After firing shots at former affiliate Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel has recognized the errors of his ways. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native has publicly apologized to Hov for badmouthing him in the press, speaking to XXLMag.com about his past mistakes.
“What Mike Epps say? ‘Gangstas fuck up too,’” he said. “Whatever I felt this dude Jay did wrong to me, it can’t outweigh the one thing he did do for me – he gave me an opportunity. Dude gave me an opportunity. A lot of people don’t get opportunities. He gave me that. That outweighs everything. I need that in black and white. I got caught in the moment and put my feelings out there. I should have never done that.”
Beans apparently let his situation with Roc-A-Fella get under his skin, prompting him to record an entire album’s worth of disses towards The Roc that will never see the light of day. “I was explaining the whole Roc-A-Fella shit and a lot of feelings were going to get hurt,” B. Sig said. “I was airing shit out. Just the homies could listen to that when they come into the studio. I couldn’t put that out. It wouldn’t sit right with me.”
Their beef publicly emerged in October 2009 after Beans dissed Hov during a concert. Shortly thereafter, he released a diss track titled “What You Talkin Bout,” slandering Jigga in the press since then.
