Meek Mill Reacts to Over Two Million Downloads of Dreamchasers 2 Mixtape, Talks New Album

Meek Mill did it again. Last year, the 2011 XXL Freshman shook up the rap game, dropping the DJ Drama-hosted Dreamchasers mixtape, featuring summer anthems like “I’ma Boss” with Rick Ross and “House Party.”

Last week, the MMG artist released the highly anticipated sequel, Dreamchasers 2, to an overwhelming response from fans that ultimately crashed the popular mixtape website, with over 200,000 downloads in the first few hours. Now, just a week after its release, Dreamchasers 2 stands at nearly 2,700,000 downloads.

“2 million downloads in a day or two? I’m just blessed,” Meek told MTV this past weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where he and his MMG family performed. “I expected to do 300,000 to 400,000 then took it over to two million.”

While the Philly MC is enjoying the success of his new tape, fans can look forward to hearing more new music very soon.  MMG’s compilation, Self Made, Vol. 2, is scheduled for release on June 26, followed by Meek’s upcoming debut album, Dreams & Nightmares, set to hit stores August 28.

At the show, Meek went on to talk to about what fans can expect from his new project, “[On] Dreams and Nightmares you can expect quality music and you’re gonna get the real me,” he said. “It ain’t gonna be all over the place like the mixtapes. This album I’ma make it connect, I’ma try to perfect my craft a little more; make sure the flows touch the beats a little better, make sure the beasts sound clearer. You know Frenchie gonna be on there, you know Rozay gonna be on there, but some of the features are gonna be a surprise.”—Shamecca Harris

    J.Cole is gonna be on it. If Meek flows better and the beats are cleaner, this is going to be good. More real.

          If you really knew much about the game as u your obviously pretending to , you would understand that album sales are not what they used to be, and no1 today is expecting to sell crazy numbers … Artist make more off shows then actual sales today, thats why they dont care about giving away free music… The system is this … Create a buzz for your songs > Do shows > Get Paid > Realease an Album … Personally I think you niggas should be happy an actual lyricist and doing 2 million downloads … you could have ya boy Soulja Boy doin those numbers …smh , n then what ..?
