Due to Meek Mill’s sentence to three to six months behind bars, some questions surround his upcoming sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money — namely, will it still be released on September 9, as scheduled? Thanks to a new snippet released on Wednesday (July 23), we hope that answer is yes.
The clip, directed by willKNOWS, features Meek in the studio — surrounded by a few people, including Senior VP of A&R Atlantic Records Dallas Martin — rapping along as a new track plays back. Like the Philly native’s 2011 hit “Tupac Back,” this new song, which according to the video is called “Ambition,” channels the late rapper. Over an interpolation of the piano from the ‘Pac favorite “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” Meek raps about his come up.
This is not to be confused with Wale’s 2011 song “Ambition,” which featured an excellent verse from Meek, as well as Rick Ross.
And Rozay says that, despite the legal troubles, the disc is on the way.
“His album is coming,” Ross told MTV News last week, addressing the issues that come with his artist currently being behind bars. “We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money,’ and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”
