(AllHipHop News) In the final part of AllHipHop.com’s interview with Gillie Da Kid, the rapper touches on jumping in the studio with Philly legend Will Smith.
Will Smith stopped by so Gillie could show him the trailer for his upcoming film “Brotherly Love” co-starring Ving Rhames.
“For me it was a blessing. I call myself ‘Gil Smith,’ so in 2014 I’m officially changing my s**t to Gil Smith. I sat down with Will and I told him ‘I’m transitioning from the rapping to the acting like you. Can I use the name?’ He told me ‘go ahead’ and run with it.”
It didn’t end there. Big Will jumped in the booth at Bat Cave Studio to lay a verse for the King of Philly.
“It was a beautiful situation. Will came through and showed me some love and got in the booth. I’m truly blessed to know good people, have good friends and great relationships.”
Gillie wouldn’t say if said the unnamed track will come out on his Religion Records album Welcome to Gilladelphia.
“Y’all got to wait for that. That’s Billionare Dollar Will. Just know he got in that booth that’s right there. Just know that. We leaked the little footage out to y’all. That’s just another reason to show you I’m the King.”

The self-proclaimed “Gil Smith” also says that he beats up Steven Seagal in another film, releasing this year.
Former Major Figgas co-founder Gillie Da Kid has built a career in film, since leaving Cash Money Records over five years ago. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rapper has released a series of independent street albums, while working on indie films with actor and friend Ving Rhames.
In a new interview with Mikey T The Moviestar, Gillie promoted some recent straight-to-DVD work. “I got some movies out right now. Wrath Of Cain, King Of The Avenue, Mafia, Pimp Bully, Streets.” He also added that he is now working with Above The Law star Steven Seagal in an upcoming picture, planned to release this Fall. “I got one coming in November called Force Of Execution with me and Steven Seagal, Danny Trejo, and Ving Rhames. Y’all should go check that out; I whip Steven Seagal’s ass in this movie.”
The YouTube sensation continued, noting that he is the latest rapper to play another in a film. In an upcoming film, the self-proclaimed “Gil Smith” will be portraying late superstar emcee (and actor in his own right) Tupac Shakur. “I’m just waitin’ on findin’ out when we shootin’,” said Gillie, adding that he had been paid and received a script, but was unaware of production schedule. “I’m just an actor in that.” He compared himself to another Philly emcee-turned-actor. “Just know, nigga, I’ma transform like Will Smith did when he played [Muhammad] Ali. We already know I’m G’d up enough to play [Tupac]. That was never a question.” Gillie revealed that he had been bulking up in the gym to portray the Death Row Records multi-platinum artist who was tragically murdered in Las Vegas, Nevada in September of 1996.
A onetime nemesis of State Property and Lil Wayne, Gillie did not hold his tongue on criticizing other Rap artists who are acting. “Who else is better to play ‘Pac than me, though? Let’s be honest—especially if it was a fuckin’ rapper. None of these fuckin’ rappers!” The North Philly veteran touted, “That’s what these niggas is: they rappers.”
