& Beanie Sigel have peacefully resolved their "beef."
Founders ofAllhiphop.com contacted the Hip-Hop Summit
Action Network after hearing Beans talk negatively about
Kiss on Philly radio station Power 99. After being briefed
on the tensions by Allhiphop.com, Russell Simmons then
contacted both artists, inviting them to meet, with
him as the mediator. Instead, the artists decided a
one-on-onemeeting in an undisclosed area of Harlem,
resolving their issues.
apparently began when a writer for The Source magazine
quoted Kiss where he allegedly claimed that
Philly rappers had bitten his style of rhyme. In an
interview with Allhiphop.com, the Ruff Ryder said, That
was the writer twisting the shit around. That was some
real bullshit. Im catching some real flack of
that! I would never say nothing about Philly because
thats where I sell most of my records at.
However, after reading the Source story and also hearing
of the comments, Beans took the diss personally claiming
to be the only person Kiss could be referring to.
thereafter, bootleg versions of Jadakiss Kiss
the Game Goodbye circulated with a song dubbed Here
We Go Again, featuring DMX. In the song, Kiss
quips he stopped eating beef because he ate too
many Bean Macs, referring to Sigel. Sige lthen
responded with an even more vicious diss on the Empire
Strikes Back CD(Roc-a-Fellas first mix CD)
with DJ Envy. His hookless verse included witty, yet
violently laced, rhymes (Ill spark him up,
leave him stiff like that cleaners) aimed at Jadakiss
and any muthafuckin hater that act like
he want to put down paper. Im bout
to sun Kiss like a soda and make J-to-the-Muah
put his lips to his nine and really Kiss The Game Goodbye//Its
funny Jason really think he grimy too and everybody
liked him better in that shiny suit.
less than a few days after the Empire Strikes Back
CD hit the streets, Kiss reply was already
on major radio stations like Power 99 and eventually
on mix CDs like New Yorks DJ Green Lantern.
Some of the lines Kiss said were equally street and
lyrical aswell. "I dont even like you Sigel,
Your flow is all mine so dont bite the hand that
feeds you//MOS DEF,I’ll get someone to bury your carcass,
for a KOOL G and Im not from Rawkus//Im
rhyming on a Disco beat, you a fag, the next rhyme you
kick should be over a Sisqo beat." However, despite
the vile lyrics from both ends, the clash ends as fast
as it began.
suddenly ends a conflict that seemed like it could potentially
become violent, as both Beans and Kiss run with large
crews. Russell Simmons told Allhiphop.com that the Hip-Hop
Summit Action Network would continue to call for peace
in hip hop via Minister Ben Chavis, the director of
the program. Its important for the idiots
to know thebeef is squashed, Russell Simmons said.
