Meek flips the sample from the closing track on Jay Z's "The Blueprint."


In advance of his upcoming album Wins & Losses, Meek Mill has shared a new track called "YBA." The-Dream supplies the hook, which reveals the title to stand for "Young Black America." Using a very familiar sample from Jay-Z's "Blueprint (Momma Loves Me)," the closing track from Hov's 2001 classic of the same name, Meek shares some powerful words of the struggle Black people continue to face in this country. It's one extended verse that tells a number of stories about the system that works against young Black men and women, and finds Meek pulling from his own experiences as well as those he's witnessed.

Quotable Lyrics:
Yeah, I was on that corner
Tryna get my coins up
Coppers run up on us
And we turn to Jackie Joyner
White man kill a black man
They never report us
Black man kill a white man
They gon' start a war up
