Three days before his Championships album hits the internet, information regarding Meek Mill’s tracklist for the project has hit the web, and it’s looking pretty epic.
In a report Vulture posted earlier yesterday (Nov. 27), Meek opens up about his 18-track LP, which will feature appearances from Cardi B, Kodak Black, Ella Mai, Fabolous and Anuel AA. It also includes an interpolation from Beyoncé’s classic 2003 single “Me, Myself and I.” Seeing as Bey supported the freeing of Meek Mill on DJ Khaled’s “Top Off” earlier this year, it’s only right Meek gives a nod to the queen.
According to Vulture, Meek’s Bardi collaboration, which was previously hinted at last month, will include what they say is a subtle shot to Nicki Minaj. On the track, Bardi reportedly raps, “I been hardworking and humble,” lyrics the publication believes are a response to Nicki’s accusing Bardi of paying for radio play.
In another interesting note, Vulture’s report also indicates that Meek Mill has a Kodak Black-assisted, Tay Keith-produced track on the new album. On the track, he delivers some bars some might also take as shots at Nicki, though he doesn’t specify any woman in particular. “I don’t want my old bitch back but I still wanna fuck,” Meek raps on the song. Nicki and Meek broke up in 2017.
While speculation about the meaning of lyrics is fun, it’s nothing compared to getting to hear them in their intended glory when the songs are finally released. That said, be sure to check out Championships when it drops this Friday.
