Young Jefe Holmes! If you’re from the DMV area, chances are you’re a fan of Shy Glizzy. The East Coast spitter has created an incredibly loyal, dedicated fanbase from the jump, spitting about real-life experiences from his upbringing in the hood. Having sold drugs at the young age of 12, he’s come a long way from the streets to now one of the most favored rappers in the game.
With each release, Shy delivers personal, heartfelt records for the masses to relate to. Most recently, he released his newest project Young Jefe 3, spearheaded by lead single “Lonely Vibes.” The 18-track project features everyone from Meek Mill and and G Herbo to his own artists No Savage and 3 Glizzy.
King Ice caught up with Shy Glizzy on album release day, who had just debuted the project to an average of 4800 viewers in his Instagram Live.
I'm feeling the outfit! Is this the album release day outfit?
This is what I love to do. Nah, tomorrow’s the album release date outfit. All weekend, I'm throwing on that shit all weekend. Today, I'm chillin’. I got my jumper on, some Louis V’s.
I love the jumpsuit.
I love the jumpsuit too. This is my style right here. It's comfortable, clean.
Most expensive chain you own?
[whistles] I don't even know. I got chains that cost all types of numbers. Hundreds of thousands. I just lost my Jefe chain actually, I think my maid stole it or I left it at the hotel.
Dang, your mind went there?
My mind definitely went there, I fired them.
