Following a nearly-three-year bid behind bars, Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley is set to make a massive impact on rap and push his region to the forefront of street music. With his city’s scene becoming the Midwest’s new beacon of rap in recent years, Grizzley serves up a powerful comeback track and visual. Appropriately titled “First Day Out,” the artist’s new record finds him spinning a striking, intensely-personal narrative about real-life struggles and triumphs; he uses a four-minute span of bars to spit a robberies-to-Rolexes story that dwarfs most rapper’s “trials and tribulations.” Hip-hop is no stranger to tales of redemption, but very few emcees can introduce their message in a way so aggressive it makes Meek Mill’s intros and G Herbo’s lyrical records look tame.

Directed by 4Sho Magazine’s Nick Margetic and Everett Stewart, the visual for Tee Grizzley’s “First Day Out” is available above. The song is produced by one of Detroit’s most legendary producers, Helluva.
