Meek Mill, “Dreams & Nightmares” – Album Review

Transient

The hype around Meek Mill has been humming since the rapper signed with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group last year.  Mill’s debut, “Dreams & Nightmares,” shows he has great potential as a storyteller, but his lyrical flow is not consistent.  His wordplay is subpar especially on songs like “Believe It,” “Young & Getting’ It,” and “Lay Up.”  Those of you familiar with Meek will know that he is a passionate rapper but I find that on some of the tracks his voice is too loud, making the words difficult to digest.  In my opinion the Philadelphia-bred rapper thrives more when he takes it down a notch and delves into his backstory.

Meek’s 14-song full-length, released on Maybach Music Group, covers both the heaven and hell that he has had to walk through.  This latest album release does not flow as well as his previous projects, but still includes a few gems that make it worth the listen.  Undoubtedly “Dreams & Nightmares” will be making noise on radios near you.

Rating 5/10
