Good idea type beat.

September 15, 2020

The dream of every aspiring producer who shares "type beats" — instrumentals inspired by the existing work of their favorite artists — is to have the rapper they based their track on actually rap on it. Othellobeats got his wish yesterday when Meek Mill shared "Meek Mill Type Beat Freestyle," a new performance from the Philly rapper using an instrumental uploaded to YouTube seven months ago titled "Meek Mill x Kur Type Beat "2020 Vision."

The plaintive, mournful beat suits Meek Mill well; he has no trouble lacing it with bars about his how his past struggles inform his present-day grind. "What beat should I smoke next?" Meek Mill writes on Instagram, suggesting that this could be a recurring series, which would be pretty great. Even if it's just the one-off, though, it's safe to say that it's opened some doors for Othellobeats. "Don't sleep on youtube producers," he wrote on Instagram. "We up today!"
