THE fifth and final edition of Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers mixtape series will be released as an NFT, the rapper has announced on Instagram.
The Going Bad artist said that the tape will be released via a loyalty club and will arrive on the 1st of January 2022. He revealed the news via an Instagram post with the caption “How can they relate I’m too real n#%gas fake. #DCPOUNDCAKE LAST DREAMCHASER MIXTAPE A NFT …. LOYALTY CLUB STARTS JANUARY.1st 2022”.
Not a lot more information about the loyalty club has been released, other than Mill telling his fans: “You can invest merch albums and shows and get marketed.” The project is so far nameless and will be Meek Mill’s first venture into the NFT market.
The Dreamchasers series has been running since 2011, with the last instalment released back in 2016. It included a plethora of big names – Nicki Minaj, Lil Uzi Vert, Tory Lanez, 21 Savage, Young Thung, Quavo, Don Q, YFN Lucci, French Montana, Pusha T, Guordan Banks, and Lil Snupe were all involved, so if that’s anything to go by, DC5 should be something special.
The news comes on the back of the release of his latest album Expensive Pain, which was released by Maybach and Atlantic in October and peaked at No.3 on the Billboard 200 in its opening week.
Expensive Pain was Mill’s fifth studio album, and just a couple of months later he’s ready to release the DC5 mixtape. The work rate is admirable, but NME gave Expensive Pain a two-star review, claiming that the album seemed “rushed and haphazard”. His fans will be hoping that Mill has taken his time with DC5 and used the five-year gap between releases to really fine-tune the project.
Dreamchasers 5 is the latest musical project to enter the world of NTFs. Detroit rapper Eminem recently released his Shady Con action figure merch that were formally NFTs.
