Former Roc-A-Fella artist Memphis Bleek has addressed Beanie Sigel’s recent disses and said he is willing to call a truce with his ex-labelmate.
Despite his offer to sit down with Beans, Bleek doesn’t think Jay-Z is willing to do the same.
“Could it ever be mended? Jay is gone,” Bleek said in an interview. “I could sit down with Beans. You wanna holla with me, he knows how to get in contact with me. I’m out here. Jay’s gone. Ain’t no time to look back. Where [Jay’s] at, no time to look back. If Jay looks back, it’s the back of the G5 [jet], luggage. He’s gone. We don’t need that. Where’s the problem? When [all the Roc-A-Fella artists] signed their release paper and went their separate ways, it was no problem. Now it’s a problem. Why do you need to talk?” (MTV)
Last weekend, Sigel publicly dissed Bleek and Jay at a Philadelphia concert.
“You supposed to pass that Roc when that ball got heavy,” Sigel raps, “Instead you gettin’ picked at half court already — He 45 and playing for the Wizards already — I’m a nightmare, show up in your dreams like Freddy/Sigel, Desert Eagle Arc heavy, already, n*ggas is running scared already/Memph Bleek peed the sheets leave the bed all wetty/Ugh, let’s get it on already — Jeezy blew, everybody trappin’ now/I got caught with a gat, they tried to roof a n*gga, offered me 30 flat, for shootin’ a n*gga, but shorty got caught with some hardware and he home already/Something wrong there, if I don’t see it, I don’t say it/That’s how I play it, I’m just saying what they saying but they scared to say it…” (Mike Tramp TV)
Beans also said he viewed Bleek as sole survivor of the Roc in a past interview.
“I mean to me right now, that’s Jay young boy, that’s his lil’ man,” Beanie said in an interview. “Me, honestly, I think Bleek is happy how things are right now. Because now he really gets to be Jay’s lil’ man and it’s evident, you can see it. It’s like he’s the last one who survived. He weathered the storm but the storm didn’t start with the breakup, the storm started when Beanie Sigel got signed to the Roc. He was coming of age when I came. [Laughs.] He’s still coming of age.” (2DopeBoyz)
Bleek recently explained why he did not understand Sigel’s dispute with Jay.
“That’s my n*gga,” Bleek said in an interview. “I don’t feel no ways [different] as I felt from when he signed to us back in ’99. I feel the same way today. That’s my n*gga. And that’s it. He can say what he wanna say. Him and I know the truth. He know what’s real, and that’s just it. It’s all rap sh*t. Some people do things that you can look at and be like, ‘Yo, why?,’ but at the end of the day you just have to be in they mind frame and figure out – Try to understand what they thinking at that point in time. But like I say, he never stole from me, he never did nothing physically to me, none of my peoples, none of my family. That’s still my brother…I just seen him at the Powerhouse show. Like two days before all of that sh*t popped off, we just had a ill conversation at Powerhouse. It was me, him, all his n*ggas there, my n*ggas, we was kickin’ it, choppin’ it up and nothing ever was said…” (Hip Hop DX)
