Meek Mill, Nas, John Legend + Rick Ross are Celebratory On ‘Maybach Curtains’
After years of toiling around in the underground rap scene, Meek Mill is finally famous. So on ‘Maybach Curtains,’ the Philly spitfire lifts the drapes and exposes how he made it to Ray-Bans and Maybachs. Joining him on the reflective song are music heavyweights Nas, John Legend and Rick Ross.
On the posse track, produced by Infamous & The-Agency, Mill recalls his formative years of struggling to now being financially secure. He raps, “And birthdays was the worst days / Last week I made a hundred on a Thursday / And Club Liv got me sinnin’ on a church day (Amen) / Stevie J all on the mic screamin’ out my birthplace / Philly, we back!”
Then Nas offers his viewpoint of the world after going through his ups and downs. “But I ain’t tryna do no dumb s— / Chasin’ my tail in a circle / I made it so I’m chillin’ now / Transparent ceiling now,” he spits.
Finally, Rozay gives a hat-tip to his fellow rappers — Mill and Nas — and a middle finger to his haters. “Never worn, always on / Y’all n—as lukewarm / Talking cash over salads, heavy croutons / Cuban Linx’s equivalent to having soups on / Stretch Maybachs ’til they bring the coupes on,” he rhymes.
‘Maybach Curtains’ will appear on Mill’s debut album ‘Dreams and Nightmares,’ which hits stores on Oct. 30. You can catch Maybach Music Group — Mill, Ross and Wale — this fall on their U.S. tour next month. The trek launches on Nov. 2 in Columbus, Ohio and winds down on Dec. 2 in San Diego, Calif.
