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 »

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

Just a week after Rozay dropped the Usher-featuring first single from the forthcoming God Forgives, I Don’t, he’s back with the second single, “So Sophisticated.” It features recent Mixtape Of The Week recipient Meek Mill, and it’s a strong, bravado-heavy street clap right in both rappers’ wheelhouse. Stream it below. More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Meek Mill Dreamchasers 2

For at least an hour after Meek Mill released his Dreamchasers 2 tape on Monday, the mixtape download site DatPiff was overloaded with traffic and basically couldn’t function at all. In rap’s current mixtape-based climate, crashing DatPiff is the rough equivalent of what going platinum in a week used to be. I can only remember… More »

Download Meek Mill Dreamchasers 2 Mixtape

As Philly rapper Meek Mill turns 25, he’s also dropping the sequel to last year’s righteously-solid Dreamchasers, a new tape from which we’ve already heard “Lean With It,” “Eryday” and “Flexin On Em.” It’s out today, and at the moment, Datpiff is over capacity because of it — that has to feel cool, since I… More »

Rick Ross – “Bag Of Money” Video

Rick Ross’s “Bag Of Money” is the first single from Self Made, Vol. 2, his forthcoming Maybach Music compilation, and it’s all about how Ross’s girl looks like a bag of money, which does not actually sound like a good thing for a woman to look like. Ross’s Maybach Music soldiers Wale and Meek Mill… More »

Meek Mill – “Flexin On Em”

Meek Mill will put out a new mixtape next month, and we’ve already got a glimpse of the Rick Ross-featuring “Erday” and the sinewy “Lean With It.” Now, he’s got another one from Dreamchasers 2 available for download. It knocks, as expected. Nab it below. More »

Drake Announces North American Tour

Last year, Drake gave the internet-rap insurgents of the world a vote of confidence when he took Kendrick Lamar and ASAP Rocky along as opening acts on his Club Paradise tour. That was cool. But the thing he’s doing this summer could be even cooler. This time around, he’s touring the arenas of the U.S. More »

Meek Mill – “Erday (Feat. Rick Ross)”

Meek Mill’s follow-up to last years underrated Dream Chasers drops soon, and previously we heard the Cardiak-produced “Lean With It,” a sinewy rap track consistent with the street-savvy strengths of Dream Chasers. Another track from the impending released is now on the web, the Rick Ross-assisted “Erday,” and, probably thanks to another Cardiak beat, it’… More »

Meek Mill – “Lean With It”

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… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This time of year, things in the musicverse tend to slow way down, and not too many people unveil their music videos. But in the past week, a few of them did anyway. Here are five of those:… More »

Meek Mill – “House Party” Video (Feat. Young Chris)

With its evilly wormy synth-line and its rapid-fire staccato baller talk, Meek Mill’s “House Party” is the best thing the squeaky-voiced Philly rapper has done since he signed on with Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group. The song’s brand-new video is a murky, low-budget affair, but Meek and guest State Property veteran Young Chris get bonu… More »
