Jay Rock & Tee Grizzley Rep’ Different Regions But Come From Similar Circumstances
Jay Rock’s Redemption offered 13 tracks of street-certified wisdom. The Watts, California native and longstanding TDE linchpin has released videos for nine of those songs. In the midst of that championship run, Eastside Johnny is back again with new music, and a video to match.
This time, Rock calls upon Detroit, Michigan native Tee Grizzley for “Sh*t Real.” The track is an example of just how much West Coast and Midwest Rap styles can fit, side-by-side. From M.C. Breed and DFC to the Dayton Family, Midwest Hip-Hop always had some sort of relationship extending out to the West Coast in terms of sound, subject matter, and grit.
To enhance the rhymes laced with a brief insight to their individual lifestyles, the visual for “Sh*t Real” spotlights a day in the life, which can be in the 313 just like it is in the 213. The visual opens with what appears to be a scorned lover taking literal shots at the back window of the duo’s Buick sedan. They take that car to a tucked away building with dozens of old schools and cash counters. Strange to some, this ish is real to artists having a booming 2018.
There are several Jay Rock videos, including episodes of Politics As Usual and Where It All Began, available on AFH TV.
