Tee Grizzley Partners with Coalition on Temporary Shelter (COTS – Detroit) on Mother’s Day

Ahead of Mother’s Day, Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley stopped by COTS’ Peggy’s Place and made a surprise donation, covering the security deposits for three families to move out of COTS’ emergency shelter. The donation also enables those three mothers to purchase necessary household essentials in their new homes. Tee Grizzley stuck around to spend time, talk, and take photos with families that lean on COTS and COTS staff members.

Detroit-based COTS is a private, non-profit organization that provides emergency shelter, supportive and affordable housing, and comprehensive support services for families experiencing and at risk of experiencing homelessness. Through partnerships, COTS assists families in reaching their housing, economic, health, education, and career goals as they overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for the next generation and beyond. COTS is also the first organization certified in Mobility Mentoring®, an economic mobility coaching approach that further enhances their ability to support hundreds of families in working towards economic self-sufficiency and create stabilized environments for a multi-generational impact on families.

ABOUT TEE GRIZZLEY:

Tee Grizzley laces his rhymes with the kind of stories usually reserved for the big screen. He holds nothing back as he honestly chronicles trials, tribulations, and triumphs on the streets of his native Detroit firsthand with a documentarian’s attention to detail.

Back in 2016, he returned home from prison and took the first step on the road to redemption. His debut single “First Day Out” went quadruple-platinum as he expanded his catalog with the double-platinum “From the D to the A” [feat. Lil Yachty], and gold-certified hits “2 Vaults,” “Jetski Grizzley,” “No Effort,” and “Satish.”

2021’s Built For Whatever marked his third straight Top 20 debut on the Billboard 200, Top 10 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, and Top 10 on the US Rap Albums Chart. In addition to praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The FADER, and many more, he has garnered support from JAY-Z and LeBron James, while Ari Melber graciously hosted him on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber.

He regularly streams GTA RP, Call of Duty and more, to over 1 million followers on Twitch. As a businessman, he runs Grizzley Gang Music to sign up and coming artists along with Grizzley Gang Gaming which hosts Grizzley World RP one of the most popular GTA RP servers.

2022’s visual album, Chapters of the Trenches, extended his viral “Robbery” video series and incited tastemaker applause with Billboard citing him as “Rap’s Martin Scorsese.” In its wake, he joined forces with Skilla Baby for the joint mixtape Controversy highlighted by “Gorgeous.”

He further lit up 2023 with Tee’s Coney Island highlighted by successive bangers “Loop Hole” [feat. 21 Savage] and “IDGAF” [feat. Chris Brown & Mariah the Scientist]. However, he opens up like never before on his 2024 full-length album—coming very soon.
