Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is here! But it’s not all fun and games and stuffing your face with food. While we sit comfortably in our humble abode with our loved ones, celebrating with a feast, there are those who go out and make sure to help those in need. Sadly, however, rappers aren’t exactly the first profession that’d cross your mind as being “helpful” as these are merely gangsters, drug dealers, and entertainers, right? Wrong. For example Birdman and Cash Money are participating in their 20th annual Turkey Giveaway this week. And that’s not all, as rappers like Jeezy, T.I., and Ludacris regularly find themselves helping local Atlanta natives enjoy their Thanksgiving as well. So, we here at iHipHop decided we’d attempt to dispel the myths of rappers being careless and lazy, and showcase their good deeds, by assembling a picture slideshow of them giving back on Thanksgiving. Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!
Meek Mill’s current stint in prison doesn’t exactly have a known release date, however that hasn’t stopped his squad from keepin’ the streets hot for him. Today the official Dreamchasers Soundcloud received an update with a new Meek Milly track “F**k You Mean” featuring Lil… err, Boosie Bad Azz. Listen after the jump.
This album sounds like it will be jumpy and feverish while not necessarily different. “I Like It” is a new boast from Meek and another of many middle fingers to the norm. Then again, his standard has been clear for a while…party and bullsh*t over snappy beats. Mac Miller can get with this. Check it after the jump.
Didn’t know it was possible to darken Havoc’s “Quiet Storm” but this does it…with a manic Meek shouting over a horror-core chirp. It’s an unsure flossing song in the run-up to an album (Dreams Worth More Than Money) that may arrive with its creator in prison. Maybe that’s the happiest place for a Philly outlaw though. Check the track after the jump.
The only thing this video is missing is Meek Mill as a muppet. I’m sure he would have refused that idea in the name of keeping it “real” though. There are a lot of muppets in it anyway, and that makes an infidelity song way more weird. Take a look for yourself after the jump.
MMG is Rick Ross’s solid contribution to the rap game because it extends the power of his influence to recruit other great street artists to urban radio rotation. His two marquee acts are in a feud that Meek Mill set off on social media by calling Wale corny. Check the tweets after the jump.
Meek Mill hit the Hot 97 studios this morning for a sit-down with Ebro and Cipha Sounds in which Meek spoke on his upcoming LP, Dreams Worth More Than Money, why he’s done with mixtapes, his probation and more. Read More
The MMG boys are back. Meek Mill and Rozay premiere the visual for “Off The Corner,” a new release which may end up on Meek’s upcoming Dreams Worth More Than Money project. This is hot.
