The Rapcast: Detroit's Red Pill Signs with Mello Music Group

January 30th, 2015

By Travis Wright

Michigan artist Chris Orrick raps under the moniker Red Pill. He's performed his way across the state of Michigan and beyond over the last six years.

But now, after signing a multi-album deal with Arizona-based Mello Music Group (home to artists such as Oddisee, Open Mike Eagle, Big Pooh and Detroit's Apollo Brown), Red Pill is set to expand his public profile as well as his private artistic process.

Orrick talked about his grind to get here, the state of the "white rapper" conversation, and what's to come in 2015 with WDET's Travis Wright.

Red Pill just released "Learning How to Punch" on Mellow Music. Check it out:
