Career- In early 2009 Pill's first mixtape 4180: The Prescription and his first single "Trap Goin' Ham" was released. While his lead single rapidly spread outside of his hometown of Atlanta, his mixtape drew in millions of fans. It garnered such a national frenzy in the underground hip-hop circuit that music industry executives were soon knocking on his door. Receiving offers from every major record label including industry heavyweights such as Universal Motown, Def Jam, Atlantic, and Interscope, he chose to sign on the dotted line at Warner Music Group through their Asylum imprint. With his deal finalized by the end of the year, his career continued to take off running. He went into 2010 fresh with his second mixtape 4075: The Refill and landed on the cover of XXL Magazine's April Issue featuring the top 10 hottest new MC's of 2010. Being consistent in releasing quality hip-hop music he has continued to cultivate his fanbase and receive high acclaim from the press. He has earned a multitude of esteemed reviews from veteran critics and has gained features in various publications including The New York Times, Vibe Magazine, The Fader, Spin Mag, The Source, Complex, The Atlanta Examiner, Ozone Magazine, and more. In June of 2010 he released his third mixtape, 1140: The Overdose, a Gangsta Grillz Edition hosted by DJ DRAMA. The enormous response from music fans and critics alike has confirmed that this young rising star has staying power in a business that can sometimes be very much undecided. With a number of downloads that has surpassed the million mark and continues to rise daily Pill continues to prove that he is a definite force to be reckoned with. His fans will only continue to show support watching every move that this young star makes with a bright future on the horizon. His most recent credits/appearances include: performing live Late Night on the Jimmy Kimmel show, a role in a major motion picture "96 Minutes" (directed by Aimee Lagos, distr. by Warner Bros., due out later this year), and a documentary project highlighting the issue of public housing in his hometown of Atlanta, GA (directed by the UN for discussion in Switzerland).
