Rick Ross Speaks On Pill's Departure From MMG, Wishes Rapper "Success"

The Maybach Music Group founder revealed that Gangsta Pill's Warner Brothers deal landed him a one-year spot alongside Wale and Meek Mill, but even though they've parted ways, there's no bad blood.

In late 2011, Maybach Music Group member Pill began speaking out of his unhappiness with his group situation. As band-mates Wale and Meek Mill had stepped out with solo success, Pill - who began as a Grind Time Rap Gang member, wasn't reaching radio and television success. The Atlanta, Georgia native took to Twitter and voiced his displeasure.

In an interview earlier this week with MTV Rapfix, Rick Ross reacted to Pill's comments and clarified his role with the MMG quartet. "Pill's situation was a special situation because he was already signed to Warner [Brothers Records] 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," Ross told Sway. "I took that opportunity. That year ran its course and it was pretty much up to Warner what decisions they wanted to make with Pill as an artist after that point. I think they made it."

Ross was sympathetic to Pill's frustrations, and said it was industry climate that delivered Meek Mill a solo hit and Wale the momentum towards a sophomore solo album. However, the band-leader assured that there is no beef between Pill and MMG, "Hopefully, in the future he'll bring him a hit record, and get him some paper and do his thing...I wish him much success." The Miami, Florida rapper explained, "Once you rep the MMG flag, I'll never step on your feet."

    Everytime a Ross article is up its the same comments. He was a C.O.,he fat,liar,didnt go platinum,he cant rap,no hits,etc. I thought by name you haters would just say fuck it because no matter what you say he still is the biggest artist in the game. Everybody is fucking with the boy. Even your favorite artist and producers. YMCB,pharell, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre(biggest producer ever),Diddy,DBLOCK,etc. I can go on forever!!

    William is pathetic! First of all he is so "Flaw"(definition: Not genuine,so fake,phony,an impostor,not real)! This brother gets on the local station(99 JAMZ) and states that Tia was only his maid. What a joke! We all know that he was embarrassed that she spilled the beans to 50 cent! Personally I know he can rap, but on the other hand I don't respect a liar. Anyone can visit the state(correctional facility) and see Rick's picture is still posted on their wall. It's said when a person is not happy with being them self

    • Dade

    • Dj Khaled + Rick Ross

      if u think about it dj Khaled and Ross is one (a team) just like how jeezy came out with drama as a team he needed his dj eversince jeezy said fuck drama and separated from him it wasn't the same.. Ross and Khaled together is multi-platinum (albums and singles) they both on the same label and on the same songs

    william doesnt say a bad thing about anyone because he knows if he does they will bring up his past and the fact his a phoney and he lives off other people co signing him it makes his fans think everyone likes him watch him sign some new people before his album drops to get a buzz like he always does

  • IWASTHERE

    Pill got dropped the minute he stunk up the MMG BET Cypher.

  • Rich Flair WOOOOOO

    I heard this fat nigger got raped while working in a prison so that's why he turned to rap....

  • Rich Flair WOOOOOO

    Didn't this fat nigger used to be a C.O.? What a fucking joke...

    • Mr Flamboyant

      LOL at Brandon's faggot ass response. Dude...are you sicking his duck, you bitch ass nigga?LOL! Wow. "It obviously shaped who he is as a person". What's that exactly? A full fledged LIAR? LOL! (shaking my head)...stans say the silliest things with the damn dumbest logic. Eat a dick, you chump.

    • Rich Flair WOOOOOOOOO

      U obviously some uneducated white boy BRANDON. U don't find it a lil strnage that Ross raps about being a drug dealer and knowing big time criminals yet he once worked in a prison as a guard? Shit's a lil hypocritical, contradictory and foul if you ask me or any other real nigga walking this earth. Rick Ross is a phony which would be a little easier to accept if the nigga could actually rap, but he can't so fuck his fat black ass, let's hope he gets shot ASAP.

    • Brandon

      What does Ross being a CO have to do with him or his music as far as discounting him? It obviously shaped who he is a person.

  • Rich Flair WOOOOOO

    This fat nigger is stupid. Maybach should sue his diabetic ass.
