    4 Songs Besides “First Day Out” That Prove Tee Grizzley Is Here To Stay #Detroit

    “First Day Out” was a global smash that 4 Sho helped break to mainstream America. Everyone from Lebron James to Jay Z shows their love for the track one way or another, and the song continues to rule over radio airwaves. It established Tee Grizzley as a powerhouse lyricist and excellent song crafter. Though he’s released his debut project My Moment and collaborated with Meek Mill for the spectacular “Beef,” some people still aren’t convinced that he’s here to stay. Maybe it’s because he isn’t a cartoonish rap personality that only gets spins because of his outlandish style. It could also be because lyricism scares people, so he’s delegated to people believing he’s a one-trick pony.

    That’s far from the case.

    The thing is, people won’t listen to words alone. But then, they won’t give things a chance without a stamp of approval either. For that reason, we’ve put together a brief list of tracks to check out if you want to hear the best of what Tee Grizzley has to offer. Check these out and further your Tee Grizzley knowledge today. You will surely become a fan, if you aren’t already.

    From The D To The A (feat. Lil Yachty)

    This collaborative track with Lil Yachty is perhaps one of Grizzley’s best releases to date. A heavy piano presence in the background plays off of the pounding bass, giving both Grizzley and Yachty something to really spit to. The duo trade verses with Grizzley bringing the viciousness while Yachty brings his usual brand of bravado and claptrap elevated to eleven.

    Standout lyrics:

    He came with you, so if he steal it fall on you, we on your ass
    Have your mans call his mans, make sure they ain’t movin’ fast

    Real Niggas

    Have you ever heard Grizzley harmonizing? Chances are, you haven’t checked this out. Grizzley switches it up here, bringing something new and showing his blossoming versatility. He lets you know the truth: if you’re real, you don’t have to say it. And that’s the truth, too many artists nowadays proudly proclaim their authenticity every other line. Grizzley prefers to sit back, play it cool, and let his resume speak for itself. That’s the right way to go.

    Standout lyrics:

    Fuck Curry I’ma rock with the Pistons
    Fuck Peyton I’ma rock with the Lions


    The movie Detroit, which came out earlier this year, recounts a racially charged incident involving black men and cops at the Algiers Motel in 1967. Grizzley decided to capture the raw authenticity and emotion around the incident and created a career standout track called “Teetroit.” The song is in a similar vein to “First Day Out” in speed and cadence, but that doesn’t stop it from climbing to new heights. It’s a lyrical masterpiece, heavy with fear and the confrontation of society’s injustices.

    Standout lyrics:

    I grew up on Joy Road it’s a lotta villains
    How we gon’ put them choppers down, these people tryna kill us
    Cause they puttin’ up prisons, stadium for the Pistons
    Only thing niggas ain’t puttin’ up is the pistols

    Straight To It (feat. Band Gang)

    It should be common knowledge by now that anytime Grizzley hops on a fast-paced beat, it’s murder for the production. This latest case, “Straight To It,” is no exception. Grizzley hops on the track and kills it, easily, as expected. It features guest verses from Band Gang members Paid Will and Masoe who each hold their own with Grizzley, as hard as that may be. This track may have been from 2016, but it shows just how high the bar that Grizzley set himself was before the release of “First Day Out.”

    Standout lyrics:

    Jump out the whip get his mans, rip them niggas flesh
    Free the real, keep the rest, choppa eat the vest
