Maybach Music Group may be killing it on the airwaves right now, but at least one of the label’s artists is unhappy with the work they are putting in. Atlanta rapper Pill, who signed to the Rick Ross-led MMG late last year, took to Twitter this week to vent his frustration about the way the label has managed his career. “No TV and No Radio.. U do the math,” he started his rant. “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.”
He also took swipes at Warner Bros., which distributes for the label: “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. Now go back and do your research and see what unsigned artist was neck n neck with Drake’s So Far Gone in 09’ Pill 4180: The Prescription. If I remember tht list correctly. It was Nicki Minaj, Drake, Pill, Wayne, Jeezy. Nw what the hell ws a new cumber like me doin on that list? Because IM DOPE!! That’s why, u ain'’ gotta believe it but I know it and won’t ever stop until I get that spot I deserve. Peace. Thanx.”
Fans immediately flooded his timeline with shout outs, but it’s clear Pill needs more than a little reassurance to feel good about his label.
