Meek’s sophomore is coming at summer’s end
It’s been quite a ride for Meek Mill. Signed to Rick Ross‘ MMG label in 2010, became an internet sensation after his Dreamchasers and Dreamchasers 2 mixtapes, dropped his debut album, started getting praise from every reputable rapper in the industry, and now he’s probably the most reliable face of East Coast street rap since the Roc-A-Fella/Dipset hay day. His debut album sold fairly well in its first week on the charts, but was a slight disappointment considering the hype surrounding it. Fortunately for Meek, and us, he seems determined to make sure that doesn’t happen again. With two certified bangers floating around the streets and radio (“Off The Corner”, “I Don’t Know”), another one on the way “B-Boy f/ A$AP Ferg & Big Sean“, and a scene stealing verse on DJ Khaled‘s latest summer anthem, Meek hasn’t really settled in yet and he’s ahead of 2012’s pace.
He just announced the release date of his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money (MMG/Atlantic): September 9th, which gives him the rest of the summer to heat up as much as possible. We got an early listen of the album, and take it from us. Look out.
