Pill Talks Culinary Skills; Cooking Up New Mixtape

(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper Pill is hard at work on The Medicine, his major label debut for Asylum Records.

And while most fans recognize Pill for his verses on Killer Mike’s I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II and his single “Trap Going Ham.”

“[I cook] everything,” Pill told AllHipHop.com. “Chicken, corn bread, collard greens- a lot of southern dishes, like Macaroni. It was just a love of mines at an early age. All the guys in the family can cook.”

The Atlanta native said he received his culinary education through backyard barbeques and family gatherings.

“As a younger guy growing up, when you saw your uncles and them throwing fish fries and barbeques every other week day, you wanted to be the one on the grill because the one on the grill is the one with authority- better yet the one in the kitchen is the one with authority,” Pill reasoned. “It’s a prestigious quality that you embrace when you can actually cook in my family. If you can cook, you can basically get any woman you want.”

According to Pill, he has recorded with a variety of artists that may be featured on The Medicine, including Mark Ronson and Bun B and hopes to grab cameos from label mates Gucci Mane, Cam’ron and Lil Boosie.

“I look forward to working with all of them because they speak the same s**t I speak,” Pill continued. “I think it will be more relatable to the people if a group of guys like us can get on a track together and actually paint our pictures. It’s an honor to be on the same label as those guys.”

Pill is currently planning to release his mixtape 1140: The Overdose, prior to his major label release The Medicine.
