Rapper Memphis Bleek recently took time to discuss his departure from Roc-A-Fella distributor Def Jam .

“Jay’s the kindest nigga that walk the face of this earth and everything ain’t money,” said Bleek in a video on HipHopBeef.com, rebutting rumors that Jay-Z didn’t look after his artists. “Nigga gave everybody he knew that he came up with rhyming with opportunity, that’s all you can ask for…You know Hov broke bread…I left Def Jam…I had options to put out another album on Def Jam but then I had a meeting with him and he made it real clear to me, ‘Why do that, you got the opportunity right now to run your own company. I’ma get you the distribution deal for Get Low Records, you sign your artists, drop your albums under Get Low and I’ma still executive produce.'”

Bleek also spoke on Roc-A-Fella’s initial breakup, saying that “I saw it coming…I ain’t seen or speak to Beans in forever, I ain’t seen the Gunz in forever…I definitely ain’t seen or speak to Peedi Crakk.”

As for his relationship with Dame Dash, “It was weird. Dame always was cool to me. He looked out for me as a youngin…He was a good dude. You know how they say – with money, it changes a lot of things. It changed Roc-A-Fella.”
