Rapper Meek Mill has revealed his new album titled Expensive Pain will release on Friday, Oct. 1. The Philly native also unveiled the album cover, which was created from an original painting by renowned artist Nina Chanel Abney. He took to Instagram to share a video of the original artwork ahead of the announcement.

The album will include Mill’s latest songs “Sharing Locations” featuring Lil Durk and Lil Baby and “Blue Notes 2” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. The latter single is a follow-up to the artist’s notable song “Blue Notes” which was featured on his DC4 mixtape released in Oct. 2016.

Expensive Pain will be the artist’s fifth studio album and comes three years after the release of his last album, Championships. That album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums,” and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2020 Grammys, so we are excited to see what he will bring to the table in this latest body of work.

Mill is also seemingly on a high as the “Dangerous” rapper was recently honored with the Nelson Mandela Changemaker Award by PTTOW! (Plan to Take on the World) for his criminal justice reform work.
