Happy 2016 to you all, 2015 was a year not to be forgotten, especially within the Hip Hop music community. Meek Mill caught a major “L” in 2015 when he tried to expose Drake for not writing his own raps, fair dues Meek. But when one of Drake’s diss tracks gets a Grammy nomination, you have to re-evaluate what you really are doing. Enter 2016, January 16th to be exact, and Meek was previewing music via his social media feeds, which had fans thinking he was ready to drop the much anticipated Dream Chasers 4 mixtape…..but now, he instead has dropped a 4 track EP titled 4/4. Simple, 4 new tracks to keep the fans happy for now. I’ve listened to the tracks now about 5 times, my favourite track has to be FBH. He tries to clap back at Drake over the “I’m The Plug” instrumental, and in my opinion flops, all he did was expose more personal information to get the internet guessing LOL.

True to creative form, Maybach Music Group artist Meek Mill has released his third volume in his Dream Chasers mixtape series via Datpiff (free download). I was very reserved about this mixtape, due to the massive disappointment of Self Made 3, so I expected more of the same, which isn’t good. To my great surprise and enjoyment Meek Mill has once again delivered a mixtape that should and could succeed as a iTunes purchasable album.
Dj Drama once again is the host for the mixtape, and once again the main club bangers in this mixtape has Dj Drama talking all over the tracks and dropping his samples, so for many club goers you won’t be hearing any professional DJ playing these in the clubs, which I feel is bad promo when they can become hits like House Party from Dream Chasers 1.
The mixtape has features which include Nicki Minaj, O Melly, Travis Scott, Birdman, Puffy, Yo Gotti, French Montana, and of course the MMG Boss and Meek’s mentor Rick Ross is on there as well. The tracks that I feel are the heavy hitters and stand out over the rest are Lil Snupe, Meek’s tribute to his artist who was fatally killed before he made it stardom. On the mixtape you can hear the hunger and natural lyrical talent of Lil Snupe, it’s a shame and lost for the hip hop industry, he could have been a great artist. The other track that has been on replay is Heaven or Hell featuring Jadakiss & Gourdo Banks.
Meek Mill didn’t spare any expense on the producers, which included Boi-1, Super CED, The Mechanics and top producers Scott Scorch. This tells you the levels Meek Mill has pulled together for Dream Chasers 3, and yes it’s worth the Free download from Datpiff, you won’t be disappointed.
Conclusion – Meek Mill has once again delivered a timeless mixtape, and I look forward to his next release.
