We Off That: Most Likely Jay-Z Will Not Be Reconciling With Beanie Sigel, Plus He Speaks On Touring & ‘Watch The Throne 2’
Philly’s washed up rapper Beanie Sigel was once signed to Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records in the late 90’s-early 2000’s. For unknown reasons Sigel was dropped from Roc-A-Fella and basically left for dead (without a record deal), which led to Sigel recording diss songs aimed at Jay-Z. However, my idol Jay-Z never replied because Sigel is not on his level. Rolling Stone recently caught up with Jay-Z and asked him if it’s possible that he will reconcile with Sigel during his “Made In America” Music Festival in Philly at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park on September 1 and 2. Jay-Z also spoke about the European leg of his ‘Watch The Throne’ tour with Kanye West and Watch The Throne 2. Below are some excerpts:
In 2005, you performed the second “I Declare War” concert in Philadelphia, ending your feud with Nas. Is there any chance of you doing the same thing in September and reconciling with Beanie? It’s the city of brotherly love, after all.
Um, I dunno. You know, I haven’t spoken to Beanie, so I don’t know how that plays out. It’s kinda, you know. And I’m going on tour tomorrow, to Europe, so I don’t know how that works.
What new things are you bringing to the European tour, besides converters for the outlets?
I don’t know. I just thought about the flag. It’s a major part of the show. We just gonna have to drop the flag everywhere. Everyone has to know we’re from America – I hope no one boos us.
There are all of these rumors flying around for who you’re working with on Watch the Throne 2. The name Kanye West keeps coming up. How is it different working together in 2012 as opposed to the last go-round?
I don’t know. We haven’t actually started working on Watch the Throne 2 yet; I had to put that to the side. I had a little interruption on January 7th.
That whole thing.
Yeah, that whole thing. And Kanye’s touring, working on G.O.O.D. Music – which I haven’t heard, but I heard it’s great.
