The internet is at a buzz. Jay-Z provided a response to Beanie Sigel's honest rant regarding Jay-Z's self centered business moves:
"Well, Beanie Sigel, at the time — and you can look it up if you like, just to be honest — was driving two Bentleys. I don't know how; it's impossible to drive two cars at one time. With his momma in the sticks and selling 800,000 records, I don't know what more you can do for somebody. What people choose to do when they attain of success ... at some point you have to look in the mirror, and look at yourself. Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label, and a clothing line — and never went platinum, ever. I don't know in the history of rap has anyone done so much with so little. I don't even know what more can you do for a person at that point. A record deal, that's normal. A record label and a clothing line? If that's not pushing a person, sh-- ..."
Jay-Z how many cars do you have parked in your drive way - that - you don't drive?

"so I gave him a check for $30K and I'm paying a car not for 2200 a month, 3 months later I was like Biggs, what you gon do with that car, let me take that note over, I wanna give it to my mom... 4 months later is was my birtday, we was at the studio, my mom cooked food for everybody, Dame, Jay, everybody, they ate and my mom said let me get the keys to your car, I wanna go downstairs and do something before I leave, but she left with the car. So I'm like, yo, she took the car and Biggs said 'Happy Birthday' just pay the note.. so the issue about the Bentleys, you shot yourself in the foot with that
Now, the record label, you didn't give me a record label, all I did was spend a couple hundred dollars to search the name state property records... I think I paid a couple hundred more dollars for the LLC to license the company, 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, and what artist was on state property records, so what did you give me
The clothing line I had 20% of state property clothing, It was Me, Jay, Dame and the 2 other Russians that owned Roc-A-Wear owned state property, cuz I gave them an idea, pitched it to Dame at the time, cuz I saw him drawing close to me when him and Jay was going through they thing
You didn't give me the movie, it was a guy from Philly who had the script, I didn't have the money, to put out a movie, I bought him up to Rocafella... we had to switch it up, because he was talking about JBM... you didn't give me the movie, I gave you a script and I didn't make no money off of that. And even on the clothing line... the same reason why you and dame broke up, cuz he was taking all the money from Rocafella and putting it into his other businesses is the same thing he did to State property..."
Jay-Z sure know how to rob Peter to pay Paul and build upon his street credibility in the process...
