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.
