As smart as is skilled Meek rode his shine with 2011's mix tape Dreamchasers which earned its place on XXL Magazine's "Top 5 Mix tapes of 2011" (#2), RapRadar.com (#1), and MTV who also placed the rapper at #7 in their Hottest MC list despite not having released an official album. Dreamchasers 2 came next; all of which set the stage for Dream & Nightmares. Asked what he's bringing and Meek replies "my hunger. I gotta get it, you can hear it...I'm trying to get in now." Dreams & Nightmares shows he's arrived.
