Are Meek Mill's dreams really worth more than his money on his new album?

At first glance, the title of Meek Mill's new album seemed to be a sign of the music that was to come. Meek's been one of the most tirelessly grinding rappers in the game ever since he shout-rapped his way onto the Philly scene (and then onto Rick Ross' radar), and although he's obviously become wealthy off the music, you never see him out here chasing endorsements or sleepwalking through guest verses on pop songs. In theory, Dreams Worth More Than Money seems to perfectly encapsulate his mentality, but on paper, it's a different story.

Much like Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise, another make-or-break album that was billed as "serious" and/or "introspective," DWMTM's mentions of wealth far exceed those of every other topic it addresses (in Sean's case, he rapped about money 61 times, far more than the 18 times he talked family, or the 15 times he focused on bottle-popping). After a few listens, Meek's album's name seems like little more than a sly way to incorporate his Dreamchasers movement into another one of his titles-- And he didn't even include moneymaking anthem "Monster" on the album!

Obviously, we still think the album is dope, but here are fifteen instances that made us question the accuracy of the phrase "Dreams Worth More Than Money."
