Yesterday, a man went “Bagel Boss” viral in the back of a white van, and he didn’t even have to have a public meltdown to do it.
Up-and-coming DJ @DJTRACKADDICT filmed himself laying down a hip hop beat that made the brains of the 14 million people who watched it explode into microscopic dust. At the time of this writing, the one minute and 30 second clip has amassed 537,000 likes and 175,000 retweets. Crank up the volume on your headphones and it’s easy to see why.

One of those 14 million viewers happened to be Meek Mill, who started a campaign to find the beatmaker in the video.
Mr. DJ Track Addict eventually identified himself and it led to an opportunity any aspiring musical artist dreams of.
Meek told Mr. Track Addict to meet him in the studio to collaborate. Before long, Meek reported that he was “fucking this beat up” and morphing it into a song titled, “Free Meek.” He even provided some of the lyrics to the song.
DJ Track Addict could become a household name from a video posted in the back of a van that wasn’t found on a porn site. What a world.
