Shhh...don't tell Meek Mill this but no one ever yelled their way to the top. That hasn't stopped the Philly MC from trying, though. Mill raps with a high-pitched flow and a sense of urgency. He's akin to an Indy racer cranking up the speed as he approaches the final lap. It makes sense. As the only elite member of MMG without a commercial release, Mill can't afford to cruise. He's the team's most inventive lyricist, but a quick glance across his shoulder and he'll see some familiar faces (Stalley and Wale) in the rear-view mirror. Look for Mill to use that friendly competition as an extra drive to power himself through the finish line this year.
