YNG Cheese’s tragic passing following a shooting in Philadelphia shook the hip-hop world, which expressed a lot of grief and support for his father, Gillie Da Kid.
Recently, many of those figures came together for Gillie Fest in collaboration with Million Dollaz Worth Of Game co-host Wallo267. Moreover, this followed the saddening event, and was thus a special moment of mourning but also community and solidarity. Before performing the Philly MC’s classic song “What We Do,” Freeway gave some brief remarks on them both having lost their children. It was a powerful moment, and one that’s bound to resonate with many fans.
