Tee Grizzley Says Viral LeBron James Video Helped Triple His Record Sales
Tee Grizzley is having an amazing year. After catching fire with his hit song "First Day Out" and watching it climb the charts following the release of his incredible debut mixtape My Moment, LeBron James recorded a video working out to the song in the gym, and JAY-Z called it the best track out at the moment.
TMZ caught up with the Detroit rapper at the airport recently, and he told the paparazzi LeBron actually helped triple the song's sales after the NBA baller's video went viral. "My record sales tripled after Lebron put that up," says Tee in the video below. "Shout out to LeBron James, you done made me a couple dollars."
LeBron's video soon sparked a viral challenge that found people spitting Tee's lyrics for their own videos. As far as Tee is concerned, King James now has lifetime tickets to any show the Detroit rapper puts on moving forward.
