The Prince of the Roc, Memphis Bleek, will try once again to shed his “sidekick rapper” status once and for all with his new single, Hustla. Bleek paints a vivid portrait, reminiscing on his former drug-dealing days; he descriptively weaves the product, the fiends, the profit, and the cops all together. With a beat by Swizzy protégé Neo Da Matrix that screams East Coast, Hustla should get extensive play in the clubs up and around NYC. But the real question remains: Will this finally be the single that gets Memphis Bleek the respect he has sought out from under Jay-Z‘s shadow?
