  MUSIC REVIEW

Philadelphia born MC Meek Mill opens “Dream Chasers 2” (released May seventh, a day after his 25th birthday) with the aide of Mike Tyson. Yes, that Mike Tyson.

“I’m the best ever. I’m Sonny Liston. I’m Jack Dempsey. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable. I want your heart. I wanna eat his children.” Tyson proclaimed to Lennox Lewis after knocking out Lou Savarese in only thirty-eight seconds back in 2000.

Meek Mill aims to knock you out with his most recent mix tape, and he takes his time with it. He has turned his music into a sweet science; expertly keeping you attached and enthralled by the rhymes he weaves throughout his eleventh mix tape in just six years. He bursts out of the gates like a caged animal, attacking the intro over a chorus of angelic back up singers. “Right back like I never left” he announces with authority. With his prolific output one can’t help but notice he never left and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere anytime soon. Each line oozes with rough traces of his past, evidence of his lavish present and forecasts of his potentially legendary future.

Meek Mill straps you in for more than a standard, one sound album. He mixes raw anger and power with playfulness and an affinity for rhymes that will stay in your head for days after you first hear them. His voice slices through beats like a bullet through a hot night. Equally as impressive as his lyrics is the mix on the album. On “Amen” he effortlessly flows over an infectious piano loop that makes you feel like you are a part of his crew and getting ready for an epic night out. Meek Mill has plenty more nights out ahead of him, but he doesn’t only paint a picture of his high rolling lifestyle. He gives you a hauntingly clear view of the strife he rose from in Philadelphia.

“The Meek shall inherit the earth, so imma’ own this bitch until I’m buried in dirt. I only rode with niggas that would carry me to my hearse. Blesses for my grandma, she carry me to that church.” He flows with reverence and respect for the past that made him the rising star he is today. On “Used to Be” he gives you the rawest track on the album, and the most moving, with his vulnerability on full display. “Bein’ broke so I started sellin’ coke. Times got hard with sellin’ soap. Skimmin’ just like the preacher in church, he’s sellin’ hope.” The lyrics grind against a sedate beat that lets you feel his heart pumping. You’re taken for a swirling ride into his soul as backup vocals swing between the left and right channels. He continually displays his versatility

E-40 PREPARES TO RELEASE 3 NEW ALBUMS MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2012 “THE BLOCK BROCHURE WELCOME TO THE SOIL 1, 2 & 3” Albums Contain All-Star Features Including 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Raheem DeVaughn, Gangsta Boo, Snoop Dogg, Tech N9ne, Kendrick Lamar, Droop-E, Katt Williams, T-Pain, Too $hort & More Video for Hit Single “FUNCTION” Featuring YG, IamSu! and Problem Drops Today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsDyZNIkO6Q

VALLEJO, CA (March 6, 2012) – You know you’ve got a hit when radio stations across the country are playing your record non-stop. Just a little less than a month ago E-40 released his first single “Function” featuring YG, IamSu! and Problem. Flattering radio support combined with a viral functioning frenzy amongst both media outlets and fans all indicate signs of a reliable formula of success for the three upcoming E-40 albums. Monday, March 26, 2012 marks the triple threat release date of The Block Brochure Welcome To The Soil 1, 2 & 3. The more than highly anticipated albums feature Hip-Hop and R&B favorites such as Juicy J, 2 Chainz, B-Legit, KoKane, T-Pain, Raheem DeVaughn, Gangsta Boo, Droop-E, Snoop Dogg, C-Ballin, Turf Talk, Kurupt, Daz, C-Bo, Katt Williams, T.H.H., Brotha Lynch Hung, Andre Nickatina, Kendrick Lamar, Mistah F.A.B., Cousin Fik, The Jacka, The Hieroglyphics, Too $hort and a smorgasbord of musical heat.

Just this time last year “My Shit Bang,” the first single from E-40’s last effort Revenue Retrievin: Graveyard Shift, received over 3 million views within 72 hours after its release. This year’s first single “Function” will ignite excited anticipation amongst viewers and listeners for the release of E-40’s unprecedented Block Brochures. For some, it may seems as though E-40 just released an album a few months ago, that’s because he has consistently remained relevant from viral content to packed out live shows, headlining the Paid Dues Festival and performing at over 50 concerts that kicked off internationally in Oslo and Bodo, Norway, overseas and continuing throughout United States. He’s also been featured on the most recent albums of Baby Bash, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Travis Barker, Tech N9ne and The Game. Respectfully so, artists Drake, Rick Ross and Bow Wow have all requested special guest appearances with E-40 when visiting the Bay Area. The seasoned veteran knows a thing or two when it comes to keeping his music fresh and engaging fans of all ages. With 24 years of recording experience, over 5 million records sold and multiple hit singles from “Tell Me When To Go” featuring Keak Da Sneak to “Bitch” featuring 50 Cent and Too $hort, the “Ballatician” makes it his business to grant nothing less than solid collections of music to his loyal fans while gaining respect and love from new listeners.

Kicking off to a grand start, today E-40 releases his “Function” video. Fans will be pleasantly surprised to view a few double take elements incorporated in the visual rendition, in addition to the camaraderie projected between E-40 and his west coast riders. “I got this thang mane. Laid the groundwork and drew the blueprint for the independent music label entrepreneur years ago. The numbers prove my old school tactics make new school dollars. For the past two years they thought it was crazy for me to release two albums at the same time just like we did back in the day. Again, I proved them wrong. This year we up the ante and you know what they say, three times is a charm. Let’s face it, no matter who you are or where you’re from we’re all out here just trying to Function,” says E-40, Ambassador of the Bay.
