Multi-platinum rapper & criminal justice activist MEEK MILL reunites with DRAKE in the blockbuster companion video to “GOING BAD,” the latest single from Meek’s critically-acclaimed fourth studio album CHAMPIONSHIPS. Shot in Los Angeles, CA last month, the Kid Art-directed video features cameos from Swizz Beatz, Nipsey Hussle, T.I., Mustard, J Prince, Jas Prince, PnB Rock, Shy Glizzy, the Dreamchasers and more. Watch the video for “GOING BAD (FEAT. DRAKE)” BELOW.
This new video comes after a whirlwind last few months, which saw the release of Meek’s latest #1 album CHAMPIONSHIPS, the partnership with Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, Michael Rubin (Philadelphia 76ers co-owner), Robert Kraft (New England Patriots owner) and more to launch the REFORM Alliance and a much-talked about performance on Saturday Night Live. He was also seen recently performing at the Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII victory party in Atlanta, GA. Next up for the Philadelphia superstar is “THE MOTIVATION TOUR.” Joined by special guests Lil Durk and Kash Doll, the 18-date tour kicks off in Miami, FL on February 19 and runs until March 24 in Atlanta, GA.

Before hitting the road, Meek will head to Charlotte, NC on February 17 to kick off the 2019 NBA All Star Game with a sure-to-be-electrifying performance and will be appearing on TNT’s Inside the NBA alongside Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.
CHAMPIONSHIPS is Meek’s first full-length album since his release from prison in April 2018 and includes appearances from JAY-Z, Drake, Cardi B, Kodak Black, Rick Ross and Ella Mai, to name a few and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart. Upon the release of CHAMPIONSHIPS, Meek was quickly crowned “the closest thing that rap’s current generation has to a superhero” by the FADER while Rolling Stone proclaimed that “CHAMPIONSHIPS places him up there with the greats.” Pitchfork noted that the album “captures an intensity that the Philadelphia rapper is known for and best at,” and highlights Meek who “raps with a level of buy-in that few of his peers could muster in their imagination.”
