Heavy is the heart on Meek Mill's 'Wins & Losses'

It's been two years since the release of Meek Mill's sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, a project so embroiled in an onslaught of career-defining feuds that chances of a comeback for the Philly-bred spitter seemed like an age-old Hip Hop façade.

However, Mill returns with a proper studio album, in the form of Wins & Losses, a reflective tale of someone who is still growing as an emcee, artist, and more importantly, a human being, flaws and all. Similar to his previous work, and as the title suggests, Mill runs through his personal victories, though his inner turmoil is the key element that constantly shapes the album at hand. "Heavy Heart," "1942 Flows," and "Young Black America," display Meek Mill's conflict with the world within and beyond Philadelphia. Wins is an inspired effort that his longtime fans will appreciate without a doubt despite a few filler cuts that keep the album from being a true 2017 heavyweight.

Now available to stream and purchase, Wins & Losses follows 2016's DC4, and this summer's Meekend Music and Meekend Music II.
