Jeezy dropped "Trap or Die 3" and Meek Mill did a surprise release of "Dreamchasers 4". One thing I know is music, and I have been a fan of hip hop since its inception back in the late '70s. While I was only a few years old then, I remember my brothers listening to Sugarhill Gang and Dolemite. Yep, believe it or not, he is also a very inspiring figure in hip hop.

Well, on Friday, my excitement was at its peak as I looked in my email box and saw the latest releases from Jeezy and Meek Mill. Now let me start off with Jeezy's "Trap or Die". The album was a step backwards for all of the Trap or Die fans. I have to say the album is not bad at all. Now there will be critics who say that he has lost it, but I think he is doing fine. He originally hit the scene back in 2005, so it's obvious that his style is going to be a little different then when he started. I would have to say that I think this album is one to add to the collections. With the single "All There" featuring Bankroll Fresh leading the way, I think it should at least move around 30,000 over the weekend.

Now lets get to the somewhat of the underdog. A lot of folks counted Meek Mill out because of the scathing diss from Drake and then the shots he got from The Game over the summer. But I have to say, if you are a Meek fan, you will be happy to know that the "DC4" release is classic Meek. The beats have the gutter sound, and Meek's high pitched but controlling voice spits heartfelt lyrics for all of his fans. I went from beginning to the end, and have to admit that I am impressed. I never thought he was finished. I simply thought that he should seriously focus on the music and leave the beefs alone. So I will also give this album a high recommendation for the fans. They are both available online now, and I am sure that there will be more to come from some of your faves just in time for the Christmas holidays.
