The term “DMV,” used to describe Washington, DC, suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia as one monolithic region, came out of nowhere. Nobody ever said it unless they were referring to time spent in a cramped government building renewing driver’s licenses and registration, until one day it tumbled out of some radio personality or party promoter’s mouth, and stuck.
Shy Glizzy is not from the DMV.
On his latest single, “I Am DC,” he expresses disappointment at the way the city has been represented, and plants his flag into the ground as the spokesperson for the underrepresented masses of DC natives that don’t have a voice. In his typical fashion, Glizzy doesn’t mince words, and his clear, deliberate, delivery will likelu make a few hit dogs holler inside the Beltway, and beyond.
Glizzy’s Law 2: One Foot In, One Foot Out releases on August 1.
