Tee Grizzley Proves That He’s “The Smartest” On Album Ft. Big Sean, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Lil Keed

Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley has endured quite a few hardships, but the loss of his aunt was heartbreaking. Last August, the 26-year-old’s aunt and manager was killed in a drive-by shooting, and the person, or persons, responsible haven’t been apprehended. The rapper took some time to out of the spotlight following the ordeal, and while he did put his feelings on wax with his single “Satish” and returned with “Mr. Officer” featuring Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir, he’s kept mostly to himself as he crafted his Friday (June 19) release, The Smartest.

In true Tee Grizzley fashion, the rapper has created a record that is honest, heartfelt, and introspective. He calls on fellow rappers Big Sean, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, and Lil Keed, but for the most part, Tee Grizzley down the heavy lifting on The Smartest. You’ll hear Grizz’s maturation on this one, so give The Smartest a few listens and let us know what you think.
