It’s no secret that 2018 was a rollercoaster for Meek Mill; however, the Philadelphia rapper is looking to end the year on a high note.
On Thursday night, Meek dropped off his much anticipated CHAMPIONSHIPS album, his first full-length release since he got out of prison back in spring. Initially tight-lipped about the effort, he has continued to reveal more and more details within the past couple of weeks. We knew CHAMPIONSHIPS would address criminal justice reform and would be stacked with big-name features.
Hours before the project arrived, Meek lifted the curtain on the CHAMPIONSHIPS tracklist, confirming the 19 song titles as well as appearances by everyone from Cardi B and Kodak Black to JAY-Z and Young Thug to 21 Savage and his former foe Drake.
“This album is gonna hit all my fans, whether you’re a day one Meek Mill fan or you just learned about my music through my legal situation,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “You’ll have street records, you’ll have party records, you’ll have songs for the ladies, and then you’ll have more personal records that touch on everything I’ve been through the past year.”
You can listen to CHAMPIONSHIPS now on Tidal, Spotify, and Apple Music.
Meek is now preparing to hit the road for his Motivation U.S. tour. The trek will begin Feb. 19 in Miami and conclude March 24 in Atlanta. Check out the full dates below.
