With the United States and the rest of the world rallying to fight for the Black Lives Matter movement, following the deaths of several unarmed Black people at the hand of police, Gillie Da Kid has offered a statement on his silence surrounding the topic.
“So I keep getting the same question, Gillie you always giving up game, why you don’t ever give no game on Black Lives Matter?,” the Philadelphia native begins. “‘Cause I don’t get to that shit nigga, All Lives Matter, nigga. I don’t give a fuck if you White, Black blue, purple, brown, tangerine, NIGGA, All Lives Matter. “
As the “Get Down On the Ground” rhymer continues his tirade against the Black Lives Matter movement continues, Gillie references the Black-on-Black crime he has experienced and seen throughout his life.
“Y’all want a nigga to go out here head first telling these muthafuckin’ White people. Black Lives Matter but my motherfucking Black life didn’t matter to the nigga that tired to execute me,” Gillie goes on. “To the nigga that shot me in my muthafuckin’ wrist, stomach and my foot. The nigga that tired to have my momma singing ‘It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye’ my Black life didn’t matter to that nigga. All the niggas I knew were shot by niggas. What about my muthafuckin’ nieces and nephews who half Black and half White? Only 50% of they lives matter, nigga?”
Gillie Da Kid is one of several rappers who have aligned themselves with the All Lives Matter movements. Fetty Wap, Gucci Mane and Kevin Gates have also spoken out in support of the rival organization.
