Glizzy grew up in Washington, with his mother and grandmother, as his father was killed before Glizzy was 1 year old. His childhood was marked with the troubles he got into, some minor as for example at the age of 12, he acquired a tattoo under his right eye, and afraid of the punishment he might receive, didn`t go home that night. However, after that his troubles increased somewhat, as he sold drugs, and was eventually jailed for theft, and subsequently spent most of his high school days in juvenile delinquent homes.
Shy never finished high school, but instead he obtained his GED while being imprisoned. He started rapping as soon as he was released from prison, and his first mixtape was released in 2011, entitled “No Brainer”. The mixtape had its success, encouraging Glizzy to continue his career as a rapper.

In August 2013, Glizzy released his next mixtape, “Law 2”, which included collaboration with a number of rap artists, of which the most notable were Yo Gotti, Migos and Kevin Gates.

The mixtape propelled Glizzy into the big world of rap stars with what became the hit single “Awwsome”, which was later covered by rappers ASAP Rocky and 2 Chainz.
