Philadelphia’s man-of-the-hour Meek Mill has released the cover art and tracklisting from his forthcoming debut Dreams And Nightmares. “A lot of people have been shying away from the real rapping and hip-hop,” said Meek on the motivation behind his first record. “I want to have a classic album, an Illmatic, [Vol.2…] Hard Knock Life, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ type, a hip-hop album.”

The album is led by the contentious 'Amen' featuring Drake which recently cracked the Top 10 on Billboard’s “Hip-Hop/R&B charts. Its follow-up, the Kirko Bangz-assisted 'Young & Getting’ It,' holds the #1 spot as the most added single at urban mainstream radio this week with spins lined-up in 43 stations across the country.

Dreams And Nightmares also features appearances from Rick Ross, Wale, Nas, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz, and Louie V. Production on the 14-track album is relegated to a slew of talented producers that balance out the album’s soundscape such as Jahlil Beats, Boi-1da, Key Wane, and Kane Beatz amongst others.

After years of navigating Philly’s trigger-happy rap circuit with mixtapes highlighting his street-savvy tales, clever wordplay, and distinctive voice, Meek Mill was picked up by Rick Ross in 2011 after catching the ear of the hip-hop heavyweight who was looking to form his own music label. A graduate of XXL’s 2011 “Freshman 10,” Meek contributed a pair of hits to the label’s compilation album, MMG Presents: Self Made, Vol. 1 : 'Tupac Back' and the anthemic 'Ima Boss' which attracted Jay-Z, Diddy, Birdman and Swizz Beatz for its remix. With 2011’s Dreamchasers heralded as one of the best mixtape of the year, Meek Mill released his follow-up Dreamchasers 2 in May of 2012 crashing several file sharing websites following over 3 million downloads and 6 million listens.
