Meek Mill Speaks on Hurricane Sandy’s Impact on East Coast, His Album Release

Hip-hop fanseagerly anticipated the release of Meek Mill’s debut album, but when Hurricane Sandy landed along the East Coast, the Philadelphia rapper wasn’t focused on his sales. In a statement released Friday (November 2), Meek said he was worried about his family instead. Still, despite the setback, the MMG lyricist is projected to sell nearly 200,000 copies of Dreams and Nightmares.

“This storm has been crazy,” Meek said. “This is my first release, and I’m supposed to be so happy for it. But the same day my album came out, I was more worried about how my family was holding out and a tree falling on my house.”

“My focus wasn’t on stores being closed,” he added. “I had a packed house, filled with my family, making sure they were good during this storm.”
