The Pillmatic album was created and inspired by the connection between Basketball and Hip-Hop, two of the primary vehicles inner city youth use to express themselves in urban America. The term "Pillmatic" derived from the word "PILL", East Coast lingo used to describe a basketball. Having a profound love for both expressions, “Pillmatic” is heavily inspired by the Rawkus Records Soundbombing compilations of the late 90's, which served as the soundtrack for the legendary And 1 Mixtape Streetball Series. Produced by the highly decorated producer, PA. Dre, "Pillmatic" assembles a very profound roster of MC's including veterans Planet Asia, Herb McGruff, Sadat X , Shyheim, & Don Bishop Agallah paired with new school Gunners like Eto, Hus Kingpin, Smoovth, YNX, Big Ooh and Hottie Soprano of Buffalo New York's hottest collective "Black Soprano Family". PA. Dre excellently created a time capsule that is so delightful that even Oakland MC Mistah F.A.B. sounds like he was born in East New York.
