needed it, and was a catalyst to creativity that would allow DOOM and Grimm to create the music that people love to this day. Thank you, Percy.

Meteor Man, Gunmen and Posse all showed Kane had acting chops in movies.  Unfortunately, Kane himself had proven to be his own worst enemy.  After his time in Hollywood was over, Kane went back to Warner Brothers and found himself contemplating his future with the label.  He realized he wasn't as focused on his last couple of albums.  Either way he was happy he met and worked with all the artists he did during that time, including Madonna.  Who happened to be working on a new book...

Kane continues to push the envelope of Hip Hop by merging it with R&B and working with the legendary Patti LaBelle.  After touring with Patti, Kane took notes of what he could incorporate within his show once again proving he was more than a Hip Hop artist, he was an artist period.  He goes out on his 1st headlining tour with Digital Underground, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte & 3rd Bass.  Memories of backstage water gun fights and building with a young Tupac Shakur are takeaways from these more innocent times.

From 1990 to 1991 Kane released two more albums, "Taste Of Chocolate" and "Prince Of Darkness".  On the first, Kane worked with unique artists such as Malcolm X's daughter Gamilah Shabazz and Rudy Ray Moore aka Dolemite.  Kane was now at a point in his career where he was able to reach out to the artists that he grew up idolizing.  Artists like Barry White who he found he had much in common.  On "Prince Of Darkness", the posse cut "Come On Down" was to have a different line up.  Luckily Q-Tip was there to fill the gap.

Touring the world opened up Kane's eyes that he had a wider audience.  On "It's A Big Daddy Thing", Kane wanted to tap into that audience.  The creation of songs like "Smooth Operator", "Warm It Up, Kane", "Young, Gifted And Black" and "I Get The Job Done" not only have hilarious stories behind them, but also were made to show the growth of Kane as an artist.  Kane's popularity was expanding and it wasn't just amongst his fans.  He was now being called on for features by fellow musicians such as Rick James and Quincy Jones.
