Memphis Bleek Talks Dame Dash, T.I., Trick Daddy, DeHaven & Emory Jones

Bleek shouts out southern rap stars T.I. and Trick Daddy for jumping on his single “Round Here” back in 2003. The New York native acknowledges Tip for “representing the same code” as him, and he gives props to Trick for “running Miami at the time.”

The M.A.D.E. creator also speaks on long-time Jay Z friend Emory Jones. Emory is the person Jay has mentioned on several records including “La Familia.”

“When you say Emory Jones to me that means what O.G. really stands for,” says Bleek. “He’s the realest guy I ever met in my life. People make movies about gangstas and the end you all be like, ‘aww.’ If you ever make a movie about Emory we all gonna love it.”

Another pre-fame associate of Jay Z, DeHaven, is brought up during the discussion as well.

“Him and Jay had their hustle ties and things went sour,” states Bleek before suggesting for more information listen to “A Week Ago” from Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life and “It Ain’t Personal” from The Best of Both Worlds. “Then read DeHaven’s book. You ain’t gonna hear it from me. I can’t give it up. Y’all trying to get me killed.”

Lastly, Bleek speaks on his relationship with Roc-A-Fella co-founder Dame Dash.

“Dame held me down in this game. He got me out of bad contracts. Got me in good contracts, so I could never diss Dame,” adds Bleek. “Things just went sour. Do I wish I could reverse it? Yeah, but we in the present.”

    Bleek was always underrated. If you slept on him then you missed out.

    • Jared

      I always thought he was overrated. So much hype on the first album. I respect your opinion though.

      • MrNoName2K

        That first album wasn’t all that bad though..i thought it was pretty tough

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        1st album was the best one to me

      • Truth Powell

        Problem with that first album is that whole Swizz Beats Casio era was a dark time for hiphop. NYC was moving from the samples of the early/mid 90s to the modern sound.
        M.A.D.E. has better production.

      • Pierre Elliott

        MODERN SOUND?!!!! NO NO NO NO.

        GET IT RIGHT. MEMPH IS TALKING ABOUT IT ALL…

        HOW AND WHY NYC FELL OFF

        THAT CASIO SHlT WAS PART OF IT….

    • Casor_G

      He really only shined on records with Jay-Z

      • MrNoName2K

        Word but you also have to look at who he was competing with at the time. And his mixtapes were always FIRE

      • acapwn

        Competition be like that

    • dehova

      I would agree BUT I’m sure he confirmed Jay-Z wrote his raps. If you ask me that makes him Foxy with a dick.

      • MrNoName2K

        I dont know about all that. Jay probably had some creative input but I doubt that Jay wrote ALL his sh*t

      • brooklyn817

        Jay did write one verse for Bleek and that was the original coming of age. Jay was telling the story about him meeting Bleek and putting him on. Jay felt it would mean more if he had Bleek rap the parts about himself. He treated it like a movie script. Only time jay wrote for Bleek.

      • dehova

        You sure?

    • Truth Powell

      Bleek is one of those dudes the insecure sheep like to gang up on. The kid is dope.
      I’m disappointed his new album never came out. That “Still ill” was on point.

      • MrNoName2K

    LOL….Bleek funny as hell man, and seems like a real cool, and loyal
    fellow. I gotta admit, the rhyme he had on the song, “It’s Alright”(I
    think), the one playing in the vid, has got to be his greatest, at least
    to me. Flawless, from front, to finish…lol I wanted to tell him that
    once, when I saw him at a store in Jersey, but too many folks was hawkin
    him, so I said I’ll do it some other time. Stay loyal Bleek, and keep
    gettin that bread. One L…..
