Meek Mill, who hasn’t released an album since 2021, has provided an explanation for why he’s not releasing the music.

The Philly MC tweeted a screenshot of a text message on Saturday (June 24)  from an unknown sender that read: “Man fuk them views numbers & critics & comments & opinions, drop it.”

Meek Mill captioned the screenshot: “If I ain’t drop music it’s a reason I’m handling the business … we not shinning shoes to look the famous and feel the biggest for a label … and I’m not selling my shit like it’s mid… the game watered down y’all overhyped everything now it’s a drought.”

Then he tweeted an update on what he’s currently cooking in the kitchen “I’m giving up 4 albums chilllllllll….” he wrote. “Switchie flow…. Ima crack the code seriously and say it b4 I do it lol.”

The second tweet is especially confusing because Meek previously announced two new albums, and the number appears to have doubled in only one week.

Meek announced on social media on Sunday (June 18) that he is now working on two different bodies of work. One tracklist will be a joint effort with rapper and singer Vory, the other is a more varied collaborative undertaking.

He tweeted: “This other album I got coming I can’t speak on (not the vory one) but it’s also gone be top tier rap album and a vibeeeee…. It’s a collab album from some Of your favorite artist on one super movie!!!!!!”

It is unclear what exactly he means by “collab album.” It could mean a lot of features on a solo record or a Dream Chasers Records equivalent to Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers series
