This song was too good to just let it sit there so Rick Ross grabbed some of his MMG partners and made a remix. Here’s him, Meek, Wale and Future with a G-Mix of “No Games”.
Meek Mill had one hell of a performance at the BET Awards tonight. The way it was all set up with him walking his boys then turning up on stage was a pretty good look. Here’s his performance of “Intro” and “Levels”.
It’s about to be Rick Ross season very soon as he prepares to release his next album “Mastermind”. With an album title like that you better have a genius marketing plan. Can’t wait to see him pull out all the stops. The album drops December 17th. Here’s one of many video trailers for it.
Let me start off by saying that from a marketing standpoint, Meek Mill and MMG did their damn thing with this project. It might be the fact that Meek is also signed to Roc Nation management that helps the cause. Not saying it’s all paid for and no talent, cause Meek went off on this mixtape. After losing his artist and friend Lil’ Snupe, you can tell Meek really put some passion behind “Dreamchasers 3″. We were teased with Instagrams and recording session videos for about two months. There were probably 20 different artwork files floating out there for the cover. The hype about this mixtape was real, now it was time to see if it all matched the music. Here are my thoughts.
Meek starts off in a very dominant and powerful way by bringing a bunch of huge names together all one track. “Leanin” brings Birdman, Travi$ Scott, and Diddy to the table with an “Ain’t worried bout Nothin” attitude. Diddy and Birdman are two of the biggest moguls in the game along with Jay Z, so having them on there means you’re coming with your best, and you’re coming with the best. Dope song to ride to.
Then we have “Make Me”. This song is clean because Meek talks about having lots of money and nice things, but still claiming that those things haven’t changed him. Telling everyone in the game that no matter what you do to him or say about him, he will not be broken. Yet another statement track from Meek with hard impact. The singing of “Make Me” isn’t the best part since we’re not used to Meek being any type of singer, but other than that this song goes hard.
“Dope Dealer” is probably my favorite song on the entire mixtape. Not because of the meaning of the song or anything, but the Key Wayne beat is probably one of the sickest and hardest instrumentals I’ve heard in a long time. Having Rick Ross on the song is a great move too. Ever since his feature on “I’m a Boss”, Meek and Ross make quite the due on any track. Nicki Minaj goes in on this song too. Almost reminds me of when she spazzed on that “Monster” song a while back. Definitely top 3 song on the entire project.
Alright now “Lil Nigga Snupe” is where Meek let’s it all out and absolutely spazzes. You can almost sense that when there’s deep meaning in a song he can really go off. Probably the fastest and most technical I’ve ever heard Meek Mill go. He’s got a lot of stunt anthems and club bangers, but this one puts him up there lyrically with a crazy cadence and delivery. It’s a shame Lil’ Snupe had to go so soon, the “Lil Snupe Skit” on this mixtape is a must-listen also. Really showcases how good the up-n-coming spitter was.
“Aint me” might as well be “Levels Part 2″. It’s pretty much saying that no matter how hard you’re ballin, you’ll neve be Yo Gotti, Meek Mill, or his Dreamchasers artist OMelly. The “Aint Me” part of the song gets pretty infectious after a while but the beat on this one is incredible. Then “I Be on That” comes on and turns up the project to another level (since there’s levels to this shit). Nicki Minaj is back and this time she brings French Montana and Fabolous to turn up for another club banger. French is good with the hooks these days, there’s no denying that. Putting all of New York on there was a great play. Nicki, Fab, and French represent very well.
There are a bunch of other tracks before this next one but I’m really not trying to describe every single song. You have to get your own feel for this stuff sometimes so going off tiny descriptions of EVERY SONG might be too much info to process. “Rich Porter” with Rick Ross is definitely the next power track on this project. Once again this one delivers an “I’m a Boss” feeling which we all love from Rozay and Meek. The boss and his right hand definitely know how to wake up the streets.
Those are most of the standout tracks from “Dreamchasers 3″. The other songs are definitely dope, but don’t carry the same authority as the ones listed above. I believe that Meek clearly proved himself on this project and it might take some growing on people and listening to every song to really understand that. Sometimes mixtape campaigns get a little out of hand but Meek and the entire MMG camp did a great job of promoting both this and Self Made 3 in a classy fashion. You don’t feel like they’re flooding the market with info and images, but you anticipate the next teaser. Whoever does the videos for Meek is a genius also. Those vlogs create a lot of anticipation. Overall I would say the first “Dreamchasers” mixtape is still the best because it was Meek’s major introduction into this game, but the 3rd is still a solid project. I’ve been playing it front to back for the past 5 days and still can’t get enough. It’s also already certified double platinum on DatPiff which is a pretty damn good number to have on there. Make sure to download “Dreamchasers 3″ here if you haven’t yet.
I’ve got to admit. Meek Mill did one of the best jobs I’ve ever seen when it comes to promoting a mixtape. Just look at his Instagram and Twitter leading up to the release. According tot he listening session this is definitely his best work. Lots of emotion going into this one especially after the loss of his boy Lil’ Snupe. Download the entire project below.
Meek Mill is getting ready to drop his next Dreamchasers mixtape. So as any other rapper would do, he drops off another track to tease us a bit. Here’s his new song “Make Me”. Let us know what you think!
Rick Ross is really going after these TMZ cameramen. Last week he called one of them out at the airport and this time got the same unexpected cameraman to help promote his upcoming projects. This is actually one very hilarious way of promoting your album. He’s taking it to the streets and making sure he’s heard at all times. Check out the new footage below…
Rick Ross is one funny man. So funny that he’s taking Harvey’s (or Hervis’) TMZ employees and making them speak into his camera. Check out the clip below…
As MMG (Rick Ross, Wale, Stalley, Maybach-O, Meek Mill, and Rockie Fresh) get ready to drop their next Self Made project, it’s time to do some promo. So they ran through New York and stopped by both the hottest stations Hot 97 and The Breakfast Club. Watch both interviews below.
The Breakfast Club:
We didn’t expect Rick Ross to drop a track this hot tonight. Just a random Thursday drop. This is how you set the internet on fire with a new single. “No Games” featuring Future is going to be a huge song, just watch. The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League production is incredible too.
