Official Releases 4th Quarter 2016

We are just about half way through the final quarter of the 2016 year.  As the year winds down to an end, it never goes by very quickly as there are three major holidays that are celebrated during the last two months.  Thanksgiving, December’s religious holidays, and New Year’s Eve, which as most know, occurs on the final day of the year.  In this posting, we review two of the year’s major releases.  One comes from Philly native Meek Mill and the other is by Gucci Mane, who was recently released from being incarcerated for three years.

The first of the official free mixtapes to be reviewed belongs to Philadelphia emcee Meek Mill who is currently signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group record label.  He has had his share of beef over the past year or so with hip hop artists such as Drake, Joe Budden, and most recently west coast lyricist and former G-Unit member The Game.  Some may say that rapper The Game started the feud to hype up his retail album release of “1992” before it dropped.  Many of Meek Mill’s fan were waiting in heavy anticipation for him to give them the 4th volume of the “Dreamchasers” collection and on October 27th, 2016 he finally delivered it to the streets.  Part 4 contains guest appearances by Tory Lanez, Lil Uzi Vert, girlfriend Nicki Minaj, Quavo, Don Q, Young Thug, 21 Savage, YFN Lucci, Tracy T, Guordan Banks, Pusha T, the late Lil Snupe, and French Montana.

Next, comes the first official street album product by Gucci Mane since being set free after serving a 3 year prison sentence for a probation violation.  There may have been much more hype for this drop, but before he went to jail he recorded a ton of music which was released while he was incarcerated, so it would seem like he never left the game.  He brings along three features on this 14 song title from Rick Ross, Young Dolph, and Travi$ Scott.

We will be back with another review very soon as there have been many official drops within the past 2 months.  It seems like the month’s of October and November are the busiest times of the year for recording artists to be releasing music.   Make sure you stop by frequently as new music is always being added for you listening pleasure.
