Weeks after it was reported that Philadelphia, Pennsylvania lyricist Beanie Sigel was released from prison, Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Dame Dash was asked about the rapper during a newly-published interview with Hip Hop Motivation.
Dame was specifically asked about others inquiring about him owing Beanie Sigel money. The rap entrepreneur responded to the inquiries by questioning why a man would ask questions on behalf of another man.
He then revealed that Sigel “isn’t the kind of guy you could rob,” and that he’s willing to sit down and talk to the rapper if he has any concerns about the matter.
“My perspective on anybody asking me about another man is I’m not answering that man because he’s not a man,” Dame said. “If I owe you some money then you can ask me about your paper. But you asking about another dude’s paper doesn’t even make sense. Especially if it’s something that you didn’t hear directly from the other dude to you. Again, I just don’t know how people feel manly enough to ask that question. I don’t understand how a dude could ask about another guy’s money…I’ve never done that. And also Beans isn’t the kind of guy you could rob…If he asked that question that’s a different thing. And him and I can have a talk about it. Other than that, another dude asking me about another dude. Me even answering, I don’t feel like a dude.”
During an interview with the Star & Bucwild Show on Philadelphia’s Power 100.3 in December 2010, Sigel revealed that Dame owed him millions.
“I ain’t loyal to Dame. Dame owe me some money,” he said during the interview. “My own lawyer found about 11-million that Dame stole from me…He filing bankruptcy. I’ll spend a million dollars just to say a person owe me? I have a piece of paper that say he owe me some money. Who wants to go through that?”
