Former Roc-A-Fella Records rapper Beanie Sigel is refuting Memphis Bleek‘s recent remarks about trying to reach out to him and said despite the claim, there have been no attempts.
Although Sigel promises there are no active issues toward Bleek, he details how close of a bond they once held.
“Memphis Bleek ain’t never reach out to me or try to reach out to me. I brought Memphis Bleek to my neighborhood. Memphis Bleek been to my mother’s house. He ate from my mother’s food. So, if he wanted to reach out to me, I ain’t a hard person to find. I ain’t a hard person to find at all. But, I don’t have no gripe with Bleek. There’s no gripe with Bleek. That’s like my brother. We came into the game together. We grew up together in the music business. I don’t have no gripe with him.” (XXL Mag)
Earlier this week, Bleek said he had tried to contact Beans and other former Roc-A-Fella rappers.
“I speak to Young Chris, I speak to Freeway here and there,” Bleek revealed on “RapFix Live.” “I was in touch with Neef Buck not too long ago. I tried to reach out to [Beanie Sigel], but you know Beans got a lot of personal things he’s dealing with. But at the end of the day, I’ma say it and you hear the words from my mouth: Them is all my dudes. No matter what went down, we fam. We came up together. It’s almost like a cousin. You and your cousin can fight, but at the end of the day, y’all still family.” (MTV)
In 2010, the Brooklyn rapper weighed in on Sigel’s past issues toward Jay.
“Could it ever be mended? Jay is gone,” Bleek said in an interview. “I could sit down with Beans. You wanna holla with me, he knows how to get in contact with me. I’m out here. Jay’s gone. Ain’t no time to look back. Where [Jay’s] at, no time to look back. If Jay looks back, it’s the back of the G5 [jet], luggage. He’s gone. We don’t need that. Where’s the problem? When [all the Roc-A-Fella artists] signed their release paper and went their separate ways, it was no problem. Now it’s a problem. Why do you need to talk?” (MTV)
Beans previously taunted Bleek’s position considering his relationship to Jigga.
“I mean to me right now, that’s Jay young boy, that’s his lil’ man,” Beanie said in an interview. “Me, honestly, I think Bleek is happy how things are right now. Because now he really gets to be Jay’s lil’ man and it’s evident, you can see it. It’s like he’s the last one who survived. He weathered the storm but the storm didn’t start with the breakup, the storm started when Beanie Sigel got signed to the Roc. He was coming of age when I came. [Laughs.] He’s still coming of age.” (2DopeBoyz)
