Rapper Tee Grizzley is reportedly safe after a gunman shot up his car on Detroit's east side on Tuesday, Aug. 20. The rapper's aunt/manager, Jobina "JB" Brown, 41, was killed in the drive-by shooting around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say Grizzley, 25, his aunt and a driver, 34, were in the area at 3 Mile Drive visiting friends when the shooting occurred. Grizzley exited the black Chrysler 300 a few minutes before someone opened fire on the vehicle. Brown was struck multiple times on the left side and killed.

The driver, who was uninjured, fled the scene. Police say it is unclear if Grizzley, Brown or the driver were the intended targets.

Grizzley, real name Terry Sanchez Wallace Jr., is best known for his song "First Day Out." He is a former Michigan State University student who signed a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2017.

Grizzley and his aunt were very close. She helped his grandparents raise him when his mother was locked up for 15 years and his father, Terry Wallace Sr, was murdered a year later.

He wrote this message to his favorite auntie on Facebook.com in 2017:

"My manager My Aunty My Big Homie if you die I can't tell the story cause I'm dying wit u".

Fellow rappers, including Lil Yachty and T.I., sent their condolences to Grizzley's aunt on social media.

T.I. wrote:

"They place the heaviest loads on the strongest backs... Our prayers & condolences lil bro... Stay strong... I’m here if you need me King ..
#RIPJB".

Yachty also sent a message of support: "Praying for my bro. One of my real friends. In my thoughts till I hear from you. Love you broski."

    It seems like she was the target. Sometimes people want you to suffer instead of taking you out. Ugh my condolences. ?

    I clicked on the link Sandra posted about his father's death and scrolled thru the list of names. In the notes for one of them it said "killed over price of condom" Wtf ?????

    My manager My Aunty My Big Homie if you die I can't tell the story cause I'm dying wit u". Sooo we should expect to here about some retaliation in 5. 4. 3. 2. ....

  • Karen Brady

    Who?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And this might not even be over. If he was the intended target, the shooter might still just lay low for a while, then come after him again. Now he's got to watch his back even more.

    Oh you're one of those.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • iWasteTime

    I'm waiting for an update to the Jermaine Dupri /Hov post.
    I know hell would freeze over first

  • KarmaBackAround

    R.I.P maam.. whatever the circumstance this is still a horrible crime!

  • KarmaBackAround

    Senseless..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Sad, aint it? People lose their lives over the pettiest stuff sometimes, especially in the hood.

  • Carrington

    I'll never understand this rap community.

    They either don't understand the difference between art and real life... so, they want to live T.I.'s LYRICS because they think that's what it's supposed to be - meanwhile, when T.I. finishes RAPPING about foolery, he gets into an expensive car and pulls up to a mansion in an exclusive, gated community where he's met by children who attend posh, private schools, have private tutors and, trust funds...

    Or, they see a brother TRYING to make it and the mere IDEA that a young brother might be on his WAY to some success - the envy that's indelibly imprinted into their brains says, "Kill him".

    Either way. I weep.

  • 100milesperhour

    The quote of him saying if aunty dies...morbid. Why say that about a young, healthy woman unless y’all were in street stuff or...this was a premonition?

  • Guest

    O. T - Liam Hemsworth has hired Laura Wasser aka "The Disso Queen" to represent him in the divorce from Miley Cyrus. Miley chile....good luck.!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's so true. [Most of] the smart rappers get out of the hood as soon as they can afford to. It's one thing to rap about gang-banging, but these dudes know it's not safe to live around gang-banging nigros.

  • Tinytoon

    There was a blind gossip item referencing him yesterday. Basically calling him a backstabber.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Carrington

    Exactly my point. 100 people surveyed, top 5 answers are on the board...

    "Name a time you've heard of pops stars or rock and rollers shooting at, and killing one another..."

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    that is just a future rap verse... these kids not trying to die.

  • Ni Ni

    Rapping is a dangerous job.?

  • Ni Ni

    This!!! But, people get mad when state that fact.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    All I know is tea is being spilled all over the place .... listening to Dame dash video now .... I keep trying to warn folks with the truth bout Jay .... if Jermaine ain't shyt he will have his day as well...

    This is so sad.

    Who?? I really must be old...

  • Ni Ni

    *shrugs*

  • Banka

    Yeah, I know but they like to fake the funk until they get themselves or a loved one killed, with all the gangsta talk and thug antics..... I miss the DeLa Soul type of rappers.....

  • sunni_daze

    You'e not old. These are microwave rappers, he'll be gone and forgotten next week.

  • Bree

    So the vehicle must have been tailing them. Someone must have thought he was still in the car to open fire like that. I feel sorry for his aunt. I wish they ninjas would stop missing their intended targets! I don't condone violence but if someone has "beef" with you, I can only hope said person deals with you, not me. Some things are not worth it!

  • Bree

    I still don't know who he is and by the looks of it, I don't want to know.

  • HelloToni

    And they ridicule men who struggle to put food on their table and work two or three mediocre jobs...or ride the bus...

  • chaisun

    Calling Jay a backstabbed?

  • sunni_daze

    I don't know who he is either.

  • Dollface

    It's a season for women. Seems like black women from communities all over have been being murdered over the past few years. Where I'm from, it's be at least 20-30 black women/girls murdered this year alone. I'm not used to seeing this much violence towards black women. Maybe we should start embracing those gender roles better than what we do. Let men be men or die like one.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    Let men be men??? She was riding in a car and was shot how is that being a man? Those two mother's in Chicago was standing on the corner guarding it so the gangs won't loiter how is that being a man?

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    Fried...

  • EasyBreezy

    What the hell happened in 7 months that now requires a messy-azz divorce? These youngins.'

    I see a gang war starting.

    Conspiracy nut!!

  • bb1812

    That list was very disturbing. And sad. And that's from 2012. In all seriousness, this is what Jay (& others) with means & platforms should be putting their efforts into. Start at the hood level instead of from the top-down. It's too much violence & death.

  • Dollface

    Um, probably because T Grizzy is a gangster rapper and I'm guessing does gangster shit. I would like to think he's not just making up shit in his music. His mother is in prison so I sure there's some thuggism happening around him. I just don't think it's a woman's place to be in the mix or vicinity of that type of lifestyle. But that's just me!

  • Latifah_theHealer

    I'm from the philly area and I always notice a trend that when women start getting killed, it seems to be in bunches. Truly sad.

  • Latifah_theHealer

    Miley might be sexually fluid and unable to be monogamous...?????

    Chile

  • Neva RuthLess

    You’re a misogynistic idiot. What do gender roles have to do with black women being killed? Die like men? You do realize that men have killed women since the dawn of humanity? You do realize that the misogynistic culture of African Americans is what has us African American women the number one victims of domestic violence and intimate partner homicide? Go away and pick up a book.

  • Neva RuthLess

    You know black women get killed with no gang ties right? You are a woman hating idiot who clearly knows nothing about the world.

  • imright

    blood sacrifice

  • Dollface

    I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about the ones that are being gunned down, because they're hanging around the wrong crowds with the wrong people. Bullets intended for others these women are intercepting. Black women are dying from heart disease and cancer every day, I'm not talking about them either. I'm talking too and about the women that are still infatuated with the drug dealing gang life type of mentality and as a result are catching bullets. Them the ones sis!

  • Dollface

    yea itch - if I know enough to type what i typed I must know women are getting murdered and die for various of different reasons.

  • rockstar2142

    Put the guns down folks please. R.I.P JB

  • TeamCowboys

    Not to be such a conspiracy theorist but sheesh ..he left out before she was shot up, could be an unfortunate co-winky dink or a sacrifice..either way may she RIP

  • LoveChild

    Don’t you know you can’t critique black males or black on black crime you can’t critique anything that has to do with black males or m@mmy BW and scrub bums get upset.

  • LoveChild

    Stop lying. Nobody is dissing men with jobs. FOH!!

  • EasyBreezy

    Chile.....

  • HelloToni

    Ooh they do,...when the ride the bus they call them bums...and when they work a regular job they call them lame.

  • LoveChild

    You’re lying and penis pandering to diss BW. . You sound like some old stereotype. I’m out here in California no black woman is calling a man “lame” works a regular job so stop the bullshit.

    People who make six figures ride the bus and the BART ( Bay area rapid transit).

    I always come for people who perpetrate bullshit lies saying that black women don’t want men with jobs.

    I know you’re lying because 80% of black homes have women as the breadwinners.

  • HelloToni

    You are funny...lying. Dumbass. You need to get in touch with reality..and not just your own view point or your own reality.
