Gillie Da Kid - Do Your Job

Gillie Da Kid: King of Philly

Having shuffled on and off numerous labels, such as Suave House, Roc-A-Fella, Warner Bros., and Cash Money (where he allegedly ghostwrote for Lil’ Wayne), Philadelphia rapper Gillie Da Kid has teamed up with everybody’s favorite mid-major label, Koch, for his debut album, King of Philly.  If there’s one thing Gillie knows from his back-burner experience, it’s the haters that exist at both the underground and major levels.  On Do Your Job, the emcee begs them all not to stop.  Most of the potential hate for this record will be directed at producer Young Ike Turna for his club-ready beat (and Katt Williams audio clip), as well as the interpolated LL Cool Jgo head” sample.
