DJBooth is proud to announce that the

Pill

will be rocking on

our stage

for this year's

A3C Festival

in Atlanta. Pill's music is not a Hollywood, stylized version of what people perceive the streets to be. His life - and thus, his art - is a reflection of the grim realities of the streets. The real streets, not what you see on TV or what you hear glorified in modern day rap music. His music speaks to - and exists as - an escape from the paralyzing situations that have hindered his ability for creative expression thus far in his life.

From his independent releases to his signing with Rick Ross'

Maybach Music

, and his appearances on the hit

Self Made

album, his music is uniquely intelligent, but is still a true-to-form reflection of his life story. Simply put, Pill had to sell dope to survive as a child with no caretakers – and he sold dope to pay for his studio time – only for the reason to have a way out, an escape, a release – his music.
