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.
