NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Maybach Music Group and Atlantic Records have announced the release date of "DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY," the eagerly awaited new album from Meek Mill. The album -- which follows his 2012 blockbuster debut, "DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES" -- arrives at last on September 9th. The album features the first single "I Don't Know (feat. Paloma Ford)," as well as collaborations with Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, with many more to be announced soon. Watch the trailer for "DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY": http://youtu.be/FEdEstF8wdE.
"Meek continues to record and build his Dreamchasers brand as the cultures next biggest thing," says Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross of Meek's influence on the hip-hop world.
The electrifying companion video for "I Don't Know" -- directed by Eif Rivera (Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne) -- premiered last month as "Jam Of The Week" on MTV Jams, with integration across all other MTV platforms, including their digital and social properties. The video -- now streaming at Meek Mill's official YouTube page -- can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/CnJoBbyTdwY.
"This album is inspired by my real life. Despite all the fame and money, my dreams keep me motivated to be the best rapper in the game," says the Philadelphia-based MC. Meek continues, "growing up in Philly, you only see this life on TV and in the movies. And now I'm living it? This album is for all the young kids who have dreams; to show them that if I can make it, anybody can make it."
"DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY" is preceded by the new single, "I Don't Know (Feat. Paloma Ford)." Produced by Honorable C-Note (2 Chainz, Flo Rida, Waka Flocka Flame), the track is streaming now at Meek Mill's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez6Grg8hmYM.
Meek has recently created a Spotify playlist inspired by his upcoming album, "DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY," which includes his single "I Don't Know (feat. Paloma Ford)," as well as songs from the likes of Jay Z, Rick Ross, Kanye West, Drake, Puff Daddy, Nas and more. Listen to the "#DWMTM" playlist is now streaming here: http://smarturl.it/MeekSpotifyPlaylist.
As if that weren't enough, "DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY" also features the street smash, "Off The Corner (Feat. Rick Ross.)" Directed by MMG's own DRE Films (Rick Ross' "Box Chevy," Meek Mill's "Amen (Feat. Drake)"), the track's companion video clip has already drawn nearly 2 million views at www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9Zmss586dE.
Recent months have also seen Meek Mill lighting up the airwaves with a cavalcade of featured appearances, including DJ Khaled's "They Don't Love You No More (Feat. Jay Z, Meek Mill, Rick Ross & French Montana)," Puff Daddy's "I Want The Love (Feat. Meek Mill)," and Jazmine Sullivan's "Dumb (Feat. Meek Mill)."
In addition to solidifying himself as one of the top rappers in the music industry, Meek has also become an in-demand brand ambassador for the likes of PUMA, Monster Headphones, whose Meek Mill Edition 24K Gold Over-Ear Headphones are ranked among the industry's best and Monster Energy, who have partnered with the rapper as a result of his love of dirt bikes, stemming from the Philly bike scene, which he is an integral part of. Meek continues to prove himself as a lucrative businessman, all while expanding his Dreamchasers label imprint.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "one of rap's few voices for the everyman," Meek Mill is without question one of the most electrifying hip-hop talents in recent memory. The North Philadelphia-based rapper made his bones chronicling his hard knock life on a series of stunning mixtapes, ultimately catching the attention of the attention of Rick Ross, who promptly signed him to his Maybach Music Group imprint.
Fueled by the breakthrough singles, "Amen (Feat. Drake)," "Burn (Feat. Big Sean)," and "Believe It (Feat. Rick Ross)," "DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES" -- executive produced by Rick Ross -- made a remarkable chart debut upon its October 2012 release, entering both Billboard's Top Rap Albums & Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts at #1 and the Top 200 Albums Chart at #2. But it's the instant classic title track, which has since proven a milestone, with none other than Drake hailing the album's introduction as "one of the best rap moments of our generation." "Dreams and Nightmares" was recently featured in an important new study by the American Psychological Association, which noted "the clear and insightful picture that Mills painted of experiences growing up in a crime and violence-filled environment in Philadelphia," while also praising the gifted MC's "ability to articulate the trauma he experienced and how he coped with it."
