Tee Grizzley is back with a brand new project he’s been teasing all week on social media. The 17-track project titled The Smartest is now available for streaming. The project dropped at midnight on Friday.
On Wednesday, Grizzley dropped the tracklist to the new project. The Detroit rapper has guest spots from Big Sean, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Lil Keed, and Queen Naija. The “Trenches” rapper also tapped beatmakers DJ Mustard, Scott Storch, Hit-Boy, Helluva, and more for production.
This is Tee Grizzley’s first project since the death of his Aunt who was also his manager. Jobina “JB” Brown was shot while in the car with Tee Grizzley in August last year. Grizzley mentions Brown in the song “I Apologize.” In the album cover art, the animated Tee Grizzley is seen wearing a JB chain in honor of his late aunt.
