Band to Watch: Meek Mill

Philly MC combines Waka-esque volume with slick street stories

By |

Hometown: Philly
 

Backstory: While making his name with his Dreamchasers series of mixtapes (one of which hit 1.5 million downloads within six hours of release), the MC born Robert Williams signed with both Rick Ross' Maybach Music label and Jay-Z's management team.

Notes from Hova: Jay-Z wasn't all smiles when Meek Mill previewed Dreams and Nightmares for him; he even suggested Meek nix one of the tracks.

Hot Clip: Watch the video for "Young & Gettin' It" feat. Kirko Bangz above
