Meek Mill unveils new video for “Expensive Pain”
The track can be found on Meek’s new album of the same name.
This past weekend, Meek Mill dropped off his fifth studio LP Expensive Pain, which boasts 18 tracks with additional contributions from Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Kehlani, A$AP Ferg, Moneybagg Yo, Giggs, Young Thug, Vory, Lil Uzi Vert, and Brent Faiyaz. Led by the singles “Flamerz Flow,” “Sharing Locations,” and “Blue Notes 2,” the Philly star’s latest is expected to move between 85,000 to 95,000 album equivalent units following its first full week of release.
Following more recent visuals from Expensive Pain for “Intro (Hate On Me)” and “On My Soul,” fans can now see a new clip for its title track, a Darko, Vianey OJ, and DZL-produced cut that probably best explains the overall nature of the album, with emotionally charged lyrics about the ups and downs of fame and fortune:
“And this expensive pain, when you ridin’ through the trenches, bulletproof all on the Range, this expensive pain, lovin’ on the bitch you claim knowin’ some rich niggas hittin’, it’ll never be the same, this expensive pain, this expensive pain, went through some shit about this money, I seen some niggas change, expensive pain…”
Directed by Carters Vision, the accompanying video is filled with footage of Meek Mill living his life, with shots of the MMG emcee on his private jet, in a Rolls Royce Phantom, taking a swim, with his crew of bikers in the hood, and much more. Jim Jones, Fabolous, Rowdy Rebel, Pusha T, and more make cameo appearances as well.
As previously reported by REVOLT, Meek Mill recently spoke about wanting the same recognition that his fellow rap peers receive, specifically in regards to those that joined him as a XXL Freshman back in 2011:
“Personally, and it’s up for the fans to have an opinion, and that’s what keeps me going, I don’t feel like I get the credit that I deserve as far as the artists … I’m one of them guys that’s still here in 2021.”
