The title of Meek Mill's forthcoming third full-length studio album will be Wins & Losses, according to his label boss Rick Ross.
"I love the name of Meek's new album, 'Wins and Losses,'" Rozay told his Snapchat audience late Wednesday (May 24) evening. "Cause that's what it's bout, nigga. Wins and losses. You just gotta add up the more wins—you gon lose—but win!"
Given the ebb and flow of Meek's career since the Philly native released his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, in June of 2015, the only title more appropriate than Wins & Losses would simply be Losses.
From starting beef with Drake because he mistakenly thought he dissed him to his lame excuse for not responding to Drake's "Back to Back" to degrading a homeless man on social media, the past 24 months have not been kind to Meek Mill. And that's without getting into his relationship with Nicki Minaj falling apart in front of the entire world social media or his infamous trip and fall down the stairs of his mother's house.
Ultimately, though, the only thing that really matters is the music.
Two years ago, Meek's ill-conceived Twitter attack on Drake changed the narrative in less than 30 days from "Meek Mill is Now Hip-Hop’s 3rd Best Selling Rapper of 2015" to "We All Agree Meek Mill Lost His Beef With Drake After “Wanna Know” Right?" While it will be hard for Meek to ever fully remove that stain from his career—just like Drake will never be able to completely scrub away the ghostwriting association—releasing a quality body of work can once again change the narrative.
Until then, for his sake, I hope Meek stays away from social media. That alone would be a win.
