Tee Grizzley Reveals The Album That Changed His Life:
Tee Grizzley pays homage to a New York veteran.
In a new interview with Pigeons and Planes, Tee Grizzley spoke about his come-up, listening to Detroit hip-hop with his uncles and basking in the familiarity within the lyrics. When asked about the album that “changed his life,” Tee Grizzley reflected on a moment before going in depth:
“It’s crazy cause it was recent…it was Loso’s Way by Fab. That’s the first album that I heard where I listened to a whole album and didn’t have to skip no songs…He just motivated me that you could make a whole album all the way through. It clicked because like I said I didn’t listen to people’s cds before…This was like the real first album where I listened to every song.”
It’s always interesting to hear an artist talk about the album as an art-form, especially in this era of singles and instant streaming. For those who don’t know, Loso’s Way (2009) was a loosely conceptual album similar in narrative to Jay-Z’s American Gangster. Stay tuned for some upcoming music from Tee Grizzley and Fabolous, who were recently seen in studio together.
