Gillie Da Kid Inks New Deal, Criminal Charges Are Dropped, and Graces BET in Response to the News
The King of Philly is Back! The ink is still drying on the papers to Gillie da Kid’s new deal with Koch Records and finally all the rumors of Gillie landing with G-Unit and Atlantic Records are finally squashed. On top of the new deal, Gillie’s stint with the law has ended as the criminal charges stemming from an early 2007 drug charge of conspiracy and possessing narcotics with intent to deliver have been dropped.
Gillie is set to make another appearance on BET’s Rap City on Monday the 17th when Rap City will air a video mix with Gillie’s hit record, “Get Down on the Ground.”
The King of Philly has been busy in the studio working with various producers like Zookon (Jim Jones – ‘Ballin’, Red Cafe – ‘Paper Touchin’), Hotrunner (Will Smith, Eve, Lil Kim, Major Figgas [Yeah That’s Us], Fabolous, Ray J), and Ruggedness (Beanie Sigel, Freeway) not to mention a host of others for his heavily anticipated album, “Get It How You Live” under Figgas 4 Life Entertainment and Koch Records to be released sometime later this year.
