Gillie Da Kid, who helms his own Barstool Sports podcast Million Dollaz Worth of Game alongside Wallo267, was recently forced to confront a newly surfaced video in which he utters the highly controversial phrase “All Lives Matter,” one he said is years old.
“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?’” he said in the clip. “‘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.”
But Joe Budden doesn’t care how long ago it was — he made it clear Gillie isn’t getting a pass during Episode 361 of The Joe Budden Podcast. After replaying Gillie’s comments, Budden says, “Oh so you don’t understand it?”
He then proceeds to play Gillie’s response to the backlash he faced last week.
“Woke up to a bunch of text messages today,” Gillie said. “‘Gillie, you trending No. 2 in the world.’ Oh, I see you bitches tried to put smut on my name.”
Budden replies, “No, you did that.”
The Gillie recording continues, “Y’all tried to poach something I said four years ago to try to act like it was in today’s climate. When I said that, white people weren’t even saying that at that time. Shout out to Black Lives Matter movement.”
Budden interjects, “Why?” as Gillie’s words continue to play: “I support y’all.” The former Slaughterhouse MC says, “No you don’t.”
With the swift click of a button, Budden stops the recording and is reluctant to listen to anymore, although he does play it for a few more seconds before bringing it to a halt.
As Budden’s co-hosts Jamil “Mal” Clay, Rory Farrell and Parks Vallely debate the topic, Budden refuses to give Gillie a pass.
“Yeah, I’m not caping for this nigga, man,” he says. “This nigga says and does a lotta stupid, doofy, goofball shit and ever since he got that Barstool deal, it’s amplified. I’m not dignifying any conversation about the response to Black Lives Matter being it should matter to black people.
“You’ve missed the point. And if you’re not bright enough to get the point, then what the fuck are you talking about the point for?”
Budden’s comments come around the 2-hour and 16-minute mark. Watch the full conversation above.
