Jadakiss & Beanie Sigel Root Out The Necessary Evil Of Money (Audio)
The onetime beef between Beanie Sigel and Jadakiss may as well be an afterthought in 2016. The early 2000s tensions between State Property and The LOX are long over, and Jada’ is now notably a Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records artist, years after he challenged the reigning squad. After Sigel’s late 2014 drive-by shooting, one of the first new songs released by the “Broad Street Bully” following his recovery was with ‘Kiss, “The Life We Live.” It signaled a strong return from Jay Z’s onetime lyrical enforcer.
Now, still in their first handful of collaborations, the Philly-Yonkers connect builds on their existing foundation, and arguably sounds better than any of the past works. “Dinero” examines the cost of money. These two 1990s MCs rap with energy about how money brings out the worst in people, and the worst in their social circles. From a couple artists who have tasted the fruits of the commercial peak, as well as clawed in the DIY era, this song has chemistry, wisdom, and a lot of hard-body rhyme style.
While D-Block and Wu-Tang Clan have worked together on a few projects, Beans long discussed a collaborative album with Scarface. Perhaps a shared LP with Jason could be a move as well.
