Meek Mill has announced the first-ever Dream Chasers Records compilation album.


On Monday, the "Going Bad" rapper took to Instagram to reveal the project and its cover art.


“DREAM CHASERS VOL. 1 LA FAMILIA WE GONE SEE,” he captioned the post.


The title of the album appears to pay homage to Jay-Z's "The Dynasty: Roc La Familia."


Originally billed as a compilation album but eventually released in 2000 as Jay-Z's fifth studio album, "The Dynasty: Roc La Familia" showcased artists signed to Jay's Roc-A-Fella Records at the time, most notably Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, and Freeway.


In his post, Meek tagged a number of rappers signed to his Dream Chasers label, including Yung Ro, Vory, and Diamond Street Keem.


The Philadelphia native did not provide a release date for the album, however.



In other Meek Mill news, last week, the 36-year-old star announced his plans to launch his own cannabis strain.


Meek shared the news via Instagram on Thursday.


"Of course I’m starting a weed strand to go along with the new album!" he wrote alongside a picture of him posing in what appears to be a cannabis shop.


Meek's announcement that he plans to launch a cannabis comes just months

after he announced that he was quitting smoking altogether.


In November, Meek took to X, the platform previously known as Twitter, to state that he was giving up cannabis because it was negatively impacting his health.


"My doctor said I got a lil bit emphysema in a chest if I don’t stop smoking it cuts my lifeline in half," he wrote. "I was addicted to the nicotine and this new weed got too many chemicals and too risky to play with my mental!"
