Def Jam VP of A&R Sha Money XL has revealed that he has kept in contact with Beanie Sigel and is trying to get him ready to put out a new album.
Aside from speaking on his current Def Jam artists, Sha revealed his admiration for Beanie.
“Redman‘s getting ready to deliver. Method Man‘s getting ready to get started. Beanie Sigel, I had a conversation with him,” Sha revealed in an interview. “Hopefully he’ll get back over here. He’s here, but, just really getting in the mind frame like he’s getting ready to put an album out, getting right because he’s the sh*t.” (XXL Mag)
Recently, Sigel spoke on his issues with Jay-Z and issued a threat to Drake.
“Only thing I regret about that Roc-A-Fella sh*t was going at my n*gga Kiss,” Beans said in an interview referencing his 2001 beef with Jadakiss. “I did that sh*t for you n*gga ’cause you were scared. You knew Kiss would have bit that a**. I should pull off my belt and whip that a**. You better watch who you worship, man…I know all that f*ggot sh*t you poppin’ and the little slurs on Drake and them’s records and I’ma tell y’all little motherf*ckers something, y’all keep letting that n*gga get on records and pop sh*t. I’ma start coming at cha’ll little n*ggas. I’ll smack the sh*t outta Drake b*tch a**. All y’all n*ggas, f*ck all y’all. This is Broad Street Bully, B. Sig, I have no problem seeing anybody on site.” (Trinity Entertainment)
He is expected to appear on Game‘s upcoming R.E.D. Album.
Pharrell Williams isn’t the only mixmaster contributing beats to “R.E.D.” Cool and Dre, DJ Khalil and Dr. Dre all lend their production efforts, while Beanie Sigel, Rick Ross, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke make guest appearances. Songs on the album include “It Must Be Me,” which finds Game bragging about the luxuries of his life over an “N.W.A. mixed with an eclectic beat” and “Lost,” which “describes the relationship between my father and I and my sister in depth like I’ve never done before.” (Billboard Biz)
Earlier this year, Sha Money XL spoke with SOHH about working on Juelz Santana‘s new album, Born To Lose, Built To Win.
“He’s touring and getting money,” Sha told SOHH. “He’s getting his money so he’s comfortable, he’s just creating the right music because he’s that next n*gga man. So he’s coming with it. It’s coming this year, we gonna drop this mixtape, The Reagan Era, he’s shooting some crazy videos — they on it right now, heavy, and I support them because he’s that next n*gga. I’ve contributed from records all the way down, man. He gets everything man, from the music to the marketing to the big picture, man. We gotta create stars, I don’t just leave them at the A&R Depot saying, ‘I’m done.’ I take it all the way there. It starts with the music and you know that’s what I do. That’s just one of the things that I’m great at, is the music.” (SOHH)
