Meek Mill Wants Everyone to Know the Real Meaning of an 'L'

All jokes aside.

Published July 18, 2017

On the heels of Meek MillWins & Losses album release, the Philly rapper has been dropping little clues about what his loyal fans can expect. The project’s title alone, has left a number of questions unanswered, but during a new interview with Atlanta radio station Streetz 94.5, Meek set the record straight on what it really means to lose some and win some.

According to the Dreamchasers artist, the new album is a personal reflection on his current state of mind. “I’m letting the people know how I feel right now,” he said. “I just wanted to give people a real perspective of my life, what we call wins and what we call losses.”

When it comes to L's, many automatically think of his rap beef with Drake or very public break up with Nicki Minaj, but Meek defined the real losses he’ll be addressing on the album. “I lost my case, we lost Lil Snupe; Chino lost his brother. Where we come from that’s a loss,” he explained. “When you talk L's and W's, you get an L, that mean you got life in jail. It’s critical. It ain’t what they talking about, so I wanted to give my perspective on it, let people know what I’ve been through.”

In preparation for the new album, Meek also dropped Wins & Losses The Movie: Chapter 1. The short film depicts a heart-wrenching scene of a woman giving birth in a hospital. But as new life appears, the life of the child’s father disappears as a result of a bullet wound. The three-minute video comes just after the rapper dropped the album cover art, which displays a collage of snapshots that have strongly impacted his life over the years.  

Wins & Losses will drop on Friday, July 21. In the meantime, check out Meek Mill’s full interview here.
