Meek Mill Keeps the Iron Hot with Migos Collab, “Contagious”
Can’t stop, won’t stop
Since the start of October 2016, Meek Mill has released four projects, including two albums that debuted in the top three on the Billboard 200. It’s been quite a run, especially in light of Meek’s turbulent 2015, but the Philly star doesn’t seem intent on letting up on the gas. Earlier this week, he dropped a loosie cut, “Team Rich,” and he’s followed that today with the unearthing of an archived Migos collaboration, “Contagious,” which you can listen to below.
Meek Mill and Migos absolutely makes sense for 2017, especially considering the Atlanta rap act experienced chart success of its own in January when Culture debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. But “Contagious,” which features production from Detroit standout and Big Sean affiliate Key Wane, can actually be traced back to 2014. Regardless, shades of the collaborators’ current brilliance remains in tact, as Meek, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset take turns assailing Key’s instrumental, toying with tempos and ad-libs on a track that probably would’ve done some damage had it been released at the time it was created.
In addition to finally unleashing “Contagious,” Meek dropped his contribution to the True to the Game soundtrack, “Team Rich,” on Thursday and appeared in the wild video for Carnage’s new single “Homie” on Friday. There’s also a snippet of a Timbaland and JAY-Z collaboration featuring Meek’s vocals floating around, but no signs of the final version of that track just yet. In the meantime, check out “Contagious” below.
