Shy Glizzy - "Tru Story"
(Fuck Rap; 2012)
Shy Glizzy landed on my radar after threatening to shoot Chief Keef's naive grandmother in her titties ad nauseam. Then he released a video for "Busters," which captured what I assume to be Gunplay's last moments of freedom. These are admittedly superficial reasons to take a vested interest in an artist. If it helps any, I also sympathize with his inability to grow a full beard. His latest tape, "Fuck Rap," is almost middling enough to abandon all hope in Glizzy's future endevors. But "Tru Story" is probably the best record that won't make anyone's end-of-year list.
