Oh, and Missy Elliott and Beanie Sigel are on Memphis Bleek's record too...

JAY-Z, MISSY ELLIOTT and BEANIE SIGEL are amongst the names set to feature on ‘THE UNDERSTANDING’ the forthcoming new album by JAY-Z associate MEMPHIS BLEEK.

The album, the follow-up to his 1999 debut ‘Coming Of Age’ will be released through Roc-A-Fella Records on December 4 in the UK, a day later in the US.

Jay-Z recently scored his second number one album of the year in the US with ‘The Dynasty’.

Meanwhile, the star’s Roc-A-Fella empire took another huge leap forward last week when the first ever clothes shop stocking only the ‘Roc’ line of designs Roc-A-Wear, was opened in Philadelphia. Both Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel were there, at Black Roc, to open the doors and sign autographs. Roc-A-Wear has grossed more than $80 million dollar in sales in less than two years.
