Last week, Meek Mill confirmed the release of his new album, Championships. Now, he’s dropped two new songs to get fans even more hyped: “Oodles o’ Noodles Babies” and “Uptown Vibes.”
Meek looks back on his childhood on “Oodles o’ Noodles Babies,” whose title refers to an old Top Ramen brand of instant noodles. “I used to wish that my daddy was livin’, I had a dream that I seen him as ghost / I used to act up when I went to school / Thought it was cool, but I really was hurt,” he raps.
He also surveys his more recent struggles—“Got a black judge tryna tear me down / All this jail time probably wear me down”—and even gets in a jab at Kanye West, who infamously claimed a few months back that slavery was a choice.
The Philly rapper is more ebullient on “Uptown Vibes,” praising “spicy mamis” and his “diamonds [of] different color” alongside his guests: Fabolous and Puerto Rican artist Anuel AA.
Stream the songs below before Championships drops November 30.
