Maybach Music Group’s rising star Meek Mill recently caught up with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez to talk about his upcoming debut LP. Although the Philadelphia up-and-comer kept tight-lipped about the project itself, he did reveal that his as-of-yet to be titled debut should be due out sometime this summer.
“Actually, I’m working on my album, trying to get my album right for the beginning of summer,” he explained.
Meek also talked about his eight-month old child and balancing his personal life and budding career. He explained that while he’s always on the road touring and working, he makes sure to get home as often as possible and be a part of his child and long-time girlfriend’s lives. He also added that his experiences in jail remind him of the kind of life he wants to maintain, one that includes his family and career.
“My baby’s eight-months [old],” he explained. “I make it happen, though. You always gotta go home, at least once a week and make sure everything’s straight…I’m in a relationship. It’s rough sometimes, you know how it gets, leaving home for a month [to tour]…we make it work. I ain’t married, I’m only 24 right now, but things gonna happen.”
He added, “My girl’s a rider. I was in jail before [MMG blew up], locked up nine months. My girl was riding, com[ing to] see me every week…[that part of my life’s] over. It was a learning experience, it was a good thing for me, though. I just had to see it and know that’s not what I want to be. I get to come out and tell some young boys that that’s what they ain’t want to be. It put me on a straight path.”
