With the announcement of a new website and merchandise launch, Shy Glizzy is officially changing his name to Jefe.
While this is a name fans of D.C. artist are already familiar with from the rappers Young Jefe series, the new tinker reflects a larger lifestyle change for the “Awesome” Rapper. “I’m just rebranding myself” , Jefe tells The FADER. “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.”
“One” is the first single from Jefe’s forthcoming The World Is Yours EP , which releases this Friday, 1/6 via Glizzy Gang. The track was produced by Zaytoven, making it the latest in a long line of hits from the frequent collaborators. With features from YoungBoy Never Broke Again, 3 Glizzy, Ralo, and Kash Doll, Jefe’s The World Is Yours EP is available for pre-order now. With a new name and the same infectious sound that’s brought us hits like “White Girl“, “First 48“, and “Bankroll“, just to name a few, It seems Jefe is positioning himself for 2017 takeover. If “One” is any indication Jefe’s The World Is Ours EP will be yet another impressive showcase of his natural bravado and talent.
