Benjamin Laub – better known as Grieves – is a Seattle-based hip-hop artist signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment. He emerged in 2007 with the independently released Irreversible, which led to touring with some of indie rap’s finest, including artists like Atmosphere, Macklemore, Cunninlynguists, Watsky, Chris Webby, P.O.S, and many more.

He’s since followed with four more full-length studio albums: 88 Keys & Counting (2010); Together/Apart (2011) which landed at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers and #106 on their Top 200; Winter & the Wolves (2014) which peaked at #57 on Billboard’s Top 200; and his latest release, Running Wild (2017).

In the summer of 2019, Grieves released a new addition to his arsenal, a new 8-track EP, The Collections of Mr. Nice Guy. In Feb 2023, Grieves teamed up with his long time friend Mouse Powell and made an action packed EP called WHY NOT?
