Contrary to earlier reports, Philadelphia rapper Gillie Da Kid will not be taking part in an upcoming Brotherly Love Concert being organized by Beanie Sigel and Nikes ACG Store.
Gillie Da Kid, Beanie Sigel and a host of upcoming rappers from Philadelphia have publicly feuded over the past few years by trading insults on mixtapes, the radio and the Internet.
Representatives for Gillie Da Kid have confirmed with AllHipHop.com that a scheduling conflict will prevent the rapper from attending the concert, which is scheduled to take place December 11.
Gillie is set to leave to Puerto Rico to begin filming the movie King of The Avenue with Ving Rhames on December 9, 2008. Gillie’s role in the movie with Ving Rhames is the leading role in the film, a rep for the rapper revealed to AllHipHop.com.
King of The Avenue is being directed by Ryan Combs and centers on a young drug dealer, who sells his soul to the devil in order to become the #1 pusher on the block.
Despite the scheduling conflict, Gillie Da Kid is also doing his part to ensure peace in Philadelphia by officially ending his long standing feud with platinum rapper Cassidy.
A public burying of the hatchet is supposed to occur this Sunday (December 7), AllHipHop.com has confirmed. Gillie and Cassidy are both scheduled to put aside all of their past differences and come together and perform together at Transit Nightclub.
Sigels free Brotherly Love Concert featuring Freeway, Reed Dollas, Joey Jahad and E-Ness will continue as planned December 11 at the Fillmore on South Street, starting at 5:00 pm.
Gillie is currently involved in a heated beef with former Major Figgas member Dirty Rik.
