Greater Than – Fine Wine (Video)

I just got done listening to this  Greater Than’s self-titled album, this afternoon.  I thought it was really quite boom-bastic.  For those of you who are not in the know, Greater Than is made up of Seattle artists, Grynch, Fearce Vill, and Grieves.

The first thing I want to make mention of is that Grieves does not rhyme on the album, but produces.  And his chops behind the boards are impressive.  I mean he crafted some delicious rhythms.  I didn’t realize that he could get down like that.

Grinch and and Fearce Vill definitely represent well on the lyrical level as well.   Both lyrically and visually catching bodies over the track Fine Wine.  If you are feeling this joint than undoubtedly you will feel the rest.

Single You Out: Grieves – Rx

Grieves is one of those artists that has the ability to connect with his audience. His emotion fills his music and that makes him extremely relatable to a lot of people. Rx is a deeply honest reflection on the safety we seem to find in our addictions. The prescription can also be found for for those that have been missing his music. That is at least until his forthcoming album, Running Wild, drops later this summer.

Enjoy!

Single You Out: Grieves – Blood Poetry

Grieves’ second single from his forthcoming album Together/Apart is certainly on par with what I have come to expect from this emcee.  The cut is produced by Budo .  I really like the piano driven track.  It really goes with Grieves personal and conversational style.  Smile For The Blade was my favorite track from 2010 and Blood Poetry is right on par with that.  Definitive winner!
