Meek Mill, is also known as the rising prince of Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group reigning from Philidelphia. Philidelphia is home to some of Hip Hop's legends such as Will Smith, Eve and of course The Roots. Meek Mill is considered the new generation of Hip Hop and to be perfectly honest, he's not doing anything to help it. Meek Mill is known for his brash and in your face personality but thats because he practically yells and shouts in just about every damn track on this album. Now before I start to offend all Meek Mill fans all around, I will admit that the dude is a very aggressive spitter which I can appreciate because I don't think a person can fall asleep while Meek Mill's voice is playing; and he does surprisingly have rhymes scattered throughout the album, but at the end of the day there is nothing substantial here. All that I got from Meek Mill throughout the album is how unnecessarily braggadocios he is as a person. Every track is about rags to riches, getting women, and how much better (he thinks) he is compared to your favorite rapper to an extent. This kind of theme has been done a hundred times over and I am really sick and tired of it, there is nothing inspiring about this guy whatsoever. What he lacks that is important for any rapper is storytelling, and the poor excusese for storylines that are hidden within the album are dry. The sad thing is that Meek Mill trys to tie in his more conceptual tracks, but they just fail to connect.

The beats on this album are no different than what was on Rick Ross's album or his latest MMG compilation that came out not too long ago.

Tony Story 2, Amen (obviously) and the Dreams and Nightmares Intro are the only songs that make this album interesting. The rest you've heard before from past albums from every other rapper. He even goes as far as making a song with Lil Wayne's format, and that "I got that Justin Beiber" line just upsets me.

Call me a hater, but I know a good album when I hear it, truthfully, Dreams and Nightmares is just.......O.K.

Meek Mill ever since his MMG Debut has stuck to two formulas and has done very little in between. Dreams and Nightmares is no different, which for Meek Mill fans is a very good thing. Dreams and Nightmares is almost what you would expect from Dreamchasers 2 if they took out the freestyles and polished the crap out of it, which isn't a bad thing by any means. Dreams and Nightmares is without a doubt Meek Mill's best album to date and stands out as one of the best Hip Hop albums of 2012

Beats [A-] One of Dreams and Nightmares greatest strengths. Meek has found a few good producers that fit his flow perfectly. Overall the album has some excellent beats that will very easily get stuck in your head. Best Beats: "Lay Up", "Amen", "Believe It", and "Burn"

Hooks [B+] This wasn't the main focus of the album which is fine, but with a few good guest features Meek is able to throw some radio-friendly hooks into the album. Best Hooks: "Maybach Curtains", "Rich & Famous", "Lay Up", and "Amen"

Flow [A-] Meek sounds almost exactly the same in every song, but that isn't a bad thing by any means. Meek has a unique anxious and intense sound to his rapping that is really quite refreshing in comparison to other rappers out there. Best Flow: "Believe It", "Young & Gettin It", "Lay Up", and "Burn"

Lyrics [B] Rap cliche's out the wazoo on this album. Lots of lyrics about drugs, money and girls. But with the beats it works well enough, the time where meek shines the brightest is when he gets serious. Best Lyrics: "Traumatized", "Tony Story (Pt. 2)", "Maybach Curtains", and "Who You're Around"

Originality [C+] If you've heard anything Meek has done on Dreamchasers it's pretty much the same thing.

Meek Mill is a breath of fresh air to the hip-hop game. Dont let "Young and gettin it" fool you, this is not a pop record. Just when you think all anyone talks about is money and p***y, this album takes it, for the most part, back to the basics. There's more about his struggle with his gritty past, and his rise to fame than there is flaunting his money (although there is plenty of BOTH). The production is fantastic! The beats change in mid-song, causing Meek to adjust his flow accordingly, I love that! And he's actually bringing back a storytelling aspect to hip hop! Remember that? Well, its on here. Check out Tony Story pt 1 and 2, its a crazy lil chronicle about street-justice. He's got a lot of skill, and plenty to say, so keep an eye out for Meek Milly in the future

Meek Mill becomes the latest Maybach Music Group member to release an album, 2012's Dreams and Nightmares (Deluxe Version) [Explicit]. Throughout the effort, Meek Mill shows off his agile rhymes and ability to craft solid verses. Sometimes, Meek Mill lacks the innovativeness of his most tuned in contemporaries (Drake and Kid CuDi among them). Dreams and Nightmares is a solid affair, if scattered, lacking in cohesion. Despite this, Dreams and Nightmares ends up being another strong MMG release.

"Dreams and Nightmares" finds Meek Mill rapping in a narrative fashion. Tone The Beat Bull provides dramatic production that allows Meek Mill to rap on `autopilot.' The intensity progresses upon the 1:30 mark inciting Meek Mill's vocals to grow louder and more passionate. Perhaps somewhat clunky, it starts things solidly. Proceeding "In God We Trust," features dark, malicious production (Black Metaphor) proving to be as pointed as Meek Mill's rhymes. Meek Mill continues to tell a story and produces quite an effective, telling hook. "In God We Trust" is overall superb.

"Young and Gettin' It," features standout Kirko Bangz serving as a `crowd pleaser.' Kirko Bangz adds a lift on the smooth vocal hook. The cut features solid production from Jahlil Beats and diverts away from Meek Mill's narrative approach in favor of a topic of `making money.' It is solid, though solid with the reservation that the cut feels like a `sellout' compared to previous cuts. "Traumatized," produced by Boi-1da, returns Meek Mill to what he does best, more narrative-driven rhymes. Not the most elite cut, "Traumatized" is easily above average.
