As far as brash, listenable mainstream rappers go, Meek Mill’s really grown on me in recent months. What helps is that there’s genuine talent there and you know that when he’s done with the ‘street anthem’ lane, he’ll still have a great career in the game.
Having heard 4 or 5 tracks from this tape prior to its release, I can honestly say I’m looking forward to giving this a full playthrough. Alongside head-nodding street anthems such as Burn, there are more solemn, lyric-centric efforts such as the fantastic Ready or Not, sampling The Fugees song of the same name, and I’m sure there’s plenty more diversity to enjoy across the rest of the tape. Features include Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Fabolous, Rick Ross and more, and with his debut album is set for release this summer, Meek will be hoping the assists from that group will further help to set him in good stead for that release.
