Growing up, Shy Glizzy was often surrounded by violence and gang activities. Unable to avoid his surroundings, Glizzy was arrested on numerous occasions. From robbery to illegal possession of a firearm, he developed a track record with the law. After serving 2 years of imprisonment for robbery, plus various misdemeanor charges, Glizzy’s outlook on life changed. Not only did he completed his GED, but he also began pursuing music. At the age of 14, he started pursuing rap seriously. His moniker was derived from him being shy and Glizzy was an add-on (street term for glock). Shy Glizzy grew up listening to New Orleans rappers, the likes of C-Murder, Hot Boys, and Soulja Slim. He often expresses unwavering respect for rapper Easy-E.

Prior to dropping his mixtapes, Shy Glizzy made noise throughout Washington D.C after his beef with fellow rapper Fat Trel and Chicago native Chief Keef.

Due to its success, a remix featuring A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz was immediately put into works. The song became extremely popular on SoundCloud receiving close to a million streams in just the first week. The mixtape also included collaboration with Plies, Young Thug, Gudda Gudda and more.

Throughout the next 2 years, Shy Glizzy would release “Be Careful” with Glizzy Gang, “For Trappers Only” with Zaytoven and “Young Jefe 2.” Towards the ending of 2016, Shy Glizzy would change his stage name to Jefe.
