Meek Mill is on fire right now. Just last week the Maybach Music rookie dropped the high-powered remix of his “Ima Boss” single, and while another rapper in his position might rush to put an album out in order to capitalize off the momentum, Meek is taking his time.
When Meek Milly’s debut album does drop his MMG boss, Rick Ross, has no doubt that it’ll be quality. As a matter of fact, when Rozay and Meek were featured on “RapFix Live” on Wednesday, the Bawse made the proclamation of all proclamations. “Meek Mill debut gonna be a classic,” Ross boasted as his Philadelphia protégé nodded in agreement.
“You can be expecting something by the summer — if not the summer, before the summer,” Meek told “RFL” of his yet-untitled LP. “You can expect real hip-hop from me: spit, versatility. Like Ross said, it ain’t about quantity, it’s about quality. I like to take my time, put out good records, pick good beats, pick good features.”
So far so good. Meek is building a reputation for making hard street bangers thanks to tracks like “Tupac Back” and “Ima Boss,” his two singles from this year’s MMG compilation Self Made Vol.1. And Meek’s latest Dreamchasers mixtape yielded yet another street favorite in the Young Chris-assisted “House Party.” But rather than focus on the right now, the fiery MC understands that you only get one chance to make your first album, so he’s in no rush.
“That’s what the focus is: making sure it’s classic. And I’m really excited and proud that the homey is taking his time to go to that next level,” Ross said. “Of course he’s the hardest new artist in the game — we know that, hands down. Of course he can capitalize right now and we know that, that’s the obvious. But what’s not, is his debut album will be a classic.”
