Tee Grizzley Revels in His Success on New Song “Colors”
It's now been well over a year since Tee Grizzley exited a jail cell and recorded the song that would change his life forever. Now, he's getting shoutouts from Jay-Z, taking pictures with LeBron James and going on tour with Jeezy. He's also just released "Colors," a new single that finds him celebrating all of his relatively new success.
Laced with a piano-heavy Helluva Beats instrumental, "Colors" finds Tee juxtaposing where he was and where he is now, reveling in the rewards of success. For Tee Grizzley, that means cruising Detroit in his new Wraith and posting up with a baddie.
"Rose Presi' on my wrist, I can afford that/Back in the day, I couldn't even look toward that/When I was broke, I couldn't even look toward the bitch/Now she suck my dick and don't say shit when I record the bitch," he spits on the bouncy track.
One day after dropping "Colors," Grizzley released a visual for the song. In the video, he hops of what looks like a private jet with a bag filled with what seems like pounds of money. From there, he hits the trap before eventually hanging out with Lil Durk.
There's no word on where this track will end up, but there's a chance it lands on his forthcoming debut album, Activated. Speaking with XXL last month, Tee said he wanted to separate himself from the pack and be bigger and better than ever throughout the rest of 2018.
"I'm gonna just try my best to set myself apart and cut off the access," he explained at the time. "I'm cool with a lot of rappers. They can reach out to me, and I rock with them because we're all new in the industry. 2018 is that new shit. I don't know those niggas no more. I'm about to go crazy, wave about to be super big. I ain't kicking it with y'all niggas. Y'all the competition."
