Meek Mill- “Expensive Pain” (Album Review)

Meek Mill- “Expensive Pain” (Album Review)

While not carrying the emotional weight of his last album, ChampionshipsMeek Mill’s newest lp Expensive Pain, is another fun yet frustrating adventure in the Philadelphia rappers catalog. Through a drawn-out 18 tracks with features from names such as Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert, the 34-year-old shows just how braggadocios and flagrant he can be. Despite using one generic trap beat and flaunt after another, Meek’s over-the-top swagger and high-profile guests keep things relatively entertaining throughout most of the records 55 minute run time. Although the loss of an integral style is enraging, what really makes this lp such a head scratcher is Meek Mill’s constant use of autotune, which just sounds absolutely rancid over his rasp and drawn out vocals. While Meek definitely sells his skills short by going in the laziest direction of his now over-decade-long career, this album is still formidable, although disappointing.
