Washington, DCShy Glizzy connects with Karen Civil and Civil TV to discuss growing up in Southside of Washington DC, his motivations and his popular Young Jefe mixtape. A few days ago he released the visuals for one of the mixtape’s more popular songs, “Awwsome.”

“Pretty much, shit rough out here we in the trenches,” the 21-year-old rapper says of the “real DC,” where he now serves as an inspiring figure. “I grew up out here, born and raised. I just give people hope out here.”

During the walk through his old stomping grounds, the Glizzy Gang general ended up in front of a childhood candy truck shelling out $200 for some purple gummies. “This little nigga used to steal my candy and everything,” she said. “It’s on one of his songs.”

Growing up in the Southside of DC, Glizzy was forced to become a man at the tender age of 14 in order to help contribute to his single-parent household. Other than robbing candy stores, the “Wassaname” rapper explains the drought of rap idols in Southside DC left him looking up to king pins and other street dudes. “I put in a lot of hard work to get to where I’m at,” he says. “DC ain’t never been seen so I’m just tryna make that happen.”
