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.
