Gillie Da Kid's Drug Charges Dropped
The hip-hop star, real name S'ard Nasir, spent time behind bars in February (07) after being detained by Philadelphia authorities in a drugs bust involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Cops discovered almost $500,000 (GBP250,000)-worth of marijuana in two houses allegedly run by Gillie and five associates.
However, Gillie - who protested his innocence throughout the case - has now had charges of conspiracy and possession of narcotics with intent to deliver dropped.
Meanwhile, the former Major Figgas MC has signed a new deal with Koch Records, ending speculation over his links with G-Unit and Atlantic Records.
In a statement addressing his new record contract and legal issues, he says, "Shout out to Alan Grunblatt and Shadow Stokes at Koch for believing in a n**ga and standing by a n**ga through all of this...
"Shout out to my manager Yanna B. for doin' her thing and holdin' me down, and a big shout out to Tony Draper for comin' in and helping me seal the deal..."
