(AllHipHop News) The “Awwsome” performer spoke to Fader about rebranding and reinventing himself as a “boss.”

“I earned the title Jefe. It comes with maturity, more responsibility, and putting more people in the position of being a boss in every aspect,” said the 2015 XXL Freshman. “With a name like that, you don’t have a choice. From the get go I’ve been putting on for the city. That’s already been established. As Jefe, Shy Glizzy, or whatever name I’m going by — as a person, I represent for D.C. in every way possible.”

Jefe’s The World Is Yours is scheduled to drop on January 6.

The last two years have seen the 24-year-old release Be Careful, For Trappers Only, and Young Jefe 2.
