Following the recent spate of rappers getting shot, Detroit native Tee Grizzley advises his peers to get their affairs in order.
Tee Grizzley took to Instagram to advocate for artists investing in life insurance so they can protect their family and assets in the case of a sudden tragedy or death.
So look right, as rappers, as successful Black men from the trenches, we the No. 1 target and the least prepared. I feel like everybody should have life insurance. I need everybody to go get life insurance if you don’t got it. If you got kids, I need you to get a will set up for your kids so, God forbid anything happen, but if anything happen your people ain’t bold after you gone because you weren’t prepared and have your sh*t together.
The “First Day Out” rapper continued that more than ever before, rappers are catching bullets.
We’re the No. 1 target and we’re the least prepared bro. I need us to get on top of this sh*t, get life insurance, we need get to our wills right so the next generation don’t have to go as hard as we did and have to go through everything we did.
In related news, Tee Grizzley’s new album “Built for Whatever,” which features appearances from Big Sean, Lil Durk, Young Dolph, G Herbo, the late King Von, and more, is now available. The effort is the Detroit rapper’s seventh project since 2017.
Explaining the album’s title, Grizzley said it encapsulates his life.
The title of this album is my whole life in one sentence. The songs on the album and the things I refer to lyrically on each track reflect pieces of my real life. The name of this album is exactly what I am — built for whatever.
