Default why does memphis bleek not sell over 500,000 records????

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!!!!!!
