The teasers arrive after Meek Mill recently announced he’d be dropping some new tunes starting in August to honor the anniversary of his father’s death. The rapper wrote on Twitter that by the fall he plans to flood the streets with 10 independent mixtapes following his split with his Roc Nation management earlier this year.

“10 tapes independently starting September,” he wrote. “New music dropping AUGUST 18 the day my dad died is when I start wylinnnnnnn again. I’m not dropping albums on Friday either!”

Meek Mill followed up Championships with Expensive Pain in 2021, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with an estimated 93,000 total album-equivalent units earned. The achievement earned Meek his fifth consecutive Top 3 debut.

The release of Expensive Pain stirred up some controversy, however, as Meek aired out his Atlantic Records team at the time and accused them of being unsupportive during the project’s rollout.

“They didn’t put nothing into expensive pain and then said I can’t drop another project for 9 months at the end of my contract after I made them 100’s of millions,” he tweeted in February. “How would [sic] can anybody survive that … most rappers can’t speak because they depend on these companies ‘I don’t.’”
