7. Meek Mill, Dreamchasers 2
Label: Maybach Music Group/Warner Bros./Roc Nation
Released: May 7th
With a few successful singles released last year and Self Made Vol. 2 (streaming now) at the helm, Meek Mill refused to rest on his mounting success as an MMG soldier when he released Dreamchasers 2 back in May. Mill sounded as intense and ferocious as ever on the mixtape, and he gave listeners a reason to feel the same way. Dreamchasers 2was nothing but hits and club bangers from start to finish.
It's Mill's show throughout the entirety of the 20-track set, but the numerous features don't hurt. Big Sean cooly delivers a sharp verse in "Burn" against Mill's aggressive hook. The classic "I smell pussy" line from House Party sounds that much better coming from Fabolous on the "House Party (Remix)." And let's not forget the victorious "Amen" f/ Drake and Jeremih. Bottom line: Dreamchasers 2 is tough. Tough enough to get us even hungrier for his debut album, Dreams & Nightmares. But unfortunately, fans are going to have to wait until August 28 to get their hands on it. Now let that shit burn.
