XXcLusive: Pill Explains Why OJ Da Juiceman Got Booed

Atlanta rapper OJ Da Juiceman made headlines last Wednesday (October 21) after he was booed during a New York performance at B.B. King Blues Club. Fellow ATL rookie Pill also hit the stage that night—which was a showcase put together by and that also featured hometown favorites Raekwon and Styles P—but he wasn’t subject to the same response. [Watch Below] recently chopped it up with the magazine’s current Show and Prove candidate to speak about his set and the crowd’s distaste for OJ.

“I mean the reaction I got was crazy because they actually embraced me and I got a lot of crowd participation,” he said. “With that crowd they wanted to hear niggas rapping. And no disrespect to nobody else but I think that was more of a hip-hop crowd that really wanted to hear some lyrical content. So that probably made it harder for OJ to get [the] reception that I did.”

Don’t get it twisted, though, Pill is a supporter and fan of the Gucci Mane’s protégé. “When I heard that they had booed him I was like, ‘Damn,’ ‘cause he home team. So you don’t wanna hear that no artist from the home team got booed, you want everybody to do their thing. “

“I don’t think it’s a reflection of [OJ’s] music as a whole, ’cause he make me do what it do, “ he continued. “He got a great fan base established, but I think it was just the crowd that was there.”

Pill, who’s Southern anthem “Trap Goin’ Ham” is steadily building the rapper a huge buzz, is prepping the release of his new mixtape, 4075: The Refill for release next month. —Jesse Gissen
