I Need Mo’
This has got to be one of the catchiest solo tracks Shy Glizzy has on Fully Loaded. On this track Shy talks about needing more of everything he already possesses in terms of money and women. Shy Glizzy’s flow and melodic sound is often appealing, however, it is always his hooks that seem to be the most memorable and it is no different in this track. This is a track that certainly deserves a listen or two.
It is amazing that Shy can all these wonderful artists on his tracks but it is his solo tracks that really stand out. Shy Glizzy has ended 2018 on a high with a debut album that may go under radar but most certainly deserves a mention due to the nice sounding beats and melodic flow that it provides. Therefore, this album gets a 7.5/10.
