Fresh off his joint project Bloodas with Lil Durk, Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley celebrates all his success on the new song “Colors” and its video.
Produced by Helluva Beats, the piano-laced song digs into the Detroit rapper’s unexpected success, and the video was filmed in front of Joy Road in West Detroit, where he was raised. He spits his aggressive lyrics in front of a mansion and a private jet sporting some jewelry and a whole lot of money.
“Rose presi on my wrist, I can afford that/ Back in the day, I couldn’t even look toward that,” he raps.
He’s posted up in front a Bentley Coupe, reppin’ his home team in a Detroit Lions shirt.
His platinum hit “First Day Out” from his My Moment mixtape hit the Billboard Hot 100 and was voted as one of our favorite rap songs of 2017. His debut album Activated is slated to be released later this year. “I still find myself beating on tables and letting my soul bleed,” Tee Grizzley said in an Instagram post. “I know my fans want that hard shit, I got that too, but this how I get my feelings out and connect with y’all on a deeper level.”
Last month, the Detroit rapper unveiled his animated cartoon with WeBuyGold, Mr. Grizzley’s Magic Wraith. He plays a bear who happens to be a school teacher in the jungle. Mr. Grizzley’s Magic Wraith will run on WeBuyGold’s Instagram account for six weeks with a new episode every Wednesday.
Grizzley joins Jeezy’s Cold Summer tour, hitting 31 cities starting Feb. 7.
