Beanie Sigel appeared on the radio with 50 Cent yesterday (November 3rd) to not only talk about his possible deal with the G-Unit leader but mainly to respond to recent statements made by Jay-Z which questioned why he would bad mouth his former boss. Sigel says that not only did he get his State Property label himself, but Jay-Z did not give it to them. "The issue about the Bentley's, you shot yourself in the foot for that, now let's go to the record label I'm 'supposed' to have," Beans said in an interview. "You didn't give me a record label, all it cost is a couple hundred dollars to search the name, State Property Records, nobody owned it. I think I paid a couple more hundred dollars and I patented the LLC licensing company, so my record [company] cost me like $750 to say on a piece of paper that I owned State Property Records LLC and I did that on my own. You didn't give me that and what artist was on that label? So what did you give me?" [Beanie Sigel Says Jay-Z Lied - Listen Here]
Beanie then goes on to talk about the other issues and accomplishments he has made himself. "The clothing line that I had, I had 20 percent of State Property clothing, it's me, Jay, Dame [Dash] and the two other Russians that had the Rocawear owned State Property because I gave them an idea, pitched it to Dame at the time — [Dame] was taking all the money from Rocawear and putting it into all his little companies, he did the same thing to State Property."
