Download New Album: Shy Glizzy – Covered N Blood
Shy Glizzy comes theough with a brand new smashing hot and dope studio album, packed with 12 amazing and solid tracks titled “Covered N Blood“. The LP is a follow-up to his Fully Loaded project, which dropped last October.
“It’s a deep, deep album,” Glizzy told HipHopDX earlier this month. “It’s a really deep album. A lot of my music is like a diary. This one is about what I’ve been going through the last few months. Shy Glizzy’s introduction to most of the world came when he sent shots in Chief Keef’s direction back on 2012’s “3 Milli.” It was a calculated gamble, over the beat for Keef’s “3Hunna,” and not an uncommon gesture; typically, when an artist rises to the gargantuan level of acclaim that Keef did in so little time, those trying to achieve similar success attempt to deface them. Some would call that clout-chasing in 2018, but, as it occasionally does, the jab ended up working in favor of a then 18-year-old Shy. The D.C. native absorbed the attention he got from that, and in the process, became one of the most nationally respected artists to come out of The District — especially at a time when the city wasn’t being scanned for its rap talent outside of the more mainstream-leaning Wale and Tabi Bonney towards the top of this decade.
Since his debut tape No Brainer was released in 2011, Shy Glizzy has had 11 solo projects drop and soundtrack what life is like in one of rap’s most underrepresented national regions. Last December — a dead zone for releases during End of Year List SZN — he shared one of his most well-rounded projects to date with Quiet Storm. The 18-track effort was sparse on features and left the necessary space for Shy to display how he’d gained more control of his shrill-like harmonizing (“Shank”), diversified his toolbox of flows (“More Clips”), and continued to add onto his deep collection of contagious self-boosting raps (“Get Jiggy”). Even with all that in play, the project went virtually unnoticed by major publications. Shy Glizzy hasn’t turned a blind eye to those hard truths, either, and on his new EP Fully Loaded, he plants more evidence as to why his artistry is deserving of more consideration.
