Fabolous, Just Blaze, Lil Cease and more have shared their mixed reactions to Beanie Sigel's unexpected "Average Cat" diss record which is directed at Jay-Z.
Fabolous, who has close ties to Hov, explained his position on the former labelmate's relationship.
"I jus heard a JayZ diss record by Beanie Siegel..," Fab wrote Friday (October 30). "That's ill to me.. And the record is hard! Never thought i would hear a JayZ diss song by Beanie Siegel....WOW..jus wow.. (Affion Crockett chris brown on larry king impression voice) To me its disappointing, i hate 2 c family fight.. But i dont know either side of the story.. So im neutral & enjoyin the music, as u should i made JayZ & Beanie Siegel a trending topic not even tryin to.. SMH...lol..i hate hip hop family splits & beef's... the Cam vs. Jim & Juelz, the Cash Money vs. Juve, B.G. & Turk.. Dr. Dre vs. Snoop... all bad." (Fabolous' Twitter)
Roc-A-Fella hitmaker Just Blaze also displayed his shock upon hearing the record.
"first the fat boys break up.. cant believe what i'm listening to. i cant deal with this...gonna skip town for a minute." (Just Blaze's Twitter)
New York rapper Lil Cease felt the diss record was also unexpected.

(Lil Cease's Twitter)
Radio personality DJ Envy attempted to speculate on why the diss was made.
"D*mn 2 hear that jz n beans beef...really upsets me..money always destroys friendships...do yall still have da same friends from childhood When u are makin money, your freinds motives usally change...Nah no friends from childhood, when people start counting ur money, ur cars ur stuff bestfriends become strangers...So learned 2 move dolo When every1 is making money...u buy and investing in houses...and they are buying sneakers and cars...4yrs later they are broke and upset and the reason I know so well because this happen 2 me so many time..." (DJ Envy's Twitter)
Hours after its release, Beans addressed the record in an interview Friday (October 30) morning.
"I'm not really dissing Jay, there's certain parts in there where my emotions [take over]," Beans explained in an interview with radio personality Charlamagne Tha God. "I'm a rapper, I listened to the Blueprint 3 album, I heard things in there where he was taking shots at people but a lot of things were directed at people...I think my feet was meant for a couple of 'em...Collectively, you gotta understand, people like Peedi Crakk did some unadvised things like make mixtapes called Camel Hunting Season...It's the Roc as a whole -- but when he says lines like 'I heated up the Roc already, so why can't y'all get hot already' -- when you listen to them lines, those are those lines that I know as a rapper, because I know what he do...I know when he's slick on records."
