Pill Went From ‘Zero To 60’ To Become ‘Hottest Breakthrough MCs Of 2010’ Candidate.
“Hottest Breakthrough MCs of 2010” Candidate: Pill
Fourteen months ago, Pill had the trap going ham for his street pharmaceuticals. The young rapper struck gold when he dropped his rugged video for “Trap Goin’ Ham.” Rapping with a Corona in his hand, he showed women in his neighborhood smoking Newports and dudes rolling blunts.
It was uncut, real and raw, and it gave you a flashback to that unflinching peak of ATL when some of the greats, such as Outkast and T.I., showed their lives in Georgia. Since then, Pill has become a favorite of hip-hop bloggers with his mixtapes 4180: The Prescription, 4075: The Refill and 1140: The Overdose.
“It’s surreal, man. When you start off, you hope you can make it to this place,” Pill said of his growing popularity. “4180 was my first solo project ever. I went from zero to 60.”
With that trilogy done, Pill is working on a brand-new tape, sans the medicinal theme, with DJ Holiday and the Empire. His debut LP should be dropping sometime in the fourth quarter or top of 2011.
