Shy Glizzy has quietly been releasing a fair amount of music this year. Last month he shared "Too Far" feat. G Herbo and "Never Change" feat. Skooly. Today he drops another new track: "Real Nigga."
Shy Glizzy Feat. G Herbo
Shy Glizzy and G Herbo have each built fanbases in their respective cities through a consistent output of uncompromising, but charismatic street rap, so their new collaboration, "Too Far," feels very natural. Produced by Goose, one of the more underrated beatmakers in the stable of songwriters working with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan over the last couple of years, the dramatic instrumental feels small compared to Glizzy and Herbo's confident voices, making each and every line feel important as the last.
Shy Glizzy Feat. Skooly
In case you thought otherwise, Shy Glizzy is here to confirm that he will never change despite his money flow changing up. The rapper uses this as the theme for his new collaborative cut with Street Execs rapper Skooly. The record features rather quintessential Zaytoven production, as the two rappers go in over a keyboard-driven lackadaisical beat.
Run It Up
Jose Guapo Feat. Shy Glizzy & Boosie Badazz
Last year's "Run It Up" was one of Jose Guapo's biggest hits. The record featured Takeoff of Migos and YFN Lucci as well as a blissful trap production from Spiffy Global. Ahead of Guapo's upcoming tape Extravagant Trench Shit, the young QC signee has dropped off a new "Run It Up" remix, on which he has replaced the ATL rappers on the original with Shy Glizzy and Boosie Badazz.
Shy Glizzy Feat. 3 Glizzy
DC rapper Shy Glizzy might be more well-known for getting his chain snatched last year than his music at this point, but he’s fighting back against that reputation with the gritty trap tracks that originally got him noticed. He enlists 3 Glizzy for “Work,” a track that fits this mold nicely.
Cut It (Freestyle)
Recently reports circulated the web that Shy Glizzy was robbed of his chain while performing out in Memphis. The rapper reportedly lost his chain after someone shot up the venue he was performing in, and later, the purported robber was demanding $50,000 for the return of the chain. Glizzy has been relatively quiet on the incident, until today, where he's addressed the alleged robbery on wax.
Brodinski & Shy Glizzy
Brodinski continues to prove himself as one of the most innovative producers in trap, all the way from Reims, France. Funnily enough, he hasn't been working with artists in the genre for very long. He made his name as a house and electronic producer, but he's slowly began experimenting with more urban, especially southern trap-inspired sounds, and within the past year, he's worked with Bricc Baby, Bloody Jay, Makonnen, and Young Scooter. He's now back with up-and-coming DMV trapper Shy Glizzy, thanks to adidas's "Songs from Scratch" collaboration series.
Shy Glizzy Feat. Ty Dolla $ign
After a slight delay, Shy Glizzy came through tonight and released his new mixtape For Trappers Only. Produced entirely by Zaytoven, the 12-track effort features guest appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, Boosie Badazz, Yo Gotti, Sauce Walka, and more. Looking to highlight one of its standout cuts, here goes the Ty Dolla $ign-featured record “Lil Mama.” And just as the title depicts, listen as the two put on for their “lil mamas” over this slow tempo, Zaytoven-produced trap beat.
Dex Osama Feat. Shy Glizzy
Tragedy struck the hip-hop world earlier this month when it was announced that up-and-coming Detroit rapper Dex Osama had been shot and killed in his hometown. Dex had received cosigns from rappers like Meek Mill and he recently appeared on a remix alongside Dej Loaf.
Kidd Kidd Feat. Shy Glizzy
Kidd Kidd has been keeping the releases coming since he showed up on the 2015 XXL Freshman list, and today's he's teamed up with another member of the roster, DC's Shy Glizzy. "Oouu" uses the classic technique of using a wordless exclamation in a catchy way, a la Juvenile's "Ha".
U Hear Me
After appearing on Tha Alumni’s posse cut, “Forbes,” earlier this week, XXL Freshman Shy Glizzy decides to return to the scene tonight with some new music of his own called “U Hear Me.”
Tha Alumni Feat. Kid Ink, Bricc Baby , Vee Tha Rula & Shy Glizzy
Well here’s a treat for Tha Alumni fans. The West Coast crew, lead by Kid Ink, is currently working on a new compilation mixtape that will showcase the entire crew, and today we’re blessed with a new offering from it titled “Forbes” featuring Kid Ink, Bricc Baby, Vee Tha Rula, and XXL Freshmen Shy Glizzy. Produced by SAP, “Forbes” is a bouncy, paper-chasin' anthem that finds the Alumni crew trying to reach “Forbes” status, which is something we can all relate to. Listen to the new posse cut and let us know what you think!
Why You Mad
Fetty Wap Feat. Shy Glizzy
Even with multiple hits on the charts right now, Fetty Wap continues to pump out new music like he’s an aspiring rapper just trying to make a name for himself. Last week, the Jersey sensation dropped off the random track “1738”, and now today he’s back with another one, this time linking up with fellow XXL Freshman Shy Glizzy for “Why You Mad”.
Shy Glizzy Feat. Quavo & Offset
Shy Glizzy has always been very open about his Atlanta influence, and Migos are the perfect collaborators to match his infectiously catchy nasal flows. Quavo takes hook duties (an always successful formula), while Quavo and Glizzy each kick 16s. It's everything you'd want out of a collaboration between the two acts, and we're sure it'll get plenty of play in both DC and Atlanta.
Shy Glizzy Feat. Glizzy Gang
So far we've heard Meek Mill, French Montana, Gunplay, and many more go in over Rico Richie's "Poppin" instrumental, and now Shy Glizzy and his crew are taking their turn. While hailing from DC, Glizzy has always favored Atlanta-leaning production, collaborating with Zaytoven and the like, so Rico's record is pretty comfortable territory for him.
Johnny Cinco Feat. Shy Glizzy
Johnny Cinco of Quality Control affiliation makes a swift return after hitting us with "Knew That." The Hoodrich Juan Pablo-featured song didn't fare too well on the site, with a strong user-rating of "MEH," so we'll have to see if this Shy Glizzy collaboration is able to surpass that.
When I'm Bored (Remix)
Yung Simmie Feat. Shy Glizzy
Ever get bored? Need some ideas for how to cure your lethargy? Yung Simmie and and Shy Glizzy have a couple ideas for you, but one listen to their new collaboration should be a big step away from your dull existence. Yung Simmie is yet another Floridian rapper with some ties to Raider Klan who has since stepped away fro lo-fi Three 6 obsession to explore new territory (Denzel Curry being a recent example).
We Them Dudes
Shy Glizzy Feat. YFN Lucci
Wiz Khalifa's "We Dem Boyz" was a surprise summer hit, so who'd to say Shy Glizzy's "We Them Dudes" can't impact in the same way this year. Teaming up with Atlanta's YFN Lucci, Shy Glizzy's new record is a much more frantic squad anthem, with the hook being delivered with plenty more urgency than Wiz's beautifully lazy, "Hol' Up" refrain.
Shy Glizzy Feat. 30 Glizzy
Yesterday, the 2015 XXL Freshman list was revealed, and for the most part, people were happy with the selections (at least relatively speaking). While a few rappers seemed to have their spots on lock, Shy Glizzy was not necessarily assumed to make the cut, but thankfully, he and his prayer hands were smack in the middle of the cover.
Shy Glizzy Feat. Jeezy
Revisiting last year’s Law 3: Now or Never mixtape, Shy Glizzy decides to come through and revive his track “Funeral”, with an additional verse from the Snowman.
