Grieves w/ Sweatshop Union

Nov. 15
Grieves w/ Sweatshop Union
The Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $12, onepercentproductions.com

I once asked Grieves if he was the “McLovin’ of Hip-Hop” at a show in Albuquerque, New Mexico around 2008. This was before I knew that the outfit he was wearing was a joke. Dressed in a button-up shirt, tight pants and nerdy glasses, I wasn’t sure what to make of him. Once he grabbed the microphone, there was nothing funny about it. Rapping is serious business for the Seattle resident. Since signing with Rhymesayers Entertainment in 2010, he teamed up with producer Budo, released his debut album, 88 Keys and Counting then followed up with 2010’s Confessions of Mr. Modest. In 2011, he released Together/Apart, which is his most personal record to date. It touches on the topics of addiction, loss of trust and self-discovery. Grieves is currently on the road with Sweatshop Union and hits the Waiting Room stage Friday.
