Beanie Sigel releases diss song ‘Average Cat’ to Jay Z

    In a new diss track directed at Jay Z (called What You Talkin Bout (Average Cat) (Jay-Z Diss), former associate and friend Beanie Sigel goes in hard on Jay, Roc-a-fella and Damen Dash, with claims of cop calling, failure to pay up, abandonment and a particular line which threatens Jay that what he knows could ruin his long time relationship with wife Beyonce.

    Beanie Sigel didn’t just release the track and hide behind its lyrics either, as he called in to speak to Charlamagne the God on broadcast radio, clarifying his diss, and the foundation of this beef, which he says was sparked by lyrics in a Jay Z song, “Already Home” where he rapped that “I heated up the Roc already, why can’t y’all get hot already?”.

    That wasn’t the only sore spot Sigel had with Jigga’s album, saying “When I listened to The Blueprint 3, I heard a lot of shots directed towards people.” and adding that he felt that he should have been included on the latest Blueprint, “I feel he gave out a lot of pairs of shoes on that album,” the upset rapper added. “I felt my feet was meant for a couple of them.”

    During Sigel’s track, he drops allegation after allegation, with lyrics like “How it feel to get exposed? Don’t you feel naked?/ I was a fly on the wall, shit I witnessed/ I can say shit that will make B look at you different.”

    Then, he drops bombs that Jay had the cops called to remove him from the rappers September 11 performance in New York, claiming in the song that “The rapper Shawn called the police on me/cause I was front row at the Blueprint 3,” Siegel raps. “Shit, I just wanted to see him MC, and reminisce on when we was the R.O.C./But he called all the C.O.Ps, not only that, he brought out the F.E.Ds/So that’s telling me ‘F You Sieg,’/so F you too and F Bleek three.”

    And none of this is coming out of the blue, at least, according to Sigel: “I think I held my tongue long enough about this whole Roc-a-Fella situation, I was the realest thing that happened to the Roc. The Roc was just a rock. I brought the Fellas to Roc-a-Fella Records; Hot 97, State Prop, y’all remember. I brought the street cred to that. I fought all them battles: Jadakiss, Nas, Dipset. Anybody you woulda told me to go after. Matter of fact, you ain’t even have to tell me. I frontlined for that thing of ours, for that diamond that people was throwin’ up. I’da took a bullet at that time.”

    But, things changed when the rapper did a year long stint in prison, in which Jay had zero correspondance with him . The two met after to discuss releasing Sigel from Roc-a-Fella, where Jay offered him money to stay signed, which Beanie turned down, and in the diss track claims he didn’t want Jay’s money, but the chance to earn his own money: “I told you I ain’t want your money, But you was in a position to let me get my own money, and you couldn’t do that”.

    Addressing further money and management issues on the radio, Sigel further explained how Jay would claim that exposure compensated for the lack of payments, “Jay in another place and I understand that. He did what he did as far as signing people to Roc-A-Fella Records, you did that,” Sigel added. “But as far as the push that people coulda got that really could have did things, you didn’t do that. If you look at 50 Cent – no disrespect to the G-Unit, cause I love the way 50 Cent did with his dogs – but if you look at it, them dudes got more money and more bread than anybody in State Property. Because 50 made sure of that. 50 took his people on tour and paid them, not tell them it was a good look for them to be on tour.” He also claims that the once valued street cred he brought to the label was the same thing now preventing Jay from wanting to be seen with him, “I understand Jay, you at a certain place in your career where everyone can’t go,” Sigel said. “You don’t need Beanie Sigel in the building with a pre-perception that ‘this crazy dude might do anything.’ … We taint his image, State Property and the place that he’s at.”

    Then, he explained the hardships that Roc-a-Fella faced, as a result of reckless spending by Damen Dash, “The clothing line and all that came about cause Dame did that. Dame gave me the clothing line. I got the Pro-Keds thing that came from a situation that I did, but then Dame back doored the sneak and gets with the licensee guy who licenses Rocawear and buys the license out the Pro-Keds, without me knowing it,” Sigel said. “So now I am not getting 50 % profit that I would be getting off every Pro-Ked sneaker sold with the SP logo on it like the original deal was… As a team player, why just wear the Pro-Keds when I can cross-market it and have my own sneaker? Then Dame stopped making Pro-Keds with the SP symbol on it.”

    Sigel also says he has not had a conversation with Jay Z in over two years – but makes it clear that this diss isn’t the end all in the relationship between the rappers, “And don’t get it f***ed up: this ain’t the green light for everybody to start making diss Jay-Z record. I still got love for the n***a. This just me taking my brother out in the yard for 5 minutes” he says, before finishing with a surprising shout out of “Roc-A-Fella for life.”.
