Philadelphia-based rapper Gillie Da Kid has made headlines again, this time for his philanthropic and generous efforts in giving back to his community. Gillie recently donated a considerable sum of money to underprivileged kids in his hometown, providing them with much-needed financial support.
In a video shared on Friday, April 7th, the rapper-turned-podcaster rewards some extremely grateful neighborhood kids with cash as he exits what appears to be a sneaker store. The “Get Down on da Ground” rapper begins distributing large sums of money to residents. The kids can be seen extremely happy and appreciative of the ‘Million Dollaz Worth of Game’ host’s kindness.
Although Gillie’s actual donation amount is unknown, it is assumed to be in the tens of thousands of dollars. As he distributed the cash to the appreciative children, he can be heard in the video recorded encouraging them to “stay out the streets,” as one said she would be “going straight home” following him giving her a load of cash.
