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.
Young Philly artist Lil Kazzy has consistently been in the studio. He released his video for the swag filled song "Swish" which featured his crew turning up as Kazzy rapped. His new song "Unwanted Tears" embodies the real emotion and pain of losing someone to the streets. At a young age he's expressing how much violence has affected him , the city, and how he wants the violence to stop. Take some time and watch the video and listen to his tracks , watch the video , and also check out a song he's featured on "You Got It" with Shay Amour.

Do you remember watching old films and seeing people gather around to listen to shows on the radio? TV and computers have provided a way for us to watch films, music videos, television shows and more.

Once you start listening to the series you won't want to tune out. I think this is a unique digital podcast that takes the listeners on a journey through the lives of of African Americans on the Southside of Chicago in the 1940's . It chronicles black players in the lottery games while illuminating the self-sustainability of the community’s African American residents . It consist of racial tension yet shows how this particular community attained the American dream. Bronzeville immersed the listeners into a historical yet entertaining series. As Larenz Tate said " Bronzeville is theater of the mind". I as well as so many listeners are hoping for a season two or for the audio podcast to become an actual TV series or a feature film . With the amazing team that The TateMen Entertainment, Audio HQ Productions, and Cinema Gypsy Production companies, a movie or an TV show would be epic. However, this version of the audio series has created an old time feel in a modern day world. where everything is visual. This series causes you to imagine, listen closely , and visualize with your mind. For more on the Bronzeville series and to listen to the episodes get over to www.bronzevilleseries.com . Congratulations to the the writer, production team , and all of the talent that brought this audio drama series to life.

"What we find is that if you have a goal that is very, very far out, and you approach it in little steps, you start to get there faster. Your mind opens up to the possibilities" - Mae Jemison ( first African American astronaut to travel to space)
Growing up I attended a private school. Everyday I looked at a picture of astronaut and engineer Mae Jemison on my teachers classroom door. I loved seeing a black woman in a her astronaut gear everyday. My parents even got me a telescope for Christmas one year. I couldn't have been happier.
I'm 25 and a few weeks ago I was discussing Hidden Figures with my mom and the fact that I had the experience as a kid growing up with knowledge that a black woman could do anything in the world including go to space. I felt that the film "Hidden Figures" greatly highlighted phenomenal women and allowed a new generation to be motivated and educated about how powerful woman are. So when astronaut and activist Taylor Richardson, sent me her story, I became so inspired. Her words blessed my heart in a special way , because she's bold, beautiful, thoughtful ,and willing to make her dreams come true and inspires her peers and even me to push pass "norms" and succeed at great lengths. Taylor is a star and I'm honored to have interviewed her. I know that she is making her mom , family , and friends proud. I am beyond proud of her and I will be tuned into her career and waiting to see her space mission live on television one day. Her mission is unstoppable and she going to continue to shine throughout the world and space.
Read our interview below and watch her Lottie Dolls segment.
1.)Taylor congrats on attending Black Girls Rock Lead conference . How was it?
Thank you! It was by far to date the best conference I've ever attended. To be around girls who looked like me, who have the same issues as me and to come together to learn from people in the game that not only are rocking it but LEADing and black! There speakers from every arena you could think of. From the Tech world to fashion to entrepreneurs you name it we had it at our finger tips! My favorites were Dr Knatokie Ford, Louis Carr, Michaela Angela Davis, and of course founder, Beverly Bonds. Her staff was just as amazingly fierce and rocked like her! I'm definitely applying again next year! It was like I was finally home. It felt like home. The conference gave me tools to not only to lead, innovate and serve, but to break these glass ceilings down and lift others as I'm doing it. Our blackness is our badge of honor and we wear it proud! I'm Taylor and I'm a black girl who rocks in every way!
2.) Hidden Figures was an amazing and much needed film? What did you gain from the movie ?
Yes, this for me is the best movie ever! To know that there were women black women who helped John Glenn get to the moon- amazing! It made me even more proud to be a young black girl especially since I one day want to go to Mars. I gained a sense of pride watching this film. It only made me more determined to reach my goal and to ensure girls especially black girls know that they can do anything even when the world is against them. Which is why I raised the money to send girls to see this film beside it was important to us girls to know that we can do anything a guy can and maybe even better!
3.)The first African American female astronaut in space Mae Jemison is a phenomenal woman, what does she mean to you?
She's one of my heroes! Seeing her makes me feel like I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it. Having someone like Dr. Jemison who looks like me makes me feel good about myself. She’s not just an African American role model, she’s a role model for all people and girls like me who want to live their dreams of becoming astronauts.
4.)There's so much of space that we don't know about. We know about some planets but not all, if you discovered a planet what would you name it?
Unity because I want people to know that we have to have unity to make this world better than what it is. So if we had a do over and found a new planet it would definitely be called Unity.
5. )What's your favorite thing to do for fun?
If I'm not in school, running, speaking or volunteering I really just like hanging with my close friends, listening to music and hanging out. If I'm home then I like watching YouTube videos on science experiments and music and dance videos! I have an arts side too! So I'm not only a STEM girl but a STEAM girl!
6. )You've motivated other youth to follow their dreams . How does that make you feel?
It makes me proud to know that I motivate other youth to pursue their dreams. I have so many people who help me and keep me grounded so to me paying it forward through service is the only way. If I can inspire to dream big then act big it's worth it! Ad astra girls ad astra!
7.)When you visit space what do you look forward to seeing ?
Well I'm looking forward to space walking and floating in space and collecting items to study and research and mostly viewing the Earth surface! So far I've been looking up to the stars one day my view will be amongst them and when that day comes boy will it be a great one!

"The Autobiography" is the newest album from Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa. This morning Vic Mensa explained to The Breakfast Club that the name for this project came from him pulling no punches ,detailing his story ,being transparent, vulnerable and honest about things he's experienced so he can grow and learn from them. He also hopes that other people will have the courage and see it's okay to come to terms with their past. The 15 track album is strategically put together to be exhilarating , share wisdom, and translucently straight to the point. Vic's ability to mix rock and rap is just gorgeous. "The Autobiography" is a audio story book. His ability to paint pictures that you can see vividly is truly a gift. This project is very thought provoking, expressive, and artistic. Listening to the lyrics on this album opens you up to Vic Mensa's life and you get to hear more about whom he is and things he's gone through. He is vocal on so many issues and the system in his music and he isn't holding back about anything that's on his mind. "The Autobiography" Co-executive produced with Jay-Z and No I.D. is a must hear!
