      I never blame SPADE for that shet, that got him
      Lock. I blame jay-z and him hyping cats up like he was down to ride in these streets.
      With them.

      That had the hanger-ons acting tuff getting out of line,
      With cats…..

      And he was provoke. And he still took the bid for other niggas & didnt snitch.

        And gillie did write for wayne. Listen to wayne before the carter

        When he was rapping all that hot boys shet, & 500 degrees shet.
        He was on that south shet, that he came out on.

        Go Dj,
        Got gillie style all over it, wayne just made it sound different cause he added that southern slang to a philly flow. Gillie wrote damn near half the carter.
        He was signed to cash money since 02, but they just wanted him to write.

        Wayne def took his flow & style, its just sound different cause wayne from the south,
        With an accent slang, when he rap.

        Why u think dutch & gillie in the ” go dj” video.?????

        That all gillie flow, anybody from philly know it,

        Its just a southern niggah spitting it.

        So it sound like his. Lol

  • MrTroyMercy

  • Keith Brickz

    gillie will forever be a ghostwriter…dude aint meant to be a star…he aint cut from that cloth…hes talented yes, but he has no star potential what so ever

  • for ONCE, I’d like to see a story like this..and read the comments and see nuccas be happy for a dude….yea its probably not the best situation for him..but if it gives him an opportunity to put fod on his family’s table then so be it…
