Philadelphia rapper Gillie Da Kid was released from prison on Friday (Feb. 16).
The rapper was arrested on Feb. 6, after authorities searched two houses on Passmore Street in Philadelphia and found more than 89 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated street value of $404,000.
Gillie and four associates were charged with conspiracy and possessing narcotics with intent to deliver.
“He is extremely happy to be home and is resting comfortably with his family,” representatives for Gillie said in a press release. “He maintains his innocence and is looking forward to promoting and releasing his upcoming mixtape album.”
Prior to being incarcerated, Gillie was preparing to
release The Best of The Gillie Da Kid Mixtapes, which hits stores Mar. 13 on Babygrande Records.
While Gille Da Kid focuses on his mixtape series, police are also investigating the rapper’s involvement in another house in the area, where officers confiscated $6 million in cocaine last year.
