he's an o.k lyricist, his first album was good but eversince then, he just....??????????????? I don't fuckin know! I think the only reason the rest of his albums have STILL managed to go gold (barely) is because of jigga man

somebody just share ya thoughts on why memph bleek just can't cut it

and for the record, i think memph is nice (yes damn it i said it)

*plays "round here" for 30 seconds then cuts it off immediately*

His 1st cd was that knock..after that I lyrically lost interest in him...I dont think the Roc puts much into him anyway as far as promo and all that.

I don't know. Maybe b/c he doesn't really bring anything new to the table. I'm a Bleek fan though. So this isn't hate. I think Memph Bleek has some pretty good albums. He's an average lyricist but he's far from wack.

Very true. Kanye's Late Registration is gonna keep The ROC alive after M. Bleek & The YG's flops.

I saw memph about a month ago in a shoe store, the man aint really nothin.

the only reason Jay keeps him out in the public releasing his albums is becuase hes his child hood friend, thats all. If it would have been somebody else, this man would have been gone off the face of the earth a while back.

Jay even said it, his album doesnt sell much, but thats ok cause bleek has money cause Jay gone see to that. Jay even put bleek somewhere in his Will!!!!!!

He ain't got mass appeal. That's the problem, a lot of people expect him to go double platinum just because he's Jay's boy and 'cause he down with the Roc. But dude ain't got what it takes to go plat. Don't blame it on the lack of promotion or whatever, he's putted out 4 albums, all of them flopped. He's okay tho, 534 was aight...

534 was real nice yo...beats were on point and he dropped some jewels
not classic by any means but his best work since Coming of Age, no doubt
but sumone mentioned the ROC not putting much into him...which is true despite him being one of the first after Jigga with the ROC.....sad

peace

Yo Bleek Is Good. I Liked His First Joint With Memph Bleek Is, And That It's Alright Song Is Pretty Good. I Meen His Singles Are Usually Decently Recieved But As Someone Said Before No Charisma He's Just Lacking That Intresting Personallity. And That Holds His Sales Back Because "Real Hip Hop Fans" Wont Buy It Because He's Pop And "Pop Fans" Look For Personality. So He's Stuck In The Middle.

he's wack,
he's boring
he's not catchy
he doesn't appeal to women
he's not marketed well.

Only reason he sells over 500,000 is cuz of the Jay-Z promotion. I'm not hating on him or anything - do your thing or whatever. But why listen to Bleek, when there are good emcees to listen to?

Yea Jay is expecting Memphis to be the next him. I wasted my money on Memphis' last two albums.
