Last month, Tee Grizzley‘s aunt and manager was murdered during a shooting in Detroit. Now, the popular Detroit rapper is addressing the untimely passing of Jobina “JB” Brown in a newly-released single and visual titled “Satish.”
“Look how they did Dex, look how they did Blake / Look how they tried to do me but got JB / Man that jealousy so real, man that hate so deep / Man that envy shit so real, you make it out the streets / You saw it wasn’t me and still shot, what she do to you?” Tee Grizzley reflects on the Helluva-produced “Satish.” “We was just winnin’, now I’m cryin’ at your funeral / But every tear I shed’s another thousand on your head, n***a / Now show your face and think I’m playin’ / Every tear I shed’s another thousand on your head, boy / Now show your face and think I’m playin.”
“Ayy JB, I wish I was sittin’ outside with you / And I was in that bank with you / You know your favorite rapper wouldn’t have never let them guys get you / I would’ve shot ‘em, left ‘em dyin’, leakin’ the street / Wouldn’t have ran, would smoke the rest and watch that man go to sleep,” Grizzley continues, looking back at the unfortunate run of events that took place on the day his aunt passed away. “And you think they came for her? / Man you know they came for me / They took my heart and brains, n***as know that I can’t think / How I’m playin’ with these drugs, n***as know I’m like Tay Keith / Eye’s bloodshot red, niggas know I ain’t been sleepin’ / But all these dead loved ones make it hard to sleep / All this anger inside make it hard to grieve / Ayy, all this nicotine make it hard to breathe / All these tears in my eyes make it hard to sleep.”
“My angel I know you always with me just like you was always with me,” Tee Grizley previously shared on an August 28 post on Instagram, delivering a brief public statement on his late aunt and manager’s passing.
