Recently I downloaded every Lil Wayne mixtape ever recorded and have been listening to them all straight through at the office, and I gotta say, the first time I pushed play on the Twitter video I had to check to see if my iTunes was playing. This is a beat that could have been straight out of a Dedication. Or a Dipset tape. It is FIIIIREEEE.
So fire that it quickly went viral – so viral that Meek Mill himself caught wind of it, and loved it so much he invited the dude to his studio and said he’s going to put Rick Ross on one of his tracks.
Meek Mill may have found himself a new producer, whose beats are fire.
A video of a man named @DJTRACKADDICT on twitter that shows him producing a beat with the equipment on his lap, in what looked like the seat of a car, has caught the attention of rapper Meek Mill. The video posted by the producer back in May was picked up by another account by the name of @JuiceHarden who posted it Tuesday with the caption “Just wanted to share the craziest sh*t I seen/heard all day.” As the video became more popular, fans quickly began to mention Philly rapper Meek Mill, saying the beat would be a perfect fit for the rapper’s aggressive MC style.

It’s shocking, but there IS still some sort of positive aspect of social media – getting talented people noticed and changing their lives overnight.
Meek Mill ft. Rick Ross: Van Shit (Prod. @DJTRACKADDICT) coming to your Spotify soon. Who knows, might blow up so hard they have to change the whole label name from Maybach to Van Music.
