Meek Mill – “Young Black America” f. The-Dream (Video)

blame it on JES7 June 24, 2017

Before embarking on the Against All Odds Tour with Yo Gotti next month, Meek Mill, who has been setting the stage for the eventual release of his next album, Wins & Losses (see his previous releases, “Glow Up” and “Whatever You Need” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Chris Brown) returns with a video for “Young Black America.”

The Spike Jordan-directed clip dives head-first into the continuous atrocities committed against young Black men by the hands of those who swore an oath to protect-and-serve, including his own encounters with the police at a young age. Furthermore, the song also touches on black-on-black crime and gang violence which permeates the city of Philadelphia.

The song also flips the same Al Green vocal sample and bassline made popular on JAY-Z‘s “Blueprint (Momma Loves Me),” while The-Dream provides the song’s hook.
