Meek Mill is gearing up for possibly the project of his life. He has confirmed the release of his fourth studio LP.
In an interview with Vogue Magazine the Philadelphia MC verifies that he will be dropping a new album before the close of 2018. As per HipHopDXthe forthcoming but yet to be titled effort will be released November 30. He touches on the elephant in the room regarding the anticipation. “I’ve been writing myself since I was probably, what, 8 years old. I’ve been doing this a long time, so [there’s] always pressure to be better.”
The “1942 Flows” rapper also discussed his case and vows to change the probation system and the severe restrictions that are often applied to minority offenders. “Probation is like, they say, to help rehabilitate you and help you better yourself coming out of prison,” he explained. “In my mind, I never felt like I was f***ed up.” Meek says probation is “trap door that’s gonna keep you in and out of the system. You don’t even have to commit a crime to go back to prison.”
He also expressed his concern regarding the poor conditions in prisons which a lot of the time cause inmates to receive incremental time. “I had to f***ing almost turn into a savage myself to even stay alive.”
At this time there are no further details on the album. In the meantime you can purchase merchandising bundles on his website. You can read the entire Vogue feature here.
Born Robert Rihmeek Williams, he was 19 when he first “caught his case,” when he was arrested in his hometown of Philadelphia in 2007. He uses the word caught because, despite serving his time, and for some crimes he has always denied committing, those charges have plagued him for the past decade. Even while recording his much-anticipated new album, which he will release on November 30, he felt the stress of being on probation: “It’s a dark shadow over the top of your head on a daily basis.” (Vogue)
Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is feeling like he’s the best. The hip-hop veteran has shared some motivational words from Miami hitmaker DJ Khaled.
Meek Milly hit up Instagram Tuesday (November 13) to salute Khaled on talking about overcoming his doubters.
“What I’m trying to tell you is, I ain’t give up and at one time that’s what they were trying to make me do. They wanted me to give up and they were trying to finish me. It didn’t work. I’m here with you now talking about a real story. A real storm. And we weathered it. That’s what I’m here to tell you. Like, when I made this album Grateful, I’m thanking my fans and my son and God and my relationships.”
Young Thug (born: Jeffery Lamar Williams) has had his bond revoked and has been booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail on felony drug and gun charges, the Blast reports and Pitchfork can confirm. According to court records viewed by Pitchfork, Williams failed a drug test prior to a scheduled arraignment this morning (November 8). The arraignment was tied to a September 2017 arrest, during which the rapper was cited for possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, and hydrocodone with intent to distribute. He was also found with codeine (two counts), a firearm, alprazolam (aka Xanax), and an amphetamine. (Pitchfork)

Over the past year, Thug has found himself getting involved in law enforcement run-ins.
The rapper was out on bond for felony drug and gun charges stemming from an arrest in September 2017. Thug turned himself in on Sept. 11 and was released on Sept. 13 on bond. His bond has now been revoked. Last year, the rapper was arrested and hit with eight felony charges for possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, codeine, hydrocodone, xanax, an amphetamine, and a firearm. (Complex)
Sources tell TMZ Cardi recently stepped into the studio with none other than Meek Mill to lay down some material that’ll be used in a forthcoming song. We’re told they cranked out hooks and verses — all of which is fair game for a final product that’s yet to be released. While we’re told the collab happened a few months ago, the timing is nothing short of less-than-perfect for Nicki … who’s in the middle of a good ol’ fashioned beef with Cardi. (TMZ)
Fans of Meek Mill have been waiting on his first album release since regaining his freedom. What fans do know is that Meek has been in the studio, released an EP and even hopped on a feature or two. But now, the Dreamchaser himself revealed that his new album will be coming sometime in November.
While on stage at Georgetown University for a speaking engagement with a professor, Meek revealed that his new album will be coming in November. Specifically, “Album coming out this month.”
There are currently no details on what the album will have in store but one has to wonder will a Meek and Drake reunion track make the cut.
