Meek Mill - "Championships" (ALBUM REVIEW) By @iHoodscholar

"Championships" is a fitting title for the latest album by Philly's own Meek Mill. This is Meek's fourth studio album and it comes after a lot of trials & tribulations including being imprisoned for violating a 10 year old gun charge. His last project "Wins and losses"  didn't really impressed me but I went into this one expecting him to redeem himself and he did.

As usual Meek's track selection is dope from intro to end. The first song "Trauma" produced by DJ Don Cannon samples Barclay James Harvest's "Taking Me Higher". He goes deep into "Black man in America" consciousness. It's  very real, vulnerable and personal. Fabulous goes in on "Uptown Vibes" produced by Papamitrou. It's definitely a "Summer in the City" bop.  The song "On Me" ft. Cardi B is going to kill in the clubs and the radio. The hook is catchy and the beat is stripper friendly. I expect to see a video for it soon. The biggest song on this project is "What's Free" produced by Streetrunner.  It samples Biggie's "What's Beef" and features both Jay-Z and Rick Ross.  I love the hook and in my opinion this is one of Jay's best verses in years. I could have personally done without "Splash Warning" ft. Future & Roddy Rich. With that being said Meek's verse is decent & I see the appeal of the production. 

Drake & Meek back together on the song "Going Bad" & he gets Kodak Black on "Tic Tac Toe". Both songs are catchy, with the feature artist on the hook & serve the same purpose, flexing. "What's Free", Championships", "Pay You Back" ft 21 Savage & "Stuck In My Ways" are my favorite tracks on this project but that was hard to decide. I can appreciate the versatility and realness of this album. The arrangement of the tracks kind of threw me off though. I feel like the album didn't flow well as a collective even though it's full of solid songs. Also, I love well placed samples in any hip hop project but there wasn't a lot of individuality put on them. If this was a mixtape I wouldn't even bring this up but, this is the fourth album from a veteran. In conclusion, we all already knew Meek could spit. I have enjoyed a lot of his music but this is my favorite project of his to date.
