Last month, Philly rap energy-bomb released his very good album Dreams & Nightmares. Before the album dropped, Meek had mentioned that Jay-Z had contributed a verse. But Jay, possibly unhappy with his own work, ended up not appearing on the album, though he did record a verse — and a pretty good one! — for Meek’s opulent Rick Ross/Trey Songz collab “Lay Up.” Instead of Jay, Wale appeared on the final album, which is not exactly an upgrade. But the Jay version is making the internet rounds today, and you can hear it below.
Dreams & Nightmares is out now on MMG.
