Toronto-based OVO affiliated Reps Up crew rapper Gilla has been notorious in the hip hop underground over the last few years for flooding the web and streets with mixtapes, with his singles even popping up on The Weeknd’s blog. As a member of Reps Up – whose members include rapper P. Reign, Drake’s right hand man / bodyguard Chubbs, and Baka aka Baka Not Nice – Gilla’s debut single “Pray For Me” was produced by Grammy nominated producer Daniel Worthy (Drake, Yo Gotti, PartyNextDoor, The Game).
Known for his rugged flows and matching good looks – Gilla is a featured model for the OVO clothing line, and appears in their current lookbook – on “Pray For Me”, he spits lyrics of repentance over Worthy’s haunting bass-heavy beats. Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon – who Gilla has had a working relationship with over the years – makes a cameo appearance. “Pray For Me” is the first single from the forthcoming and highly anticipated “Stay Solid, Part Two” mixtape.
