‘That’s S–t Ain’t Cool’: Gillie Da Kid Slams Graphic Images of Death Scenes Being Shared on Social Media

As news of rapper Takeoff’s death spread early Tuesday morning continues to send shock waves through the hip-hop community, grief has quickly turned into anger as many industry members demand that social media users not share highly graphic photos and videos of the Migos member’s last living moments.

Several celebrities, including “A Million Dollaz Worth of Game” host Gillie Da Kid, have since taken to their platforms, where they called out the insensitive behavior of fans and media outlets alike.

In a  three-minute video that has been making its way around social media, the rapper-turned-podcaster spoke directly to internet users, stating, “Why every time something happens to a rapper, an athlete, an entertainer, or anybody of color, the first thing you n–gas do is pull your f–king phones out and start recording and [then] post that s**t on the internet? You n**gas are clowns for that s–t, man.”

He continued. “The last image a motherf–ker wants to see is their people laying on the ground, bleeding the f–k out, man. N–gas [have their] mamas, kids, grandmamas, uncles, and aunties [seeing] that dumb s–t, man. But the first thing y’all n–gas do is pull your phones out, ‘Ooh, look at such and such.’ Man, that’s s–t ain’t cool, man. That n–ga just lost his life, and you n–gas [are] trying to get likes. Tell me how that s**t adds up.” 

“And all you blog sites — y’all n**gas is out of pocket. Y’all n**gas be trying to get clickbait, and you n**gas are suckers, man.” Gillie shared a photo of himself and the Migos on his page with the caption, “RIP yung Legend, @yrntakeoff. Sad fu$kin day.”

The Philly native received plenty of support for his stance from fans and celebrities alike, including DJ DNice, who agreed, writing, “They have absolutely no respect.”

Actor Jason Mitchelle applauded the underground emcee, noting, “This is the truth big brudda.” 

As previously reported, Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, was fatally shot early Tuesday morning in a bowling alley in downtown Houston, Texas. He was 28 years old. The Atlanta native was with his uncle and fellow bandmate Quavo, who was not injured during the shooting. No arrests have been made in connection with the rapper’s death.
