Memphis Bleek Prep's Third Album

Memphis Bleek,

the first artist signed to the Roc-A-Fella label, is preparing to release his

third solo album, M.A.D.E. The album title stands for Money, Attitude,

Direction and Education.

The release sees

the return of Bleek, who took a hiatus after a motorcycle accident almost took

the life of his older brother in Miami.

Roc-A-Fella's head

engineer, Young Guru, as well as Kanye West and Just Blaze, accommodated Bleek

by moving down to Miami, where Bleek recorded the majority album as he tended

to his brother.

The album includes

Nate Dogg, Jay-Z, Trick Daddy, Donell Jones, Beanie Sigel and others.
