Congratulations it's the m***** ******* chasers. The highly anticipated album "DC4" by Meek Mill released on October 27,2016 the day before he headlined Power 99's annual Powerhouse Concert here in Philly. If you follow me on Twitter it's full of Meek lyrics right now. I've been waiting for this since DWMTM (that went #1 in case you forgot) The internet is still buzzing about the DC4 and so are the charts. Yesssssss his new album is coming in at the number one spot on various charts as it should. DC4 features his queen Nicki Minaj, Tory Lanez, Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo, Don Q, Young Thug, 21 Savage, YFN Lucci, Tracy T, Pusha T, Guordon Banks, French Montana, and Lil Snupe (R.I.P to Lil Snupe). Meek definitely took his time with this project and worked with Jahlil Beats, SR Beats, OZ,Rara, Pyro, Tarik Azzouz, Sonny Digital, Dj Ryu, Beat Bully, Butter Beats, and MP808 to name a few. The lyrics are fire, the beats are dope, and the videos to accompany the album are litty. Despite what the media says about him he doesn't quit and he continues to do his thing. So last year I dropped an article on The Mogul Minute about why 2015 was big for Meek so of course I had to drop one about 2016. So let's get in to it!
1. DC4 LIFE
First of all , I love this album. I think Meek wanted us to really feel his story, feel his pain, be motivated , get stronger , and shine on everybody that doubted or prayed for a downfall. He chose really dope artist to feature on his album. So the versatility and creative collaborations are major. The album def has a song you're going to feel heavy. He def is letting everybody know that he's Blessed Up and that You Know he's going to keep it Litty . Blue Notes is one of my favorite songs. Again this album is Way Up on the charts we're talking #1. Now that's how you Shine On The Regular . So at the end of Tony Story 3 did you all peep the part four gone be a movie ? Maybe we might actually get a full movie style - visual for all of Tony Story. His wrist still Froze and he proudly wears his D.C. chains so we can see that s***. The Difference, Lights Out, Two Wrongs, Offended, definitely are hot tracks. So from track one to the outro "DC4Life" is straight heat.
2. HIS SON PAPI STARTED KINDERGARTEN
Meek posted this picture of Papi on Instagram in celebration of him starting Kindergarten. That definitely is a big moment to be proud of. It's good to see this. Meek is a proud dad before anything and he is happy to give his son the opportunities and the life he didn't have.
3. MEEK AND NICKI STILL LIVE TOGETHER !!!
On "Froze" Nicki said "Meek and I still live together" and Meek told Noisey Raps in a recent interview that " I wake up in my bed and I just look at Nicki , like man this sh*t has gotta be a dream because we used to dream all this sh*t and it's just going on right now ". So haters might as well give it up , they winnnnn! Both Nicki and Meek had another successful year. Nicki covered Marie Claire magazine and did a very heart felt interview about her career , her life, being a boss, girl power, her upcoming TV series, Yonce and Jay-Z, and how black women also carry the weight of racism and murders of husbands and boyfriends. Nicki also released her eighth fragrance Trini Girl. These two have been putting in work as always . You can't help but be proud of that!! Ouuuuuuuuuuuuu!
4. MEEK RELEASED HIS NEW DREAMCHASER COLLECTION SNEAKER "BLAZE OF GLORY AND BASKET " WITH PUMA
Meek's "Blaze Of Glory And Basket" sneaker collaboration with Puma released in July. The sneaker launch was held at Foot Locker in the Roosevelt Mall in Philly. Meek signed autographs and took pics with the supporters that came out to see the debut of the sneaker inspired by Philly and Bike Life.
5. MEEK WAS FEATURED ON THE SOUNDTRACK FOR BIRTH OF A NATION
The song "Black Moses" by Pusha T ,Meek Mill, and Priscilla Renea is featured on the soundtrack. The track is one of sixteen songs that add a musical story to the importance of Nate Parker's film. The track idiscusses slavery, fighting for freedom, injustice, incarceration, and believing in God to handle it. The soundtrack features major artist and all of them helped to make a project and create perfect songs for such a powerful film.
6. HE DROPPED A LITTY FREESTYLE ON FUNK FLEX
The freestyle said it all! He ripped this.
Meek puts on for Philly. He's chasing his dreams and living them at the same time. He work hard it's evident. So it's obvious that all you gotta do is not give up . No matter what people say as long as you believe in yourself and stay focused , you can do anything!
I had to drop this article. Make sure you read last years article if you all haven't yet.
Three days later and I'm still floating from Beyonce's Philly "Formation World Tour". I'm literally beaming. After the release of "Formation" on Tidal and her powerful Superbowl performance we all knew the Queen was up to something. Then her promo for her tour comes across the TV screen. If you're anything like me you were up early on February 10th to get tickets for the show ( I got mine in the pre-sale) . Where were you when "Lemonade" dropped on HBO and Tidal on April 23, 2o16? Beyonce is iconic. She is doing what she loves and what she dreamed of as a little girl and it's just magical to see. "Lemonade" is a musical production that will always be remembered. The emotional stages that Beyonce and her large team ( which she credited) brought to life on her album and visuals is strong, creative, sexy, relative, loving, sincere, informative, edgy, steamy , and hard.
Finally June 5, 2016 arrives my mom and cousins arrive at Lincoln Financial Field. The skies are gray, rain in falling ( lots of rain) , but the smiles laughs , prayers, and excitement still fills everyone's face. I saw "IVY PARK" apparel, fans in Formation merch, and fans in their favorite Beyonce styles. After the approval for us to go to our seats was given we entered. My Mom and I sat in Section 222 Row 1. The seats were great by the way ( I'm so glad I could surprise her with tickets she's my best friend, love you mom) . The sun was coming out, our clothes were drying and we were smiling and laughing and thankful that God let the rain stop. The LFF started to fill with more of the beyhive. Music fro Sevyn Streeter, Chloe & Haley, and Yonce's "IVY PARK" ad played as we waited for the concert to start.
DJ Khaled's booth started to light up and then Mr. Major Key himself hit the stage and brought out Yo Gotti, The Young Gunz , Rick Ross, and Meek Mill . The day was already off to a hot start. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know how hype I was (laughs). So the audience is already excited and awaiting Beyonce to slay. After DJ Khaled's set a couple minutes passed and then the lights dropped and the roar of the audience and the energy just spread through thousands. Beyonce's intro popped up on her giant screens and it was officially time to get in Formation.
I will post clips from my Instagram of me turned up below. I'm yelling "I see her". The Lincoln Financial Field officially lit up and everyone was ready to party on a Sunday night with Beyonce, My mom, my row, and I are screaming, singing, dancing, and having a great time. Just watching the happiness from everyone around as we all watched our favorite do exactly what she loves. It's truly the definition of art and passion. I'm watching her perform "Crazy In Love, "Don't Hurt Yourself, "Me, Myself & I" , "All Night", "Hold Up", "Freedom", and "Naughty Girl", just to name a few and going "Oh my goodness we're really at her concert. Like we're really seeing her , like ahhhhhhh". This was my second time seeing Beyonce live in concert. I might have been 13 when I saw her the first time . This time at 24 I really got to party it up and slay . Beyonce is just beautiful, gracious, funny, and just amazing to see perform. The fact that her set was just mind blowing. She made sure that her fans no matter where they were sitting in the arena could see her and not miss any of the show. Hearing Beyonce say "The best relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself", hearing her say " I'm a very country girl from Houston Texas, I am you and you are me If I can be up here I promise you can do anything, all you have to do is dream there's gone be blood, sweat, tears, haters, but you gotta fight and you will be here I promise you " . She's just so gracious, inspiring, and it was just an amazing night. Thank you Beyonce for never giving up and for grinding and really being a star! Thank you to everyone for being apart of her team and making the Formation World Tour incredible. I have to go back September 29th. Beyonce is truly one of the greats and she slayssssssss. Thank you TIDAL.

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. For more info check it out here
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
The years not over yet either we still have 25 days left.
