Wins & Losses the latest album from Meek Mill peaked #3 on the Billboard Charts. His song "Fall Thru" is produced by G Koop and IBeatz . The video shot by Spike Jordan just released. This 4:22 visual shows an affectionate side of the Philly rapper. The video features fashion designer Latoia Fitzgerald as the leading lady. When the album dropped in July, this track instantly became a favorite of mine. The visuals to Meek Mill's 1942 Powerhouse performance is also available to watch . Make sure you continue to support the DreamChasers and Meek Mill .

Meek Mill is still incarcerated and awaiting a new bail hearing date. So many celebrities have come out to support Meek including Rev. Al Sharpton , Jay Z , T.I, and Colin Kaepernick . Jay Z posted this "The sentence handed down by the Judge -- against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer -- is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career". The city of Philadelphia is standing up for Meek all the way so we are waiting for his release and him to get back to his family and music.. #Dreamchasers . His case is also shedding light on the unjust justice system and mass incarceration .
This year Meek Mill has accomplished numerous ventures. He's put in hard work and that can't be discredited no matter what. The Philly born artist has continued to inspire and motivate his city and the world through his music and his story. Recently he attended the 76ers game at the Wells Fargo Center and brought along youth from the Boys&Girls Club to enjoy the name . Meek has always found a way to give back during his busy career and still be there for his family and friends. In recent and shocking news on Monday (Nov. 6), Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years for violating his probation in a nearly decade old case. It's ridiculous and people are speaking up about the injustice . There's an issue that Meek has been sentenced to more time then a police officer or a block watch captain that have harmed or killed an unarmed African-American. This news has stirred up so many people including celebrities such as Jay Z, Kevin Hart, T.I, and more. His lawyer Joe Tacopina told TMZ that "Judge Genese Brinkley is enamored with the rapper and crossed all conceivable lines." The question of both cases being dropped and still having to serve time just doesn't make any sense. A petition to Governor Tom Wolf has been started to show support for Meek Mill and get him out. The petition can be signed here . Despite this news this case can't knock his achievements this year. I released articles in 2015 and 2016 about Meek having a big year and here's five reasons 2017 is big for him too.
WINS AND LOSSES ALBUM
"Wins And Losses" is the third studio album from Meek Mill. The album charted #3 on The Billboard Charts. Meek told Elliot Wilson this album was a rap album and he was breaking down all the wins and losses. Sating the fact that even if it was a loss it was a lesson and winning is still on his side. This album featured Lil Uzi, Ty Dolla $ign , Chris Brown, August Alsina, Teyana Taylor and more. Meek addressed multiple topics on this album showing his growth and didn't hold back. He teamed up with a bunch of producers to help create the hot records on his project. He also did the promo shows with Tidal for the album his release. The Philly show was super lit. Seeing Meek hold that platinum plaque on stage for DWMTM was a happy moment. Get his album"Wins And Losses"
WINS AND LOSSES MOVIE
In a Power 99 interview Meek talked about teaming up with Philly's own Spike Jordan to create this film. He wanted to do something different to roll out the album. He also expressed he wants to start a production company for the youth to get involved in. Meek released multiple music videos for "Wins And Losses" as well as this film.
HE RECORDED OVER 200 SONGS
Meek told IHeart Radio he recorded over 200 songs this year. So even though we got an album and a few cuts on the Meekend Music releases he still has a lot of fire songs in the cut . The artist on his Dream Chasers Records label also signed YBS Skola and Omelly . So Meek has definitely been working.
RELEASED " ON TOUR WITH MEEK MILL"
This year he released "On Tour With Meek Mill" which lead up to his Meek And Friends Concert in Philadelphia. Meek brought out artist such as YG, DMX, Rick Ross, and more. He definitely rocked out and had a good time. The show showed the behind the scenes look at how members of his team handle different aspects of his business, how he wants to be understood , and how everything he does is for his son and family. The doc was directed by Philly's own Jamal Hill. This documentary also showed Meek giving tickets to his show to the youth.
MOTIVATION x 30
Meek Mill turned 30 May 6, 2017. At thirty Meek realized some things he needed to change in his life and he made them. He's not giving up and just like track 11 on the album he will never lose. Meek also spoke about the system at Van Jones "We Rise Tour" . As a man, a artist , and a human being ( let's not forget he's a person with real feelings with people that love him and care about him) he definitely needs our continuous support . So don't let the media discredit the motivation he provides or his dream chaser mindset.

The Fillmore, was the place to be Monday night in Philadelphia. Philly's own Meek Mill held a private pop-up show for his day one supporters. After a full day of press with KicksUSA, Sneakervilla, and BoomPhilly , he and his DreamChasers family landed at the concert venue. There were lines of Meek Mill supporters waiting to get in the show. Once you were inside you were given an exclusive TidalXMeekMill lanyard and your tickets . I was super amped about seeing the show in celebration of his third studio album "Wins and Losses" which released July 21, 2017. I brought my mom as my special guest . She was super excited and It was a great way to continue her birthday celebration. While waiting for the show to start Tidal gave out cool black and white Tidal bandanas and an opportunity to take a photo in The Bosco photo creative photo/video section. Of course my mom and I hit the booth. You also could take a snapshot at the Power 99 radio station. So we headed inside the actual concert area where there were lots of concert goers awaiting the arrival of Meek Mill. While waiting we mixed and mingled, snapped pics, listened to the music that was playing , and just chatted. My mom is my best friend. I'm so serious when I say that. Anyways, more and more people started to fill the room, and the anticipation got higher and higher and before you know it DJ Bran and Meek Mill were live in Dream Chaser color on stage. Instantaneously the entire place got litty. Meek has been around the world, but it's always special when he performs for PHILLY! I'm so proud! We come from the same city. That's motivation forever. Meek performed new tracks such as "Price" ( when he first posted a snippet of this song on the gram I legit couldn't wait for it to drop) , "Issues", "Glow Up" , "Whatever You Need" from his new album "Wins and Losses" and "Save Me" from Meekend 2 . He also performed some classics like "In My Bag" , The Dreams and Nightmares Intro ( which is like the Philly national anthem... hold up wait a minute yall thought I was finished) , "All Eyez On You " and a couple other tracks. His set was already turnt and then he brought out Reco Havoc, Omelly , Cardi B, Offset, and YBS Scola ! Talk about turned up ? Oh it definitely was. Its just amazing every time to see the city and Taylor Marie rap Meek lyrics word for word with so much love and support . Philly ride hard for ours , no matter what. Meek definitely rocked out on stage ! The set was dope and I think it was great that he did the pop up shows exclusively for the fans. I loved the show but seeing Meek come out on stage with that Platinum plaque for "Dreams Worth More Than Money" was everything. He even said "I wish he could give everybody in the audience one." Seeing him with that lets you know he's just going to keep winning. I'm proud! So that was the first of many to come. He's dedicated and determined and just like track 11 (my favorite number ) he can "Never Lose." So make sure you get "Wins and Losses" (here) and glow up! Huge thank you to Tidal and Meek Mill for the show ! I already have Tidal but to all the guest I hope you flipped your TidalXMeekMill lanyard over to get your complimentary 90 day free Tidal trial via www.tidal.com/meekmillfans

So Meek was serving up some heat to hold us over until the official release date for his third album.
"Wins and Losses" the new album from Philly's own Meek Mill officially released at midnight on all music streaming services. The 17 track project takes us on a ride through the highs and lows Meek faced. The album starts off with a positive message from Eric Thomas the hip hop preacher , followed by Meek quoting Isaiah 54:17 . Whether he's discussing personal relationships, fame, the streets, losing people he loved , living lavish ,making it big from nothing, or just getting litty. You are tuned in word for word. This album is undoubtedly personal. He expresses on his song "Heavy Heart" how he's been hurt for multiple reasons and how it's still troublesome to him in a way . He also speaks on having serious trust issues. Yet and still Meek appreciates his DreamChasers family and his supporters that ride for him regardless. The death of his friend/lil bro and artist Lil Snupe and other friends he's lost to the streets still way heavy on his mind and heart and has greatly affected him . However, Meek still pushes towards greatness and doesn't forget them no matter what he achieves . You already know Meek is going to put out catchy fire songs and spill his feelings at the same time. He also is going to put some super lit tracks to get you turnt up whether you're home , in the club , or in the car . Meek also expresses that he's forever thankful for Rick Ross signing him and loves that he can take care of his family and that there's no better feeling than his son Papi speaking French to him . The album def has hot producers and dope features. All in all Meek Mill just wanted to release a real rap album and speak on everything that got him to where he is today.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” - Dr.Martin Luther King Jr
After watching Meek Mill's new video "Young Black America" and "The O.J Story" along with the Footnotes by Jay Z I decided to write this article. I've always been very open about my feelings about racism and the mistreatment of blacks here in America. Recently I saw a video of a black man being attacked by a K-9 regardless of the reason he was being arrested, he was handcuffed, not fighting back , on the ground and the dog was still biting him. The officer had no control over the dog at all. It made me think of the black and white Civil Rights videos I saw growing up when the dogs were attacking black people for no reason. There are so many videos of blacks being mistreated, and hashtags of victims who have been murdered by police it's beyond heart breaking . Recently in the case of the murder of Philando Castile the cop was acquitted. A murder was live streamed and there was no punishment , that is a tragedy and its sickening and continues the injustice here in America. We wait for justice and it doesn't happen.
Poverty, unemployment, drugs, the school system lacking funds and credible teachers to educate students, single parent house-holds, little to no community funding, continue to create problems in communities nation wide . There are so many issues that one faces growing up dealing with these issues and some people go on to be great leaders and game changers and inspire others from the neighborhood. This only goes to show that your surroundings can either build you up, break you, or make you stronger.
There is a problem here in America where black men report that their job told them "The microwave and water fountain were for white only". Sad right? Racism is still alive! Let me make this clear as I have plenty of times before there is good and bad in all people including cops. It doesn't matter what race you are, if you're a good person or a bad person it shows through your heart , actions, and character. However, if your bad it shows too. The mass incarceration of black males is modern day slavery. Did you know in 2016 black males were still picking cotton at the Louisiana State Prison known as "Angola"(the country in Africa, from which many of the enslaved Africans came who worked on the former plantation that occupied this territory). Some prisoners get paid as little as two cents an hour.
The more we come together, build up ourselves and the communities the better we can be. Do not give up on yourselves. The stories that I've seen and heard from black males, my heart hurts for them. The fact that they feel as Michael B Jordan says " Being black in America is being in a tiny compressed box sinking in the bottom of the ocean with 10,000 pounds of pressure on you at all times". Listening to Marsha Ali say " The difference between black men and white men is black men move through the world playing defense". Keep these black males prayed up and uplifted. I put this Young Black America playlist together with songs from black hip hop artist whom are telling their stories, views, and experiences through music. I've also included some videos I think are important and should be viewed. No matter what we are all strong , we all face difficulty (males and females) but we have to face it and continue to push for greatness because Black Excellence is real.
THE MOGUL MINUTE : IN ORDER TO CATCH A DREAM YOU HAVE TO CHASE IT FIRST. MEEK MILL RELEASES YBA FT THE DREAM
Meek Mill third studio album "WINS & LOSSES" is on the way. Meek has let us hear a couple snippets during his live Instagram sessions and let's just say he's in his bag with bangas!!! He just released his new single "YBA" ( Young Black America ) ft The Dream produced by Street Symphony . The song discusses various issues that blacks deal with here in America including poverty, drugs, blacks being killed by whites and there's no conviction, black on black crime, felons not being able to get a good job so they turn to the streets for money, family issues and kids not having a wide perspective only thinking they could rap and play ball instead of going to school or being a lawyer . He talks about the system , males doing life sentences , pain a mama feels when her son is gone. This song is relative for so many reasons because a lot of young black males don't have the right influences so they get influenced by the wrong things just to make it , to feel love, or try to be accepted in circles they don't belong in . The video even includes the campaign speech from Donald Trump in which he directed towards blacks and said "You're living in poverty, your schools are no good , you have no jobs , 58% of your youth is unemployed-- what the hell do you have to lose ?" . As chilling as those words are the reality is that the system wasn't designed to treat us equally or to make things better for us here in America at all. It's a sad reality but our faith in God has to continue no matter what. Meek shares a lot of his stories as well as things he's been exposed to in his music . So check out the song below and watch the video and stay tuned for the official release date of "WINS & LOSSES"
THE MOGUL MINUTE : MEEK MILL, CHRIS BROWN , AND TY DOLLA $IGN ARE READY TO GIVE YOU "WHATEVER YOU NEED" (NEW MUSIC)
The Meek Streak continues. A few weeks ago Meek Mill played a few lit snippets of his unreleased tracks on Instagram live. I watched a few minutes and I remember hearing Chris Brown's vocals for a few seconds on one of the songs . So I highly anticipated hearing the full track . On May 6, 2017 Meek celebrated his 30th birthday and released a three track project entitled "Meekend Mu$ic" via MyMixtapez followed by music videos for "Left Hollywood" and "Litty" ft Tory Lanez. This week he released his new song and video "Glow Up" . One things for sure , Meek isn't letting up any time soon . I have a feeling that he's going to keep dropping banger after banger until he releases his full album . If you want to see Meek shut down the stage this summer , get your tickets to the "Against All Odds Tour" featuring Yo Gotti. Last night Meek Mill released his new single "Whatever You Need" featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign. The song samples the 1991 single "Whatever You Want" by Tony, Toni, Tone. This new track is produced by DJ Mustard. All three of these talented artist brought their unique styles and flows together to create a perfect mix of rap and R&B . This track is straight heat . Meek , Chris , and Ty Dolla $ign did their things with this one. FACTS!!!

Ethika includes products for everyone including men, women, and kids. If you are looking for a stylish collection of various pieces Ethika is definitely the place to go to. To add on to the fashion the Ethika brand also loves music. So much so they released a project of cultural expression titled "RGB". They chose the name based on the "Addictive Color Theory" . [The RGB process consist of three different addictive colors red, green, and blue. The colors are mixed together to form thousands of colors and give life to various images, digital media, TV screens, and more. When the colors aren't mixed they're one dimensional but together they become magical]. So Ethika applied the RGB concept to create the RGB Mixtape project. The project incorporates a mixture of their Ethika Familie and unique rap artist together to create the 11 song mixtape. Each artist also designed an exclusive Signature Ethika Product to accompany the project. So check out the track list and listen to the mixtape .
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.
