Meek Mill’s Debut Album ‘Dreams & Nightmares’ Release Date Moved To October 30th; Signs Deal With Puma

According to a recent press release, “Fans of Philadelphia’s Meek Mill will have to wait a little longer for his proper release. Originally slated for August 28th, his Dreams & Nightmares debut will launch on October 30th to focus on touring and to deliver a debut that can stand alongside the greats. On a visit to San Francisco’s WiLD 94.9, Meek revealed, “A lot of people have been shying away from the real rapping and hip-hop. When I come out with an album, I want to have a classic album, an Illmatic, [Vol.2…] Hard Knock Life, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ type, a hip-hop album.” MMG’s Rick Ross echoed the sentiments on a trip to Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” to promote his recent release: ‘He’s still putting the final touches on his debut making sure it’s a classic, and [that’s] most definitely what it will be.'”

PUMA has also announced that Meek will be the newest ambassador for the sport lifestyle brand. With a strong presence in music and MC culture, the recent partnership reinforces PUMA’s commitment to music talent. Through PUMA’s partnership with Meek, fans will have an opportunity to meet Meek at an exclusive meet-and-greet, and have the chance to party at an exclusive, to-be-announced concert event.”
