Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill plans to have a big 2023 of his own. On his social media accounts, Mill has shared extensive previews of new music, all with visuals, with the intention of dropping an album every quarter this year – for a total of four.
In the linked Instagram post, Mill indicated “Dream Catching” as the title of the first trimester album. “‘Dream Catching’ movie…dates coming soon… #2023 1st quarter…I’m loading for a reason Let’s say!” The visuals show the 35-year-old rapper performing his new music on a yacht, in a gym, in a museum and on the streets of Philadelphia. Additionally, Mill shared a teaser of a track with fellow Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert, commenting in the caption: “Gotta hit the road ASAP!” With a hashtag titled “Philly Motion.”
(It’s not quite as busy a schedule as Kanye West releasing or producing an album every week for five weeks in 2018, but it’s ambitious nonetheless.)
The “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper last released an official studio effort — his fifth — in late 2021 with “Expensive Pain,” an 18-track record featuring the likes of Lil Baby, Lil Dark, Young Thug, Brent Fayez and more. However, the Maybach Music Group artist and Dream Chasers Records founder kept fans excited with the unofficial release of his “Flammers 5” mixtape in late 2022, continuing a mixtape series he started before he became famous. On the tape, Mill raps over popular existing beats, such as Kodak Black’s “Super Gremlin,” DJ Khaled’s “God Did,” Future’s “Wait For You,” and more.
After the mixtape’s November 22 release, Mill replied to a fan that his next album was coming out “in the next 8 weeks”. On the business side, Mill recently ended his management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Entertainment in July, although the two artists are still working together on the Reform Alliance prison reform initiative.
