The outlook is anything but bleak for this Jay-Z protege and his totally thugged-out debut, Coming of Age. Bleek’s relentless rhymes hold their own against guests like Ja Rule and Noreaga, yet show a surprisingly sensitive side on the autobiographical ”Regular Cat.” Even better are the ominous inner-city symphonies and raw street beats backing him — they’re of such fresh vintage they don’t need to age.
