Tee Grizzley Donates Hundreds of Free Meals in Detroit | HipHopDX

Detroit, MI –

T-shirt Grizzley has taken some time out from his latest album release to give back to his community, donating hundreds of free meals to his hometown of Detroit.

To celebrate the release of his new album Chapters of TrenchesGrizzley opened a pop-up food truck in his old neighborhood and donated 400 “Tee Grizzley Bowls” from Hoodbachi Grill to the community that raised him.

“Give away 400 meals to the community the day my album came out,” Grizzley wrote alongside a video on Instagram on Tuesday (November 8). “This isn’t nearly enough, but it’s a start.”

In the video, a line can be seen scaling around the block as Tee Grizzley and his team of chefs work tirelessly to pass out the meals.

“Brother, when you were in this position, you wish somebody would give you back,” Grizzley said in the clip. “Imagine how you would have felt if that had happened to you. That’s one of the main reasons I do it. No cap.”

Chapters of the Trenches fell on October 14. In a recent interview with Bootleg Kevthe Detroit rapper said the project’s narrative arc was meant to bring people into the world he was surrounded by growing up.

“I’m just walking you through everything that happened in the trenches,” Grizzley said of the project, which is divided into different chapters. “Not everything, but some of the things that happen every day.”

In a separate interview with HipHopDXTee Grizzley said it took experience and sensitivity to the lifestyle to make a visual album so heavily based on the hood.

“You have to have some kind of experience with this,” he said DX. “You have to have some kind of experience, you have to have imagination and you have to be creative. You have to have experience because you were told how people will react to certain things.”

He continued: “You have to have imagination because you have to put some great shit in there. And then with creativity, you have to have that because at the end of the day, how are you going to leave people wanting more of this?”
