Gillie Da King Career Beginnings
Major Figgas, a North Philadelphia rap trio, helped Gillie break into the scene. He eventually transformed himself into a successful solo musician and signed a deal with Cash Money.
However, he disagreed with Cash Money CEO Bryan “Baby” Williams backstage at a concert in Philadelphia, and almost within a week, he secured a deal with New Orleans label. Unfortunately, a solo record was never released due to disagreements over his ownership so he continued to work as a ghostwriter behind the scenes.
He left Cash Money, just like other well-known artists before him, but kept good and healthy relationship with Lil Wayne. That is, until 2006, when Wayne made some unnecessary jabs at Gillie on one of his mixtapes.
His latest podcast, “Million Dollaz Worth of Game,” helped his career reach new heights in recent years. In this podcast, they talk about music, current events, and other topics with his co-host and Wallo267. The fact that Wallo and Gillie are first cousins shouldn’t be surprising.
They work together on their podcast and have a lot of influence on social media. It’s rare that a discussion about Wallo won’t bring up Gillie’s name, and vice versa. The two have gathered millions of YouTube views and streams on various social media platforms.
