The Philadelphia rapper teased the project Thursday at the 2018 Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players event in NYC. Meek, who was there to accept the first-ever Impact Award, didn’t reveal any details about his much-anticipated fourth studio album, but suggested it would arrive sometime next month.
“My album coming soon,” he said on the Power Players red carpet. “It’s coming real soon, like in a matter of weeks, to be truthful. Yeah, it’s on the way.”
Though he’s yet to reveal a drop date or title, Meek has already provided a little taste of his forthcoming effort. During a recent stop in Washington, D.C., the rapper shared a never-before-heard cut that references Colin Kaepernick.
“They won’t lynch him by hanging from a tree/They lynch his bank account,” Meek raps on the track, according to Page Six. “They told Kap to stand up if you want to play for a team/And most of his teammates said the same thing […] 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.”
