"I ain't gonna say no order but it's Biggie [Notorious B.I.G.], Tupac, Jay-Z...I'd say Nas and Lil Wayne maybe? Yeah, Lil Wayne," he shared with Wild 94.9.
Meek was also asked to name his favorite album.
"My favorite album? Jay-Z's [Vol. 2...Hard Knock Life]. That's the first album I ever had."
Inspired by this album and others, Meek also shared what his goals are for his own release. According to him, he is striving to release a classic album.
"A lot of people have been shying away from the real rapping in Hip Hop. I'm really representing," he added. "When I come out with my album, I want to have a classical album, a Illmatic, a Hard Knock Life...a Get Rich or Die Tryin' type of Hip Hop album."
