The Source Magazine is repping the streets in its latest print issue featuring Meek Mill on the cover. On the verge of his highly anticipated MMG/Warner Bros. debut Dreams and Nightmares, the Philly rapper gives the August/September Back-to-School issue – available on-stands August 7th – the first in-depth look into his rise to success, his personal life, and his music.
In “Ambitions Of A Rider,” on page 69, Meek promises his album will speak to everyone. “It’s all about me thinking what type of first album am I gonna present to the people. [I got] something for the streets, the clubs, storytelling, soulful songs, deep songs.” The story (which will have an extended version on thesource.com and exclusive quotes pushed through The Source’s social media accounts) also addresses the recent bottle-throwing club incident that Meek has, until now, been quiet about. “I was there, and sh*t got real. I had nothing to do with it. I don’t have a problem with Drake..It was a lot of unknown guys throwing bottles.”
The issue also pays homage to Hip-Hop’s Hollywood stars of yesterday, today and tomorrow. “Walk Of Fame” on page 48 is the magazine’s first “Hip-Hop Hollywood Hot List,” with special tributes to Hip-Hop A-listers such as Will Smith, Queen Latifah and Ice Cube, among others. Also in the magazine are full features on the TDE collective with interviews from Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, and a profile on Epic’s newest priority, Ca$h Out.
