Shy Glizzy forged a partnership with 300 in 2014, after his first charting single, Awesome, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 that same year. The independent label, distributed by Atlantic Records, was co-founded by executives Kevin Liles, Lyor Cohen and Todd Muscowitz. Cohen and Muscowitz both left 300 in recent years. Cohen took a job at YouTube, and Muscowitz went on to found competitor label Alamo Records.
Glizzy took a notice to No Savage, who is from Shy’s neighborhood of 37th Street, Southeast recently. In the past month, Savage announced a signature cannabis strain, and dropped a new video on Worldstar with L.A.’s Dro Fe. Last year, No Savage, and Young Jose, who both were previously affiliated with Glizzy Gang, had a very public feud with Shy that went viral, and was detailed in the Fader. Thankfully, a neighborhood disagreement that got out of control was squashed, and Savage and Shy both have promised upcoming projects.
No Savage has been building his buzz since 2018, with millions of views on YouTube, and thousands of followers and monthly listeners on Instagram and Spotify. Big congrats to No Savage…definitely looking forward to what’s next for him in the future.
