2015 was a big year for Philly signed MMG rapper
Meek Mill. Meek worked super hard this year and it's clear that he's ready to do it even bigger in 2016. With his own label and brand Dreamchasers. He has his hands in multiple things such as music, apparel , and I'm sure he's working on other things that he hasn't announced yet. So check out the five reasons below why 2015 was BIG for Meek Mill
1. #1 ALBUM
Meek Mill's second album "Dreams Worth More Than Money" was number 1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip Hop charts. The album was packed with catchy metaphors and hard lyrics. Meek Mill discussed numerous situations about his come up and success on the 14 track project. The album had hot features and needless to say his single "All Eyes On You" featuring Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown was ranked highly on numerous music charts. The album was fire and his fans and supporters definitely felt it. You can read my full review (here).
2. SCORED A DEAL WITH PUMA
Meek Mill landed a deal with PUMA as the ambassador and curator of the #PumaLife Collection.
Remember on Meek Mill's song "The Trillest" he said "Couldn't get a pair of PUMAS we up in the store now". Literally he is. I have to say it's really cool to walk into a sneaker store and see a giant poster of Meek styling and profiling with his PUMA collection. The collection is really dope.

3. PARTNERED DREAMCHASERS WITH LIDS
Everyone knows Meek rocks some really cool hats. He also wears his custom "DC (Dream Chasers) chains in every city so you can see that S***. Well the boss of Dream Chasers linked with LIDS to put his custom badge on hats. So now you all can rock a DreamChasers hat too. You can purchase them
4. FEATURED ON THE SOUNDTRACK FOR "CREED"
Meek Mill kicked off his PowerHouse performance in Philly with his single "Lord Knows" and a dance from his son Papi. Meek's songs "Lord Knows" and "Check" are featured in "CREED" the biggest movie of the year. "CREED" produced by the incredible Ryan Coogler and starring the phenomenal Michael.B.Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone, and Phylicia Rashad was filmed in Philly. So featuring Philly artist Meek Mill twice on the soundtrack for the film was perfect. "Lord Knows" also features Tory Lanez. So having two songs in the biggest movie of 2015 is BIG time.
5. HE'S DATING NICKI MINAJ
All eyes were definitely on Meek and Nicki Minaj aka "Omeeka" this year. The power couple did their thing this year. Both of them worked hard separately but they also are a force together. Their affection and love for each other can't be denied. You can't miss the chemistry . Those million dollar smiles are gleaming from ear to ear. The couple rocked every performance and they made hot records together.
"All Eyes On You" which features Chris Brown and "Bad For You" were both hot records on "Dreams Worth More Than Money". So yeah Meek Mill is dating the beautifully talented Queen Nicki Minaj. Do you see the way they look at each other? Yeah I guess that's what happens when you put the realest and the baddest together.
So as you can see 2015 was big for Meek Mill so stay tuned to his Instagram to see what he's up to next @MeekMill

Are you excited about "Fantastic Four" ? The action packed Sci-Fi film based on Marvel's original comic book . I am !!! The movie is about four young outsiders whom teleport to an alternate dangerous universe which alters their physical form and gives them superhero abilities . F4 releases August 7, 2015 world wide. MJB takes on the role of "Johnny Storm" whom can engulf his entire body in fire and he can also control fire. The film is directed by Josh Trank. One things for sure this role is going to be straight fire , the cast is amazing, and everyone can agree that Michael .B. Jordan is definitely a hot commodity. So MJB get your flame on and continue to be the trailblazer that you are #HumanTorch style!
Actor Michael. B. Jordan is truly an sensational . I can't wait until the day we all see him give his first of many Oscar acceptance speeches with his heart warming smile. There's no doubt about it , that this young man works hard and definitely deserves numerous awards, tons of congratulations and applause, and don't forget for everyone to go see him on the big screen. He is superb and absolutely fantastic , and here's four reasons why.
Its just something special about him when you see him on screen . He's super captivating and makes you feel his character. In the new Rocky spin-off "CREED" which releases in November , MJB plays Apollo Creed's son Adonis whom comes to Philadelphia to be trained by Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stalone). Michael worked really hard along side real life Celebrity trainer Corey Calliet to get his body toned up for his role as Adonis. The movie also stars the beautiful Tessa Thompson . This is going to be huge considering its the 40th anniversary of the Rocky .
MJB trained super duper hard for this film directed by the incredible Ryan Coogler whom also directed "Fruitvale Station" in which MJB portrayed 22 year old Oscar Grant whom was fatally and wrongfully murdered by a police officer in Oakland, California on January 1, 2009. Michael has the ability to be very compelling.He's definitely in a league of his own and he's going for the win. He's powerful, influential and strong!
A lot of times people are scared to stand up for what they wholeheartedly believe in because they fear how others will judge them, their career, or they don't feel others will believe in their cause. When "Fruitvale Station" was released it showed how blatant young black males are killed by police on the big screen . We see it in the news all the time but its rarely shown in a film. Ryan Coogler deciding to share a story that not only was real but one that hit so close to home and pulled on so many heart strings globally was epic and unforgettable. To have Michael a black male whom is so close to the age of Oscar take on this role and bring life to Oscar's story so truthfully and honestly was mind blowing. The film showed you how much MJB is willing to stand up , make some changes, and take on roles that are daring, mind provoking, important , and challenging. He is also apart of the non-profit "Blackout". Blackout is a network of filmmakers, spiritual leaders, musicians, advocates and more whom stand up for victims whose human rights are violated in the USA. You can find out more about "BlackOut" on www.blackoutforhumanrights.com. As a young man to stand up for human rights, for justice, for equality, for change, and for peace is inspiring and bold and we definitely need more people like him in today's world!
4. HE'S THE MAN
Michael.B. Jordan is the man to watch! 2015 is going to be an amazing year for him. So far he has two major films releasing and I'm sure he has some more epic things to come. Over all he's the true definition of an actor with versatility, a human with a heart, and a mind with big dreams . Whether he's making you laugh in a film such as "That Awkward Moment" or making you shed tears , Michael . B. Jordan is definitely the one to watch. He's stylish, handsome, assiduous, and he's the man.
P.S . I met Michael.B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler on the set of "CREED" in Philly as a background actor thanks to Heery Casting of Philadelphia . To see them in action is marvelous and exciting. Congratulations and much success! Flammmeeee On! Now I'm thinking an interview would be perfect!!
