Shy Glizzy unleashed his Young Jefe mixtape back in 2014. Since then, he has given us his Law 3 mixtape and Glizzy Gang’s For Trappers Only which featured production from Zaytoven. Zaytoven is one of the producers featured on Glizzy’s new Young Jefe 2 mixtape. With a total of 12 tracks, Glizzy shows growth from previous releases.
Glizzy let go of a few song before the release of this mixtape. “Rounds” and “You Know That” are a few of the songs released thus far, but Glizzy will soon go into the visuals. Young Jefe hosted Glizzy’s breakout track of “Awwsome” and took his grind to another level. For this mixtape, Glizzy focused more on the lyrical aspect and not the radio aspect.
“Bankroll” is a song dedicated to the late Bankroll Fresh and sits as the third track on the mixtape. “I got street money on me like I’m Bankroll,” Glizzy says in the chorus. It’s one of the more uptempo tracks, while also in dedication to the late rapper.
From here, Glizzy can go a number of various ways. Himself and Fat Trel connected on the track “Checklist,” putting an end to the beef between the two D.C. natives. The positive energy was a good look for D.C. and music as an entity. Glizzy continues to show his growth as a man and artist as he continues to maneuver his way in the industry.
