Rapper Killer Mike recently appeared on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club with Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlamagne The God to speak on a variety of topics including his upcoming album Pl3dge, Bubba Sparxxx vs. Yelawolf, and fellow Atlanta rapper Pill and his recent signing to Maybach Music.
“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.’”
Killer Mike later revealed that he was excited about Pill’s move to Maybach Music and that Rick Ross has been on his radar for quite some time.
“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.”
