Maybach Music Group’s Masspike Miles has come forward to confirm that affiliated rapper Pill is not a member of the label’s roster, but also refuses to address his recent label woes seemingly aimed at Rick Ross.
Although he refused to speak on Pill’s recent rants, Miles wished him the best.
“When it comes to sh*t like that, I don’t even comment on it,” Masspike Miles told hip-hop personality Futuristic Blogger when asked for his opinion on Pill disassociating himself from Maybach Music Group. “I’m gonna keep it funky. Like I said, it’s about my loyalty, brotherhood and being positive. Any of that f*ck sh*t, I don’t talk about it. If he blogging, more power to him, I wish him the best in the future. It’s Maybach Music over here.” (Hip Hop News 24/7)
A few days ago, Pill denied ever inking a deal with Maybach Music Group.
“I never signed any paperwork with Ross. It was just my deal was over at Warner already,” Pill revealed to MTV News Tuesday. According to the “Trap Goin’ Ham” MC, he was signed to Asylum/Warner Bros. Records at the end of 2009, a year before Ross brought his MMG label over to Warner Music Group. Pill says he is unaware of any conversations that Warner and Ross ever had concerning his career, but started receiving calls from Rozay around this time last year. The calls turned into collaborations — many of which ended up on Self Made Vol. 1, Ross’ MMG label compilation album. It was alluded that Pill was officially a part of Rozay’s roster, along with Wale, Meek Mill and a host of other artists, but that wasn’t the case, the rapper says. (MTV)
Last week, Pill took to Twitter to unleash his label woes.
“No TV and No Radio.. U do the math. 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. Artist sign deals, label doesnt do shit for them or don’t even know to work the artist. time wasted. 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. Mind you, whn I signed I had one of the biggest records in 09? “Trap Goin Ham” never touched TV never touched radio. [sic]” (Pill’s Twitter)
Prior to those remarks, the Atlanta rapper killed rumors suggesting he split ways with Ross’ MMG.
Despite being the only artist of MMG — besides latecomer Stalley — without a radio single, Pill states that he was somewhat surprised to hear the whispers. “I’m not sure how they started actually,” he tells The BoomBox. “I noticed it when people started f—ing with me on Twitter, but I don’t know the source of it. I mean, it is what it is. It’s mostly Twitter — people that follow me or don’t follow me that hate on me daily, and wanna start s—.” (The Boom Box)
