As social media streams light up across the nation with a million fire emojis, Meek Mill is sitting somewhere in his Philadelphia traphouse lighting Cohibas off a Dreamchasers Zippo and smiling. His surprise EP 4/4 just dropped with four scorching hot records and Robert Williams can finally exhale and walk through the cloud that has enveloped his name for the last few months.
The cuts are being touted as records from the much anticipated Dreamchasers 4, but the welcomed mini-project puts Mr. Twitter Fingers back into the vocal booth delivering his electrifying bars and wordplay. “FBH (F**k Being Humble)” is classic Meek, stunting and making sure the entire crew is in position to do the same. You can almost smell the diesel from his fifty quads ripping up Berks Street in North Philly as he barks over the classic Jahlil production.
“Never love them hoes, I be in and out ‘er
If you need the work – know my n****a got it
Drop the 28 for the 36
And cook it right in front of you like Benihana’s”
As long as DC4 delivers more of this same fire, Meek will be in prime position to take control of his career again. With a penchant for putting together back to back hits on past projects, it looks like 2016 could once again be a great year for dream-chasing.
