After co-founding legendary D.C. gogo band TOB, Gleesh rose to local rap prominence through the release of several street mixtapes that showcase his sometimes dark, sometimes comedic, but always original style of street rap, aptly titled Shitbag Music. Since he began, Gleesh frequently collaborated with MMG-signee Fat Trel, Chicago Based music group GBE’s Fredo Santana, Ballout & Capo. In early 2013 he fielded an offer to join Gucci Mane’s 1017 Bricksquad outfit and featured on tracks with 1017 members such as PeeWee Longway.

With his 3rd installment to his mixtape series “Cleansides Finest,” the DC artist looks to solidify his place as top-tier rapper with in-house produced hits. With sold-out headlining shows in DC, NY, and LA, Gleesh has proven to be one of the more exciting acts to hit the current-day rap scene with energetic performances.
Over the past year Gleesh has made many large appearances from performing at the 2014 Fools Gold Day Off in Brooklyn with Fools Gold recording artist Danny Brown to performing as an official artist on this year’s 2014 SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas alongside the likes of New York’s popular A$AP Mob. Gleesh has also performed at sold out events in NY with friend and frequent collaborator Fredo Santana for his first New York headlining show.
