After years of putting in work on the underground scene, Meek Mill has gone from going through real-life nightmares to living out his wildest dreams. That’s what a top-notch grind will do for you. A braided-down Meek Milly stepped on the scene with the hunger in his voice and hasn’t stopped building momentum, almost single handedly putting Philly back on the map after a lull in the production of certified stars from The City of Brotherly Love. T.I. saw the talent, but it was ultimately Rick Ross who won out on the prized recruit.

The Philly rapper hasn’t let the Bawse or his city down putting out a string of well-accepted projects including the gritty Flamerz mixtapes and the coveted Dreamchasers series. His debut album Dreams And Nightmares was no slouch either, putting the MMG artist in even more demand. Meek’s list of hits is pretty thick with his summer jam “Levels” serving as a recent example of the rap star’s ability to turn a song into a movement.

With his long-awaited Dreamchasers 3 project just days away, we compiled a list of the toughest tracks from Meek’s mixtape catalog. Obvious entries include undeniable hits like “Ima Boss” and “Rose Red” but we also unearthed some under-appreciated gems. Catch up. --Written by Dan Jackson, C. Vernon Coleman And Eric Diep
