(AllHipHop News) In the second part of AllHipHop.com’s exclusive with Gillie Da Kid, he opened up about his new situation with Kansas City Chiefs’ Tamba Hali and Religion Records, as well as connecting with former label mate, Mannie Fresh.
Gillie looks at the new situation with Hali’s Religion Records as the next, logical step in his career.
“Everything we do is top-notch where as my marketing plan before was on an indie label,” Gillie told AllHipHop.com. “I don’t have the money that Tamba got. I was doing it and my look was still big, but now my look is humongous. The difference is before my look was a baby elephant, now I’m fully grown.”
Gillie also touched on locking back in the studio with his former associate Mannie Fresh for the Philadelphia native’s new album Welcome to Giladelphia.
“We going to give yall some of them hit records yall was supposed to get several years ago but you couldn’t get it,” Gillie explained to AllHipHop.com. “So we got back in there locked in, bout to bust you ni**as heads open. It’s going to be a few ni**as sick … take it like a man.”
Gillie was signed to Cash Money Records in 2002, but the deal was short-lived due to a dispute with the label over publishing. Gillie left the label in 2004.
“It’s beautiful. Mannie Fresh is a ni**a that makes hit records a ni**a with vision a ni**a thats really responsible for the whole Cash Money run,” Gillie explained.
Welcome to Giladelphia is the new album by Gillie Da Kid, which is set for a 2014 release date.
