Grieves—not to be confused with Grimes—is a Seattle MC who released his latest LP, Winter & The Wolves, earlier this year on Rhymesayers. Sitting solidly somewhere between Macklemore and Slug, Grieves has been touring non-stop since the release of his first and biggest record for Rhymesayers, 2011’s Together/Apart. Below, A.V. Club readers can check out the conscious stylings of the rapper courtesy of his new “Recluse” video, which expands on Winter & The Wolves’ themes of survival, addiction, and heartbreak.
