Beanie Sigel says he never intended to appear on Meek's diss track against The Game. He revealed he had been at Meek's studio in order to help him with lyrics.
Earlier today, The Game posted an Instagram video in response to an alleged brawl between Meek Mill and Beanie Sigel in their hometown of Philly. Just days ago, Sigel was featured on Meek Mill's "OOOUUU" remix, which functioned as a diss track aimed at The Game, in response to Game's surprise initial diss, "92 Bars." Those rumors, initially preposterous, are now starting to make a little more sense...
The Game suggested that Meek Mill (or members of his crew) jumped and beat up Sigel last night (Sept. 23) after The Bad Boy Reunion tour show in Philly, during which Sigel made a surprise appearance and declared himself "the real king of Philly." Maybe those words angered the Dreamchasers, but now a new recording from a Beanie Sigel interview from the day before has surfaced. And it makes it obvious as to why tensions might exist between the Philly emcees.
Phoning into Baltimore's 92Q Jams, the radio interview begins with Sigel speaking on upcoming music before co-host Persia Nicole changes the subject to ask about his decision to feature on Meek's diss track. "He didn't say nothin' to get me on the track," says Sigel. "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." Hold up. First, he implies that he never intended to be featured on a diss record, and more importantly, he mentions that he had been "helping" Meek out with his lyrics during the session when he recorded the verse that landed on the response track -- a shocking revelation considering Meek's proclaimed attitude toward ghostwriters.
Sigel went on to make it clear that he has no ill will toward The Game, saying they have a "great relationship." The Game had a slew of insulting bars for Sigel on his own response to Meek's diss -- also an "OOOUUU" remix (titled "Pest Control") -- but he referred to the former Roc-A-Fella rapper as a "legend" earlier today in his Instagram video post.
When asked about him slyly admitting to helping Meek out with lyrics, Sigel backtracked: "I don't want to put that out there like that and, you know, discredit nobody for their skills or nothin'." But the cat's outta the bag, and he reaffirmed the idea that needing help with lyrics could potentially speak volumes about one's skills. After hearing all this, are rumors of Meek seeking violent retribution out of the question?
