Tee Grizzley is undoubtedly one of the rawest rappers to breakthrough in the past two years. With a real background in the streets, he's one of the few that stays vivid with the street tales he speaks and presents it with authenticity in his voice. So it's pretty inevitable that he links up with Meek Mill for their new collab "Beef."
Back in June, the two were spotted in the studio and this record was briefly previewed. After a whole summer essentially, the song finally sees the light of day. The two of them clearly show great chemistry on wax. The two of them have made a record that not only fits both of their styles but allows them both to shine simultaneously.
On top of their bars, the two made an incredible choice of production for this collab. The simple piano progression on the beat has a very eerie tone to it that sounds like it's been sampled from a horror movies score. While the two rappers detail beef, they give vivid descriptions on the type of beef they've encountered during their life in the streets. While it's been the long-awaited collaboration waiting to happen, the two rappers definitely don't disappoint on it.
Over the past few weeks, the Tee Grizzley has been spotted in the studio with several different artists. He's also rumored to have been featured on a new Jay Rock song. Hopefully we get to see Grizzley on Rock's next project or even vice verse. The thought of Tee Grizzley and Jay Rock on the same song is bound to be an anthem for the streets.
Both Meek & Tee have had a great summer and this song is a perfect way to cap it off. While Tee Grizzley previewed a "First Day Out" remix featuring Meek, this song will definitely hold us over until that drops.
