    As much as Championships is filled with nonchalant club/street anthems, it's also about healing. Tempered by both celebration and struggle, Championships shows the duality of Mill's world--one that still reflects on the past, but has made leaps towards his future--and that's perhaps the greatest win of them all.

    [An] urgent, wise and poignant fourth LP.

    Meek Mill has definitely earned his place as the people’s champion, and in turn has provided his best album to date.

    Mostly the record commits to what he does best: substantial rap with clear stakes and an uncommon sense of purpose. After a career marked too often by botched opportunities and wasted potential, Meek Mill has finally risen to the moment.

    While the Audemars-Piguet and Rolls-Royce Wraith have not disappeared from the equation and Meek Mill’s affinity for the finer things is still intact, his conscience is the crown jewel of Championships.

    The ultimate result is an inspired release that hearkens back to the Roc-a-Fella days of the mid-Aughts, full of diaristic writing, song-cry beats and ridiculous skills.

    A perplexingly bloated, often aimless album is both a head-scratcher and a true waste of potential.

The instrumentals were really enjoyable and I loved the beats as well. Where it gets interesting is when we look at his lyrics. He always has something important to say, and he expresses it well. This guy can flow to say the least and that is something that I love. The albums length was justified by the constant flow of bangers, and the features were great. He was even able to achieve the impossible, to coax a descent feature out of Cardi B. I have enjoyed Meek's previous works and this is no different. Keep it up bro. Expand

Definitely sounds like Meek is playing to his strengths here. Some of the features are a little weak and some of tracks are weak as stand alone songs but its a pretty enjoyable effort from meek, especially compared to his last album being weaker. Expand
