When Nipsey Hussle died, there was a great deal of energy spent on highlighting how far his contributions extended beyond his music. Hussle, as he was aptly named, gave back in so many ways. He inspired others through his generosity and business acumen. California based rapper, Foreign Glizzy is walking down a similar lane. He’s a man of hustle and flow—pushing dope music (including his own) through his independent label, Foreign Family Records, and building generational wealth—the fruits of which he is sharing with others in his community.
For Glizzy, born Gary Williams Jr., the Bay Area is the only home he knows. He was born in San Francisco and raised in Vallejo, California, the birthplace of rap legends, Mac Dre and E-40.
Last year he dropped a dope visual for his single, Road Running. In the video, Foreign Glizzy is sitting in a sexy Maserati as he flashes racks of cash and spits over a sick drill beat. He raps, “I’m just counting up, baby. Hold on.
Soon as I’m done, put your clothes on.” The song is also featured on his album, “Foreign Exchange”.
Road Running was produced by David Wesson and the music video was directed by BTCvisuals. Since its release, the video has garnered more than half a million views.
