Video: Pill Has Andre 3000’s ‘Stamp Of Approval’


via MTV Mixtape Daily

“To have his stamp of approval, me being from the A and idolizing them — him and Big [Boi] — for him to hit you and quote your lines on the tape, I was like, ‘Oh!’ ” Pill said. “I was like, ‘For real? That’s what’s up! I appreciate it.’ He’s top-five to me. … I was like, ‘I might know how to rap a little bit.’ ” Pill is a former protégé of onetime Outkast affiliate Killer Mike but has since ventured out on his own. While handing out copies of his mixtape earlier this year, he bumped into Three Stacks and gave him a tape. Andre called the next day with compliments.

“I didn’t think he’d ever listen to it or ever say nothing about it,” Pill said. “That gave me some more fuel to keep going. I was like, ‘OK yeah, maybe I need to actually keep on going.’ ”

Dre is just one of many to join Pill’s fanbase since 4180: The Prescription came out in February. The tape has generated enough interest that Pill has been performing at clubs and high-profile events such as the recent CMJ Music Seminar. The mixtape’s frantically paced “Trap Goin’ Ham” has been one of the year’s big underground sleeper hits. The equally gritty video and ode to a day in the trap had people wondering what the hell “goin’ ham” meant. He said “ham” is slang for “mayhem.”

“It’s just a street term we use down there. ‘Ham’ is just like off the meter,” Pill explained. “Don’t nobody know where it originates from. I ain’t going to sit here lying, like, ‘Oh, I made that up.’ That’s just a slang term in the A. Everybody said, ‘That thing going ham.’ I just thought of making a song about the trap goin’ ham.”

Pill also pointed out that “ham” is a universal term that could apply to the trap, a strip club or a ten-piece of chicken.

On Tuesday, Pill released the Bizness-produced “Hear Somebody Comin’,” which is the first song from his new mixtape 4075: The Refill, due November 17.

    Do you really wanna see a Jay-Z vs. Beanie Sigel battle? You bloodthirsty rap fans kill me. I had a front row seat for Hov and Nas and this ain’t it. This is ugly. Sad. Disturbing. B Dot can’t even sleep at night. Ha! Seriously, we all loved the Roc dynasty and what it meant to hip-hop culture but obviously it died. Out of the ashes, came the rise of Kanye West. Ever heard of him? He’s pretty good. Beans needs to move on. Pointing fingers and diggin’ up dirt from the past? What’s the point? As far as I know, he’s a free agent and can sign to whomever. Shit, he could put out a mixtape tomorrow that could impact and change the game. (See Drake) Nobody’s stoppin’ him! What does he gain from throwin’ his mentor under the bus at this point. It actually discredits how good of a rapper he is. Be clear: Sigel’s self-destructive moves (guns, drugs, attempted murder charge) are the biggest culprit in his inability to become a superstar. Not shady business. I hope this whole thing blows over soon. Fuck a pause. And fuck anyone who’s riding with this frivolous fuckery. Team Carter on this one. Still.

    50’s not gonna sign you Beans. And if he did there’s no way you’re gettin’ 800K these days. While you’re lamenting missed opportunities from the past, your old boss is on to the next one. He just made a great album when’s the last time you can say the same? You were a loyal soldier and the anchor of the boat but the Roc-a-fella cruise ship crashed when Jay and Dame broke-up years ago. The glory days are over. Let the past go. No more sponsors. New beginnings. Make a big record

  18. CassavaLeaf Says:

    Just watched that DJ Drama on CNN and after watching the panel about the Black Men in the Age of President Obama, I’ve failed to realize is why so many people are using Pres Obama as a crutch to their lame excuses. There is no reason for any man not to be a “good” father to their kids; they didn’t ask to be here.

    So I assume DJ Drama was a deadbeat, a shithead father? He neglected his kids and treated their mother like trash? So what now? You now throw them a check and still treat their mother like trash?

    It’s sad that men are wanting props and giving props to Obama for doing something that they’re suppose to do as men. I lost all respect for this dude and some of the people on the panel. I feel offended and insulted as a struggling single father.

    I take it that more African Americas are going to start getting married, instead of just creating baby mothers? If so, why did it take Obama to do this? Obama inspired Farrah Gray to all the sudeen wanting to be married and have kids? Like really, are you serious? Mind you , this was a man that didn’t want to get married and procreate to continue his legacy. What did he want before?

    But all the sudden, people are having life changing moments due to a man that sitting in DC in which no one can get within his vision.

    Dr. Perry was the only one who had a sense of self- reliance on that panel. Being that I’ve set an example as an African-American father, shouldn’t my picture be right up there next to Barack’s? Where the logic behind that?

    Amazing how a grown man being a role model to another grown man. I thought role models are people you know, and have had a personal effect on your life.

    People we need to wake up. Stand up and take accountability for your actions. Be what Allah has blessed us to be.

    It’s okay. Better than The Solution (but what isnt?), but way more filler than crack. I copped it physically the first day, and havent listened to it more than twice. As dope as Beans is, he’s never made a wack beat into a dope record. Dwight needs incredible production to really shine.

  22. CassavaLeaf Says:

    Also, when the fuck did Drama become black? How the fuck can he speak for the AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY?

    that shit is kinda disgusting and fucking CNN should be appalled

    that’s worst than calling Ray J a rapper

    because he is affiliated with rap music these mainstream networks think that DJ Drama speaks for African Americans when he himself isn’t

    Camel and Cam vs. Dwight and Curtis would be epic…if this was 2004. None of those niggas is performing at peak levels right now. But yea, it’d still be interesting, and I’m sure we’d get at least one hilarious outro from Fif and one blistering verse from Beans. So yea, maybe it would kind of epic…I dont know about anything anymore.

    lol. Nah i was just listening to the Cam diss for both of them and was just laughing away. I’d prefer Cam + jay cause then Cam could get Kanye beats on his next album.

    But i doubt they’ll even be a proper beef at all anyways. Just saying.

  27. Joe 88 Says:

    The solution was fucking terrible, I didn’t think it was possible for beans to make a album that wack.

    Beans needs soulful beats to really show his talent, or maybe he needs to hook back up the dude that did the beats on the 2 state p albums, chad west I think his name was.

    But right now, i’d tackle a grizzly bear for a scarface/beans album, shit, i’d do it for a mixtape mash up of some of there old work. To hear beans rap over “never” or scarface spit over “change gon come” would be classic

    I salute you, breaking a habit that you’ve had before you became an adult has to be one of the hardest things to do (n) belive me, i’ve tried, it’s hard for me to make it thru a week w/o smoking or buying a drink. Like i’ve said, I did it earlier this year, for a cool 3 months, but fell back into the habit after my b-day. Makes me mad I even started

    Beezy? lol, all bullshit aside his rolling has gotten better. So now I point a gun at him and ask him which hand he rolls up with in honor of the time when Beanie Sigel wasnt a whiny bitch. You should see his face (ll).

    It was actually a combo of a failed drug test for an alcohol class, and honestly just realizing that it was becoming a hinderence to me succeeding in life on a meaningful level.

    Word, I did the same. No alcohol for a little over three months, got wasted one weekend, and felt myself being pulled back quicker than I anticipated. I caught ahold though before it got retarted again. My goal is to not drink until New Years. I’m pretty sure I can pull it off…

    @ Iceberg

    I mean, there is no answer, Beans has never really been a “radio” artist, even at his peak. So that question in and of itself doesnt prove his irrelevance.

    But, rap the chorus of “Roc the Mic” to her. If she doesnt recognize it, you’re girl’s mad corny, no shots.

    You girl prolly likes Jay-Z because you like him (n) And I know plenty of girls that knows who beanie segal is, prolly can’t name a recent song, but there aware of who he is.

    So it’s not like some random ass guy that no one knows is going at hov, it’s beanie segal, and obviously your girl isnt a hip hop head so she shouldn’t know who he is, but you being a hip hop head knows who beanie is, and prolly own a few of his albums

    I love how nowadays, rap fans are more than just fans, we’re (i’m speaking about myself to) accountants, promoters, producers, etc of rappers we’ve never met, we come up with imaginary numbers that new albums are gonna generate, and what group of people are buying the albums.
