In a new interview, Peedi Peedi reflected on the now-infamous 2001 lyrical feud and said State Property group members helped pen some Beans lines.
“It’s kinda like a tie to me. I never felt like nobody had went over – if you had asked me about the Nas and Jay [Z] joint, I think Nas murdered him. With the Kiss and Beans joint, I never felt like somebody did better than the other. I just seen them both going hard and it was entertaining to me and it was dope. Yeah. I think Oschino [Sparks] and [Young] Chris had wrote that with him too. Yeah. They all wrote it together. Ask Oschino, he knows better than me. They did write that sh*t. I remember. They wrote it together. I’m sure Mac had took part in it but I definitely know that Chris did – n*ggas definitely chimed in with certain little punches.” (Doggie Diamonds TV)
Back in 2012, Jada reflected on the now-classic hip-hop battle.
“It was a shock for me, it was startling for me,” ‘Kiss said of the 2001 battle between him and Sigel, which many agree ended in a draw. Neither of the MCs can recall exactly how the war of words started, but before either of the lyricists started to call each other out by name, things started off very subliminal. “My first car was a 430 AMG Benz and on his first single he said ‘You got the 430, small wheels,’ ” ‘Kiss remembered of the lyric from Beanie’s “Mack B*tch,” the first single from his 2001 album The Reason. At the time, the Mercedes-Benz 430 was a popular model, but after Sigel dismissed the vehicle type ‘Kiss wondered to himself if the then Roc-A-Fella rapper was throwing a shot. “He probably didn’t mean it for me, but I was like, ‘I gotta get rid of this little car, jump into something bigger,’ ” Jada said, laughing with his patented squeal.

Back in 2010, LOX’s Sheek Louch talked to SOHH about moving past the feud and befriending Sigel.
“I’m a Beanie Sigel fan,” Sheek added. “That’s my n*gga. He’s dope. We was in the hood one time. He comes up and checks on me out of nowhere and I come out to Philly and mess with him and all that. Beans is my man. A hundred. He’s been my man for a long time. We got history too. We were going at each other during the [Roc-A-Fella versus Ruff Ryders feud]. But all of that has been dead. He would really come in to the hood and go to our little parties and mess with us. I really wanted him on Donnie G but I think [he was locked up].” (SOHH)
Beans previously revealed his displeasure in going at Kiss during his run at Roc-A-Fella Records.
“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…” (Trinity Entertainment)
