It was just a week ago (Sept. 9), when Meek Mill officially returned to wax with a brand new song titled “Early Mornings.” Using a beat that Meek Mill claims to have found on YouTube, the Philly star delivers raps about the lifestyles of him and his crew that have earned them the title:
A matching visual also appears in “Early Mornings,” which focuses on the impoverished Kensington, Philadelphia neighborhood that Meek Mill visited. Over the course of the four-minute clip, he can also be seen enjoying South Philly and Dyckman Park in New York City.
The last time Meek Mill released an album was with Expensive Pain in April 2016. This album included 18 songs and features from Lil Durk, Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, A$AP Ferg, Kehlani, Giggs, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Vory, and Brent Faiyaz. Approximately 95,000 album equivalent units were sold in the first week, which ranked it among the top three albums on the Billboard 200. Since then, Meek has been largely under the radar from a musical standpoint, appearing only twice on The Game’s most recent album DRILLMATIC Heart vs. Mind we talked about in August.
