During a radio appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club with Angela Yee, DJ Envy and Charlamagne The God, Killer Mike discussed several topics, including the upcoming release of his album “Pl3dge,” and fellow ATL rapper Pill signing with Maybach Music Group.
“I never understood what it was like to have people’s destiny in your hands and not be able to do for them in a way they deserve until I couldn’t get Pill and [SL] Jones a deal immediately,” Killer Mike explained. “I laugh when everybody be going crazy ‘Pill! Pill! Pill!’ And they be like ‘Mike, I didn’t realize that was the kid that was on the Grind Time records.’ And I was like ‘Cause you didn’t listen to them you liar.’”
Later, Mike shared his enthusiasm over Pill’s decision to call Maybach Music home.
“I’m ecstatic about it. First of all I been a Ross fan when all of you liars weren’t so I was already real big on Ross,” said Killer Mike. “I think Deeper Than Rap is a seminal classic and should be heralded with the best rap records ever made…So when I heard Pill was going over there I thought absolutely the right place to be. He’s with another fat guy, that’s always cool. He’s with Meek Millz who’s incredible. He’s with Wale who I like a lot. But I just think that he’s dope and this gives him the platform he deserves and I really hope the world opens up to my lil bro.”
