When the Roc broke up, there was an initial scramble to see who would side with whom. When the dust settled, Jay-Z was the one with all the contacts and the label, so understandably, most of the artists went with him. Beans was a little different. He was in jail at the time. When he came home he released one of his best albums, The B.Coming, ont on Toc-A-Fella, but on DDMG (Damon Dash Music Group).
In an interview with MTV, Sigel explained why he was so close to the Dame faction of the breakup:
I didn’t make no choice. When people see I’m with Dame and Biggs, I’m with them together on off days. It ain’t just business with us. I’m chilling with them. I’ve never been around Jay on an off day. It ain’t like I made a choice of running with Dame and Biggs or ‘Dame and Biggs held me down through my whole trial.’ It’s not that. I would be a sucker if I said I [signed with the Damon Dash Music Group] because they did that for me. It’s love. You see how we chillin’ now, this ain’t about no business.
They must have patched things up along the way because eventually Beans found himself back in the house of Hov. That didn’t last long as last year after a well placed battery in the back, Sigel found himself on the other side, launching diss records with varying degrees of success. While the public could care less (it seems Jay-Z is beyond reproach these days), Hip-Hop wants to know the behind-the-scenes goings on. So the folks at ForbezDVD got at Jigga’s right hand, Bleek to ask about the beef. And then they went to Sigel. Here’s what ensued. Shout to Doggie Diamondz and M.Reck.
