Grieves floats over the smooth, atmospheric production, lacing “Beethoven” with confident delivery as he demonstrates a growing sense of self-awareness. And this is saying something, as longtime listeners will recognize the already introspective nature of his extensive catalogue of music. With “Beethoven”, the Seattle-based wordsmith plants his focus firmly on his own vision and craft, silencing and rising above the naysayers casting doubt on the man and his music. The record is littered with layered wordplay and substance, once again putting on display the depth of talent that exists within Grieves and the art he creates.
Hopefully this string of new music is a sign that we’ll be on the receiving end of a project from the Rhymesayers-representative this year, his first since the release of Running Wild in 2017.
“Beethoven” is available now on all major streaming platforms.
