DC4 – Meek Mill

Meek Mill has finally released his highly anticipated “DC4”(Dream Chasers 4). It was looking like that he wasn’t going to be releasing it at all this year, but after some time he let it hit Spotify and Apple music. It is debuted as a mixtape but back  in the day mixtapes were free to download, you didn’t buy them. My favorite songs off this album or whatever you would call it are “Lights Out”, “Outro”, and “Shine”

“Lights Out”- I liked the piano that begins the beat, it gives it such a pump up aspect to it. The beat when it comes in is great, simple but effective. I can see this being played in the Sixers locker room, or even in the gym by anyone looking to get motivated. Meek’s flow is nice on this track, he doesn’t shout too much on this track like he normally does. As well he is moving past dissing rappers and drake specifically, which is a good idea because a lot of us are tired of it.

“Outro”-  What I like is that we are getting some of this unreleased Lil Snupe features finally after he was sadly murdered. It is a shame because Lil Snupe’s verse on here goes so hard on the beat. I also love when Meek goes on these holy beats and straight makes you feel like cranking the volume all the way up.  I loved that they even changed the beat up a little bit half way through.

“Shine”- I always like when Meek does these motivation songs because this is where he shows off his chops. I liked the drums on the track here, they really stand out to me. This is also one of the tracks where Meek doesn’t have a feature, which is huge for him to be able to stand alone by himself. You can really hear the passion in his voice when you hear his lyrics in this song, which is always inspiring to hear from an artist.

A lot of this album is great, you have a nice healthy amount of turn up songs on here and non-turn up songs. Then you have the motivational songs that Meek shines the most on, the ones that are going to get a lot of people motivated for the day or the gym. What I like most is that he barely mentions Drake at all on this album which is nice, that he can move past it and accomplish such a great album. He does have a lot of features which a lot of people criticized about which I can understand. Though that fact doesn’t stop the fact that all those songs are really good so It doesn’t matter to me at least.
