Meek Mill Releases His Album ‘Championships’
Finally answering our calls of anticipation, Meek Mill released his latest album ‘Championships‘. With everything surrounding Meek since his release, he has been busy. From headlines to ‘Jefe‘ with T.I, but finally we got a full project from meek. When I say full project, I mean a FULL PROJECT! This album holds 19 tracks with a vast variety of sounds, but they all have one thing in common and that is how flame they are. Meek hosts 15 guests on this album in Anuel Aa, Fabolous, Cardi B, Jay Z, Rick Ross, Future, Roddy Ricch, Young Thug, Drake, Kodak Black, Ella Mai, 21 Savage, Melii, Jeremih & PnB Rock. Each artist offers something unique to this album, many of them are top selling artists with an impeccable resume.
Combining these individual tracks with the tracks holding top notch features, Meek created one of the best albums from beginning to end. The ‘Intro‘ kicks off this project, where you hear the classic song ‘In The Air Tonight‘ and a special flow of lyrical word play from Meek. Keeping the album exciting, Meek lined up the tracks very well by putting tracks like ‘Uptown Vibes‘ & ‘On Me‘ at the beginning followed by ‘Whats Free‘. Balancing out good mood melodies and vibes then quickly following them by a serious and lyrical track, really does keep you on your toes. Towards the middle of the album, we got to see Meek & Drizzy flow together on ‘Going Bad‘. Those two offered a hit track worthy of repeating over and over again. Surrounded by tracks like ‘Oodles O’ Noodles Babies‘ and ‘Championships‘, we get to see Meek get lyrical and talk about real issues. He touches subjects of his childhood, loss of friends, corrupt cycles and other hardships of life, it is very easy to emotionally invest and relate to this project. One of the most impressive things about this album is the variety of beats that these songs provide, offering a sound for any listener no matter what genre they indulge into. Ending this album with ‘Cold Hearted II‘, Meek reminds us of what made him established as an artist.
This project was an absolute roller coaster of incredible songs, really reflecting on the state of Hip-Hop. 2018 put everybody in their place letting us all know the genre is safe. That being said it was clear to me what tracks are in my Top 5.
Buddha’s Top 5:
- Uptown Vibes
- Cold Hearted II
- What’s Free
- Going Bad
I’m glad I heard from Jay on Loso on this album, Enjoy!
