EXCLUSIVE: Gillie Da Kid says “There’s Only One King of Philly”

(AllHipHop News) In the third installment of’s exclusive Interview with Gillie Da Kid, the rapper explained his controversial “King of Philly” title, which he says was given to him by the streets.

“Thats not no self-proclaimed title , it’s not like I’m the only one saying the s**t,” Gillie told “The streets say the s**t…so thats what it is…until the streets stop saying it, but they aint going to say it cause there’s only one king. And if you want that title your running late.”

Gillie touched on other artists in Philly and explained that a number of other rapper’s have had memorable monikers to compliment their official rap names.

“Its like another motherfu**er trying to be the Broad Street Bully,” Gillie reasoned. “How you going to be that, there’s only one of them right? That’s like a mothefu**er trying to be Mr. Philadelphia. Last time I checked that was Meek Mill,” Gillie said before saluting popular Philly artists like Freeway and Peedi Crack.

(Note: This interview with Gillie Da Kid was conducted three days before Meek Mill sent out disses at Gillie via social media).

    Man Philly stays going back n forth when it comes to this king of philly shit… black people let go of the crab mentality please.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      you from Philly???? if not how can you speak on what Philly is going back and forth about!!!! Philly as a whole doesnt go back and forth, its the mc’s/street dudes…. Im born and raised there and what he said up top was true… he didnt give himself the title. Major Figgas been had respect in the street before, during and after the music shit and Gillie been the main face of them since the begingning pretty much. Funny thing is he really dont be shitting on other rappers from the city.

        I’m not from Philly and I don’t have to be to speak on it if I’m following what’s going on in the Philly hiphop scene. As far as Philly as a whole of course I’m talking about the mc’s only since that was the topic being addressed up top. What I’m talking about is these dudes constantly bickering and beefing with each other over foolishness.

  • well Meek already said it on the 25 second mark…

    Cassidy hands down the best out of Philly. Its not even close. Record sales, street cred, what Gillie Joint ever got knocked outside of Philly and maybe New York.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      bar for bar he is up there but when your main man exposes you (whether people say he was bitchin or not) and you dont dispute anything he said but turn around and try and make a song about coke flipping and gun busting, nobody wants to hear that. Unfortunately Cassidy has been exposed (even tho most cats aint living what they rap about) and nobody been checking for him in the longest time anyway.

    Black Thought is one of the best in the world, let alone Philly.

    Freeway is a personal favorite tho

  • KushGod415

    king of Philly my ass

  • trilltalk1

    if you niggas reading and listening, he said the streets co-signed that name. i don’t think it has shit to do with rap. GILLIE a real from them streets from my overstanding. so he got the name based on work he put in, on them streets not work he put in on them beats. there is a difference if niggas don’t know.

  • WillVetterGoodin

    Wearing chains and flashing some change doesn’t make you king of anything. You have to have actual skills for that.
