Meek Mill has announced he’ll be dropping some new music next month that will arrive on the anniversary of his father’s death.
The Philly rapper — whose last album was 2021’s Expensive Pain — hasn’t released any singles in 2022, but he plans to flood the streets for the rest of the year, according to one of his latest tweets.
Meek has said that he’s going to deliver 10 projects independently without label backing starting in September, but fans shouldn’t expect the tapes to arrive as part of the traditional Friday release cycle.
“10 tapes independently starting September … new music dropping AUGUST 18 the day my dad died is when I start wylinnnnnnn again,” he tweeted on Wednesday (July 27). “I’m not dropping albums on Friday either!”
Meek Mill seems to be looking for a fresh start with his career. It was recently reportedly that he had split with Roc Nation Management.
“I’m personally handling my own business so I can take risk and grow ..we came to that agreement together,” he wrote. “I have a label deal with roc for my artist and I got reform super tied with them and many other investments wit jigga.”
Meek has had ties to JAY-Z’s company since coming on board in 2012, where Kevin Durant associate Rich Kleiman served as his manager. The Philly rhymer entered into a joint venture deal between his Dreamchasers label and Roc Nation in 2019.
Label trouble has been brewing for Meek as he’s had several rants targeting Atlantic Records regarding how he believes they’ve limited his creative freedom and “starved him” out of millions of dollars.
“They didn’t put nothing into expensive pain and then said I can’t drop another project for 9 months at the end of my contract after I made them 100’s of millions,” he tweeted in February. “How would [sic] can anybody survive that … most rappers can’t speak because they depend on these companies ‘I don’t.’”
