The Week In Rap: The Great Drake/Kendrick Lamar Rivalry

This year, the best story in rap -- and the best story in music, and maybe the best story in popular culture in general -- is the three-way dance that Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West have been dancing. They've all been throwing huge shadows over rap for years, and they're all entangled with one… More »

O.T. Genasis – “CoCo (Remix)” (Feat. Meek Mill & Jeezy)

The Long Beach, California rapper O.T. Genasis' churning, brash-as-fuck drug-rap anthem "CoCo" is one of the defining rap bangers of the last few months, despite the fact that it has barely any rapping on it. Instead, it has yelling, the sort of delivery a monster track like this requires. And on the new remix, Genasi… More »

Watch Kanye West Perform, Denounce Nike At Big Sean’s Yahoo! Live Concert

Last night, Big Sean brought out a ton of guests for his headlining show at Los Angeles' House Of Blues, which was streamed on Yahoo!. Travi$ Scott, Meek Mill, and J. Cole all got to perform a few tracks of their own, serving as a precursor to Kanye West's appearance. Big Sean and Kanye did… More »

Meek Mill – “B Boy” (Feat. Big Sean & A$AP Ferg) Video

After coming home from his prison term, Meek Mill went fully back into active mode with a couple of furious freestyles a couple of weeks ago. The probation-violation bid he did last year messed up the plans for his Dreams Worth More Than Money, but it looks like those album plans are back on. Meek'… More »

Meek Mill – “Ice Cream Freestyle” & “The Get Back Freestyle”

Philly rap star Meek Mill had a rough 2014. Over the summer, he was sent to prison on a parole violation, which meant his album Dreams Worth More Than Money got pushed off the release schedule. (It also meant, of course, that he had to spend a long-ass time in prison.) Lately, though, things have… More »

The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

Nicki Minaj – “Big Daddy” (Feat. Meek Mill)

Nicki Minaj's third studio album The Pinkprint will be released next Monday. We just got an official tracklisting last week, and it featured two tracks with Meek Mill. One of those, "Big Daddy," was just played on Power 99FM, a radio station in Mill's hometown of Philadelphia. Mill starts off the aggressive track before Nicki… More »

Meek Mill Is Out Of Prison

Five months ago, the great Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill went to prison on a parole violation, causing the delay of his Dreams Worth More Than Money album release and generally making the rap universe a less exciting place. Rap Radar reports that Meek was released today, a little more than a month early from hi… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week was brutal here in NYC as the city got hit with widespread panic and potentially unstoppable plague. Yes, dear readers, CMJ is back! We also had our hands full with plenty of great songs, including a few that didn't make our 5 Best. There are two songs in particular that deserve a mention,… More »

Meek Mill – “Fuck U Mean” (Feat. Lil Boosie)

BANGER ALERT. Philly rap demon Meek Mill is in prison right now on a probation violation, but his people have now put a monster of a new song called "Fuck U Mean" out into the world. The track unites Meek with Baton Rouge rap hero Lil Boosie, and the combination couldn't possibly make more sense. More »

Meek Mill Sentenced To 3-6 Months In Jail

Meek Mill has been sentenced to three to six months in jail after violating his probation. He had previously been convicted of drug and gun charges in 2008 and spent a few months in prison before being released under a five-year parole agreement. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the rapper had a "litany of alleged… More »

DJ Khaled – “They Don’t Love You No More” (Feat. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana)

DJ Khaled has been an A-list rap fixture for the better part of a decade, even though he doesn't really do anything except yell. I have no idea how he keeps lining up big stars for his songs, but he keeps doing it, and now he's done it again. "They Don't Love You No More"… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This column is a weird one because the quality of music videos tends to vacillate wildly from week to week. Some weeks, there are just no motherfucking good ones, so I have to go hunting through K-pop blogs to find something to fill out the list, or where I consider throwing a late-night performance into… More »

YG – “My Nigga (Remix)” (Feat. Lil Wayne, Rich Homie Quan, Meek Mill & Nicki Minaj) Video

There's a classic format for an all-star rap remix video, one that probably comes from the classic Hype Williams clip for the "Flava In Ya Ear" remix: All the rappers, collected in one place, filmed in black-and-white against a stark background, projecting as much personality as humanly possible. Somehow, it works every time. Case i… More »

Meek Mill – “Heaven Or Hell” (Feat. Jadakiss & Guordan Banks) Video

On "Heaven Or Hell," a track from his great Dreamchasers 3 mixtape, the Philly rap animal Meek Mill flipped the Luniz classic "I Got 5 On It" into a gritty street-life lament. This was a smart thing to do. He also recruited craggy O.G. Jadakiss and R&B singer Guordan Banks for help, and that decisio… More »

YG – “My Nigga (Remix)” (Feat. Lil Wayne, Rich Homie Quan, Meek Mill & Nicki Minaj)

YG's DJ Mustard-produced slap "My Nigga" is one of the most satisfying California rap anthems to come along in recent months, and it's also a near-perfect example of Mustard's spacey, squelching production style. Other than YG, the original track had no West Coast rappers; it had Jeezy on a verse and Rich Homie Quan o… More »

Young Thug – “Hundreds (I Had A Dream)” (Feat. Meek Mill)

The Atlanta Brick Squad affiliate Young Thug and the Philadelphia MMG lieutenant Meek Mill boast two of the most frenetically spazzy voices in rap, untamed rasps that often seem to indicate an MC filling with helium until he threatens to burst. And now they've teamed up on a typically triumphant and skewed beat by prodigiou… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2013

Last year, there was one album -- Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City -- that united virtually the entire rap-listening public in adoration. This year, no such luck. Many heard my #1 pick of the year (and you can probably already guess what it is) as the work of a sonic visionary, and plenty more… More »

Meek Mill – “I’m Leanin'” (Feat. Travi$ Scott, Diddy & Birdman) Video

Certain comments-section mainstays may disagree, but I maintain that Dreamchasers 3, the latest burst of frantic rap intensity from Meek Mill, is one of the year's finest mixtapes. The tape opens with "I'm Leanin'," on which Meek and recent-vintage Kanye West protege Travi$ Scott go in hard over a furious Cardo beat and both Diddy… More »
