While the beef between rappers Beanie Sigel and Jadakiss was one of the more notorious rivalries in Hip Hop, the two rappers have clearly moved past their issues as they joked about their former beef during an episode of MTV’s Rap Fix Live.
The interview was initially between Sigel and host Sway, but just minutes into the interview Jadakiss was brought out for a surprise cameo. After being joined by Jada, Sigel went on to explain that the beef started due to shots the rapper began to throw at someone on his team.
“I’m a rapper. I read between the lines,” Sigel explained in a video posted on XXLmag.com. “I was hearing a couple of little shots that somebody on my team was throwing out. And I heard a couple come back. And then I’m like, ‘Yo you wanna respond to that?’ So as a team player you know you gotta go out. It’s like if you ain’t gonna fight him I got him.”
Jadakiss chimed in as he spoke on one particular shot from Sigel, a line in which he thought his car was being called out.
“It’s a lot of them,” said Jadakiss when asked which line from Sigel stood out the most. “I know one that really like ‘wow.’ My first car was a 430 Benz AMG and on his first single he said, ‘You got the 430, small wheels.’ He probably didn’t even mean it for me, but I’m like ‘I gotta get rid of this little car.’”
The beef between the two rappers started in 2001 and continued for years before coming to an official close at Sigel’s “Brotherly Love Concert” in Philadelphia.
