Drake Says Meek Mill's Responsible For

Drake says Meek Mill's intro to "Dreams and Nightmares" is one of the best Rap moments of this generation.

Drake voiced his appreciation for Meek Mill's Dreams and Nightmares introductory cut in a Twitter post made yesterday (April 30).

In the Twitter update, Drake says Meek Mill's intro to "Dreams and Nightmares" is an important one. 

"Dreams and Nightmares Intro really one of the best rap moments of our generation," Drake says in the Twitter update. 

HipHopDX addressed the intro, which is titled "Dreams and Nightmares" in its review of the album, which earned a 3 out of 5 rating

"The title-track to Meek Mill’s album has all the makings of a classic opening," HipHopDX says in its review. "Cinematic piano strokes, beautifully-guided strings and motivating words formulate a comforting message of resiliency. Without warning, the record immediately transitions into a menacing illustration of spiteful arrogance and threats, instigated by Meek’s vociferous delivery. It’s an undeniable performance that likewise piques the listener’s expectations. And yet, what transpires on the rest of Dreams & Nightmares is an inconsistency of lyrical ingenuity and thematic execution that will haunt the Philadelphian rapper on his debut."

    Too much shouting for my taste. Like Joe Budden said "Run up on Meek with the silencer, ngga quiet down."

    Any nigga who yells instead of rapping on everyone of his tracks shouldn't be considered "responsible for one of the best rap moments of this generation"

    When I think about the realest rappers, Nas, BIG, and 50 come to mind. But you gotta put Drake up there. People always make the case that he's a "simp" or "soft"... But he tells the truth. He talks about what he knows, which is mostly love. But when he starts sending shots everybody calls him fake. If somebody was coming at you, would you just stand there? Drake never claimed to be something he's not and continues to be on top of the game. Realest rapper out.

      drake is your typical suburban kid who is attracted to music that is completely the opposite of his real life.

    if the softest guy in hip-hop thinks your intro was one of the best rap moments you're doing something wrong.

    the "hold up wait a minute yall thought I was finished" line is probably one the most memorable lines out of any recent song to date. nothing else sticks out. An example of this would be the.."allow me to reintroduce myself my name is Hov" line

      Is it really that memorable of a line? how come I didn't remember it?

  • drake runs rap
    drake knows good music thats why he is the most consistent rapper alive and the face of rap. He doesn't praise overrated garbage like kendrick he only praises real rap. The only opinion that matters is drake's. Drake created and mastered rap with out drake hiphop and rap would be dead

      "He doesn't praise overrated garbage like kendrick" But he did praise Kendrick and took him on tour with him.

      not only that, drake knows exactly what to say to a man, how to cuddle, and he knows exactly how I like to be penetrated without me telling him. that's why drake runs rap.
