Grieves – Against The Bottom

Posted by on July 31, 2011

You know what I like about this guy? He doesn’t rap for the girls, he raps for himself. Sure, the video might include a hot girl or two (definitely not three that’s for sure) but you still catch him running down the street three guys deep in a flannel and skinny jeans. There’s something to be said for that – this is exactly what I mean about visuals providing that extra insight that heightens your understanding and appreciation for the music. Ben aka Grieves delivers real hip hop. Originally born in Chicago, Grieves later moved to a few other locations, providing him with a multitude of influences including the alternative sound he blends in with his rap. It reminds me a little of the lost art that fellow Chi-town artist, Rhymefest, tends to bring to the table (ps. do yourself a favor and watch Rhymefest “One Hand Pushup” video after the jump aka click MORE bc its gnarly). Maybe he’s more like Em in Stan, you be the judge…Take a leap of faith and give Grieves an ear.

This music video is awesome – I’m still trying to figure out how they did this although he does hold the world record for most one handed push ups in a minute.
