Back in July, the artist formerly known as Shy Glizzy released a mixtape called Young Jefe 2. The tape augured the DMV rapper's name change. He now goes simply by Jefe. He formally announces the change by way of his new 8-track project The World is Yours.
“I’m just rebranding myself. Reinventing on a whole higher level,” Jefe explained to The Fader. “I earned the title Jefe. It comes with maturity, more responsibility, and putting more people in the position of being a boss in every aspect. With a name like that, you don’t have a choice. From the get go I’ve been putting on for the city. That’s already been established. As Jefe, Shy Glizzy, or whatever name I’m going by — as a person, I represent for D.C. in every way possible.”
The project features YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Ralo, Kash Doll and 3 Glizzy.
