Grieves- Together/Apart

One thing I’ve noticed this year is that there have been quite a few strong rap releases. Grieves most recent album, Together / Apart, is right at the top of that list. This is his first full length release with Rhymesayers, and it was definitely worth the wait. For those not familiar with Grieves, he combines rap with singing and smart lyrics, and even some rock sprinkled in here and there. Budo is the guy making all the beats for the album, and he does an amazing job as always. Grieves may not look like your typical rapper, but when he opens his mouth, there is no mistaking what is coming out of his mouth is worth your time and money. Together / Apart is a strong album from start to finish. It opens with the first single off the album, “Lightspeed“, which is a song about reminiscing on child hood and how people need to slow down in life. Another standout track to me is “Pressure Cracks“, which, as the title implies, is about pressures in life, whether it be relationships, fame, or expectations. Anyone looking for an album that has quite a bit of thought provoking lyrics, but also has a fun side to it as well, this is the one you are looking for.
