Meek Mill has been having a great month. On Aug 12, Meek Mill became the first rapper to receive the Nelson Mandela Changemaker Award, an honor provided by the invite-only entity PTTOW! (Plan to Take on the World) for Meek’s work via REFORM Alliance. He then celebrated by liberating a “Mandela Freestyle,” then followed up with other cuts like “Sharing Locations” featuring Lil Baby and Lil Durk.
Last night (Sept 1), he hit us with another one. He tapped in with Lil Uzi Vert to drop his new “Blue Notes 2” single, equipped with a high-speed visual to match. In the new video, Meek is seen whipping ATV’s as he delivers his opening bars:
I’m not in competition with my homies, I’m whippin’ the competition and the Rollie/ I know my opposition never knew me, they wouldn’t be opposition if they know me/ I made a proposition to my hitters I told them to knock me down if you owe me/ I just been slidin’ ‘round, hittin’ them, get ‘em
It’s been three years since Meek Mill’s fourth LP Championships, which saw 19 tracks with a slew of contributions from Cardi B, JAY-Z, Rick Ross, Future, Roddy Ricch, Young Thug, Drake, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, and more. More recently, he shared his 4-song Quarantine Pack last year, along with loose cuts like “Flamerz Flow” and “War Stories.” Meek also joined in on the standout cut “Still Runnin.”
In terms of other recent collabs, Lil Uzi Vert joined Isaiah Rashad for his “From The Garden” video and also assisted Trippie Redd for “Holy Smokes.” Last year, the Philly native gave fans clues about his forthcoming album. He said that the project was “coming soon” and promised it would sound like “old Uzi music.”
