Meek Mill shares some insight on his Twitter Q&A.

Meek Mill is not even a week removed from the release of his first-post prison album, CHAMPIONSHIPS, but he might not be over just yet. During a fan Q&A session on Twitter, Meek Mill hinted that another project could be on the way before the end of the year.

"You think you can hit us with another real me mixtape. The streets been waiting," a fan wrote to Meek Mill on Twitter. Meek's mixtape run is a staple among his day-one fans. Clearly, Meek's fully aware that the streets been missing him and he hinted that a new project could drop in a matter of weeks. "How bout I just drop another album before the year over!" He wrote to the fan.

In all honesty, it seems a bit unrealistic that we get a new album from Meek Mill before the end of 2018, but we could be hopeful. Despite hinting at the release of a CHAMPIONSHIPS follow-uphe also revealed that the album's intro will be the next music video off of the project. The rapper recently shared a snippet of the music video on Instagram.

Meek also revealed the reason why he decided to freestyle on Drake's "Back to Back" diss track, saying, "I still had a lil problem wit that beat drake good but that beat used to get on my nerves when I heard it so it had to give me a rumble."

Additionally, Meek also dubbed Tierra Whack as his favorite new rapper.
