On the list of intelligent feuds one can start, dissing Jay-Z doesn't strike us as one you'd see ranked very high. But that's not about to stop Beanie Sigel.
The rapper dissed Jay-Z in his new “Average Cat” song, according to the Wall Street Journal, debuting the track today on New York’s Hot 97 radio station.
Referencing Jay-Z's real name Shawn Carter, Sigel's lyrics state, “The rapper Shawn called the police on me 'cause I was front row at the Blue Print 3.”
Afterwards, Beanie Sigel did not deny his intent, but qualified it by saying that he isn't encouraging an ongoing feud with Jay-Z or anything like that.
Here's Beanie Sigel supposed diss of Jay-Z ...
Of the lyrics, he said, “This ain’t a green light for everybody to start making 'diss Jay-Z' records. This is just me taking my brother out for five minutes.”
Their feud is reported to have originated from their Roc-A-Fella business dealings, and Jay-Z's allegedly adequate marketing of Sigel’s album in 2007.
Interestingly, his visit to Hot 97 occurred just hours after Jay-Z performed “Empire State Of Mind” at Yankee Stadium for Game 2 of the World Series.
