Meek Mill recruits Drake, Cardi B, Future, and more for features on newly released ‘Championships’ albumMeek Mill

Philadelphia’s own Meek Mill comes through with the first extended release since his April release from prison. The album, entitled Championships, is sure to rally Meek fans, who’ve waited patiently for the full-length product. Meek initially baited listeners in July with four-track EP, Legends Of The Summer, which saw Jeremih, PnB Rock, Fabolous, and Swizz Beatz link for Meek’s inaugural release following the completion of his prison sentence. Now, the rapper answers the EP with a robust 19-track album that sees appearances from a number of influential bar-spitters, including Future, Cardi B, Young Thug, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Jay-Z, and Meek’s formal partner in rap beef, Drake. Two singles, “Uptown Vibes” and “Oodle O’Noodles Babies,” preceded Championships’ formal, full-fledged arrival.

Championships is flanked by an accompanying tour in support of the effort, which will touch down in 16 different cities. The tour will first heat things up in Miami on February 19, and from there, will traverse a number of major cities, ranging from Houston, to Los Angeles, to New York. Tickets to the tour can be purchased, here.

Meek Mill remains thick in the midst of his legal battle, and it should therefore be unsurprising that motifs from both Mill’s ongoing motion to appeal for a new trial and his preceding time in prison surface on his new EP, Legends Of The Summer, surprise released on July 6.

The four-track offering includes “Stay Woke,” the single that Mill originally debuted duet style with Miguel at the BET Awards in June 2018. “Dangerous,” a collaboration with Jeremih and PnB Rock, “1am,” and Swizz Beatz feature “Millidelphia,” comprise the remaining three songs of Legends Of The Summer, a politicized production that lyrically references the U.S. justice system and relatedly, the need for prison reform. Legends Of The Summer is a cerebral work that marks Mill’s fullest musical release since his April 2018 release from prison.
