Meek Mill – “Legends of the Summer” review

After rightfully being freed from prison due to a corrupted judge just a couple months ago, Philly rapper Meek Mill has officially returned with his 5th EP.

Things start off with “Millidelphia”, where he triumphantly raps about over an explosive trap instrumental from Swizz Beatz. The next song “Dangerous” with Jeremih & PnB Rock may have a beautiful acoustic instrumental but lyrically, it’s cliché for me. The penultimate track “1am” is an energetic club banger with a bouncy instrumental from longtime friend/collaborator Jahlil Beats & the closer “Stay Woke” is arguably Meek’s best song I’ve heard in a long time. Primarily because after everything he’s been through within the past year, he insightfully touches down on corruption in the judicial system over an atmospheric beat.

I really can’t wait to hear his next full-length album, because this was a short but sweet surprise. He could’ve added a few more tracks, but this is the most focused & passionate that I’ve heard Meek in YEARS.

Score: 3.5/5
