In an interview with Mikey T The Movie Star, Gillie talked about the time he was shot three times in Philadelphia. The former Cash Money artist was hit in the leg twice and arm three times back in 2006.
“I was in a hood that wasn’t mine. I was dripping, cause I’m always dripping,” said Gillie. “A n*gga tried to test me. I took my licking and kept on ticking. The best of us get tagged once in awhile.”
A year later, Gillie and five associates were arrested for allegedly running a drug operation. He was later cleared of all charges. The “Young Bull” rhymer pointed out that none of the individuals taken into custody for the case chose to testify against the other defendants.
“We all stood tall like City Hall. What’s the percentages of that? You get locked up with five other motherf*ckers – ten out of ten somebody’s snitching,” added Gillie. “Not in my case. Make sure you surround yourself around the right people.”
