After the recent murder of his aunt, who was also his manager, Tee Grizzley hit the studio to process his emotions. Jobina Satish Brown was killed when a gunman shot at their car in Detroit. Grizzley was also in the car but managed to miss the line of fire. Following her death, the rapper paid tribute to Brown in his latest single, “Satish,” and with an accompanying video.
Offering a roadmap to their lives together, Grizzley raps about the moment he realized Brown had passed away. “Told my driver ‘Be on point’, he wasn’t hearing’ me / Those shots went off, I’m steady callin’, you ain’t answerin’ / You scarin’ me (Hello?),” he raps. “You saw it wasn’t me and still shot, what she do to you? / We was just winnin’, now I’m cryin’ at your funeral,” he says later in the first verse.
