Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill is currently gearing up to drop his long-awaited debut album this year and has revealed its title will be Dreams & Nightmares.
While mum on the details, Meek said the LP would tentatively hit stores in the summer.
"We out in L.A., Grammy weekend. On our way to Club Colony to do our thing. MMG we in the building. You already know man. I ain't get no Grammy's this year, but next year it's gonna be a wrap. Wrap city," Meek said in an interview, "dropping my album in 2012. This summer, Dreams & Nightmares. Wrap city. They don't give it to me I'm gonna take it. That's how we ride. Feel me? Cause we want it all. Young n*ggas fromt the ghetto getting money." (Maybach Music Blog)
Last year, "King of the South" rapper T.I. talked about trying to sign Meek.
Unfortunately Mill's Grand Hustle signing fell through due to T.I.'s run-ins with the law. "After my two hiatuses I was put in a position where I couldn't really make moves on Meek as quick as he may have wanted to," T.I. told Billboard.com's The Juice. "I never been one want to hold anyone back or to slow down the success of anybody. I'm the first to try to enhance what you have and if I can't make it better than I shouldn't be a part of it."

Prior to the "King of the South" recently returning home from an 11-month jail bid for a probation violation, Meek said he would save his "I'ma Boss" anthem remix for Tip.
"If I hold the 'I'ma Boss' remix long enough I might throw Tip on that, have him get out to the hottest song of the year," Meek said in an interview. "He ain't have no problem looking out for me and I don't have no problem doing it for him." In 2008, rumors sprung up that T.I. had signed Meek to his label Grand Hustle, but the co-sign never amounted to an ink stain. Although it's unclear as to why the deal never materialized, Meek says he still salutes the Atlanta giant. "I talked to Tip even when I was with Maybach, he already know my mind frame because me and Tip ended up becoming good friends later on down the line just hanging out with each other." (VIBE)
In mid-November, Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross expressed the importance of a strong Meek Mill debut.
"That's what the focus is: making sure it's classic. And I'm really excited and proud that the homey is taking his time to go to that next level," Ross said. "Of course he's the hardest new artist in the game -- we know that, hands down. Of course he can capitalize right now and we know that, that's the obvious. But what's not, is his debut album will be a classic." (MTV)
