The best song from DC rapper Shy Glizzy’s Young Jefe mixtape finally has a video. “Awwsome” is remarkably somber-sounding for a song about how cool you are; Glizzy’s ragged voice is so suited for songs about pain and bitterness that even the celebratory ones sound harsh. But the video’s appropriately lavish, with Glizzy hosting a champagne-soaked pool party, complete with water slide. He also featured on Meek Mill’s hard-hitting “Chiraq” remix earlier this week, along with Lil Durk. It’s an unexpected pairing, given Glizzy’s long-standing beef with Chief Keef and GBE, though it’s unclear where Durk and Keef’s relationship currently stands. Durk addresses their alleged recent fallout on the remix, albeit vaguely (Niggas say me and Sosa beefing, but we both eating), but Keef appears to have sided against Durk in his current beef with Tyga; yesterday, he retweeted a link to Tyga and Game’s Durk diss and posted its artwork on his Instagram, along with some uncharacteristic Blood talk. Here’s to hoping everything watches this awwsome video and finds some chill.
