Last night (October 10), SOHH attended Warner Bros.’ private invite-only Meek Mill Dreams And Nightmares listening session which included appearances by some of entertainment’s biggest stars.
SOHH correspondent Amber McKyznie got up-close encounters with attendees Will Smith, Jay-Z and New York Giants star, wide receiver Victor Cruz.
“Warner Bros. held an intimate listening session for Meek Miill’s upcoming album, Dreams & Nightmares, at Manhattan’s Electric Lady Studios. With a crowd of less than 100 people, the music industry’s movers and shakers showed up to support the MMG prince’s new project. Among those were music and Hollywood heavyweights including Jay-Z, Will Smith, Rick Ross, Estelle, Wale and New York Giants player Victor Cruz.” (SOHH)
Meek also hopped on Twitter last night to thank Jay-Z and Will Smith for coming through.
“S/o #hov & #willsmith stopped by my listening party today! They can smell legendary sh*t!,” he tweeted October 10th. (Meek Mill’s Twitter)
Back in May, Mill talked about joining Jay’s Roc Nation management.
“This theory is that I’m an underground rapper and I come from the street,” he explained in an interview. “There’s parts of the game that I can’t reach with my management and so we combined with them and made things work out to the point where they could bring things to the table that we need,” explained Mill, noting that there weren’t any other management deals in the works. “They’re taking it to the next level. I’m not looking for anything. Everything else falls on me.” (Billboard)
Last winter, Meek promised his debut would be worth the wait.
“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)
