Meek Mill is currently one of the most established rappers in the modern Hip-Hop world. On top of his great songs, Mill is also a loving and compassionate person, especially towards his family and also his friends.
Meek Mill released his fifth studio album Expensive Pain on October 1st and it had features from Lil Baby, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Uzi Vert and others.
While speaking to Apple Music ahead of its release, Meek Mill stated that he doesn’t get the same level of respect as other eminent rappers such as Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller & YG. He added that he wants that level of respect as well.
“Personally, and it’s up for the fans to have an opinion, and that’s what keeps me going, I don’t feel like I get the credit that I deserve as far as the artists. I come from the 2012 era. If you go check the [2011 XXL Freshman Class cover], shout out to Vanessa, I’m on the cover. It’s me, YG, it’s Kendrick [Lamar], it’s Mac Miller, rest in peace, Fred The Godson.
But all them guys, I respect them highly, and a lot of them guys lasted in the game. I’m one of them guys that’s still here in 2021. I’m about to put on at a talented level, not a marketed level. I want to go straight to the fans.”
We will have to wait and see just how successful Meek Mill’s latest album will be as he certainly put a lot of hard work into it and simply wants the respect Mill believes he deserves.
