Album Review

For all its action-packed Frank Stallone bombast, the opening track of Memphis Bleek's fourth album, 534, opens the door with a key instead of a battering ram. Things then get flat-out bizarre: a brief interlude lifted from an obscure folk artist (Lisa Koch, known for a song titled "Beaver Cleaver Fever") sets up "Dear Summer" — a (decent) Jay-Z feature with no other MCs present. The Swizz Beatz-produced "Like That" is T.I.'s rallying "Bring 'Em Out" at half power; "Infatuated" is the obligatory track for the ladies, containing the phrase "You complete me" in the hook. The album improves in its latter half, although it's usually the production work — from the likes of 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, and Bink — that attracts the attention.

534-Memphis Bleek

Past three albums haven't gained much success and now he is back with his fourth, taking it to the projects of 534. 534: Okay intro, it's exciting with a decent hook, he has a great line "drank up all the kool aid, left glasses in the kitchen, food for thought my n***a you do the dishes." 3.5/5 Dear Summer: Jay-Z solo (no Bleek), soulful production that Jay passes the torch to Bleek. 3.5/5 Like That: First single, Swizzy's rousing horns make a solid banger. Not as good as Bring Em Out but good nonetheless. 4/5 Infatuated: The chick track, Boxie has a nice hook, production wasn't bad, nice track. 3.5/5 The One: Rihanna brings her Barbados feel to the hook. Great collab. 3.5/5 First, Last and Only: M.O.P. joins Memphis for some fire on this collab. 3/5 Get Low: Livin Proof joins Bleek for this banger that has a great bounce to it, hot track. 3.5/5 Oh Baby: Sample is a little annoying, Gunnaz appear. 2.5/5 Smoke The Pain Away: Smoker track, skipper. 2/5 Hater Free: Great production, Bleek does a decent job. 3.5/5 Alright: Another solid beat, Bleek's flow is good. 3.5/5 All About Me: Skipper. 2/5 Straight Path: Sentimental track that was good. 3.5/5 Bleek's 534 I think is his best album, but it is still lacking. It won't reach mass audience and will be lucky to be gold. Lyrically he isn't great and often spits too few bars. Production he is helped out greatly and has a number of guests that assist. Bangers are "Like That", "First, Last and Only", "Hater Free" and "Get Low". "Infatuated" and "The One" are solid R&B cuts. Rating 6.5 out of 10

Mediocore , as tha past ones

Memphis Bleek has never released a good album.When i heard bout his new album.I thought to myself maybe he can do it this time.then i figured out jay-z produced it .uh oh , he produced the ones that didnt do good so that dropped the high anticapation.When the cd came out i was awfully suprised.tha bst 5 songs are 1.Smoke Tha pain Away----easily tha best song plus good lyrics and singing as well 2.Dear Summer--Another good song , but where is bleek on this one? 3.Like that--Swizz Beatz produced what u expect 4.534--CHESSY BEAT! But still good lyrics 5. get Low--Livin proof is gonna be a good rapper , good song and good lyrics .BUT!!! the worse song is interlude it sounds like a 60's sample that last long as 16 seconds.Dony buy this album just buy the songs i said were good.

Memphis is not a bleek anymore

this album si so much better that his previous album. my favorite songs on this album is "alright" and "dear summer." you should make a new album pretty soon since this is 2007 and you havn't made any new cds since this album. make your gigs sound like the gigs on 534, don't try anything diffrent.
