Gillie talks about the "diamond tester challenge" and how it led to Soulja Boy threatening to slap him.
In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, Gillie Da Kid has revealed the full story behind his beefÂ with Soulja Boy, citing a photo that the latter posted on Instagram as being at the root of the problem.
âThese rappers get caught out here fraud: fake money, fake jewelry,â Gillie began for context. âIâm all the way in Philadelphia and I seen this shit going on in Philadelphia with the fake jewelry. So I went and bought a diamond tester and I started the DTC challenge. The diamond tester challenge. So any time I see a rapper I pull that motherfucker out and I say, âLetâs do the challenge.â And if you say, âNo.â I wanna know why because you have diamonds on. So why wouldnât you want to do the diamond tester challenge? You feel me? And that got really big where Iâm from because a lot of rappers stopped wearing their shit because if we bump into Gillie heâs gonna ask Â us to do the challenge. And how I do it is I just set you up. I pull my phone out and say, âYeah, whatâs up man? Iâm sitting here with my nigga. We about to do this diamond tester challenge.â Now what are you gonna do? The cameraâs already running. What are you gonna say? So a lot of people stopped wearing their shit.
âSo, Soulja Boy got caught posing with some fake money,â Gillie continued. âSomebody atted me, and said, âDamn Gillie, Soulja Boy got caught out there. He might have to do this diamond tester challenge.â I look, I said, âDamn.â It was fake money. I said, âDamn, thatâs crazy.â Next thing I know, he was on my Twitter talking about he was gonna pistol whip me. Now who really could believe some shit like that?â
