AceShowbiz - Tee Grizzley has updated fans about his and his family's conditions after his Los Angeles home was burglarized. When addressing the incident, the "First Day Out" rapper assured his online devotees that they are all "good."
"I appreciate everybody reaching out. I'm good, my family good, thank God," the 28-year-old said in a video shared on Instagram on Saturday night, September 17. He then made references to PnB Rock, who was fatally shot during a robbery at a Los Angeles restaurant earlier this month, as well as King Von, who was killed in a 2020 Atlanta shooting.
"I need yall to do one thing for me, send a prayer up for PnB Rock and his kids. King Von, his kids, and all the kids out here have to grow up without their pops," Grizzley noted. "I had to go through that. I grew up without my pops. He was killed, and it ain’t easy at all."
"We got to watch what we're speaking into existence. I know we look at it like we're just making music, and it's art, but these words are powerful, bro," the emcee continued, reminding other artists to be mindful of the things they say in their music. He added, "Just like we speak some good s**t into existence, we can speak some bad s**t into existence. So we really gotta be careful what we're saying about ourselves when we're making this music."
Grizzley was robbed of over $1 million in cash and jewelry in the break-in that occurred two weeks ago. Per TMZ report, law enforcement officers said the thieves entered his property by smashing a window. The home itself is located in the affluent Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch, the wealthiest neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley.
The timing of the ordeal coincided with the release of Grizzley's single "Robbery". At that time, he announced on Twitter, "ROBBERY 1 is finally on streaming so go run that up and I know y'all been waiting for Part 4 so stay tuned cuz that's coming REAL soon and it's only the first CHAPTER OF THE TRENCHES by Tee Grizzley ."
