20 of the Best Lyrics From Meek Mill’s ‘DC4′ Mixtape
Last night, after multiple false starts and premature announcements, Meek Mill's long-awaited mixtape, DC4, dropped. The fourth installment in his Dreamchasers series is the first full-length project he's released since his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, dropped last year.
The arrival of DC4 comes with much intrigue and suspense surrounding it, given the ongoing cold war between Meek and Drake, in addition to more recent bad blood with The Game and fellow Philly native, Beanie Sigel. Not to mention the fact that Meek has been all but musically silent since releasing the second installment of his 4/4 series in January, so new work from one of the more talented rappers currently approaching their prime is never a bad thing.
Although the Philly native is undoubtedly the headliner of the show on this tape, he also made sure to add even more star power in the form of his industry friends and allies. Featuring guest appearances from wifey Nicky Minaj, Young Thug, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert, Tory Lanez, Pusha T, deceased former protege Lil Snupe and more, DC4 is looking like one of the more eventful rap releases of 2016. If you were one of the naysayers to count out the current King of Philly, Meek's performance on DC4 may force you to retract those statements or slander, as it's one of the finer efforts of the young rapper's career. After giving each track a focused listen, XXL highlights 20 of the hottest lyrics that will get some heavy replay value.
"I got God watchin' over me from courtside ballin' like I'm Jordan 'cause I'm blessed up/And niggas want me gone but I'm still alive wake up every morning feelin' blessed up/Pull up in that holy Ghost cause I'm blessed up/I'ma do the most cause I'm blessed up/Had to scoop my niggas out the hood now we all eatin' good like we should cause we blessed up"

"And you know like I know/I was your side nigga, you was my side ho/He broke you in, I'm the one broke you out though/'Cause you got that D and you turned into El Chapo/Run from that nigga if he drive by your house though/This that Givenchy, that new Saint Laurent flow/This that go cash out that G65 flow/I like you, you hit the lotto" -- Meek Mill
"She know I been 'bout it, I'm on my way up/My chick a Barbie, no weave and no makeup/Hang with the trappers, don't be with no haters/My city gon' tell you that we on some paper/Theolonius capers when I'm in that Wraith/I'm feelin' like Meechie or three ATL/Purp got me leanin' like I on a rail/Mixing that Birk with that new YSL" -- Meek Mill

"They say he gon' pull through and he gettin' charged too/Lawyer came to see him said he need like 80 large too/Got him in the County, Tony people's 'hind them walls too/And they say his little cousin crippin', bangin' hard too/And Paulie killed his favorite little cousin back on part two/And he can't wait to fall through/Friday they calling yard too/And Paulie on crutches took the screw up out the handles scrape that bitch 'til it got sharp too/To be continued"
