Pill has already established himself with three well respected tapes. Earlier this summer, Pink City’s own spoke with MTV about the success he had thus far and why he wasn’t in a rush to put release his debut album, The Medicine.
“I don’t want to rush it, because you know how a lot of people get signed and they drop an album ASAP, and nobody knows who they really are? I don’t want to fall victim to that,” he said. “[I'll] probably drop another two mixtapes and then be looking forward to the album. I don’t want to drop it on them. I want them to be like, ‘We need that Pill album,’ so I can give themÂ The Medicine.“
Iit appears the new school ATLien feels the time may be approaching to get the wheels rolling with the unveiling of his first single. J. Cole isn’t the only “freshman” looking forward to the day he sits at the top of the class as P-I-Double L looks to inspire those with the aptly titled “Blow Up.” Featuring labelmate Iyaz, Pill vents about what everyone desires (or should): to become successful in whatever path they chose in life. Pill is a musician, so having the world identify and appreciate his music is a fantasy of his. Everyone has to dream. While some are more realistic than others, that’s the first step in making them a reality.
