After dropping "First Day Out" following his release from jail this past fall, Tee Grizzley immediately established himself as a strong candidate for the next king of hardcore hip-hop. With that in mind, it's only right for him to link up with Meek Mill, who arguably holds that title today. This past weekend, the ascendant Detroit MC did just that.

Meek posted an Instagram story over the weekend with Tee bouncing around to a track with Meek Milly's vocals on it. Meek's mouthing the words to his own verse, while the Detroit rapper is counting a wad of cash to the rhythm of the instrumental.

"Meek + Grizzley = ‍♂️," wrote Grizzley, whose excellent My Moment project dropped a few months back, on his own IG.

There's no word on whether they recorded something together, but if they did, there's a good chance it won't be on Tee's upcoming Activated album. He announced the new project a little over a month ago, but later said he never wanted any features on his albums.

“I’m never going to make an album that has [featured artists],” he told Billboard. “I am going to make singles with other artists and put those out there—I’d love to work with Bruno Mars, Drake, Kendrick Lamar. But when somebody buys a Tee Grizzley album, all they’re going to hear is Tee Grizzley.” So maybe he'll pop up on Meek's upcoming album Wins & Losses.

In any case, peep video of Grizzley and Meek in the studio just below. See Grizzley's Instagram post beneath that.
