When discussing new goals in life, Tee said he wanted to make a life in gaming and shared how this hobby turned into a money making hustle.
Bored as hell so started a 200K+ hustle-
While talking to co-hosts Wallo and Gillie Da Kid, during the interview, the 28 year old shared that he had no intention of making a career out of gaming and was just playing for fun.
Tee shared that during the pandemic he was ”bored as hell” and didn’t know what to do with his time.
However he loved playing video games to kill time and eventually with practice got real good at it.
That’s when one of his friends brainstormed him into streaming his gaming sessions online for gaming enthusiasts.
Initially, it started out of interest and Grizzley was not hoping to make a lot out of it.
But as his popularity grew along with his subscriber count, his accounts started flooding.
In his words-
“It’s people making $100 million, getting $100 million contracts off that shit. They be making $1 million a month. All they do is sit there and play the game.“
Homeless friends making thousands a month!
Grizzley shared that he also encouraged his friends, who at the time were low on cash and needed an extra income- some who were also homeless, to start playing and made a way for them to get off the streets via video games.
“I got a lot of niggas that’s really from the trenches that got a PC, now they ain’t in the streets no more,” he added. “Now they making $20-$25,000 a month playing this shit. The way that I monetized it, I get paid from the server, ’cause you gotta pay to get in and we got like 90,000 members.“

During his initial days, Tee shared that a friend in Canada made him a server for free and put him on to games.
His friend suggested that he could make an extra $5,000 a month playing.
However, today the rapper has outperformed that mark and makes close to $200,000.
“Shit turned into damn near [$50,000] a week,” Tee quoted.
How does he make his big bucks?

“I get paid from the server because you have to pay to get in; we have like 90,000 members.”
Tee also broke down his monetization strategies and detailed on his income funnels-
“I stream it (Grand Theft Auto) on Twitch. I get paid from Twitch. I take the Twitch videos I already streamed, and I put those videos on Youtube. I get paid from YouTube,” he said. “And I get paid from the server. Then, you have sponsorships, ads, and all this s**t I get paid from that too.”
