YNG Cheese, the son of the renowned Gillie Da King, also known as Gillie Da Kid, met an untimely demise on a fateful Thursday night in Philadelphia.
In the wake of this heartbreaking event, emotions ran high as Wallo267, Gillie's cousin and co-host of the popular podcast Million Dollaz Worth of Game, poured out his feelings in a heartfelt Instagram post. He expressed his profound grief, saying, “Lil Cuz usually when I talk to you, I got a lot to tell you,” Wallo267, Gillie’s cousin and Million Dollaz Worth of Game co-host, said in an Instagram post. “Tonight the pain in my heart & tears spoke to you. I love you beyond life Cheese. I got your father, Rest Well!”
The devastating news resonated with the hip-hop community, as evidenced by the outpouring of support in the comments. Acclaimed artists like Metro Boomin, 21 Savage, 03 Greedo, Young Scooter, as well as influential figures like Sway, Ebro, and Big Boi, expressed their condolences and sorrow.
According to a report from WCAU, a credible source close to the family confirmed that the 25-year-old man fatally shot was indeed YNG Cheese, leaving a void in the lives of those who loved him.
The police representative provided grim details of the incident, revealing that Devin was shot in the back and rushed to a nearby hospital. Despite the best efforts of medical personnel, he was pronounced dead at 8:39 p.m. on that ill-fated Thursday.
The other victims of the sh**ting, a 28-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the right leg and a 31-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the left hip, are currently in stable condition. As of now, no arrests have been made, and the motive behind the sh**ting remains an enigma.
In the face of this tragedy, the Philadelphia Police Department's Homicide Unit has assured that the investigation remains active and ongoing, leaving no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice.
