The Weeknd – “Pullin Up” (Solo Version)

Earlier today, Meek Mill released his new almost-surprise album Dreams Worth More Than Money. There are some big-name guests on the album, and one of those guests is the Weeknd, who sings the hook on the slithery “Pullin’ Up.” And now, on the same day that the album has come out, the Weeknd has shared… More »

Meek Mill – “All Eyes On You” (Feat. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown)

Meek Mill’s new Dreams Worth More Than Money doesn’t quite count as a surprise-release album; Meek gave us the briefest window of warning that it’ll be out on Monday. But until now, the only track we’ve heard from the album is the ferocious “Check.” Today, new track “All Eyes On You” bubbled up onto the… More »

Meek Mill’s Dreams Worth More Than Money Is Out Next Week; Features Drake, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd

Dreams Worth More Than Money, the second proper album from Philadelphia rap destroyer Meek Mill, was supposed to come out last year. But Meek had to go to prison for a few months on a probation violation, and that messed up the album’s release plans. That may have been a blessing in disguise. Meek’s profile… More »

Nicki Minaj Responds To Ex-Boyfriend’s Vindictive Song Snippet

Nicki Minaj and her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels split up in 2014 after 12 years together, and most of her new album The Pinkprint addresses what the end of that relationship was like for Nicki. But Samuels has been busy since the breakup too, releasing an attempt at a mixtape a few months ago. Last night,… More »

Davido x Meek Mill – “Fans Mi” Video

On the infectious “Fans Mi,” Meek Mill joins Nigerian hookmaster Davido for a vibrant, tongue-in-cheek video about tricking a mob boss. The video is a riot because it starts off incorporating every single rap video trope you can think of — half-naked, beautiful women posing in all sorts of unlikely and highly-sexualized postures, what look… More »

Status Ain’t Hood: Is Anyone Rapping Better Than Kevin Gates Right Now?

Kevin Gates will probably never become a big star. He’s too rough and raw, too wild and passionate. His presence is forceful and chaotic, and it’s hard to imagine corporate interests ever aligning behind them. Gates can sing and knows how to put together genuinely catchy songs, but he’s just as likely to rap furiously… More »

Meek Mill – “Check”

Philadelphia mic-ripper Meek Mill is the sort of rapper with enough internal energy to just yell one word over and over and make it sound like a completely powerful hook. That’s what he does on “Check,” which follows “B Boy” and “Monster” as the latest street single that might appear on Meek’s forthcoming album DreamsMore »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was a week crammed full of great videos, way too many to fit onto this list. But my favorite subplot was this: Taylor Swift drummed up weeks of hype and probably spent a fortune to make her kung-fu feminist G.I. Joe cameo party and to unveil it in the biggest way possible for a… More »

Meek Mill – “Monster” Video

Meek Mill’s new single “Monster” was already a total banger, but it just got even better. Director Spike Jordan’s new “Monster” video goes all the way period-piece, with Meek and his friends staging an ’80s-style “Welcome Home Meek Mill” party at a roller rink. The time-specific fashion is absolutely on point, and you can just… More »

Meek Mill – “Miss My Dawgs” (Feat. Travi$ Scott & Strap)

Early Sunday morning, the New York rapper Chinx was murdered in Queens. We’re going to see a whole lot of tribute songs to Chinx, and the first one I’ve heard is “Miss My Dawgs,” a new one from the Philadelphia rap king Meek Mill. The track, which features sung vocals from Travi$ Scott and Strap,… More »

Meek Mill – “Energy (Freestyle)”

If Meek Mill has enemies trying to rob him of this energy, is that really a problem? Isn’t Meek Mill’s energy an endlessly renewable resource? Isn’t it solar power? The Philly rap animal is in no danger of running out of energy anytime soon, but it’s still great to hear him jump on his “Amen“… More »

Janet Jackson Might Be Releasing A New Album This Summer

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 »

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.
