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 »

Watch BET Hip-Hop Awards 2013 Highlights: Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill

Every year, during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, the show airs little black-and-white vignettes of people rapping in warehouses — sometimes in crews, sometimes in random-as-fuck thrown-together groupings. In certain circles, these videos, the fabled BET Cyphers, are all anyone talks about the day after the show; the Ace Hood/Juelz Santana/Fabolous/Jadakiss one from 2008 is still… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Meek Mill Dreamchasers 3

There’s a really great twitter, @MeekMillRapLike, that meme-ishly collects all-caps comparisons for Philadelphia rap star Meek Mill’s delivery: “MEEK MILL RAP LIKE HE STEPPED ON A LEGO PIECE,” “MEEK MILL RAP LIKE HE TRAPPED IN A ELEVATOR,” “MEEK MILL RAP LIKE HE ORDERING FOOD FROM THE PASSENGER SEAT.” There’s a reason this Twitter exists: Nobody,… More »

Download Meek Mill Dreamchasers 3 Mixtape

The last two Dreamchasers tapes from the Philly rap lunatic and rising Maybach Music star Meek Mill were among the most impactful rap albums of the last few years, and they produced some absolutely monster hits, even if Meek was giving both of them away for free. Dreamchasers 2 was a Mixtape Of The Week,… More »

DJ Khaled – “I Did It For My Dawgs” (Feat. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood & Jadakiss) Video

DJ Khaled might not have too many talents in this world, but he’s better than just about anyone else at lining up hard-as-fuck rappers for overblown, triumphal posse cuts like this one. Songs like this have gotten a bit more exciting since Meek Mill’s rise to fame, and videos like this have gotten a bit… More »

Meek Mill – “Lay Up Remix” (Feat. Rick Ross, Jay-Z & Trey Songz)

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… More »

Meek Mill – “Intro”

It seems kind of crazy that Meek Mill is putting out his debut LP next week — given that, you know, he’s already had his share of ubiquitous hits — but I guess that’s just how it’s going these days (Kendrick Lamar, a critical favorite for some time now, also put out his formal debut… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I spent a pretty good chunk of the week in transit to or from New York, or doing New York things while I was in New York, so I didn’t see a lot of this weeks’ videos before the massive video-watching binge I went on this morning. And I have to say: Lots of good… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

If you need a quick crash-course in why music videos are not what they once were, have a look at Alex Pappademas’s celebration of the great Hype Williams in Grantland. Plenty of great music video directors are working today, but none of them are bringing the sheer opulent visual verve that Hype had at hi… More »

Meek Mill – “Amen” Video (Feat. Drake & Jeremih)

In what has to be a nod to Ghostface Killah’s “Cherchez La Ghost” video, Meek Mill starts his video for “Amen,” the summertime-anthem standout from his Dreamchasers 2 mixtape, waking up after what appears to be a very fun party. Most of the video, though, consists of celebratory footage from Drake’s Club Paradise tour, with… More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) Video

Here’s the clip for Maybach Music Group’s nine-minute posse cut “Power Circle,” and it’s basically a chronicle of day-to-day MMG living. So, a lot of Miami Heat games, a lot of lounging in Ferraris and drop-ins from Usher, Drake, DJ Khaled and more. Watch below. More »

Rick Ross – “So Sophisticated” (Feat. Meek Mill) Video

Here’s Rozay’s clip for “So Sophisticated,” a visual that remains true to the Teflon’s Don’s favored aesthetic (think randomly occurring fires, Bugattis and opulent feasts). It also doubles as a Ciroc commercial, or if it doesn’t, it easily could. I think I just saved somebody’s marketing budget. Watch it below. More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

Next month, Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group will release their Self Made 2 compilation, and the album track “Power Circle” features all the rappers currently active in the crew — Ross, Gunplay, Meek Mill, Wale, Stalley — as well as on-fire freelance assassin Kendrick Lamar. It is nine minutes long, and it is epic. Liste… More »

Drake And Chris Brown Brawl In New York Nightclub

This is probably going to end up as one of those pop-music legends where nobody ever knows the entire truth, but apparently, Drake and Chris Brown both ended up at the New York nightclub W.I.P. last night, and things got out of hand. Drake has recently been linked with Rihanna, and Chris Brown, of course,… More »
