Fat Trel and Shy Glizzy Beef
Though there’s no indication as to what started the beef between fellow DC rappers Fat Trel and Shy Glizzy, many believe that Shy Glizzy dissed Fat Trel in attempt to get his name out to the public. At the time when the beef started Fat Trel was already very popular, which was not the case for Glizzy. The initial song that started the beef was a song released by Glizzy titled “Disrespect the Tech” which was a play on Fat Trel’s popular song known as “Respect With The Tech”. The beef was squashed with the help of fellow DC rapper “Wale” whom made a series of phone call in attempt to initiate peace between the two rappers.
Shy Glizzy and Chief Keef Beef
