PREMIERE: Grieves “RX” Video

Seattle rapper and producer Grieves spits some deep, introspective bars while walking around Los Angeles in the new video for his single “RX.” The song is off of his upcoming studio album Running Wild, which is set for release on August 25th via Rhymesayers Entertainment.

“It’s funny how sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone to make peace with something. Especially when it comes down to that bubble in your chest that tries to scare you away from being yourself,” Grieves told MASS APPEAL. “‘RX’ paints an audible map around the complicated landscape of my bubble, my anxieties, and my pressure. This video is my way of leaving it all on the doorstep so I don’t have to carry it around with me all the time. Breathe it in… ”

Running Wild will follow up Grieves’ 2014 project Winter & The Wolves which hit No. 13 on Billboard’s Rap/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 57 on the Billboard Top 200. It is 15-track collection which was recorded in Seattle and Stockholm alongside Swedish producer Chords 

Grieves is set to go on a North American tour that starts on August 31st and hits cities such as Los Angeles, New York, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Seattle. Check out all the dates below and purchase tickets here.
