"Ain't this what they been waiting for?" Meek Mill asks on the opening track of Dreams and Nightmares, his debut album. The piano-heavy song, which shares the album's title, kicks off the 14-track effort and is evidence that what Meek has to offer is worth the wait.

Dreams and Nightmares, due Oct. 30, reflects the range of the rapper's ability. From the cinematic "In God We Trust" to the thumping "Polo & Shell Tops," the Philadelphia native's album delivers anthems that glorify living his dreams, but recognize the nightmares that lie within.

If nothing else, the collaborators credited on the album speak to its diversity. Rick Ross, Nas and John Legend are all featured on tracks, while Boi-1da and Kenoe lent their production talent.
