On the title track to The Blueprint Jay-Z rhymed that ” Bleek you’re still with me – n*gga what did I say?The time is comin; you one hit away.” Eight years later he’s still trying to make good on that promise.
Memphis Bleek is scheduled to release his 5th studio album titled The Process on November 24, 2009. The album, Executive Produced by Jay Z, will feature production from Just Blaze and No I.D with special appearances by Jay Z, Rick Ross, Pharrell and more! The album will be released on Boston based label Mass Appeal Entertainment in a joint venture with Bleek’s own imprint, Get Low Records.
“The Process has been exactly that; a process,” says Bleek. “Taking what I’ve learned from a teacher and creating my own school. It’s time for me to handle my own business as a man and Mass Appeal supports the vision. I’m ready to share ‘The Process’ and Get Low Records with the world and along with Mass Appeal, I’m excited to take the next steps in my career independently.”
Bleek’s last release was 2005’s 534, named after his building in the Marcy Projects. Jay-Z’s “Dear Summer” was featured on the disc.
