The issues between Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel took another twisted turn last night as Beans and 50 Cent appeared on Power 99 to officially announce the Philly emcee’s signing to G Unit.
During the interview, 50 Cent mostly played the background as Beanie Sigel layed out his grievances with his former Roc-a-fella leader, speaking on his alleged money mismanagement over two Bentleys and his record label.
“Beanie Sigel was driving around in two Bentleys and only had to pay $5100 a month. So it’s not like I obtained all this wealth, like you [Jay-Z] helped me get all this wealth and you gave me two Bentleys. They just gave away monthly plans,” Sigel explained. “You shot yourself in the foot with that. You didn’t give me a record label. It only cost a couple hundred to search the name, State Property Records, nobody owned it. I patented the LLC, and it only cost me $750 to say on a piece of paper that I own State Property Records. I did that on my own, you didn’t give me that.”
Even though he revealed that Damon Dash allegedly went behind his back and sabotaged State Property’s clothing product, Sigel admonished Jay-Z for what he refers to as continued unnecessary jabs at a man he’s clearly defeated.
“Take me out, Dame and Biggs were your mans from day one. If he [Dame] was messing up the money y’all should’ve been able to straighten that out. Whatever the gripe, you took everything from him already,” Sigel argued. “You took the clothing line, the record label, he has nothing. Now he’s going through financial difficulties. Then he loses his wife and gets a divorce. You feel that comfortable on a record to say ‘Lucky Lefty, kiss the wife goodnight for me?’ You already killed the man, he’s dead already! Now you’re going to stand over top of him and urinate on him and stomp on him? You can do that? I got something to say about that.
On whether to expect more diss records, Sigel made it clear he would continue to go at Jay lyrically until he gets a response, and predicted he has the skill set to emerge vuictorious.
“He’s a crumb, and I’m going to put my foot on his neck until he responds!” Sigel exclaimed as 50 laughed in the background. “Please make a record because a week has been out, dog. I’m not taking nothing from Jay-Z as an artist, he ain’t no walk in the park. All I’m saying is I don’t have a job to keep up to him. Watch what I do next.”
“And Beans is coming to G Unit,” 50 added as Beans did the signature G Unit stuttering proclamation.
At press time, Jay-Z could not be reached for comment.
