50, Beanie Track 'I Go Off' Debuts
Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel unveiled his brand new collaboration G-Unit CEO 50 Cent today, Friday the 13th (November 13).
50 Cents website Thisis50.com posted a snippet of the highly anticipated collaboration track I Go Off earlier this week, while the full version debuted on Cosmic Kevs show on Power 99FM in Philadelphia this morning (November 13).
Beanie Sigel and 50 Cent announced a partnership during a promotional film screening for 50 Cents directorial debut, Before I Self Destruct.
The new track I Go Off is the latest chapter in 50 Cent and Beanie Sigels ongoing war of words with rapper Jay-Z.
While Sigel doesnt mention Jay-Z by name on his verse, 50 Cent takes the Rocs CEO head on at the end of the verse.
You changed man. You let the money change you Jay..yous a pass the Grey Poupon n***a. N***a feed the wolves or the wolves eat you. Eat your ass alive."
Tensions have existed between Jay-Z and 50 Cent, who has taken several shots at Jay-Z in interview over the past month, in addition to poking fun at him in his video Flight 187.
Beanie Sigels issues with Jay-Z are the result of the fallout caused by the break up of Hip-Hop label Roc-A-Fella Records, which at one point featured Philly rappers like Freeway, Chris and Neef, Oshino and Sparks and Peedi Crakk.
On the track What You Talkin Bout (I Ain't Your Average Cat)," Sigel accused Jay-Z of underpaying Roc-A-Fellas top artists, in addition to abandoning him and acts that were signed to the label.
Jay-Z replied to Sigels diss record during a Canadian press conference with larueduhiphop.com.
What people choose to do when they obtain that type of success, at some point you gotta look in the mirror and look at yourself, Jay stated. Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label and a clothing line and never went platinum. Ever. I dont know in the history of rap has anyone done so much with so little. So, I dont know what more can you do for a person at that point. A record deal thats normal. A record label and a clothing line. If thats not pushing the person s**t.
Sigel denied Jay-Zs implication that Roc-A-Fella provided him with anything other than a record deal.
Its not like you helped me attain all this wealth and gave me the two Bentleys. You didnt give me a record label, Sigel told Mikey Dread and Uncle O during a screening in Philadelphia for 50 Cent's film Before I Self Destruct.
It only cost a couple hundred dollars to search the name State Property Records, nobody owned it; I think I paid another couple hundred dollars and I patented the LLC, Sigel retorted. So my record label only cost me $750, to say on a piece of paper that I own State Property Records, LLC. I did that on my own, you didnt give me that. And what artists was on that label?
50 Cents new album Before I Self Destruct is due in stores on November 17.
Beanie Sigels status as an official G-Unit artist could not be confirmed at press time.
