Is there any MC more unfairly maligned than Memphis Bleek? Thanks to being buddies with Jay-Z, Bleek’s career has become a punchline due to the inability to come anywhere near the success of his lyrical benefactor. But honestly, not man can or ever will. It’s a shame since Memph Bleek has more hits than your everyday struggle rapper (see: “Memphis Bleek Is…,” “My Mind Right,” “Do My,” etc.) and all four of his albums have been certified Gold.
That said, this new “Hustle Money” joint will only inspire more “Bleek needs to hang it up or take a permanent gig as Blu Ivy’s babysitter” slander. The song ain’t garbage, but it ain’t a heater either. Listen for yourself below.
