Meek Mill’s ‘Dreams & Nightmares’ Album

“Double M, yeah that’s my team, Rozay the captain, I’m lieutenant”.

Dreams & Nightmares is a story, not an album. From growing up in the hood, going to prison to now being worth millions, Meek Mill tells you every single detail you want to know. From the intro to “Young Kings”, the mood constantly switches throughout the album.Meek stated that the album isn’t “gonna be all over the place like the mixtapes. This album I’ma make it connect, I’ma try to perfect my craft a little more, make sure the flows touch the beats a little better, make sure the beats sound clearer.”

A track Meek paid particular attention to was “Traumatized”, where he discusses the torture of losing his father at such a young age. Meek doesn’t hold back emotion, “when I find the nigga that killed my daddy, know I’ma ride, hope you hear me, I’ma kill you nigga”, then going on to rap “you ripped my family apart and made my momma cry, so when I see you nigga, it’s gonna be a homicide”. Contrasting to this track comes “Maybach Curtains”, featuring Nas, John Legend and the captain, Rick Ross. Meek unfolds his dreams on to a song, going from what he was, to what he’s become.

Other notable songs: “Real Niggas Come First”, “In God We Trust”, “Amen”, “Tony Story Pt. 2” and “Believe It”
