Meek Mill touches down with another rapper whose testy relationship with the Feds, rivals his own. We’re talking about Offset & Quavo. But let’s clear; where Meek Mill sees a door handle, Quavo sees a flat surface for a windmill kick. The styles they “enable” couldn’t be any different on “Basic Bitch” but that’s essentially what makes it “Bitch” no less than your usual street banger.
On that note, “Basic Bitch” is creative runaround to the luxury rap template, one that borrows from Future’s playful banter on “King’s Dead” to a lesser extent. The gambit pays off – Meek Mill and his contributors Quavo, and Offset use gentler sound
Meek’s album Championships is among other things, an exhibition where he shows off his versatility. What the album lacks in a consistent content strategy, it makes up for in confidence, mostly in the people Meek Mill trusts to ride his coattails.
