Putting together year end lists typically leads to New Year guilt, a longing that results from ranking something too high, ranking something too low, or not ranking something at all (total #firstworldproblem, I admit). Point being, I totally slept on Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers tape last year. I too quickly dismissed the Philly rapper as just another foot soldier in Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group lineup, a roster that’s filled up with solid, but not particularly distinguishable, rappers like Pill and French Montana (though French has made a hard charge as of late). What a fool my 2011 self was! “House Party” knocks hard. Meek’s a gifted, savvy rapper with a throwback feel for a street tale. Recently, he leaked the first cut from his upcoming mixtape, “Lean With It,” and it’s pretty tough. Download the Cardiak-produced track after the jump.
Dreamchasers 2 is out soon.
