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.
Very few artists tackle relationships and emotion like Grieves. And the perfect example here is this video for, Faded.
If you vibe with Grieves, then check out his latest album, Running Wild, from where this song comes from.
Here’s the video for the single, Rx, which we featured just a few weeks ago, from his forthcoming album, Running Wild, which is due out in August. I will let the video do the talking here, but Grieves continues to connect with fans new and old with topics people can easily relate to.
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.
Grieves makes some GREAT music. This song is just another testament to that. Shreds also gives us some great visuals. It’s not your typical low budget ‘sitting-on-your-front-porch-rapping’ type of steez. His new album, Winter & the Wolves drops on March 25th.
I never post YouTube video as singles. I think that’s cheating, but I thought this single from Transit was pretty special. It also features Grieves on both the mic and on the production. Really dope content. You download the single on iTunes now and you can look to cop his album, Stale, on January 5th.
Grieves and Prof have so much charisma on this track. They dropped this Halloween preamble a couple of days ago and it’s definitely something you can play well into and after the witching hour. Really fun, playful, and all around dope.
We featured the single here just the other day and now we get the visuals from Grieves. All in all, I am expecting this new album, Together/Apart, to be pretty dope. This artists consistently put out entertaining and intelligent music.
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!
