Meek Mill is mere hours away from completing his comeback with the release of his highly anticipated Championships album on Friday. Outside of connecting with Cardi B over Bangladesh production, features on the project had remained a secret. That is, until Thursday afternoon (Nov. 29), when Meek gave fans a head start to begin visualizing the LP by unveiling the entire track list.
Most notably, the Philly rapper reunites with Drake on "Going Bad," which serves as the first official collaboration since their famed 2015 feud. JAY-Z and Rick Ross team with Meek for "What's Free," and other guests on the 19-track album include vocal assists from Fabolous, Future, Young Thug, Roddy Ricch, Anuel AA, Kodak Black, Ella Mai, 21 Savage, Harlem's Melii, Jeremih and PnB Rock.
The 31-year-old recently sat down with Ebro Darden at Beats 1 to detail the inspiration behind Championships. "I feel like I'm at a championship stage in my life. I call it beating poverty, beating racism, beating the system, beating gun violence and beating the streets," he explained. "I don't think an album should sound like one thing. I recorded a lot of my music in New York, so my shit is East Coast-inspired. I feel like the game needs an East Coast sound."
