Memphis Bleek to release highly anticipated 5th album titled “The Process” November 24, 2009
Executive Produced by Jay Z
Artist announces deal with independent label Mass Appeal Entertainment

New York, N.Y. New York based recording artist and Jay Z’s protégé Memphis Bleek is scheduled to release his 5th studio album titled “The Process” on November 24, 2009. The album, Executive Produced by Jay Z, will feature production from Just Blaze and No I.D with special appearances by Jay Z, Rick Ross, Pharrell and more! The album will be released on Boston based label Mass Appeal Entertainment in a joint venture with Bleek’s own imprint, Get Low Records.

Memphis Bleek talked about the new album and said, “The Process” has been exactly that; a process. Taking what I’ve learned from a teacher and creating my own school. It’s time for me to handle my own business as a man and Mass Appeal supports the vision. I’m ready to share ‘The Process’ and Get Low Records with the world and along with Mass Appeal, I’m excited to take the next steps in my career independently”. Bleek is looking to expand on what might be expected from him musically and take his lyrical skills to the next level. With the first-rate production team behind “The Process,” along with Bleek’s known conscious, confident, harsh, metaphorical lyrics this album will keep his fan base and hip-hop enthusiasts thrilled. Meanwhile a new group of listeners are sure to find this album to be one of the best of 2009. Mass Appeal Entertainment’s CEO Marcus Siskind says, “We’re excited to be in business with Bleek and to take part in the next stage of his career. Bleek has established himself as a successful brand in Hiphop, and now has the opportunity to expand Independently to release new music to his fans”.
