Meek Mill Explains Concept Behind "Dreams And Nightmares Intro"

Meek Mill delves into the meaning behind the first track off of "Dreams and Nightmares."

On Monday (October 22), Meek Mill released "Dreams and Nightmares Intro" off of his debut album of the same name.

"I'm just goin' in like...using lyrical abilities, flows, energy," he explained of the song in an interview with XXL. "Being aggressive, cocky. I start off like real calm and just talkin' to 'em, really, over a beat.

Meek explained how the second half of the song highlights the duality between dreams and nightmares. "And the second part, when it get to the nightmare part, I just start screaming, going bananas, to the top of my lungs. Stating facts and getting real arrogant and real disrespectful, just showing them both sides. I could be a dream, I could be a nightmare."

"I'm just telling you my story, and how I got here," he added.

      See this is what we are missing in the world today... love. You know I'm not feeling the love to much. Why all the hate an anger. I'm spreading the kind of joy on this site that a lot of people haven't seen hear in a long time. You know I hate to tell you guys but right now I feel kind of like Jesus Christ or Mahatma Gandhi. I'm being persecuted for instilling a righteous and meaningful message in every one of my post. Sincerely Yours - Malone

  • poetic assasin

    lmao @ me pushing play and it is an Action Bronson song -- real lyrics!! Meek just said a bunch of nothing - this is the same thing he does on every song hah.

    Everybody's talking bout supporting Kendrick and Meek but none y'all seems to realize that none of them is going to see that #1 spot. Taylor Swift dropped her album this week and the charts is going to be her bitch for the next 6 weeks; Knowing her she probably sells a million in the 1st week and probably move 700,000 units in the 2nd week.

      Kendrick and Meek two wack ass industry lyricists. They get cosigns from industry power players, known for cosigning bullshit, and all of a sudden, "it's cool to be a lyricists again??" FUCK OUTTA HERE. These niggas is below average, It's these new new niggas that DON't have a clue about the culture, except what MTV and the radio is feeding them. These dudes IS NOT REAL. I Know Real Headz understand, fuck these fraud ass "RAP" fans who think some washed up rapper's account balance reflects how much music knowledge they have. make ya own money niggas! Stop dickeating and get your share!!!!! Fuck these selfish ass fake millionaires!

I really hope you ain't from philly saying that bullshit, because he ain't doin it for Philly, he doin it for meek. so hop off his nutsack nigga, if he ain't payin you to promote, Shut the fuck up.

    • real

      What do u mean what concept isnt there? He went from rags to riches and hes do it for the hood? thats not a concept, thats him bragging about how much money he has for a whole album. If your gay ass likes to dick ride rappers who tell you how much richer they are than you, then go ahead and suck his cock because you obviously dont have one
