Memphis Bleek Didn’t Like Jay Z’s Shout-Out On Kanye West “Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix)”

“Bleek could be one hit away his whole career/ As long as I’m alive he’s a millionaire/ And even if I die he’s in my will somewhere/ So he could just kick back and chill somewhere/ Oh yeah, he don’t even have to write rhymes/
The Dynasty like my money last 3 lifetimes”

Those are Hov’s lyrics on Kanye West’s “Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix).” Those are also the same lyrics that Memphis Bleek said hindered him as a artist. “I don’t like that line ’cause that line put a stamp on my career, like I look at people looking at me like [Jay] is just taking care of me and I’m just chilling and I’m not working,” says Bleek. “As you see, I’m here,” Bleek talked to This Is 50 today about his relationship with his longtime friend Jay Z.

When asked why does he feel that he’s underrated and what’s overshadowing him, his discusses always being compared to Jay Z. “It’s the big homie,” says Bleek. “The standards that I’m held to, nobody else is held to those standards, just me.” Listen to the conversation above and if you forgot “Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix),” listen to it below.
