Big Mike, who is credited with discovering one of Rick Ross’ latest signees, Pill, wishes his longtime friend much success at Maybach Music Group.

“I’m happy that Pill is over there at Maybach,” Mike said to MTV’s “RapFix Live.” “I’m really hoping he gets the shot that he deserves because I feel like a lot of people have been heard in front of him who are not as dope as him, coming out of our region. And I really want my little bro to get the shot to be the star that he is and deserves be.”

“My cousin first introduced me to him,” said Mike of his history with the young rapper. “They went to the same high school together. They went to the same high school I went to.”

Pill appeared on Mike’s I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, in addition to his Underground Atlanta compilation.
