The word “hustle” might just be the most overused word in hip-hop, but there’s really no better term to describe Pill’s ascension. Just a few months after the then-relatively-unknown ATL rapper made his DJBooth debut with Music, Pill is now a household name (in hip-hop households anyway) who’s signed to Asylum. Hustle partially explains his success, but the man’s music also can’t be denied, especially when it sounds like Thoughts. Featuring some absolutely crushing production by Tecknowledgy, Thoughts is Pill at his most lyrically intense; in the intro he promises to put his soul into the mic, and he delivers. I could do without the extended monologue in the middle of the track (don’t say it, rhyme it), but it’s a small complaint given the song’s undeniable energy. Thoughts is the first leak off Pill’s upcoming 1140: The Overdose Mixtape, which follows his Prescription and Refill mixtapes (get it?). Is there a Rehab mixtape on the way? You’ll have to keep it locked to DJBooth to find out.
