#News Shy Glizzy’s Mixtape "Law 3" Hosted By Dj Drama On The Way

This year, Washington D.C. has seen a handful of young artists starting to turn heads. Fat Trel was signed dropped his impressive MMG debut in April entitled Gleesh. In just one summer Goldlink went from unknown artist to one of the brightest young stars in hip-hop after releasing his debut mixtape The God Complex. Now Shy Glizzy is looking to make the next jump after the release of his hit single “Awesome,” which peaked at No. 40 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and was remixed by A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.  “Awesome” caught the attention of ex-Warner Music colleagues and 300 Entertainment cofounders Lyor Cohen, Todd Moscowitz and Kevin Liles; hip-hop’s own version of the former Miami Heat “Big 3” of the previous four years consisting of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. In October when 300 Entertainment—a record label/management team—introduced “It’s A New Day” campaign, an artist they began to focus on was Shy Glizzy.

Since the release of Law 2 in April 2013, Shy momentum has picked up a ton of steam. He followed-up Law 2 with Young Jefe, which is the tape that contained “Awesome,” the biggest single in his young career. “Awesome” propelled him from D.C.’s underground scene to new artist to watch. Since then he’s moved on from his beefs with Chief Keef and crosstown rival Fat Trel and put his A$AP Mob-styled crew Glizzy Gang and his solo career at the center of his attention. Now gearing up for the third installment of his Law series, Shy held a private listening party last night (Nov. 19) at Engine Room Studio in New York City. Standing in between a plethora of members and associates from Glizzy Gang, DJ Drama and Rowdy Rebel stood Shy, wearing an all black A Bathing Ape jersey and a black and white skullcap. He rapped, word-for-word, every song played from the DJ Drama-hosted mixtape Law 3 while an estimate of 10-20 blunts were being rolled up simultaneously in different pockets of cyphers located in the room. Shy played his 13-track mixtape plus two bonus cuts for the attendees, shouting out verbal footnotes as the songs played. Cohen, Moscowitz, and Liles were all in attendance. Liles during the latter part of the listening made a toast in honor of Shy Glizzy. Law 3 is essentially a 40-minute plus turn-up on wax, boasting loud bass and showing off Shy’s distinct style that blends singing and rapping with his unique voice. “Law 3 shows my growth as a rapper,” said Shy Glizzy to XXL during CMJ week this year. “I don’t really like maintaining, so on every project I’m going to show you my growth. I’ve been in the studio every day working on Law 3, so I’m on a bigger level and my music is getting bigger and better. It’s going be hosted by DJ Drama, and I got production from Young Chop, Cardo, EA and Zay.”
