MEEK

One of the biggest rap upsets of the year was Meek Mill’s untimely incarceration about a month before the slated release of his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Within the blink of an eye, Meek was taken into custody after a routine probation hearing. The Philly native was sent back to jail back in July — and is still locked up (Missinfo.tv confirms). While we have been hoping for his release, we didn’t want to just jump on the speculation bandwagon off of a few promising tweets. So, we reached out and got the official confirmation that Meek is still incarcerated from a source at MMG.

However, tonight, Meek’s camp released a brand new collaboration with Lil’ Boosie (who now goes by Boosie Badazz officially) titled “Fuck You Mean.” The rowdy track is an early reminder of why rap needs Meek back on the streets ASAP.
