The project, which dropped today (Nov. 30), is being widely praised by fans, with many noting how it is a clear contender to be considered the rapper's most impressive release to date.
With guest features from Drake, Rick Ross, Cardi B, Kodak Black, Ella Mai and more, there is no shortage of material to discuss and quality songs to run through.
From Jay-Z breaking his Twitter hiatus to clarify his line on "What's Free" was NOT a diss to Kanye West, to his collaboration with Drake officially marking their beef is long behind them, to Meek weaving his prison reform efforts into his music; the project showcases the culmination of everything that transpired between today and the release of his 2017 effort, Wins & Losses.
Meek himself has remained humble while promoting the project, writing on Twitter, "This may go unnoticed lol but my new album out right now #championships on all platforms check it out. I woke up feeling good seeing all good feedback."
If anything, we'd say his tweet may have "gone unnoticed" because the timeline is flooded with people breaking down and celebrating the project... Congrats Meek!

Meek sounds so emboldened by his story, man. Not that he wasn’t before, but this album has such a powerful combo of anger from what he’s been through, pride from making it out, and responsibility to tell the stories of others. There’s some filler but the good shit is wow— William Ketchum III (@WEKetchum) November 30, 2018

Meek Mill’s trajectory the past five years has been so interesting to me; and honestly, it’s an amazing story.— Pierce Simpson (@PierceSimpson) November 30, 2018
Took a major L, a lot of which was self-inflicted during his beef with Drake. Could’ve folded but didn’t. Learned from it.
Wait...Am I crazy or is this not about Kanye? He’s saying don’t pit him and Kanye, two black men, against one another — and then the rest could maybe be about Trump/Melania? pic.twitter.com/1L1UJO3urX— ItsTheReal (@itsthereal) November 30, 2018

Meek made the best 180 ever! We kinda hated this guy a couple years ago, this album is so much growth. It’s not full of watches & sex with women. You hear the pain, uplifting the community & the truth about the prison system. We don’t get to see real street rappers change anymore— LEGEND (@ChriStylezz) November 30, 2018
Meek Mill's new album is flames, but I can't help but giggle at the internet being like, "THAT NEW JAY-Z VERSE THO." The King's throne is forever secured.— kathy iandoli (@kath3000) November 30, 2018
