Maybach Music Group Rapper Pill Airs Out Label Frustrations On Twitter


Atlanta rhyme peddler Pill forged a solid lane for himself after his gritty underground smash hit “Trap Goin’ Ham” blazed the Web and speakers for the better part of 2009.  After releasing four acclaimed mixtapes and inking a deal with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group imprint (which is distributed by Warner Bros. Records), the self-proclaimed “trap rapper” vented some frustrations regarding his career via his Twitter account (@Pill4180)  earlier today.

“No TV and No Radio.. U do the math,” tweeted Pill. Pill continued his tirade with, “I bet u can name you favorite artist and the turn on the tv and see the video and hear it on the radio. It’s not rocket science. Radio and TV b4 I had a deal, none after and u ask why Pill ain’t blew all the way up.”

Pill signed with Ross back in February and it was anticipated that the southern mainstay’s steady work and growing following would ensure stardom. Instead, MMG compatriots Wale and Meek Mill have dominated the charts, becoming the faces of the label–a point that Pill alludes to via his impassioned tweets.

“Artist sign deals, label doesnt do sh– for them or don’t even know to work the artist. time wasted,” added Pill. “Ask Wiz Khalifa what Warner Bros did for him. I’ll wait..dropped em. Atlantic signed em put em on TV and Radio and he sky rocketed,” Pill tweeted further.

Pill, who recently had to fight off rumors that he was dropped from MMG,  continued to rage on by rattling off some of his accomplishments, including his heavy tour schedule both in the States and overseas and naming various media outlets that covered his work. He also retweeted supportive words from fans, encouraging the rapper to continue on his path and saying fame will come in time.

Pill ended his Twitter rant succinctly with, “I shall remain true.”


The next logical question is, “What will Rick Ross have to say about this?”
