Default Memphis Bleek...

Why did Jay not push this kid out to the public back in the late 90s? I used to think he was trash but I'm listening to his old stuff right now and I'm like damn why did Jay do this kid wrong, well I should believe it cuz he did Buddens bad too but I don't know if it's the horrible music today or if he was really good?

He kind of reminds me of Styles P with his content or a Jadakiss.

Check out his verse on More Money, More Cash, More Hoes and on the Holla Holla remix.

From what I remember, everyone was bending over backwards to make Memphis Bleek famous, but he just can't get over his essential irrelevance. He's the most average rapper of all-time. The only thing about him that isn't nondescript is how nondescript he is. The only way he could have ever been relevant was if all other rappers disappeared. His whole situation reminds me of the movie "Idiocracy."

The only Memph Bleek song I can remember bangin was that Round Here with Trick Daddy and T.I., that beat went hard.

I'm not sure if I could remember any of Bleek's verse present day though, but I think I can remember some of T.I.'s and Trick Daddy's, so that goes to show how much of a Memphis Bleek fan I was.

This is the most succinct and accurate summation of a rapper I've ever read
