“Assidy, boy you’re trash to me/I diss you, do the math, that’s subtracting me,” Meek Mill recited during his crippled “Started From the Bottom” freestyle aimed at Cassidy. Apparently Cassidy’s “R.A.I.D.” was more than metaphorical because it seemed like Meek’s nervous system was infected with actual Raid.
Not only did he bizarrely censor his own rhymes, he failed to articulate how he and Cassidy’s beef is similar to 50 Cent and Ja Rule’s. Speaking of Fif, he mentioned Rick Ross’ good friend quite a few times. Read More
The morning after is always worse, especially when you can’t remember a thing from the night before. On the remix of “In the Morning,” a song from 2011’s Every Girl, Bridget Kelly details how she can only tell her man how she feels when she’s had a few shots of liquid courage. Meek Mill, on the other hand, who has had one too many drinks, freaks side chicks at night and realizes his lapse of judgment the next morning. Burdened with guilt, he confesses all on his girlfriend’s voicemail. I’m not sure where the two stories meet, but both artists’ smooth vocals make for a good song. Read More
Stylists were in dire need at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball II at the Harman Center for the Arts in Washington, D.C. The ball, thrown by Russell Simmons, honored MC Lyte and Doug E. Fresh with lifetime achievement awards. John Legend, Swizz Beatz and 2 Chainz also received awards.
Lil’ Mama, Yo Yo and Marsha Ambrosius were among the performances.Lance Gross, Meek Mill, Jadakiss, Tyson Beckford, Victor Cruz, Terrence J, Lala, Angela Simmons and Chrissy Teigen were also in attendance.
If you’re looking for work, Maybach Music Group may need a few professional mourners if Cassidy continues verbally assaulting Meek Mill.
Initially, the beef between the Philly rappers was snooze fest. However, seconds into Cass’ “R.A.I.D. (Robert Ass Is Dead)” diss, I headed over to
iTunes PirateBay to download all of Cassidy’s albums. I’ve never understood the hype behind the guy responsible for “Hotel” and “My Drink and My Two Step,” but his 10-minute audio book left me intrigued. Read More
Intriguing rap beefs are rarities nowadays, so Meek Mill and Cassidy’s lackadaisical back-and-forth continues making blog headlines. Last week, the “Condom Style” rapper unleashed on the MMG rapper with “Me Myself & iPhone,” then traded words with him on Twitter. Meek has since yelled at Cass on “Repo,” a track produced by Jahlil Beats. Listen to both diss records below. Read More
Nas recalls listening to Al Green and cites how he’s similar to Jesus, Prince and Sade on Meek Mill’s “Maybach Curtains,” a lush, nostalgic single from Mill’s Dreams and Nightmares debut. Infamous & The Agency laced the attractive instrumental with a simple piano melody and crashing percussions.
John Legend sets the tone of the ‘from rags to riches’ mantra with his rich vocals. “Look how far we’ve came, through the fire I stood knowing we would reign,” he croons. Meek follows with a poorly delivered verse about going from dealing drugs to making $100,000 on Thursdays. Read More
The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards were recorded a few weeks ago in Atlanta and aired nation-wide last night. Wiz Khalifa opened the show with “Work Hard, Play Hard” and brought out Rick Ross’ good friend Young Jeezy and Taylor Gang affiliate Juicy J. Hippies and gangstas can indeed coexist.
Meek Mill turned the Civic Center into a church, kind of. It was a congregation of sorts, but I doubt anything spiritual was involved in his performance of “Amen.” He brought out fellow newcomer Kirko Bangz for “Young & Gettin’ It.”
Kendrick Lamar may be a sublime lyricist but performing isn’t his forte (most of the acts lack this specialty actually). The nappy-headed, non-voter failed to move the crowd with “The Recipe” and “Swimming Pools (Drank).” Read More
Meek Mill may be a one-dimensional rapper, but he certainly has an artistic eye–at least when it comes to his cover art. Earlier today, the Philly rapper unveiled the conceptual cover for his Dreams and Nightmares LP. It goes without saying that the Rolex represents dreams, while the handcuffs represent nightmares. The album is due out a day before Halloween via MMG/Warner Bros. Read More
