Meek Mill walked himself into one of music’s highest honors by making his debut on the Saturday Night Live stage. Bringing crowd-loved tracks from his Championships album, the 31-year-old hit a memorable three-piece combo for his first set on the late-night variety show.
Introducing the inaugural performance with the track that confirmed The Six God and Mill’s reunion, Meek began with “Going Bad.” Though Drake was absent, his vocals appeared during the three-minute performance before Meek was joined by Fabolous to deliver a live rendition of “Uptown Vibes.”
Returning for his second performance for the Jan. 26 show, the “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper supplied the latest album’s title track, “Championships.” Mill was joined by live musicians who carried out the slow burner with subtle drums and piano keys while red and orange lights circled the room, giving the performance an intimate feel.
Catering to the best of both Meeks, the South Philadelphia native provided viewers with the delicate balance between hard and soft that he is now being recognized for.
