Meek Mill has partnered with the WWE for a limited edition “Dreams and Nightmares” T-shirt, based off his iconic song.
The collaboration was unveiled on Saturday (October 8) prior to the wrestling franchise’s latest premium live event, Extreme Rules, which went down at the Wells Fargo Center in Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia.
“I used to watch smack down every thurs at 10pmest before they flooded our hood with guns and stuff,” Meek wrote on Twitter. “I had to sign out of watching wrestling lol…I used to love stone cold lol now I’m doing collabs with WWE that’s dream catcher!!!”

The colorful graphic tee shirt is currently being sold for $27.99 at the WWE shop.
Meek wasn’t always on good terms with the WWE. Back in 2015 during the height of his feud against Drake, the Philadelphia rapper used the Undertaker’s theme song on his diss track “Wanna Know,” which caused some friction with the franchise.
“WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously,” the WWE said in a statement to Complex at the time, “and we are looking into the matter.”
The collaboration comes after Meek paid tribute to another hometown hero: PnB Rock, who was fatally shot while dining at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in South Los Angeles in September.
“Hold up, this is where I want to represent for my fucking dawg,” the Dream Chasers boss told the crowd during a homecoming concert at Bowie State University. “Rest in peace to fucking PnB Rock, I don’t even want to talk about that shit.”
Musically, Meek Mill last dropped Expensive Pain in 2021, and on the project’s one-year anniversary took a moment to reflect on how a bad deal with Atlantic had caused him to make very little money off the tape.
“1 year Anniversary to the last album idk how money I made off it or had no control over the overall plan and I only made 13% off it lol,” he captioned the album’s cover art. “I’ma make 10m + off every album I drop from here on out.”
He continued, “I was caught up in that slave shit that’s why I been taking long …… that shit still on this album! everything I do flames! they don’t really promote music with morals in that system … now it’s my go now ima crack the code on getting paid for rapping! #Expensivepain.”
