Meek Mill: DC4

Is it still relevant to rap about gangsta shit?

What’s the difference between a mixtape and an album for a rapper these days? 

In Meek Mill’s case, not a whole lot. 

After dropping the latest in a series, people have questioned whether Meek Mill has evolved. Is it still relevant to rap about gangsta shit? Drugs? Hoes? 

There’s no doubt here that he’s a talented rapper, delivering a mixtape that I’d happily pop on repeat.

But he’s yet to show his range. Reported girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, appears on ‘Froze’ (a song that, interestingly, seems to rip a lot of its style from Drake) and she dominates. 

But then again, she owned Jay-Z, Kanye and Rick Ross on ‘Monster’, so perhaps that’s a moot point.
