Gillie Da Kid Said Lil Durk “Is The New Jay-Z”
This statement has created a debate among Hip Hop’s generations, and the debates don’t appear to be winding down anytime soon. On It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper, artists have been addressing pop cultural trends, and a clip she released on Instagram with Gillie Da Kid has sparked heated debate on who the next Rap icon-mogul-business tycoon is in the industry.
Gillie isn’t one to shy away from controversy, especially when it comes to sharing his thoughts, and he recently claimed that Lil Durk is this generation’s Jay-Z.
“What you mean? You know who the new Hov is,” he said in a clip. “‘I’m Durkio but I’m Chicago’s Jay-Z.’ Yeah, you know who the new Hov is!” Harper asked Gillie if he believed that. “Yes! To the young street n*ggas? Yes. Because see, Hov was about, you know, being a hustler, gettin’ some money, gettin’ the—that was the wave when we was young.”
“We didn’t look up to the shooters. The shooters was crash dummies. If you was a shooter, you was a n*gga who life didn’t mean that much. We didn’t value your life. You was a goofy. It didn’t matter if you went to jail ’cause you gon’ die or go to jail anyway soon. You’s a goofy… Now, the shooters get praise. A n*gga can have some bodies and have no money and be popular. It’s like, wait, that n*gga don’t—that n*gga just got a $600 rusty gun. Like, what the f*ck is we praising him about?”
Lil Durk has previously stated that he is Chicago’s Jay-Z.
