Song of the Week: Meek Mill – "Monster"
Mon, 23 Mar 2015 08:30:17
On Saturday night, Meek Mill enjoyed a Rocky-size victory in his hometown of Philadelphia, PA, headlining the Wells Fargo Center for his #WelcomeHome concert. Everybody from Rick Ross and Jeezy to Nicki Minaj joined him for the sold out affair, solidifying his legacy as one of the game’s most important MCs. However, it's "Monster" that really drives that point home. Over a minimalist keyboard, Meek literally tears through bar after bar with the precision of a prizefighter before dropping the song's instantly catchy refrain, "The money turned into a monster."
Meek sounds unfettered, unleashed, and undeniable as he drops every word with a slick savvy. It’s one of his biggest bangers ever, and it hints at very big things to come when Dreams Worth More Than Money drops.
Dreams and Nightmares stands out as a hip-hop milestone, but "Monster" is a sign that the next one will be his classic to date.
