Swizz Beatz wrote, "Sending ultra love to you and your family during this time my brotha," alongside various broken-hearted emojis. Maino gave Gillie Da Kid his "energy and condolences" amid reports. Gillie Da Kid's podcast co-host, Wallo267, also shared his thoughts amid the tragedy. "Lil Cuz usually when I talk to you, I got a lot to tell you. Tonight the pain in my heart & tears spoke to you. I love you beyond life Cheese," he wrote, "I got your father, Rest Well."

Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy also recently discussed the death of YNG Cheese on The Breakfast Club. "What hurts so much about this situation," Charlamagne Tha God explained, "is as much as Wallo and Gillie do for the community of Philadelphia." "As much as they pour into these young brothers and try to stray them away from ... killing each other and gang violence. To have his son be a victim of gun violence is tragic and a reminder that life is indeed not fair, in no way shape or form."
