2017 Recap: Tee Grizzley’s Top Five Tracks

Published

on

This year was the coming out party for Tee Grizzley and his hardcore rap delivery. His single “First Day Out” became an international phenomenon, earning him the attention of millions of fans across the globe. He didn’t stop at his first taste of success; he kept pushing, releasing a steady stream of music for fans, carefully making sure not to oversaturate his growing pool of art. As 2017 closes, we look back at some of his best releases that truly show his ability to craft quality music.

Win

A quality piano riff can make for an incessant earworm of a song, one that causes tracks to play endlessly in the head for days at a time. This is the case with “Win” with the piano serving as a backdrop for Tee Grizzley to unleash a verbal assault like he usually does. Grizzley’s vocals help to offset some of the repetitions in the beat but they also compensate for it as well. He spits a dizzying assortment of bars spun in all directions, detailing his life and situations that make listeners nod their heads in agreement.

Teetroit

Anyone who’s been to Detroit and has gotten a taste of its street life knows of the horrors that many people have faced within. Grizzley chronicles these terrors, and the city’s bloody history, in “Teetroit.” The solemn single is dark, mysterious, and downright brutal. Its feature on the soundtrack for the film Detroit, which tells the story of the Algiers motel incident during the 12th street riot of 1967, indicates the power of music to intertwine with real events.

Secrets

It’s rare that we’re exposed to Grizzley’s more melodic side. On “Secrets” from his debut project My Moment, Grizzley croons about the skeletons in everyone’s closets; how do we keep them? This question manifests itself through a helping of verses where Grizzley tells about the secrets he’s holding and just how hard it is to live with that burden. The silky-smooth production sits back and lets Grizzley paint masterpieces with his words as the tools to do so.

Beef (ft. Meek Mill)

Meek Mill’s energetic appearance on tracks only elevates the power of the main artist(s). Tee Grizzley wisely enlisted the Philly-native to boost his own lyrical prowess on a cut that details what beef is and what happens to those unfortunate enough to partake in it with the two emcees. It’s a brisk cut that’s risky but ultimately works out fine. Both give standout performances that show they aren’t the people that you’d want to mess with.

From The D. To The A. (ft. Lil Yachty)

 

Being able to connect with a rap superstar, whilst you’re still coming up, and showing out over the same record can be a daunting task. In this case, Grizzley’s light years ahead of Yachty in terms of sheer rapping capability. How could he tame his self not to slaughter Yachty on the same track? Grizzley manages to succeed and pulls off the ultimate balancing act; not too excessively lyrical, but not streamlined enough to be considered mediocre. The track works to perfection as both artists play off of each other effectively, creating one of the best overall releases of 2017.

Professional Sports Agent Sal Jobe Takes Athletes To New Heights With Next Level Collective

Published

Sal Jobe, who is a novelist, actor, and professional sports agent, who was born and bred in East London, has gone a long way from the youthful passion-fueled athlete who played football all through school and competed in numerous competitions. He became acutely aware of the difficulties that come with not having an agent throughout the course of his athletic career.

“I had the physical ability and mental capacity to rise through the ranks, but something was missing. Later on, I realized that I needed someone who could pull strings and support me in my bid to be the best,” shared Sal Jobe.

This well-respected expert is now representing some of the greatest names in the business, driven by the desire to serve as a pillar for others. Sal Jobe, the CEO of Next Level Collective, a fast-growing organization that helps the world’s most elite athletes achieve greater heights, has earned a reputation for going above and beyond in connecting individuals under his wing with the chances they require.

It’s no wonder that Sal Jobe draws inspiration from well-known figures who have helped hopefuls achieve success. He’s looked up to powerhouses like Will Smith, Eric Thomas, and Michael Jordan from the start, not just because they’ve all overcome adversity and come out on top, but also because of how they’ve used their clout to help others.

Sal Jobe has steered a lengthy list of doers in the correct way thus far, and he continues to win the respect of countless sportsmen. His skills, as well as the fact that he is aware of the realities faced by athletes all over the world, have helped him create a respected reputation in the field. Furthermore, by his personal tale of perseverance in the face of adversity, he was able to gain the trust and respect of a large number of people.

Sal Jobe may be anticipated to do much more in the future years as he solidifies his reputation. Sal Jobe hopes to pave the way to success for more athletes and self-starters by establishing new agencies and publishing books that shed light on what it takes to achieve one’s goals. Regardless of the nature of his future endeavors, one thing will remain constant: the reminder that life’s difficulties may come and go, but they will not stay indefinitely.
