Jeremih teams with Fabolous on “Ahh Sh*t,” the latest release from his upcoming mixtape Late Nights.
The combination of street anthems (“Tupac Back,“ “I’ma Boss“) and his affiliation with Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group have made Meek Mill one of the most buzzed about new artists in recent memory. Fresh off the release of his mixtape, Dreamchasers 2, which in less than a week accumulated 2,620,013 downloads on DatPiff, Meek spoke with Life&Times about his success, his upcoming debut album Dreams & Nightmares, signing with Roc Nation management and more.
Philly’s own Meek Mill takes the lead on his highly anticipated Dreamchasers 2 mixtape. Rick Ross’ 25-year-old protege gets some help from his famous friends on the 20-track freebie, including Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Fabolous, Trey Songz and Wale. Dreamchasers 2 serves as the prelude to his debut album, Dreams and Nightmares, arriving August 28. Download the mixtape below.
Following the failure of “Google Me” and the subsequent shelving of her debut album, many, myself included, questioned Teyana Taylor’s purpose. Is she a singer? Rapper? Actress? Socialite? Where the hell did she come from? — Questions like these weren’t uncommon and still hold true today. The 21-year-old puts all the questions to rest with the release of The Miseducation of Teyana Taylor, her new mixtape.
The 15-track free download, which features guest spots from Wale, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Travis Porter and Honey Cocaine, is impressive. What I found most impressive is that for someone whose career thus far is defined by blogs, ‘leaked’ nude pictures, and well, this, she is able to craft 15 tracks that almost make you forget you’re listening to a Teyana Taylor mixtape. Shocking, right? I know. Hell, I’m surprised I was able to type that without rolling my eyes.

Dev provides oral stimulation in the suggestive visual for “Kiss My Lips,” the Fabolous-assisted music video from her oft-delayed debut album The Night the Sun Came Up, due March 26. I’m all for oral attention, but this song is ga’bage. Not to mention, the album is arriving nearly a year after “In the Dark” reached its peak. We know how this story is going to end.
MMG’s Meek Mill and Wale jump on Drake’s latest hit “The Motto.” Listen below.
Lifted as the lead single to her fourth studio album, “Get Right” is perhaps the brightest gem in Jennifer Lopez’s catalog. Produced by Rich Harrison, the man behind Amerie’s “1 Thing” and Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” “Get Right” is notable for its use of a horn sample from James Brown’s “Soul Power ’74.” Peaking just outside the top 10 at No. 12 on the Hot 100, “Get Right” became J.Lo’s first chart-topper in Britain since 2001’s “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
Did You Know? “Get Right” received four nominations at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards: Best Dance Video, Best Direction, Best Choreography, and Best Editing.
Lifted as the second single from his sophomore album Street Dreams, Fabolous‘ “Can’t Let You Go” was one of his many hits in 2003. The track reunited the Brooklyn MC with R&B songstress Lil Mo, who he previously worked with on 2000’s “Superwoman (Part 2),” and singer-songwriter Mike Shorey. Produced by Just Blaze, “Can’t Let You Go” reached the top 5 of Billboard’s Hot 100 and peaked at No. 2 on the Hot Hip-Hop & R&B Songs chart.
Did You Know? Fabolous is featured on two of Lil Mo’s biggest singles, 2001’s “Superwoman (Part 2)” and 2003’s “4Ever.”
