ThatRaw.com Presents “Raw Artist of the Month”: Meek Mill
This month’s “Raw Artist of the Month” is none other than MMG’s Meek Mill. Born as Robert Williams on May 6, 1987, Meek Mill is one of the most promising artist’s the game has seen in a while. The North Philadelphia rapper has a relentless hunger reminiscent of 50 Cent when he first exploded on the scene (no homo) almost 10 years ago. Combine that with a fierce lyrical ability and a grimy street bravado we haven’t seen in years, and he is definitely on track to leave a mark in the industry.
The weird thing is…his style really doesn’t fit with what most Hip-Hop consumers have been gravitating to for the past few years. It’s the complete opposite of this bubble gum fuck shit that has been polluting the airwaves for so long. I don’t know how it’s working, but thank GOD. It definitely gives me hope. If he represents the future of Hip-Hop, than I am completely fine with that.
Meek was briefly signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records until he signed to Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group. T.I. done fucked up. He is probably shaking his head right now; but truthfully, MMG is such a better fit for Meek.
In March 2011, Mill was inducted into the “XXL Freshman Class of 2011”. That same year, he released the street hit “Tupac’s Back” and “I’ma Boss”, both along with Rick Ross. In early 2012, he was chosen as #7 on “MTV’s Hottest MC’s in the Game”. Should have been top 3, if not number 1, but what the fuck does MTV know. They ain’t had shit to do with music in 300 years.
Mill just recently released the 2nd installment to his Gangsta Grillz “Dreamchasers” series: “Dreamchasers 2”. It’s hosted by DJ Drama and has features from: Drake, Fabolous, Wale, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Mac Miller, French Montana, 2 Chainz, and more. Now, the first one was bananas. It’s what I had playing in my headphones when I was at the gym bench pressing 3,000 pounds.
And “Dreamchasers 2” doesn’t disappoint either, it’s stupid retarded. It got me wanting to smack mufuckas across the earth with telephone poles. Run it all the way through and you’ll be a believer; if not, you’re a feeb son. You should be german-suplexed into the spike pit on Mortal Kombat 1 if you don’t feel this. I power-bomb small children and baby koalas to this shit.
Meek Mill is the truth son. Make sure to download “Dreamchasers 2” right now and support this kid.
