Riding the wave of success from his current radio hit, "Amen," Philly-based rapper Meek Mill embarks on his first headlining tour in support of Dreams & Nightmares. After signing with Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group in early 2011, he has lent his signature bravado to collaborations with everyone from Waka Flocka Flame to Drake. Mill's virulent drawl stings like a scorpion in heat, precise in attack and replete with fervor. Often boasting a laundry list of material and social riches, his high-quality rhymes remain engaging and powerful. Equipped with a golden tongue and backed by his homiletic swagger, Mill continues to prove himself as one of contemporary rap's most promising stars.

Crunk and Disorderly: Rumors of rap beef with everyone from Chris Brown to Cassidy and even Philadelphia's assistant district attorney only serve to perpetuate Mill's hype.
