Meek Mill - "Wins and Losses" [ALBUM REVIEW] By @iHoodscholar

 Artist: Meek Mill

Album: Wins and Losses

Label: Atlantic/MMG

Best Songs: "Wins and Losses", "Young Black America"

Rating: 3

(Rating System 1-10)


 "Wins and Losses" the latest album from Philly rapper Meek Mill is definitely a loss in my book. The lengthy LP features artists like Rick Ross, Quavo, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign and Young Thug. Even with these popular artist's contributions this album couldn't be saved. Meek is a great rapper. His flow, energy and beat selection is always on point. My issue with this album is strictly content. The title song/intro to the album is cool until you realize that the rest of the album sounds just like it. I feel as if he made the same two songs over and over again throughout this project with the exception of "What You Need" ft. Chris Brown & Ty Dolla $ign, which is a chick song, and "Young Black America" ,which is a great social awareness track. Look, I am a fan of Meek's "Dream Chaser" mixtape series. To be honest he has mixtapes that are 2-3 times better than this album. I wasn't expecting too much versatility from Meek but a lot of these songs could have definitely been cut from the track list. You would think after all the adversity he has seen these past few years he would have gone a bit deeper and found some creative inspiration. On a 1-10 scale I give this album a 3. I hope to never hear it again.
