Before hitting the road, Meek headed to Charlotte, NC on February 17 to kick off the 2019 NBA All Star Game a sure-to-be-electrifying performance and appeared on TNT’s Inside the NBA alongside Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.
CHAMPIONSHIPS is Meek’s first full-length album since his release from prison in April 2018 and includes appearances from JAY-Z, Drake, Cardi B, Kodak Black, Rick Ross and Ella Mai, to name a few and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart. Upon the release of CHAMPIONSHIPS, Meek was quickly crowned “the closest thing that rap’s current generation has to a superhero” by the FADER while Rolling Stone proclaimed that “CHAMPIONSHIPS places him up there with the greats.” Pitchfork noted that the album “captures an intensity that the Philadelphia rapper is known for and best at,” and highlights Meek who “raps with a level of buy-in that few of his peers could muster in their imagination.”

About Meek Mill:
North Philadelphia’s Robert Rihmeek Williams, better known as Meek Mill, is no stranger to adversity and triumph. Hailed byRolling Stone as “one of rap’s few voices for the everyman,” He is without question one of the most electrifying hip-hop talents in recent memory. Meek Mill first garnered attention and made waves by chronicling his hard-knock life on a series of stunning mixtapes before releasing his debut album, DREAMS & NIGHTMARES, in October 2012. The project instantly catapulted him into rap superstardom, thanks to his ability to create both high-energy street anthems and soul-bearing, emotionally relatable stories of overcoming struggle and adversity. That same year, Mill announced the launch of his own label imprint, Dream Chasers, named after his mixtape series. In addition to serving as the CEO of Dream Chasers, Mill is also an advocate for criminal justice reform in the United States with a focus on creating stronger prison rehabilitation programs, improving the bail system, shortening probationary periods.
He followed up his debut album with his now platinum-certified sophomore album DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY in 2015, which topped Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums,” “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” and “Top Rap Albums charts” for two consecutive weeks. He released WINS & LOSSES in 2017, which he followed up with LEGENDS OF THE SUMMER, in July 2018. The 4-song project was heralded by “Stay Woke (feat. Miguel),” a powerful statement record chronicling his own experiences battling the injustices of the legal system.
