Detroit rapper Tee
The west side rapper had interest in music growing up, but it wasn't until he landed in prison in 2014 after a string of dormitory robberies during his stint at Michigan State University that Tee began feverishly writing songs. Upon his release in October 2016, Tee released his debut single "First Day Out" — which to date has amassed nearly 100 million views on YouTube and has been certified Platinum.
In the new documentary Off Parole, which dropped on Wednesday, we see a raw (and to some, familiar) side to the rapper that speaks to his childhood struggles and his life after prison.
Detroit producer Helluva, who both speak to Grizzley's power and relatability, especially within disenfranchised communities.
