"Kendrick You're Next"
Between the years of 2010 and 2014, Meek Mill went through a lot both professionally and personally. In 2011 he had several extremely successful singles including the charting remix for "I'm A Boss" and the breakout single from his Dreamchasers mixtape "House Party. Then in 2012 he was signed to a management deal with ROC Nation and released Dreamchasers 2 and his debut studio album Dreams & Nightmares, which peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. With these two releases, Meek effectively took control of the game and had the attention of the world as everyone was waiting for his next move.
But by 2013, things started to take a turn negative turn as the rapper continued to violate his probation, from a charge stemming from an encounter with police in 2008 that resulted in his conviction, imprisonment and a five-year parole agreement. He also began beefing with rappers heavily, with his spat with Cassidy Larinsy, the veteran rapper from Philidelphia, hogging most of the headlines that year. Then in 2014, due to a combination of failure to effectively report travel to his probation officers, death threats made to the Assistant District Attorney and more, Meek Mill's parole was revoked and he spent six months in prison.
However, that didn't stop the rapper from claiming what he felt was rightfully his, and that's why "Kendrick You're Next" (Cassidy Diss) is the first entry on the list. It takes a special kind of crazy to completely disregard all legal trouble you currently have just to go after a rapper who says they can fade you. Again, that "by any means" mentality that Meek Mill embodies is a big part of what makes him great. For this record to have been done so early in his career, it would seem hard to believe, but it's not. No disrespect to Cassidy, but Meek did his thing n this and this song really represents a large r theme within Meek's career. That being, put me toe to toe and I can defeat the best of them.
