Shy Glizzy has been “So Awwsome” for years now. With his first release in this series, ‘Young Jefe’ back in 2014 he definitely hasn’t slowed down.

Shy Glizzy was born Marquis Amonte King in 1992 and has always called D.C. home. His father died when he was young and Shy started on the wrong path, serving time for robbery charges when he was 16. After time in a juvenile detention center, he chose rap as a release. His first mixtape, ‘No Brainer’ came out at the top of 2011, following up with his second mixtape ‘Streets Hottest Youngin’ towards the end of that year. After getting his feet in the game, Shy Glizzy officially changed his stage name to Jefe in 2016. That year was also the release of ‘Young Jefe 2 which included one of my favorite songs Rounds.
