A new track from Joyner Lucas and Meek Mill surfaced online today unexpectedly. On the track, which is titled “Run It,” the two rappers split verses over a beat that was reportedly produced by Timbaland, who also provides the song with some ad libs. Take a listen to the new song below.
Since putting out his viral video for “I’m Not Racist” last month, Lucas has been spotted making music with producers like Timbaland and Scott Storch, and working with artists including Chris Brown, who he apparently has an upcoming music video with.
Meanwhile, Meek has frequently been in the news since the rapper was sentenced to prison in November for violating parole. Following the sentencing, his hometown of Philadelphia rallied around him. As the Eagles made their way to the 2018 Superbowl, the team picked up Meek’s 2012 song “Dreams & Nightmares (Intro)” as their anthem. “It really lifted my spirit to hear the team rally around my songs because that's why I make music—to inspire others and bring people together,” the rapper said.
Meek is challenging his sentence and appealing to the Philadelphia Supreme Court to have the case overturned.
