Meek Mill released his sophomore album Dreams Worth More than Money this past Tuesday. Meek Mill really avoided a sophomore slump with this album; he really diversified his style and beats a lot on this album. There are a few songs that I could have done without, but regardless it’s still a good album. My favorite songs off this album are “R.I.C.O (feat Drake)”, “ I Got The Juice”, and “All Eyes On You (feat Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown)”.
“R.I.C.O. (feat Drake)” – The beat on this song is really good, and I personally loved this song when it leaked. Drake goes perfect alongside the beat if you listen close and the lyrics he is spitting are really funny and well written. This is a song you would bump on the way to a party. It’s a song that gets me hyped just a bit. Meek Mill on this track does well too but Drake just kills it really well.
“I Got The Juice”- This song is a straight banger, this is a song you have to bump real loud when you driving down the freeway. You got to bump this song on the way to a party with your friends or something. This song could be on a gym playlist it just gets you going. The beat is so great on this song and Meek goes off on it as he raps right alongside the beat.
“All Eyes On You (feat Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown)” – Another song on this album with Meek Mills new lady Nicki Minaj and they absolutely kill it. My favorite part of this song is not only beat but when both Nicki and Meek Mill rap like Biggie from his song “Notorious Thugs”. I liked Nicki’s verse on here but I think Meek dominated this track; his verse just sounded a little better.
Meek Mill did a great job on this album, I really didn’t expect him to avoid the sophomore slump but he came in real clutch on this album. Everything was a different style for from his verses to his beats. He didn’t yell on every album like he did on his first album and his mixtapes. It was nice to see that he could be diversifying himself. That being said this album does deserve a listen if you are a hip-hop fan.
