New Music Friday: The top 7 albums out on Oct. 1
Philly rapper Meek Mill is back with an all-new studio album this week called Expensive Pain, an album he vowed, on Twitter, would be his best yet. We open this week’s show with the cut, “Blue Notes 2” and talk about the ways Meek Mills’ career and life have evolved since his previous full-length, 2018’s Championships.
