You may have come across the word “glizzy” while perusing the internet or watching TikToks, but what exactly is that term referring to? Glizzy’s been around for awhile, but it just broke into popular internet culture in the last few years—it’s even part of a TikTok trend now, too! If you want to start slinging glizzy into your everyday vocabulary, read on to uncover the history, meaning, and uses of this trendy word.

Things You Should Know

  • Glizzy was originally used to refer to a handgun, specifically a glock.
  • Due to the similar shapes, glizzy started being used to describe hotdogs in the 2010s.
  • Glizzy can also be used as a sexual innuendo, usually in a derogatory context.

The Original Meaning of Glizzy

  1. 1

    The term “glizzy” began as a word for “glock,” or reference to any handgun. “Glizzy” has been around since the 80s in the hip-hop community, but it was popularized by the 2000 Big Pun single, “It’s So Hard.”[1] In the song he refers to a gun in his glove compartment as “the glizzy locked in the stizzy.” If you hear “glizzy” in rap, assume it’s a gun.

    • This term arose from the black community in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia area).
    • Some notable users of glizzy are DMV rapper Shy Glizzy and his group, the Glizzy Gang.[2]
    • “The glizzy’s loaded.”
    • “I’ve always got my glizzy on me.”
  2. 2

    ”Glizzy” comes from “izzle cant,” a kind of esoteric slang. You may have heard some other words turned into “izzles,” like fo shizzle, instead of for sure. This trend started in black communities during the Harlem Renaissance as a way to add extra syllables to words, and became popularized in rap by Snoop Dogg.[3] Glizzy is the izzled version of glock.

Glizzy’s Meaning on TikTok

  1. 1

    Glizzy can refer to a hotdog. Some believe that due to the similar lengths of glock magazines and hotdogs, the wieners started being referred to as glizzies, as well.[4] Once again, this term came from the black community in the Baltimore and DC area. One of the earliest online records of this meaning comes from a 2016 youtube video made by DC creator Azel Prather.[5]

    • “I’m so hungry I could eat a hundred glizzies.”
    • “Put a glizzy on the grill for me.”
  2. 2

    The “glizzy gobbler” TikTok trend started in 2020. In June of 2020 a Facebook post making fun of an unaware hotdog eater sparked the “glizzy gobbler” trend.[6] Glizzy gobblers, or glizzy gladiators, are people who eat hotdogs extremely quickly or in a silly way, like shoving the sausage way too far into their mouths.

    • Popular glizzy gobbler hashtags are #glizzy, #glizzygobbler, and #glizzy3000.
    • “Did you see how fast he ate that?”
      “Yeah, he’s a real glizzy gobbler.”
    • “Did you just eat a hotdog in one bite?”
      “What can I say, I’m a glizzy gladiator.”

Glizzy as a Sexual Innuendo

  1. Just like “weiner” or “sausage,” glizzy can refer to a penis. This meaning is pretty cut and dried. Hotdogs and penises have similar shapes, so once glizzy started being associated with hotdogs, it became sexual as well. Usually, this version of glizzy is used to imply a man is gay. While the word itself isn’t explicitly derogatory, it’s often used with that connotation.

    • This is the least common use of glizzy.
    • “Stop looking at my glizzy bro.”
    • “You really like to gobble glizzies, huh Tyler?”
