Jay-Z on Beanie Sigel’s Diss: ‘I Gave You a Deal, a Record Label & Clothing Line. What More Do You Want?’

jayz2This week, Beanie Sigel dropped a diss track towards his former boss Jay-Z, and then hopped on Philly radio to elaborate on why he did it.

Beans criticized Jay on the track, called “I Ain’t Ya Average Cat,” for not doing enough to make his artists as successful as they should’ve been.

He even claiming that, at one point, he asked the superstar rapper for a release from the Roc because he had a huge deal on the table, but was denied.

While he claims Jay never pushed the artists on his Roc-A-Fella imprint, like say a 50 Cent did for Tony Yayo or Lloyd Banks, Jay-Z sees things very different.

In a recent press conference in Canada, in support of his Blueprint 3 album, Jay was asked how he felt about Beanie’s allegations, to which he explained that he gave the Philly rapper more than enough opportunities to succeed. So, if he didn’t, it was his own fault.

“Beanie Sigel, at the time — and you can look it up, if you like, let’s just be honest — was driving two Bentleys,” Jay told reporters. “I don’t know how. It’s impossible to drive two cars at one time … with his momma in the sticks and selling 800,000 records. I don’t know what more you can do for somebody.

“What people choose to do when they attain that type of success … at some point, you gotta look in the mirror and look at yourself. Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label, and a clothing line. Never went platinum, ever. I don’t know in the history of rap, is anyone done so much with so little,” he continued.

According to Jay-Z, for a rapper to be given a deal, a label, and a clothing line without a platinum record, that’s unheard of. So, as far as pushing him, if all those things weren’t enough, he doesn’t know what is.

“What more can you do for a person? A record deal? That’s normal. A record label and a clothing line … if that’s not pushing a person, then sh**,” Jay-Z explained.

  13. Jay this Jay that, he does his homeboys dirty this, he’s a thief. How the fuck do you, know? You were in the ROC, were you in the conference/board rooms where deals were being made? Live for yourselves, stop being typical, self-loathing, weak minded, envious people. Jay stands on top while the real, degenerate people who use to be around him are no longer relavant, why? Good energy, hard work and truth brings good things.

  14. Jay Z didn’t mention to 2 (State Property)movies that Beanie starred in as well.

    That’s alot exposure for an artist who never went platinum.

    He was better than memphis bleek and freeway, but not high in top tier hip hop
    artists.
