A lot of kids are running around labeling this as a diss toward Jigga....I gotta say, for the most part they're right, but it's also far deeper than that.
For whatever reason Sigel has unleashed a new joint called "What You Talkin Bout?" that has a few lines in it that definitely give off a hint of his huge bitterness....
The 7 minute track finds The Broad Street Bully posturing as if he knows things about Jay; "I could say shit that could make B look at you different".....and that ain't all. Fast forward to the end of the track when Beanie is just venting:
"Many people gon walk in and out your life, but only real friends leave footprints on your heart. I think yours is fading in the sand…
The richest man ain’t the one with his first dollar, it’s the one who still got his first friend."
Intriguing? Hell yes...Beans is literally the only cat from back in the Roc-A-Fella days that we could take serious issuing a few insulting remarks toward Jay. We looked the other way when Dame said his piece and dismissed guys like Peedi Crack, now we are forced to stop and examine.
Will Mr. "Run This Town Tonight" attempt any damage control before Sigel decides to go full mode with his attack? Doubtful... Judging by his call-in this morning to Mike And Mike on ESPN rather than any Hip-Hop radio stations, Jay's either not too concerned or unaware. The biggest news in his life right now is that performance last night in the Bronx for the Series, not his past label mates and underlings beefin' so we'll give him 24 hours to soak this in. When He does hear Beans though, no question some feelings will come up. If this does explode into a battle, it has the potential to be the best one Hip-Hop has seen since Jay and Nasir were going at it.
