Hip-hop vibes from the early 2000s are combined with modern Afrobeat and Reggaeton influences, as demonstrated in the Chris Brown-featured song “City of God. This fusion of musical styles creates a vibrant, unique sound that appeals to many listeners. Afrobeat and reggaeton elements contribute infectious rhythms and catchy melodies, and hip-hop influence gives the song a confident, seamless flow.

Tee and fellow Detroit rapper Skilla Baby collaborated on the remix of the famous song “Gorgeous,” which also features the City Girls, for the album. The remix adds a fresh twist to the favourite track, showcasing Tee Grizzley’s ability to collaborate with other artists and create dynamic songs. Additionally, the inclusion of the City Girls brings a vibrant energy and female perspective to the album, further diversifying its overall sound and appeal.

Other noteworthy joint efforts are the songs “Tried and Tried Again” and “Loop Hole,” featuring 21 Savage and Cordae, as well as those featuring Machine Gun Kelly and Finesse2Tymes. Tee Grizzley’s storytelling prowess and unique perspective on life on the streets have solidified his place in the rap scene as a trailblazer.

As he skillfully blends his vintage style with personal and professional progress, Tee Grizzley’s storytelling abilities, unique perspective, and beat selection on “Tee’s Coney Island” validate his place as a rising visionary in the rap game. A sombre tempo and a sobbing guitar accompany Grizzley as he reflects on life and how far he has come in the last song, “Charles Brown,” which is very moving. It ends with the words, “And keep goin’.”
