Shy Glizzy & Glizzy Gang feat. 3 Glizzy & Goo Glizzy – Mafioso
DMV rap collective Glizzy Gang , led by Grammy nominated artist Shy Glizzy, release a new single and music video for “Mafioso”. Backed by an addictive hook from Glizzy Gang “Jefe” Shy Glizzy, the track’s well-crafted production is backed by hard-hitting verses from Glizzy Gang members 3 Glizzy and Goo Glizzy. For the cinematic video, the gang links up for a mob-inspired visual where the rappers pose as vintage versions of their inner gangsters. The “Mafioso” release comes as Shy Glizzy & Glizzy Gang members gear up for the release of their compilation tape Don’t Feed The Sharks to be released Friday September 3rd and will include previously released single “Ridiculous” featuring GG’s newest signee No Savage.
Fans have been awaiting a new release from Shy since his 2020 album release Young Jefe 3. Now, Shy leads the charge in breaking some of the hottest rappers out of Washington, D.C (3 Glizzy, Taliban Glizzy, Goo Glizzy, and No Savage) to the rest of the world. In addition to pushing the DMV culture forward, he also aims to spread the wealth. This past week, Shy announced the “Don’t Feed the Sharks” Pitch Competition which will be a shark-tank style pitch competition where small business owners and entrepreneurs have the chance of winning $10,000. As Glizzy Gang continues to grow and evolve, there will certainly be no shortage of heat out of the DMV.
ABOUT SHY GLIZZY:
The past decade of DMV rap belonged to Shy Glizzy. Over the course of a slew of singles, mixtapes, and the critically praised full-length Fully Loaded, he has posted up 100 million-plus total streams and even notched a co-sign from Beyoncé who bopped to “Awwsome” in 2015 at Global Citizen Festival. He also garnered a GRAMMY® Award nod for appearing on Goldlink’s triple-platinum “Crew.” His bold and bruising lyricism continues to incite tastemaker applause. Of his 2019 project Covered N’ Blood, Pitchfork commented, “As with all of his best work, the D.C. rapper’s latest finds him grappling with trauma, haunted by the specter of death at every turn.” Meanwhile, The Washington Post has applauded his “artfully pressurized style of mouth-music that keeps you listening close, with every syllable prompting a balancing act in your brain.” The FADER has even called his hooks “silky smooth.” All signs point to the next decade of the DMV belonging to him as well.
