Meek Mill has been releasing loads of new music within this first half of 2017. After dropping his Meekend Music EP, his record “Glow Up” and “Whatever You Need” which featured Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign, the Philly spitter is back with a conscious song that also comes with a visual called “YBA.”
Directed by Spike Jordan, this video captures first hand the violence committed against black youths in America. It also delves into black-on-black crimes and takes a dive into the gang violence and drug game that has overtaken the city of Philadelphia and most parts of this nation. With a heartwarming hook provided by The Dream and a few samples thrown in there from Donald Trump’s pre-election speeches, Meek Mill raps about the everyday struggles and trials and tribulations of the black man in america.
In other news, the Philly MC is about to embark on the Against All Odds tour alongside Yo Gotti which kicks off next month. Meek is also on the verge of dropping his brand new album, Wins and Losses. There is no official release date for the LP yet but we can assure you that it’ll be here before the year is over.
Watch the visual for “Young Black America” below.
