Tee Grizzley follows up his excellent My Moment project with an aggressive new single “Teetroit.” While it seems like Grizzley has been popping up in the studio with everyone these days, he’s flying solo on this joint. “Teetroit” finds Tee Grizzley putting his hometown under the microscope, dropping knowledge on the Detroit’s less-than-ideal conditions and street life. Still, there’s an undeniable sense of pride there, and Grizzley recognizes he wouldn’t be who he is without Detroit. The 300 Entertainment signee paints a gritty picture of the Michigan capital, where he talks about some of the harsh realities that residents of Detroit have to face continuously including death, prison and more. “I grew up on Joy Road, there’s a lot of villains,” Grizzley rhymes. “How we gon put these choppers down, these people trying to kill us/Cause the puttin’ up prisons, stadiums for the Pistons/Only thing n*ggas ain’t puttin’ up is the pistols.”
Fans will be able to get a better idea of how Grizzley became the man and artist he is today through the lyrics, which are a placeholder while the MC gears up for his debut album release, Activated, in the near future. Earlier this summer, the Detroit native announced that he was working on finishing up his first studio album, which follows in the footsteps of his My Moment mixtape that he dropped back in April.
