Meek Mill Announces His Upcoming Surprise Album, Ruins Surprise

Meek Mill has a new project on the way.
In an interview with The New York Post on Monday, the Meek Mill revealed the follow-up to his 2017 album Wins & Losses would be a surprise album and won’t have an announced release date… but he announced the surprise.
“I’m not actually giving out a release date, it’s a surprise album,” he said.
Meek probably should have just taken a cue from the originator of this surprise-album-drop thing, Beyoncé, and just dropped the album… as an actual surprise.
Regardless, the game is still looking forward to another Meek release.
Mill also revealed that one of the songs on the album will contain references to athlete and activist Colin Kaepernick. He previewed some of the lyrics: “They told Kap to stand up if you want to play for a team, and most of his teammates said the same thing,” and, “Back in the ’30s you would be killed if you kneeled. They won’t kill you now, they just take you out of the deal.”
Mill also revealed that he’s open to speaking with Donald Trump, saying, “I’m always open to talk to the president and make change. Everyone I was in prison with is encouraging me to go and take the sacrifice — even if you get crucified in the media.”
The artist was released from prison in April following an arrest on probation violations. He had been sentenced to several years in prison for violating probation on a nearly decade-old gun and drug case.
