MADE Update

"M.A.D.E." has been on ice and never MADE any of its set release dates.

The highly anticipated third-solo by the R.O.C. veteran will finally make its way to stores near you on December 16th, making it one of the final albums of the year. Hopefully, this long-awaited LP will live up to its expectations.

The resulting record shows a mature, multi-faceted Bleek, whose range of lyrical subject matter has expanded by leaps and bounds. Packed with club-bangers and radio hits fans have come to expect from the Memph-man, the album includes the Just Blaze-produced first single “Everything’s A Go” and introspective tracks like “My Life” and “Understand Me Still.” Another outstanding track on M.A.D.E., “Hypnotic” which wound up on Dame Dash Warrior's Mixtape gave a little taste of the song with Bleek, and Beanie Sigel and saving Jay-Z's part for last, trading sixteen’s over a slow, funk-heavy groove thick with incense and blunt-smoke. “Give you the pen, the book, the word, the truth, the sight, the mind / I put it down, you call it a rhyme. I call it a sign / I predict the unpredictable. Heaven is invisible, but hell isn¹t physical” Bleek spits over flutes and heavy bass.

Appearances are pretty high with Donell Jones and fellow labelmates, sparking the album witht he new single and video coming out soon, Trick Daddy & T.I. bring their "dirty dirty" rhyme style to another Just Blaze banger, “Round Here.” But make no mistake about it, Bleek is the star of this show. After a few years away from the game due his brother's accident, one of Roc-A-Fella’s Veterans is back, to add "M.A.D.E." to the collection.
