Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Beanie Sigel Save Kanye West From Chain Snatching Goons?

According to Beanie Sigel, Kanye West almost got his Roc-A-Fella “chain tooken” from a gang of goons a few years back. In an interview with Vlad TV, the Philly bred rapper recalls a story from back in his Roc-A-Fella days, when he had to come to the aid of Yeezy after a stand-off with some goons at a diner.

According to Beanie’s recollection of the story, Kanye was at a diner with a few of his friends, when some bold goons pulled up their chairs to his table and sat down with the Chi-town rapper. The goons were threatening Kanye and implied that they were going to steal his jewelery as soon as he stepped foot outside of the diner. Yeezy took to his cell phone and called Beanie Sigel over to help handle the situation. Check out how Beanie tells the story below:

“He [Kanye] felt threatened. Nothing was going to go down – not while I was there. Nothing was going to happen to him…[Kanye] wasn’t being paranoid; they had chairs pulled up to his table where he was eating at with his friends, and they wasn’t eating…it was real. They’re plates of food was cold; they ate only a couple of bites, and it was just like a wait off.”

“Llike, ‘Hurry up, and would you come out here?’ It was going down. So I got there and I asked Kanye, ‘Yo, do you know this guy right here?’ He was like, ‘Nah,’ and I just pulled the charm from [under] him, and Kanye had his jewelry tucked in on him, and I was like, ‘Take your chain out’ – that was like a badge, that Roc-a-Fella chain…[the goons took] as they should a little more than a few steps [back].”

    Hood is Hood. Real niggas recognize real niggas. KW ain’t hood enough

    • churchboy2

      As if being more “hood” is a natural aspiration, or some badge of honor to wear…
      Now if Kanye was pretending to be hood [cough* Drake* cough], then maybe you could claim that he was not ” a real n*gga” like you say, but I don’t recall Kanye being anything but himself.
      Hate the dude all you want, but he’s been nothing else but himself since day one.

  • game213

    This is old as hell. but still funny though, “the food was cold” lol
    Those robbers are wack though why the hell would they sit and wait for kanye at his table to rob him, like kanye is actually going to eat up quick and go outside to get robbed lol, if that nigga was eating rice he probly ate it one grain at a time to stall them niggas lol. but If they really wanted his chain they should have just waited outside for him and robbed him then

  • Tony G.

    as soon as I saw the headline I knew this was Sydney….first off this is a “rumor” section…this is a fact that happened eons ago…slow day in the office I see..

  • WillVetterGoodin

    These lames and their chains…SMH, how bout give back to the community or to charity instead of buying a chain that some 6 year old in another country spent half of his life digging out diamonds for….LAMES. These kids blood is on your chains.

    whatever……… a one one one fight…………beans would get his shit rocked by most men…………nobody every said kanye was a tough guy………beans might have “friends” or be known to tote a gun or whatever…………but hes not a tough guy either……..hes a fat, slow, no muscle having nigga that would get the living shit beat outta him in a fight

    • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      regardless of how slow he may have become he showed up to confront those who were after his peeps. when you get a chance make a video of you rocking the shit out of beans like most men, so we can see its not just internet talk.
