Beanie Sigel Allegedly Attacked For Saying He Wrote Lyrics For Meek Mill’s Game Diss Record (Video)
Just over one week ago, Beanie Sigel made his way into the beef between The Game and Meek Mill. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania veteran appeared alongside Meek and Dream Chasers affiliate Omelly’s in their their reply to Game’s “92 Bars” diss, rapping over Young. M.A.’s “Ooouuu.” Beanie Sigel spit just a handful of rhymes, in a conversational tone. After being briefly and amicably mentioned in “92 Bars,” the MC who previously worked with The Game, threatened to come out of retirement, and hop on a plane to LAX to get involved in the conflict that reportedly stemmed from snitching.
It has been an interesting week for the former Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records star since. Game wasted no time, digging into the former State Property figurehead on “Pest Control.” Later in the week, Beanie Sigel spoke to a Baltimore, Maryland’s 92Q—revealing that his hand in Meek’s initial reply was more than it seemed, and he was not at odds with Game. As video surfaced showing Sigel in the studio during the recording of the song, the rapper said, “He didn’t say nothin’ to get me on ‘Ooouuu.’ I just happened to come in the studio, so I just was helping him out with some lyrics, and the situation kind of played out like it did. It’s really no beef, especially between me and Game.” Sigel clarified, “I don’t want to put it out there like that and discredit nobody for [their] skills or nothing.” He continued, “Me and Game got a good relationship, had one for years. So it’s not a ‘me and Game beef,’ that’s a Game and Meek Mill beef. I’m just representing for Philly. That’s it.”
Representing for Philly may have cost Beanie Sigel after the incident. The rapper appeared at Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour in the city Friday night (September 23). On stage, Sigel touted, “The real king of Philly is back! We will be represented right,” which could be perceived as a jab at Meek and others. In footage newly released by TMZ, the rapper appears to have been knocked out backstage. The footage is very brief.
“Do I know anything about it? Yeah I know about it. I think [Beanie Sigel] passed out from his diabetic medication,” said the South Philadelphia resident. “Everybody know what it is. Y’all see how I just explained all that history? How we pray and bump and niggas got respect for him and how we let him come to the studio to jump on the [song] and all that. And then he back-doored niggas with Game and them, telling niggas information that only the camp know. And not the information that you wrote something, because you didn’t. The information was worse than that, for the people. And then some other shit came into play that I don’t wanna talk about.”
“You can’t put me on front street when I’m a real nigga, bro,” Teefy adds. “You ain’t gonna try to play me or play my family out or play my niggas out for a nut-ass nigga named Game. That’s just the bottom line. You broke the code of ethics of the streets, Beans, with that move, bro…I got real reasons to be mad at Mack,” the man says. “I always treated him with respect even though it was a lot of shit out there he coulda been got knocked the fuck out for, but at the end of the day, that was like the last straw that broke the camel’s back.”
Game made light of Sigel’s altercation in an Instagram video post. “So the young bol knocked out the old head because he was drawling at the jawn,’” Game says, mimicking Philadelphia slang. “Niggas is crazy, man. Niggas went and got Beans on a song to diss me that ain’t do what niggas thought it was gonna do, so y’all went back and beat the legend up, man?”
Notably, earlier this month, State Property member Peedi Crakk told Doggie Diamonds TV that others have written for Sigel, particularly during his 2000s tiff with Jadakiss. “I think Oschino [Sparks] and [Young] Chris had wrote that with him too. Yeah. They all wrote it together. Ask Oschino, he knows better than me. They did write that shit. I remember. They wrote it together. I’m sure Mac had took part in it but I definitely know that Chris did – niggas definitely chimed in with certain little punches,” said the veteran MC and former Roc label-mate.
In late 2014, Sigel survived a drive-by shooting in New Jersey.
