Meek Mill's debut album Dreams and Nightmares was originally set for release on August 28, but the MMG rapper has confirmed that the album will actually arrive on October 30 instead. Meek took to Twitter on Monday (August 12) to give updated details, via a retweet from Rick Ross. "Final word!!!RT @rickyrozay: @MeekMill "Dreams& Nightmares" instores Oct. 30 !!! Eve of Halloween !!!"
Hopefully Meek's album will include less 'controversial' music than his Dreamschasers 2 mixtape, but we doubt it. After making peace with a Philly pastor who attempted to boycott his track "Amen" featuring Drake, Meek got scolded by an assistant district attorney who took issue with his words on "The Ride."
On the Dreamchasers 2 cut, Meek expresses his displeasure for having to deal with assistant D.A. Noel Ann DeSantis, rapping, "The D.A. said she hate me but I don't understand/When I just rocked a show in front of 50,000 fans/I think that bitch racist, she probably in a clan."
Her response: "Everyone is entitled to free speech, but the defendant obviously has a personal issue with this prosecutor," she said outside of the courtroom. "Lobbing personal insults, it just tries to dissuade the prosecution or dissuade the judge from focusing on the defendants actual actions. He certainly tells his opinion, but when you're under supervision you have to respect the judge, the prosecutor, the police."
Meek said that he would refrain from referring to the DA in his music, but maintained that his lyrics came from an honest place. "DeSantis never says anything good about me," he told the judge in court. "I rap with my heart; it's how I feel. She's talking down to me every time. She's talking about me like I'm a criminal."
