What was once advertised as a surprise album now has a release date. That doesn't change how excited we are to hear some new music from Meek Mill. Not even a touch of the allure has disappeared. This is still Meek's first full-length project since being released from prison earlier this year. While he was locked up, he claimed that he was uninspired to write new music but now, he's dropping CHAMPIONSHIPS, which is due for release next week. November 30 is the exact date being promoted by his team and you can get his album, as well as some exclusive products, through a pre-sale at select Foot Locker locations.

Partnering with TIDAL, PUMA, and Foot Locker, Meek is introducing an unprecedented pre-sale plan for his biggest fans. We'll all be tuning in when he drops the album next week but before then, some collector's items are being made available to the public. At participating Foot Locker locations nationwide, you can purchase a CHAMPIONSHIPS collector's booklet for $3.50, which includes an instant download of the album when it releases. It will also be included in any purchases of PUMA sneakers. A free six-month trial to TIDAL is part of the deal, which definitely makes the whole thing feel too good to be true. 

The collector's booklet includes exclusive Meek Mill content on TIDAL, giving you access to his hand-picked playlists, priority chances to buy tickets for his shows, and behind-the-scenes footage. On his website, the Philly artist will also be selling exclusive Dream Chasers merchandise to celebrate the new release.

We're bound to hear a lot more from Meek as we near his album release date. Hopefully, a new single arrives between now and November 30.
