Last summer, Tee Grizzley’s aunt and manager, Jobina Brown, was fatally shot in Detroit. Now, a $2500 reward is being offered by the Crime Stoppers of Michigan for information that leads to an arrest for the murder.
The shooting occurred last August while the rapper and his Brown were in his Cadillac Escalade. As Grizzley was getting out of the passenger seat, the shooter approached on foot and pulled the trigger hitting Brown in her left side. Sources reported that three to four shots were fired. Following the shooting, Brown was rushed to the hospital where she later died from her wounds.
The rapper took to his Instagram account on Aug. 23 to share a video of Brown smiling at the camera.
”Since I was 12, we been going everywhere together how you gone go to heaven without me????” he wrote in the caption. “Idek what to say JB I just wanted to show the world yo smile I love you so much.”
Grizzley opened up about his aunt last year. The “First Day Out” rapper talked about how she was the only one who believed in his music career and even quit her job to manage him.
“They feel like it should’ve been me. And it should’ve been, because it was for me,” he told Bigg Dawg Blast. “A lot of ‘em just wouldn’t take me serious. [They were] like, ‘You better go get a job. What you tryin’ to rap for?’ and all this other stuff,” he continued. “She believed in me. She was the only one … She quit her job to start managing me … She was the only one I could trust for real.”
Grizzley recently announced his upcoming project, The Smartest, which will include a tribute to his late aunt.
