Gillie Da Kid Blasts Akon Over 6ix9ine Collab: “You Gon’ Backdoor N*ggas Like That?”
We’re about to get a fresh take on Akon’s “Locked Up,” but not everyone is here for it. A brief video recently surfaced showing Akon working with Tekashi 6ix9ine on a remix to his 2004 jailbird hit, “Locked Up.” It caused quite a stir and even Tory Lanez weighed in, insinuating that Akon wouldn’t clear the record for him while in disbelief that 6ix9ine was able to get the goods. Many artists have added their two cents on 6ix9ine being welcomed back into the music fold after turning federal informant against his friends and associates, and recently Gillie Da Kid had a few words for Akon regarding his latest partnership.
“I see Akon, you know, he’s remaking ‘Locked Up,'” Gillie said. “My whole thing is, how you gon’ come into the game with ‘I’m locked up, they won’t let me out.’ They probably wouldn’t let you out ’cause a n*gga told on you. This how you come in the game… You know how many n*ggas in jail love that f*ckin’ record. You know how many n*ggas crossed the world done been through some pain, done been through some hard times, done been through all types of injustice and they just love that song and you gon’ backdoor n*ggas like that?“
Gillie Da Kid said that he respects Akon and the stamp he’s made on music, but he can’t support working with 6ix9ine. He added that he should’ve chosen another track or created a new song. “Make the right song, n*gga. ‘I’m locked up, they gon’ let me out.’ B*tch they lettin’ you the f*ck out ’cause you told on a n*gga. The f*ck you mean you locked up they won’t let you out?!… ‘I’m locked up they gon’ let me out, ’cause I’m runnin’ my mouth.'” Watch Gillie Da Kid’s response below.
