Meek Mill is just days away from releasing his new album.
During a visit to Georgetown University for a conversation about criminal justice reform with Professor Marc Howard, the Philly MC revealed that his new album is due sometime in November.
“Album coming out this month,” Meek told the crowd, who erupted in cheers.
The project is expected to include a song about Colin Kaepernick. According to the New York Post, the powerful lyrics include, “They told Kap to stand up if you want to play for a team, and most of his teammates said the same thing” and “Back in the ’30s you would be killed if you kneeled. They won’t kill you now, they just take you out of the deal.”
At the time, Meek also said that he was planning a surprise album release. “I’m not actually giving out a release date, it’s a surprise album,” he told The Post in September.
It was also revealed that he and Cardi B were in the studio recording a song that has the potential to be a “huge hit.” It’s unclear if the song is for Meek’s album or Cardi’s project.
The album will mark Meek’s first full-length since being released from prison earlier this year, and follows his July EP Legends of the Summer, which spawned the single “Dangerous” with Jeremih and PnB Rock.
November is shaping up to be a busy month for new releases. Kanye West, Mariah Carey, 6ix9ine, Anderson .Paak, Lil Peep, and more are all set to release albums this month.
