WoW! Freeway looks like he’s siding w/ Beanie! Peep the joint! Love is a battlefield
“And I ain’t sayin n*ggas left us in the hood though/ We ate our little food, did the dishes, cleaned the plates up/ You was eatin steak while we was eatin Steakum/ But I never complained, backed you up and tipped the waiter.”
There has been heavy discussion as it pertains to Beanie Sigel and his recent verbal assaults on Jay-Z. Many are feeling as though he has a valid argument, whereas others look at him as a down and out rapper trying to himself back to relevancy.
No matter how much he sends shots at the throne of his former “friend” people seem to need more convincing that he is pleading a real case.
“We don’t believe you, you need more people,” would simply sum it up for Beans.
With that being said, fellow Philly native has decided to end his silence and slip in his own commentary on the ongoing situation with the release of the track “Love Is A Battlefield”.
“All the people want me to get into detail/ Bout Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel/ We shall proceed/ Wanna know if I rhyme with Beanie/ Or if I got feelings on the D L/ We shall, see/ On The Stimulus Package/ When I drop it February 16/ This is how the sh*t be/ The game is to be sold not told.”
Freeway even goes into mention the death of Aaliyah, taking a page from Jadakiss to ask “What If” the plane had never crashed as if her passing put more pressure on relationships in the Roc.
As Jay went into his retirement and the Roc was relatively silent as Sigel served his bid, the rapper gave a glimpse into his life while everything was in a downward spiral.
“I was in the hood stressing with the wolves, while my n*gga Beans was doing a year in the wake up/ Every day I wake up, shooting, robbin, violence, a lot of transgression in the hood.”
Refusing to take sides in the beef, Free simply states that he doesn’t know who to blame, but he can only proceed with what is now and create a trail for himself into the future.
With Stimulus Package on the way, however, fans should expect to hear more from the rapper as he did on Free At Last when he aired his grievances about not receiving input from Kanye West or Just Blaze and how much the Roc had shifted since their dominance.
Only time will tell how long the story goes, but as more from the Roc throw in their two cents, it only becomes better for the listeners to realize what happened behind the scenes once the camera’s stopped flashing.
“What if the brothers never broke up and foul words was never spoke up/ Would that diamond still stay up?/ Wait up/ What if half these n*ggas wasn’t imaginary playa’s, would yall n*ggas notice?” #Shoutout HipHop Wired
Here is the audio from the interview…
As the holiday has come and go, the same issues have survived in a time where people are meant to be thankful for what they have in their particular situations.
Issues continue to spiral between Beanie Sigel and Jay-Z as the Broad Street Bully continues to publicize the inner turmoil that was once a friendship
During an interview with DJ On&On, Sigel is now stating that Jigga may have enlisted Nas to help him in the bubbling beef with himself and 50 Cent. Referring to the rumored sequel to “Empire State of Mind” the Philly native feels as though this will be the platform for his former boss to finally throw shots.
“I credit him for the moves he make, but I’m nice at chess too. They say he got a record [that’s] supposed to come out, the remix to that “New York” sh*t. He poppin’ shots at me. He poppin’ shots at 50. He put Nas on the record hoping that a n*gga will respond to it and come at Nas. Nas gon’ come right back. He’s not gonna hold no punches. He’s gon’ come right back. He should come right back, but look at the moves. I seen it.”
The history books show a time when Sigel was playing the shooter for Jay during the battle with Hov and Nas. In regards to a round two, the rapper apparently has no worries as it is a road that he has already crossed before.
“I’m not worried about Nas. I did that already. I did that already, in defense of [Jay]. I was there when dude was in the studio, on the couch, scratching his head under pressure.”
The only problem with the beef is the fact that the war has been one-sided with words only coming from Beans and barely a whisper from Jay. He maintains that he is waiting a counterpunch.
“I’m looking for a response. I know I’m a bully, but it ain’t no fun if he don’t swing back. Swing back, man.”
He adds that, at this point, the fire separating the two cannot be extinguished so easily anymore. There is only one way for the issues to be put to rest.
“We gotta do it televised now. It’ll be over, but our face-to-face conversation gotta be televised because the public wanna know. They deserve to know. The people wanna know. You gotta understand, there was people across the world that were putting up that dynasty sign, who believed in that Roc La Familia.”
As the saga continues, the soap opera drama is starting to look like a plea for attention from Beanie Sigel. The Bully might not be realizing how far ahead Jay might see himself now as opposed to the days when The Dynasty was intact.
