Although Grieves has a propensity to do things that are possibly inappropriate/borderline creepy, from all accounts he’s a pretty good guy who works diligently at making his Rhymesayers brand of hip-hop. Credit is owed where credit is due, and his latest LP, Together/Apart, has been faring very well in the CMJ hip-hop chart, charting at No. 2 three weeks in a row.
 
The only thing better than a No. 2 spot is a No. 1 clincher, so here’s hoping that his newly announced first headlining tour will push the self-described Justin Bieber lookalike onward and upward. Also in the ring with him will be producer buddy Budo, performing to the largest venues they’ve seen yet, as well as brethren Prof and Seattle “comedy rapper” (??) the MC Type. The wily gang of four kicks off the Together/Apart tour in Canada September 16 before tackling the Midwest, Southwest and West Coast. No love for the East Coast yet.
