Local Rapper Shy Glizzy brings a youthful exuberance to the mic.
In our first “DMV Spotlight,” Glizzy talks with Mr. Peter Parker about his D.C. hood, his new mixtape release date and the hardest part about being an up-and-coming artist in this area.
Hit ‘play’ above to watch.
Despite his age, Glizzy has had numerous run-ins with the law — probably spending more time in trouble than in school.
After earning his GED while incarcerated, he decided to try his hand at rap and dropped his debut mixtape — “Streets Hottest Youngin” — last Halloween.
He stays true to what he knows (the streets), but tracks like “Dirty Game” show that he’s aware of past wrongs in his short time on this planet.
Every Wednesday at 9 p.m., during the “New ‘ish at 9” new music segment, Mr. Peter Parker will showcase the best of the best up-and-coming artists in the DMV area. Check back for more.
