Gillie Da King and Wallo have consistently shown their unwavering support for Pooh Shiesty throughout his legal ordeal, emphasizing the importance of his well-being behind bars and his role in the broader context of prison reform.
Their commitment to improving his conditions and advocating for others in similar situations remains unwavering. However, Gillie Da King recently stirred up a debate when he publicly praised the rapper for adhering to the street code by refusing to cooperate with authorities.
While this street code holds substantial sway in the hip-hop world, some individuals argued that such commendation was excessive, given that Pooh Shiesty’s silence also shielded other individuals involved in criminal activities, as evident in the responses to a related tweet.

During an episode of their podcast, “Million Dollaz Worth Of Game,” Gillie took a moment to acknowledge Pooh Shiesty’s principled stance, remarking, “You took your time. You didn’t do no finger-pointing. You stood up like a man. You in the slammer right now, and you smiling. And you in good spirits. So I just appreciate you for being a stand-up, you know, for standing up for some sh*t you did wrong. ‘Cause a lot of motherf*ers out here is pointing fingers right now, so I salute you for that, man. For being a man’s man”
Pooh Shiesty responded with gratitude, saying, “Real sh**, bro. Real. I’ve been saying this part, you know what I’m saying? Once again, not to brag or boast, but more of this has got to come back. This is what I’ve talked up, this is what I’ve taught and been taught, this is what I grew up with, and this is what I looked up to. You know what I’m saying?”
