Rumor has it that one of the four new rappers signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, along with Wale, Meek Mill, and Stalley, Pill, has been dropped from the label. Nothing is certain yet, but you can read a more in depth article below, courtesy of Karen Civil. I guess we’ll also have to see if Rozay makes anymore changes to the label now that Maybach is stopping production of their cars. But that’s a post for another time.
It has yet to be confirmed, but rumor has it that Pill’s been dropped from Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. While label mates, Wale and Meek Mill have achieved solo success, the Georgia native has struggled to find his footing.
In October, Pill sat down with The BoomBox and had this to say about his place on the MMG roster:
“I’m just getting back into the swing of things and trying to get things back popping the way they’re supposed to be,” he tells The BoomBox. “I don’t have no shots for anybody who’s ever worked with me. I’m just doing me. I’m doing my thing right now. I got a second cover of XXL, I’m on the BET cypher, you’ve seen me overseas in London with Mark Ronson, you’ve seen me on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ twice, you’ve seen me on ’106 &Park’ twice. You’ve never seen that before I had a management issue.”
That seems to be less of his problems. His recent show at S.O.B.’s in NYC was a bomb according to the Village Voice. And for what it’s worth, he’s been spotted lately without his coveted MMG chain.
Members from Pill’s camp were unavailable for comment
