As Dallas Martin, Atlantic’s senior VP of A&R, explained in an extensive interview with Complex last week, the new Meek album was adown to the wireaffair. “The main thing with him when he got out, I wanted him to be able to link with all the biggest producers in the game,” Martin told Eric Diep. “We went down to Atlanta and for like two weeks I just had all the big producers come through and sit with him, play beats, and just let him just rock out.

As for the name, Martin said it’s again the result of a feeling both he and Meek had during the sessions. It’s also, of course, a nod to a previous Meek title. “You know everything we went through from the past three years,” Martin said. “Just the ups and downs. Così, we felt like he was in a great space. I felt like he got a second chance at life, and we really felt like we was in championship mode.

Well known for his epic introductions, this one samples Phil Collins‘ legendary ‘In The Air Tonight’, with Meek framing what he sets out to achieve across his fourth studio album.

Meek Mill’s Championships arrived on November 30th. Since then, the rapper has detailed a 16-city U.S. tour scheduled to begin in February 2019; the jaunt marks Meek Mill’s first since his release from prison earlier this year.
