Meek Mill only gave the world a week of advance notice before releasing his long-anticipated new album Dreams Worth More Than Money. And on first listen, the brand-new album, which came out today, does a remarkable job combining the crossover-ready version of the Philly rap star with the raw, urgent mixtape version without losing much of its cohesion. The album has a production aesthetic — a big, gothic churn — that allows for some big hooks and some absolutely ferocious rapping. And the Drake collab “R.I.C.O.” immediately stands out as one of the best Drake songs of the past year or so. We’ve already posted “Check” and the Nicki Minaj/Chris Brown collab “All Eyes On You,” and now you can stream the whole thing below.
Dreams Worth More Than Money is out today on Maybach Music Group/Atlantic.
