Gillie Da Kid’s Management Issues Statement Denying Wrongdoing
Following reports of his arrest on charges of conspiracy and possession of narcotics with intent to distribute, Gillie Da Kid’s management has issued the following statement on behalf of the rapper:
I am confirming the fact that Gillie was indeed taken into custody and arrested by the Philadelphia Police Department on Tuesday, February 6, 2007. However, the charges are unwarranted and once Gillie has his day in court, we are confident that the evidence against him will prove to be false. The Philadelphia Police Department is clearly using Gillie’s status as a hip hop artist and entertainer to draw media attention to him. This was clearly a case of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gillie is in no way guilty of the charges brought against him and once all facts come to light, he will be fully exonerated. Gillie is in high spirits and wants to thank the whole hip hop community for their support and well wishes during this time. Gillie recently signed a Mixtape Album Deal with Babygrande Records to release a “Best of Gillie Da Kid Mixtapes” which will be dropping in stores March 13 featuring Gillie along with the whole Major Figgas Crew.
Gillie was taken into custody on Tuesday (February 6) in Philadelphia by narcotics investigators who claim he was running two drug stash houses in the Oxford Circle section of the city. Five associates that the rapper was with at the time were also arrested. Officers confiscated 89 lbs. of marijuana with an estimated worth of $404,000.
