Memphis Bleek, a former Roc-A-Fella signee and longtime friend of Jay-Z, continues to express his desire for a collaborative album with the rap icon. Despite facing consistent rejection from Jay-Z, Bleek remains committed to his vision.
In an exclusive conversation with TMZ at LAX over the weekend, Memphis Bleek discussed his ongoing efforts to convince Jay-Z to embark on a joint musical project. Although years have passed since their last musical collaboration, Bleek maintains his optimism and dedication to making the project a reality.
When asked about the potential for a collaborative album between himself and Jay-Z, Memphis Bleek responded with enthusiasm, saying, “I’m on that boat too. I wish” This concept garnered significant attention on various social media platforms earlier this year.
While Bleek acknowledges the challenges of bringing this project to fruition, he remains hopeful, stating, “I don’t think so. Hov too far gone, man! I was supposed to try this when he had $100 million, not a billion. When you got a billion, it’s hard to get you in the booth. Only his wife can do it.”
Despite these initial sentiments, Memphis Bleek quickly shifted his stance and encouraged fans to remain optimistic. He believes that his unwavering persistence will eventually yield positive results. Bleek humorously shared, “Hold it ’cause I’m trying. I still send him joints, I get shot down like a clay pigeon.”
He went on to express his vision for the joint project, stating, “But something gon’ stick one day, ya know? But if we could drop an EP together, that would be — c’mon, that would close off the whole trilogy of the ‘Coming of Age’ story. Fans need something classic
