Gillie Da Kid Arrested For Running Drug Houses

Philadelphia born rapper Gillie Da Kid was arrested on Tuesday (Feb. 6), after authorities learned he was allegedly running two drug houses.

Gillie and five associates were arrested, after authorities received a tip and searched the houses on Passmore Street in Philadelphia.

Police confiscated 89 pounds of marijuana worth $404,000.

All five were charged with conspiracy and possessing narcotics with intent to deliver.

“They were supplying numerous drug dealers all over the city, not just in the Northeast,” Sgt. Robert Friel of Narcotics Field Unit 2 told the Philadelphia Daily News.

Police are also investigating another house in the area, where officers confiscated $6 million in cocaine in November.

Police watched the rapper for several hours and witnessed him receiving a delivery of marijuana.

Gillie and his associates were arrested when they attempted to leave in their luxury vehicles, which included a Lexus and Jaguar.

Gillie, born Nasir Fard, was a member of the rap group Major Figgas.

He was also an artist on Cash Money Records before a major falling out with the label’s head, Bryan “Baby” Williams and rap star Lil Wayne.
