Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill is set to release his fifth studio album, “Expensive Pain” on October 1st. Taking a page out of Westside Gunn‘s playbook, Meek Mill is starting with the artwork first. The artwork for the album was created by the artist Nina Chanel Abney.
Meek Mill Reveals New Artwork
Expensive Pain is expected to include his most recent singles, “Sharing Locations” featuring Lil Durk and Lil Baby, “Blue Notes 2”, with Lil Uzi. Both singles came paired with dynamic music videos to match the musicality of the track. All of this has been a crescendo in building excitement to an album that will be sure to quench his fanbase’s thirst.
The album cover artwork includes several nude women, dice, a yatch and Meek’s favorite pastime hobby – a motorcycle.

In November 2020, he released Quarantine Pack, which included the track “Letter to Nipsey” with Roddy Ricch. Other notable songs include “Otherside of America,” and the Justin Timberlake-featuring “Believe.”
