Meek Mill told The New York Post on Monday that his new album will be surprise-released. “I’m not actually giving out a release date, it’s a surprise album,” the Philly rapper said.

One of the songs will contain references to activist and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Meek gave the Post a preview of some of the lyrics: "They told Kap to stand up if you want to play for a team, and most of his teammates said the same thing,” and, “Back in the ’30s you would be killed if you kneeled. They won’t kill you now, they just take you out of the deal.”

Since his release from prison, Meek Mill has shared a new EP Legends of the Summer and become hip-hop's public face for prison reform. His last full-length Wins & Losses was released in 2017.
