This past summer, July to be exact, the artist formerly known as Shy Glizzy released a mixtape called Young Jefe 2. The DMV’s Marquis King is no longer going by the moniker Shy Glizzy, he now goes simply by Jefe. He formally announces the change by way of his new 8-track project The World is Yours.
Jefe spoke with The Fader stating:
I’m just rebranding myself. Reinventing on a whole higher level. 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 NBA YoungBoy (YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Ralo, Kash Doll and 3 Glizzy. Zaytoven produced the lead single, “One.” Check out the tape below on Spotify.
