DJ Drama doesn’t think Meek Mill’s iconic Dreams & Nightmares intro has the same grip on Philadelphia as it once did. This week, the iconic Gangsta Grillz DJ caught up with TMZ following the Eagles’ win on Sunday. As the team marched out with Lil Uzi Vert at the front of their parade, the rapper’s single, “Just Wanna Rock” blared through the speaker system. As a result, Drama thinks Uzi’s “Just Wanna Rock” replaced Meek Mill’s “Dreams & Nightmares” intro as the official anthem of Philadelphia right now.
“I think it’s fair to say that ‘I Just Wanna Rock’ has replaced — with all due respect — ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ as the new anthem of Philadelphia. As the new anthem of the Philadelphia Eagles this year,” Drama said. “I’m looking forward to hearing that song many, many times [during] Super Bowl weekend.”
It might be an overreach to say that it’s replaced “Dreams & Nightmares.” After the Eagles won on Sunday, videos emerged of Meek Mill’s hit record playing through the Philadephia streets. Meek was incredibly excited after the Eagles win, as well. He later offered to perform at a club for free to celebrate the victory.
“Just Wanna Rock” appears to be the launching point of Uzi’s long-awaited project, Pink Tape. Earlier this month, Uzi came through with a high-energy performance of the single at the Apollo Theater for Drake’s show. Perhaps, we could see a new single drop sometime soon.
The rapper hinted at the release of Pink Tape last year before he dropped off Red + White. He hasn’t provided a clear release date on the project, though he indicated that it would drop in February. Considering the momentum that “Just Wanna Rock” built in recent times, it feels like February is a better time than any for the follow-up to Eternal Atake.[via]
