carving out is own piece of the Hip Hop world. As the nephew of Lee Andrews from “Lee Andrews and the Hearts” and his cousin Ahmir Thompson AKA Questlove, Gliss knew at a young age which direction he would take. Gliss received his rap name from his Brother Ali’s rap book. Ali overheard him reciting lyrics that he had written for a song and loved it. The name stuck; however, Ali would influence Gliss to find his own style and sound. He began his focus on lyrical word play and great hooks, which established him as a great upcoming artist in Philadelphia and beyond.
