Never underestimate the power of a hit. Or 180+ of them, the number of songs that Drake has placed across several smash single forums in his decade working the ropes of the recording biz. For when Drizzy and Atlanta’s Quavo, Offset and Takeoff sold out the first of two shows for its “Aubrey & The Three Migos” showcase at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, there was little for the pairing to do, but perform its wealth of best-known songs. The fact that Philly’s own Meek Mill, Drake’s longtime nemesis, joined the party at the end of Drizzy’s set just made the night that much greater.
This past Monday night, Philly rapper Meek Mill called in for an interview on “CNN Tonight” to speak with Don Lemon, who also recently visited Meek in prison. In the interview, the two discussed Meek’s ongoing legal battle, Judge Genece Brinkley, and the status of Meek’s hearing in relation to the credibility of arresting officer Reginald Graham, who is the sole witness in Meek’s original 2008 gun and drug case.

Among the ongoing legal battle currently imprisoning rapper Meek Mill, the music video to his Wins and Losses cut “1942 Flows” has been released. The video starts off with muffled clamor from the press in a believable alternate reality, where one reporter asks, “Meek, you’re just getting out of prison, how does it feel to be part of the system?” To which he replies, “I feel like a free slave… It’s time to level up, to stand up and be the person I be. Set an example for the young brothers coming up.” Continue reading →
Philly MC Meek Mill takes a lot of shit and talks a lot of shit, whether he’s beefing with his hip-hop peers over ghostwriting and freestyling, getting ridiculed by certain segments of the music press or vowing to never get into digital rumbles ever again. Something that’s important to keep into perspective, though. Dude can rap, dude has a vision and a message, and he is driven to bring those things to his fans. Continue reading →

First Lady of Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers camp, Lee Mazin has emerged along with artist like Tink, Angel Haze and Nitty Scott MC as being the new guard of women emerging on the national hip-hop scene. Much like the other artists mentioned, Lee displays a distinct sound all her own.

Luckily I got a chance to briefly talk with Mazin and discuss working with her mentor Meek, along with her own music and what’s coming up in the future. Continue reading →
Meek Mill‘s album officially hit stores this week, but “All Eyes on You,” his single with Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown, has been buzzing on the internet after it surfaced last week. On Sunday night at the BET Awards in Los Angeles, Meek and Minaj were front and center. Being seen together in numerous camera shots throughout the night isn’t a bad look at all, but it’s their on-stage chemistry that seemed to have the crowd talking.
Starting his performance with a quick rendition of his club hit “Monster,” Meek quickly switched it up and brought both Brown and Minaj to the stage to perform the single “All Eyes On You.” The two obviously have more than just the “Bonnie & Clyde” type track in common, and this performance proved it. Check out the video below; Meek’s new album Dreams Worth More Than Money is available now. Continue reading →
