Meek brings forth the highly anticipated, second instillment of his DreamChasers series, with heavy promotion and word of mouth. This mixtape also features Wale, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Trey Songz and Fabolous, amongst many others. After a few days of playing it back we decided to give our thoughts on it.
Check out our review after the jump.
The tape starts out with some vintage Iron Mike Tyson. Right off the bat, Meek hits us with an eyebrow-raising line “Now theres a lot of bad bitches in the building, Amen// Came in the game killin niggas, J-Lin.” Meek uses clever wordplay while giving us something to think about, and often doesn’t leave much to the imagination. Not to say they aren’t good, but we will give credit where it is due. He did fine this time around.
The tape consists of classic Meek tracks, such as “Burn”, “Amen”, and “A-1″, featuring Kendrick Lamar, which most agree is the hottest track on the entire tape. He seems to really have a knack for picking beats, which we believe he picked up from Ross. The tape is actually quite impressive for a freshman who’s made quite a name for himself in the last year.
The project also features some great productions from All-Star, in which he samples the Fugees classic “Ready or Not.” Other productions consists of Cardiak, Jahil Beats and more. The remix for “House Party” featuring Wale, Fab and Mac Miller also makes it way on this tape as well. Another favorite of ours.
We also get a new feel for Meek on tracks such as “Used to Be,” “Take You Home,” and “Face Down.” These are the type of tracks that wont attract new fans; more for the fact that Meek was tryin to fill space on the tape. Still a really solid effort for Meek on the account of him releasing Dreamchasers last Summer. The mixtape recently exceeded over 3 million downloads in less than 2 days (Another tape that shutdown DatPiff, although thats not as surprising as it once was).
Overall, This is a great showing for the MMG representative; and Fans should be anxiously waiting for his rookie debut album, “Dreams and Nightmares” set to drop this coming July as well. Let’s see if he can keep the “dream” alive when it drops this Summer.
