Remember when XXL said the Broad Street Bully Beanie Sigel said he was sorry for going at the Jigga Man and wanted to bury the hatchet…well he doesn’t. He says his words were misconstrued.
I see said the blind man. And now…here’s what Jay said when he did respond a while back:
“Well, Beanie Sigel, at the time — and you can look it up if you like, just to be honest — was driving two Bentleys. 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 of success … at some point you have to look in the mirror, and look at yourself.
Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label, and a clothing line — and never went platinum, ever. I don’t know in the history of rap has anyone done so much with so little. I don’t even know what more can you do for a person at that point. A record deal, that’s normal. A record label and a clothing line? If that’s not pushing a person, shit …” — Jay-Z
