Sgt. Paul Shavack of the Delaware State Police said that officers arrived on the scene at the Moodswing Niteclub just before 2 a.m. to find between 600-700 people trying to flee the gunshots. The police believe there was more than one shooter, but no suspects have been identified.
After months of promotion and a handful of delays, Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill has released his long-awaited Dreamchasers 3 mixtape. The release is the latest in a series of free album that initially helped propel Meek Mill into the national spotlight. The latest installment contains 16 brand new tracks and features guest appearances from the likes of Rick Ross, French Montana, Nikki Minaj, Diddy, Lil Snupe, and Jadakiss – just to name a few. You can find the track listing and official download link at the end of this post.
Dreamchasers 2 was the first album from Meek Mill I experienced, and it was enough to convert me into a fan overnight. The ferocity in each verse hits your ears with an unimpeachable sincerity, and based on the tracks I’ve heard off DC3, it seems safe to assume Mill has another smash on his hands. If you want to stream the album before downloading, head over to Audiomack for a stream of the full record.
Meek Mill has teased tour announcements for the fall, but at this time no such information has been made available to the press. (more…)
Hip-hop artists tend to brag about how many possessions they have acquired since becoming famous, and that’s not limited to material goods. From products to people and beyond, objectification is big in urban music right now. Bucking that trend, though, is one artist who still chooses to focus on inspiring another generation with stories of life before the fame. His name is Ace Hood, and today we’re excited to share his new video for “Before The Rollie.”
On “Before The Rollie” Ace Hood, accompanied by an extra verse from Meek Mill, dives deep into his history to share with fans the struggles he faced while crafting his now internationally recognized sound. Mill adds his own perspective to the tale, but the message that success does not come overnight is the same. Think of it as the road that leads to all those manifestations of success that other rappers boast about.
The video for “Before The Rollie” reiterates the narrative of both Hood and Mill starting from the bottom, with visuals that build from street performances in rough parts of a city to far classier settings as the track progresses. It’s a structure meant to reflect the journey both emcees have taken, and though some of what you see is pretty stereotypical for hip-hop videos, it’s an idea that works quite well. You can view the video below.
Ace Hood released “Before The Rollie” along with a dozen additional tracks on his July release, Trials And Tribulations. If you enjoy this song and want to hear more of his work, head over to iTunes and pick up the record. (more…)
Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill has never been one to be short on words, and his latest effort proves that tenfold. After years behind the mic, Mill is taking his talents to the world of writing with the release of his first book, Tony’s Story.
Now, before you go an wonder if Tony is actually Meek, he’s not (not directly, at least). The story Mill has crafted for his book debut is one of life on the streets, and it seems clear from the description that it was inspired by the rapper’s own life. The official synopsis reads:
Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich. Although they grew up like brothers, once money and envy entered the equation, greed took over and loyalty went out the door.
After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge. (more…)
Taken from his Starvation 2 mixtape, “Goin Down” pairs Hood with Maybach Music Group heavyweight Meek Mill. The clip features the pair performing between expensive cars, with cuts to shots of night life and strippers added to keep things exciting. It’s typical urban video fare, but there is something here for nearly every genre fan. You can view the video for “Goin Down” below.

Dubbed the “Dreams Come True” tour, the latest outing from the Philadelphia native will take him from Boston to California in less than a month.
