Mill's Dream-Chasers


                                                                    By Miguel Zamaguey

Yesterday Maybach Music Group's up & coming artist Meek

Mill teamed up with DJ Drama again to release his much anticipated

mixtape, Dream-Chasers 3. The follow up to the immensely successful

DC2, which was released last summer before Meek's debut album; Dreams

& Nightmares, has been on the wanted list for his rap fans. With

16 tracks for his fans, (2 tracks are skits and one features Meek's

departed artist Lil Snupe), Meek Mill's brings his usual drug &

gun raps along w/ money talk that has made him one of the urban

youth's favorite lyricist.

Dream-Chasers 3 boasts production from “super producer”

Scott Storch, Key Wane, Cardo and Boi-1da, and also features guest

appearances from Grand Hustle's Travis $cott, (produced 'clique' for

GOOD's compilation album Cold Summer), Future, constant collaborator,

Bad Boy's French Montana, Young Money's Nicki Minaj, whew! Still more

to go, With features from rap veterans Jadakiss and Fabolous, MMG

head Rick Ross, Cash Money's Birdman, even Diddy & Mase make

appearances, (although Diddy doesn't rap).

With all the special guests you'd think Meek would be

overseen, on the contrary; Meek Mill takes every song a makes it his,

regardless of who else is on the song with him. In the song “Make

Me”, Meek raps of his indifference towards “Haters” and anyone

wishing him ill will, in fact, he credits them with making him whi

he is. The song “Ain't Me” which features Yo Gotti & Omelly,

Meek switches his rapping style into a more melodic folw in which he

partially sings his verse, making me think of this as a possible

street single. “Hip Hop” has a very gritty sound to it, in the

song Meek reminisces about his life back in his neighborhood before

he got the record deal as a smooth beat keeps his rhythm going along

with it. “Heaven or Hell” featuring Guordan Banks singing the

chorus perfectly over a beat derivative of the Luniz's “I Got 5 On

It”, which leads into Meek & Jadakiss' immaculate verses.

All in all, I'd rate Meek Mill's Dream-Chasers 3 a four star

or four and a half mixtape, if you don't like to hear gutter rap this

tape might not be for you, but, it does go pretty good with the

hipsters so there you go, to be hip you have to assimilate. In this

tape I didn't see Meek's formula change drastically, although I will

say, I would have loved to hear a song with Rockie Fresh and Meek.

Til then, I'm Miguel Zamaguey, be safe.
