Biography

Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley scored a viral hit with his debut single, "First Day Out," which appeared on YouTube in late 2016. The song's raw lyrical approach and visceral storytelling connected with millions of fans and put Grizzley on the map. Within months of the release of his 2017 mixtape My Moment, the rapper was signed to a major label and on tour with 21 Savage. Multiple mixtapes and studio work like 2018's Activated cemented his reputation as a ruthless lyricist and a powerful force in his era of rap. Tee Grizzley was born Terry Sanchez Wallace in Detroit in 1994. Originally part of the Allstars BallHard crew and known as ASBH Tee, he served a jail sentence of nearly three years for armed robbery. After being released, he recorded the harrowing, slow-burning "First Day Out" with producer Helluva. The song was a regional hit and racked up millions of views and streams. Its success led to Grizzley signing a deal with 300 Entertainment, supported by major-label Atlantic. A handful of singles were released during the first few months of 2017, including "From the D to the A," featuring Lil Yachty. The commercial mixtape My Moment arrived that April and debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 44, despite no guest appearances to boost its profile. Following a few more singles, Grizzley and Chicago rapper Lil Durk released the collaborative mixtape Bloodas in December 2017. Grizzley's first official album, Activated, appeared in May 2018 and hit the Top Ten of the Billboard 200. Later that year, mixtape Still My Moment surfaced, boasting guest spots by Chance the Rapper, Lil Pump, Offset, and other rap stars. His second proper album, Scriptures, arrived in June 2019. Executive produced by Timbaland, the release featured guest appearances from YNW Melly and A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and debuted at number 20 on the Billboard 200. ~ Paul Simpson
