Mr. Philadelphia Rocks the
After a month-long delay, Meek Mill
finally brought his Wins and Losses Tour to Syracuse, Saturday, Nov. 4BS1 . Over 1,000 fans packed the
Goldstein Auditorium to listen to the Philadelphia-born rapper’s earlier hits and
cuts from his new album during the Greek Freak concert hosted by the Syracuse
University National Pan-Hellenic Council.
During the nearly hour long set, Mill remained
true to the blistering pace and gritty style of rapping that made him famous. The
Maybach Music Group hit-maker delivered electrifying moments throughout the
night, opening with a fiery performance of his Dreamchasers 2 track “House
Party.” After diving into “Monster,” the rapper segued into his
“favorite song from DreamChasers 4,” “On the Regular.”
Mill controlled the crowd like a
master with his rhymes, theatrics and energy. The fans in attendance showed appreciation
for the performance by singing along, shouting praises and being lively.
“I have been a fan of Meek since
seeing his underground cyphers online back in 2011,” said Erin McCants,
Syracuse University sophomore. “There is nothing like the energy he exerts
while on stage, it’s infectious. This night was well worth the wait.”
to Mill, his third studio album, Wins and Losses, was a chance to get back to
the hardcore rapping style that broke him into the industry. Tracks such as
“Young Black America” not only offer the listener hard hitting lyrics, but also
a message. “I wanted to dedicate one song to open the eyes to the people who
don’t come from my culture, or the people who are caught up in this jungle and
the things that are taking place in the world.”
performance concluded with Mill thanking the crowd for coming out and
supporting him in addition to vowing to come back to the Syracuse area soon to
top his performance.
