The track “Contagious,” is an unreleased Migos and Meek Mill collaboration, which has finally surfaces. Years ago, Meek Mill and Migos teamed up for a KeY Wayne produced collaboration called “Contagious.” While the rappers actively promoted the track with a few social media snippets and in-studio teasers, the song ultimately remained in the vault, leaving fans wondering what became of it. As is often the case with unreleased joints,” perhaps there was some sort of sample clearance issue that prevented it from dropping. Maybe both parties decided it wasn’t up to par, for whatever reason. Regardless of the motivation, “Contagious” remained an urban legend for years to come – until now.
The track has finally dropped in full, and it definitely holds up. While these types of songs never truly feel “new,” it’s still cool to see the time capsule effect taking place. Since Meek was tweeting about this one in 2014, it stands to reason that Migos and Milly might have laid “Contagious” down as far back as 2013. That would mean that Migos was in the middle of breaking through, coming off the release of their acclaimed Young Rich N*ggas mixtape, as well as their star- making single “Versace.” In 2013, Meek was preparing the release of Dreamchasers 3, and beginning work on his album Dreams Worth More Than Money.
