He was only 26

Shy Glizzy affiliate 30 Glizzy was killed in South Baltimore on Wednesday, September 6, according to local police. The rapper, born Theodore Dashawn Pigford, passed away after suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.

Pigford was found by police in Baltimore’s Brooklyn neighborhood. They say that he was unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene. “He was a nice young man with a promising career,” Pigford’s attorney John McKenna told The Baltimore Sun. “It’s just sad.”

“I really am puzzled by what he was doing in South Baltimore, because he was more of a D.C. guy,” he added.

30 Glizzy had just released a mixtape last month called YC Wit Me. A designer who knew Glizzy tweeted out that he wished he was making him another mixtape cover rather than a piece of tribute art.

Shy Glizzy appeared in the music video for Lor Scoota’s regional hit “Bid Flu.” When Scoota was killed, Glizzy showed up at his funeral wearing a hat that bore the letters YBS, the name of Scoota’s crew. 30 Glizzy also shouted out Scoota in several of his songs. “Rest in peace to Up Next,” he rapped, refrencing Scoota’s ad-lib of “Scoota Up Next!” “But I can’t be a victim, I’mma be a suspect,” he continued.

Though Glizzy was affiliated with a crew of Washington, D.C. rappers, he hailed from Prince George’s County and his ties to Baltimore are apparent in his discography.
