Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Gillie Da Kid
Title: Do Your Job
Label: Figgas 4 Life Entertainment/Koch Records

The Philly kid named Gillie may have more drama than a DJ but he's definitely considered a don when firing his lyrical cannon, so much so that several major labels got into a bidding war for his services. If he can avoid being shot again and avoid beefing with the similar sounding Lil Wayne (whose voice is just a little scratchier) then Gillie's probably destined for stardom. That's the good news. The bad news is that "Do Your Job" is as monotonous a track as you will hear in 2008. Producer Young Ike Turna is not aptly named, as his ad nauseam three note loop is not something Tina would have crooned over in a million years. Gillie shouldn't be rapping over it either - it's not suited to his talent and literally drags his rap down into mediocrity. The intent feels like Gillie wanted a club beat, and it may work on that level, but the topic matter about haters doesn't feel like something to dance to. This is not Gillie's finest work.
