Atlanta rapper Pill infamously split ways with Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group late last year. While speaking on Pill’s departure, Rozay told MTV News that he harbors no ill will toward the “Trap Goin’ Ham” rapper.
“I’m a real dude and I’m a real boss and once you rep the MMG flag, I’ll never step on your feet; I’ma give you a pass anyway,” said Ross from the set of French Montana’s “Shot Caller (Remix)” video. “”Pill’s situation was a special situation because he was already signed to Warner before I did my label deal at Warner. So when I did do my deal, it was a business opportunity that was presented where Pill could run with the team for a year. I took that opportunity.”
According to Ross, Warner Bros. decided not continue the relationship with Pill. This doesn’t exactly gel with Pill’s claims that he was asking out of his contract with the label. Nevertheless, Pill was adamant that he was only trying to move forward with his career (although he says he didn’t speak much to Ross) and not trying to disrespect MMG. Ross confirmed the latter.
“He made sure he reached out to me and called me and clarified,” Ross said. “He expressed that in no way was he disrespecting the team or the brand, because it was a great opportunity and a great look. Certain things happen for certain people at certain times and none of us could really predict that,” he explained. “I couldn’t predict that Meek Mill would bring ‘Ima Boss’ to me or we couldn’t predict that Wale would bring ‘That Way.'”
