In a recent interview, Styles P reminisced about past feuds with other rappers. This allowed Styles to discuss the Death Row and Bad Boy beef, The LOX’s on-wax feud with G-Unit and their war of words with Roc-A-Fella and Beanie Sigel.
When discussing the Bad Boy/Death Row feud, Styles also explained that he does not see this type of beef happening today.
“I don’t know who killed [Notorious B.I.G.] and I don’t know who killed [Tupac]. No one does. So I can’t really say exactly where it come from or who was involved or not involved at the end of the day. I can say it’s a sad thing that both sides was beefin’ and death ended up occurring,” Styles shared with VladTV. “I don’t want to see any more beefs escalate to that point but I don’t think we’re at a point in this day and age of music where these artists have that kind of background or the kind of people from that background around them that’s really livin’ that, that wants to put that in jeopardy. I just really don’t see it. I’m just being honest with you.”
While Styles said he wouldn’t jump into beefs as quickly anymore, he also explained past beefs that The LOX had with G-Unit and Roc-A-Fella.
“[With] 50, actually, that was actually good for us. Like with Beanie, Beanie’s my man, too. That’s my homeboy. We became cool. That was more personal. Somebody could’ve died. We didn’t know 50. We didn’t know [Lloyd] Banks. We didn’t know [Tony] Yayo. We didn’t have no nothin’ for them. We got bars. We could do this shit all day. This is what we do. This is what we’re built for. If anything else happens out of it, fuck it, whatever. It was still good for us.  had millions at that time. You a multimillionaire. You don’t come down to the underdog’s level. So for us, it was like, ‘Alright, we’re gonna use this to show we got bars.’ I don’t think, unless they would’ve did something, we would’ve even cared because we would’ve seen them. We wasn’t gonna risk ourselves, risk our freedom, risk our lives, unless they felt like that and they wanted to do that. But at the time with Sigel and them, that was a different story. That could’ve really escalated into something nasty because it was more like, ‘I know you. I met you. I spoke to you. We’ve done things before. It’s more disrespect taken personally.”

Since then, as Styles noted, Beanie Sigel and The LOX have reconciled differences. Just last year, Jadakiss and Beanie Sigel made amends on MTV’s RapFix. In the interview, they both shared that they had respect for one another and they explained they even have plans to collaborate. That interview can be viewed below.
