Shy Glizzy


Coming on the scene with street singles that were both sublime (“Free tha Gang”) and ridiculous (“Awesome”), rapper Shy Glizzy first made a rumble around Washington, D.C. after taking on the hometown hero, Fat Trel.

Playing off Trel’s “Respect with the Tech,” Glizzy made waves with his “Disrespect the Tech,” setting off a cross-city feud that would be put to rest with the help of rapper Wale.

A beef with Chicago’s Chief Keef followed, then Glizzy began to focus inward, releasing a series of mixtapes including the popular Fuck Rap while forming his own Glizzy Gang, an A$AP Mob-styled crew of like-named rappers including Snipe Glizzy and Ant Glizzy. In 2014, Shy Glizzy gave the crew their first big hit when the slurring and infectious “Awesome” was released.
