Jay-Z and Meek Mill

Hip-Hop Rumors: Hot Or Not? What Does Jay-Z Think About Meek Mill's New Album?

Meek Mill’s highly anticipated new album, Dreams and Nightmares, drops on October 30, and if you let him tell him, he has an “Illmatic, a Hard Knock Life, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ type of album.” The rising MMG artist has aimed high for his debut LP, and he may have hit his mark. Meek recently played his new album for Jay-Z, and according to Meek, Hov gave him the thumbs up. Meek instagram’ed the photo above along with the following caption:

“Letting #hov & @_youngchris listen 2 #dreamsandnightmares wen hov tell ya shit hot….it’s hot!”

Are you looking forward to Meek’s new album?

  • Keisha Mzlucious

    ok jay-z is a person…..he’s not christ himself….if he disapproves would meek shelve his album ??

    • Beast

      Don’t tell Jay that.. he thinks he’s the second coming.

    • bigfoot2011

      Jay z also told bleak his album was hot.

      • Said albums won gold plaques…

      • Sean Lee Walthour

        indeed!

      • Celz

        Rappers would literally kill to move Bleek numbers today.

      • bigfoot2011

        Bleak would kill to sell those numbers today too. Times have changed. when bleak was going gold with all that promotion, Shaq was going platinum. Those were the glory days that everyone went plat

      • Celz

        Bleek was only going Gold because he had limited depth. He actually has his own swag set trends and was hella fresh. If he was out today he would eat all these random punchline and multi pattern rappers. Bleek was competing against Fab and Jada Kiss where your punchlines and multis had to still have some sort of a theme not just I fuck.bitches, smoke weed, and pay strippers bullshit.

    • Sean Lee Walthour

      so Christ wasnt/isnt a “person” ? woah. get a grip lol

    • Celz

      Yea Jay just has more number one albums than anyone besides the Beatles. His word carries some weight.

  • Guillaume Pilon

    jay z think hes in 96 again ?

    jay z best 5 doa

  • Bumpy Johnson

    just coz jayz got money dont make him a talent or good music scout….get some approval from KRS 1, NAs,Rakim, Scarface and Ice Cube and im guaranteeing you ill buy that album

    • MiiUziWeighsATon

      Lmao…who said they were talent scouts either…I’m just saying….

      • He respects the opinion of them more?

      • Bumpy Johnson

        yes exactly.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        i feel you lol..but what i was trying to say if they can vouch for him id mos def cop it coz i highly respect their opinion …Jay z likes kanye’s new stuff that to me sounds like trash…i cant believe i once thought Kanye gone save hip hop back when he released “through the wire” “slow jams” ” we major feat. nas” and saved us hip hop fans from Nelly…damn times have changed for real.

      • CaliTransplant

        I feel you. Kanye has been trash as of lately. I hate his lyrics now. Time to regroup, get back on your producer shit and make relevant bangers like he used to. Those songs you just described are all bangers that will be around forever. ‘Clique’ will not. ‘Cold,’ which the beat was kinda tight, will not be either. He’s made it and there’s now nothing new to talk about besides Kim’s trashy ass. Yuck, daddy!

      • johnblacksad

        Do you inlude My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in that trash as well? Please don’t… or if you do, get off that molly quick!
        And this is coming from someones whose top 10 includes Sean Price, Styles P, Freeway, Scarface & Bumpy Knuckles!

      • Weedras

        Was about to say the same damn thing… he mentioned Nas in there no doubt Esco is a superb individual talent but where’s Brave Hearts? where’s Quan….

      • johnblacksad

        where’s Horse? he bodied errbody on that Oochie Wally!

      • MADNEWYORKER914

        Appaerently you ain’t saying shit!!!

    • Swaggout

      Interesting… NONE OF THE NAMES YOU MENTIONED ARE “TALENT OR GOOD MUSIC SCOUTS”: KRS 1, NAs,Rakim, Scarface and Ice Cube???

      EXCEPT JAY-Z!!!! In fact, one of Jay-Z’s strengths is that he is a talent AND good music scout!!!!

    • Lyve Wire

      KRS 1, NAs,Rakim, Scarface and Ice Cube???
      //
      while i enjoy all of their music, especially scarfaces, who have either of them brought to the game? dont tell me who they were/are affiliated with. tell me who they’ve found, and did everything in their power to make sure they were sucessful….
      //
      some ppl will do/say anything to discredit jay.. sad

      • M.A.T.H.

        I would respect Jay’s opinion about music for hit potential, but for artistic value I would value the other four guys opinion more if I’m trying to cover all bases. Now lets hope Meek lives up to the pressure he’s put on himself about this album, same for Jay Electronica who actually has the backing I just described.

      • Celz

        If you say Jay has no artistic value then you must only listen to the radio lol.. Check out Meet the Parents then come back,

    • Nemesis_Enforcer

      Nas is the absolute WORSE judge of talent and beats specifically. That discredited your whole statement lol.

    • BulldogCG

      scarface may have had someting to do with Ludacris over at Def Jam south if i remember right, but you point is well taken.

    • Sean Lee Walthour

      i agree. However, NAS co-signed him as well, plus he’s on Meek’s album

    • johnblacksad

      damn… ninjaz still stuck on hatin on Hov… sh!t’s only half-funny… you know you deserve a shaq face for that! I believe Jay knows his way around the music industry… just my opinion

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    im still downloading it not buying it, and keeping the good songs, the whack ones are always there with this nigga. Real talk, you aint on a J Cole, Jay, Outkast level where i download it and cop it from bestbuy!!!!

    • KingChandler

      Co-sign all the way on that, those “Use To Be” type joints are the keepers, I’m good with the songs about poppin bottles and stuntin’ on these haters and hoes. Keep the dope concepts, after you’ve made ONE song about stuntin’ and how much dough you have the fans understand that shit and don’t need you to clarify it on 20 more tracks when there’s real shit goin’ on that you could be talkin’ about.

    • lol……u jus say j.cole?

      • Weedras

        i think he’s referring to the fact that he bought and download J.Cole’s album…

  • Why do these new artists always try and compare the album to a classic? I mean, Illmatic & Get Rich Or Die tryin aren’t even alike in any possible way other than it was both of the artist first releases and they both came from Queen’s. Meek Mill might be the hot commodity of the minute, but it won’t last. What’s Jay-Z going to tell the man, your album is trash to his face?

  • NEWSKULL

    It is not coming from the horse mouth… so i can’t call it.. Maybe Jay was just being polite

  • what is jayz his lord?

  • 4chainz

  • daveofthematthews

    The only thing that will sell me that album is the music itself if i like it i will buy it if not i wont and the end of the day Jay-Z has his opinion just like every other human would do in the world, in my own opinion Jay is overrated so why would i hold his opinion in a higher regard than my own? sounds to me as if Meek is lacking in self belief. either way i wish him luck as i do everyone else.

    • Weedras

      the dude is just asking for the approval of an artists years before him… it’s kinda like writing your thesis then asking a professor to look over for you and give an opinion… simple as that.. it doesn’t mean you lack self esteem or belief… Jay coulda said he aint feelin it and dude still would be pushing his music…

  • brotha_man

    If Jay-z says it, it must be true (Dame Dash Voice)

  • YEAH I SAID IT!

    HOW AND WHY Y’ALL CUT YA CHRIS OUT THE PICTURE? THAT’S STRAIGHT UP SUCKA SH!T

  • Reblogged this on The Music Business Revisionist.

  • ladynamor

    A real classic artist would not care what Shawn thought about their CD.

  • JAYZ WILL ALWAYS RIDE W THE FREEMASONS —HE IS A SELLOUT

  • DID HOV SAY IT WAS HOT?????? NOOOOOOOO

  • WHAT IS WRONG W MEEKS EYES? HE IS CROSSEDEYED OR SUMTHIN?

  • ant662

    why is everytime meek mill takes a picture he looks like a deer in headlights. 00

  • Oknas

    Of course Jay gonna say it’s hot, he manages him. duh lol. Would jay have the same opinion if the same album was comin out on young money?

    • nobodyspecial

      SOMEBODY has a brain wit memory … as i recall Meek shittyed on Rocnation Management … then all of a sudden … you see Meek and Jay Together …This is Business it ain’t personal.

  • Alf Capone

    of course said it was hot…………..what did u expect him to say………the nigga couldnt say he didnt like it even if he didnt like it……….for the record i think its hot too…..hot garbage

  • If listening to a guy monotone yell lyrics in a little kid voice is what Jay is into, then I can see how he liked this album.

  • MADNEWYORKER914

    The nigga got a thumbs up from one the nastiest cats to bless the mic, so you clowns need to fall back!!!

  • Darren Myt Collins

    i hope he changes his tone of voice on some songs on this album…I can’t take him with that high pitch yelling voice he got for a WHOLE ALBUM….

  • he ain’t gonna tell u
    its trash duh meek

  • MEEK MILL DO YA THANG WHETHER YOU SELL OR NOT YOU WORKED HARD BRUH FROM THE STREETS TO THE COUPES AND THE JEEPS !!!

  • he probably said the same to amil…..

  • GottaBeGooz

    not checking for it in the least. no love for any of the garbage put out by MMG & YMCMB.

  • Slaughtr

    FIRST OF ALL TO MANY OF YALL NIGGAZ BITING JAY’S DICK HEAD.WHEN WILL NIGGAS START RELYING ON TALENT INSTEAD OF A OK FROM A NIGGA PEOPLE THINK IS GOD BECAUSE HE SOLD RECORDS. HOW MUCH YOU SELL MEANS NOTHING TO ME AND NO I’M NOT A JAY FAN. AS PRESIDENT OF DEF JAM HE SMASHED EVERYBODY’S CARREER EXCEPT WHO HE WANTED TO SHINE THEN AT THE ROC HE PUSHED HISSELF MORE THAN ANYBODY SO TO ME THAT EQUALS STENGY GREEDY NIGGA. NO HE ISN’T THE GOD OF HIP HOP SO IF YOU THINK HIS WORD CARRIES WEIGHT YOUR SADLY MISTAKEN. FOR ANY COMMENTS AFTER I POST THIS I YAWN ON NIGGA.

    • dat daude
