Philadelphia rapper and “flame spitter” Meek Mill has his highly-anticipated debut album “Dreams & Nightmares” coming out next Tuesday so its no surprise the buzz has started growing already.

In a random article over at Billboard about Meek’s insomnia and expectations for his big debut, they mention an album listening party that featured DeSean Jackson and a couple of big shots.

On Oct. 10, a few more-than-notable guests stopped by a listening party for Meek Mill‘s “Dreams & Nightmares” at New York’s Electric Lady Studios. Jay-Z and Will Smith
poked their heads into the private event before the Maybach Music
Group rapper previewed his album for a small crowd. By the end of
the evening, producer/singer The-Dream, Philadelphia Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson, labelmate Wale and Maybach head Rick Ross
had all shown up to support the 25-year-old MC. “He’s earned this
himself,” Ross told the crowd. “I’m just proud of the homey.”

You may recall the Sixers playing Meek Mill during warmups at the Wells Fargo Center last season at the request of former Philly baller Lou Williams. Lou has moved on to Atlanta and has actually appeared in a Meek Mill video as well as you can see below:
