Shy Glizzy has been referring to himself as “Young Jefe” on songs for a while, but he’s decided it make it official. Starting 2017 with a fresh slate, the DMV rapper has announced he will officially be going by the moniker Jefe, and his social media handles have changed to reflect that.
Along with the name change, Jefe also launched a new website and merch, announced he will be dropping a new EP named The World Is Yours this Friday, and released the project’s first single, “One,” produced by Zaytoven.
“I’m just rebranding myself,” Jefe told 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.”
