AllÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still not well at the Roc.
Last month, South Philly rapper Beanie Siegel talked about the lack of support Roc-A-Fella artists are getting from the label on Angie MartinezÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hot 97 radio show. Yet this time Beans seems to be blaming Jay-Z for the breakdown.
In a recent sit down with G-Unit DJ, Whoo KidÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sirius Satellite show, Beans alluded to a rift with the hip-hop mogul.
“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like everybody got their homie, that dude in their squad thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a rotten mother@#*$er but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s your man, so you cover up his faults,” Beans said. “IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a loyal dude. And its not me pointing a finger at certain individuals or anything, see IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a loyal dude man, [but] not your boys, that sh-tÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crazy.”
Beans said his last album, The Solution, which came out in December, has gotten no support from the label. About his marketing, promotion, touring, radio play “Ã¢â‚¬Â¦man I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what the @#*$Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s going on.”
And according to Beans, label mate Freeway is getting the shaft, too.
“Def Jam sucks!” Whoo Kid proclaimed on the air, after telling beans itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s “Camel hunting season.”
Beans said heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to make a personal trip to Def Jam next week to see what the deal is.
“Somebody gonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ answer me something,” he said. “IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not confused about whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m confused about why itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on.”
FreewayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s feeling just as out of the loop. The State Property rapper also chopped it up with Whoo Kid about his grievances with the label.
When Jay-Z resigned as president of Def Jam, Free said Hov didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even hit him up with the news. Freeway got the memo the way most everybody else did.
“I heard its official, but I got it off the internet though,” Free said. Beans didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get a phone call either.
In the meantime, Beans is taking promotions into his own hands. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s presently working on a mixtape called “True American Gangster.”
