- When Flirting Increases Loyalty
Whatever happened to Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek and that rapper, Freeway?
I witnessed the entire Roc A Fella Records in concert while in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Why did Jay Z become a multi million dollar mogul and his entire team were left to fend for themselves?
It was obvious Beanie Sigel took the Roc split the hardest.
He was suffering mentally, financially, and professionally, but I remained his fan.
I wanted to believe that Sigel’s career and his financial predicament would eventually change and by the Grace Of God, he would be able to land on his feet again.
It is tough world, when you are in the only girl in your neighborhood, repping for “Beans!”
I wanted him back in the forefront of Philadelphia rappers,but it never happened that way…
When I hear Meek Mill and others pay homage to the Philly rap elite that paved the way, most people think of the rapper Cassidy, but the first MC’s that come to my mind are Beanie Sigel and Freeway.
Those are the ones that flourished and we must remember Peedi Crack who I assumed also,would be doing big things for his town.
Why wouldn’t they be able to work together and make their town proud again?
I am not trying to be insensitive as Cam’ron in “Paid In Full” when he said, “People get shot every day.” but truthfully we all know “Rappers get locked up every day.”
Now Beanie Sigel is at a halfway house and now he can concentrate on bringing money and his talent to the game while getting his life back in order.
I still believe that Jay-Z could have tossed Beanie a million dollars, and let by bygones be bygones.
Some people will argue about them having beef.
Let’s be truthful, if you are struggling and you in your heart know that you helped someone’s empire and they gave you the cold shoulder, you wouldn’t be a little pissed off?
If I saw someone I was beefing with 2 years from now starving or about to get their house or car repossessed, no doubt I would help even if they called me every name in the world.
I would do it for their children, and for the friendship we once had, that we let slip away for whatever the reason.
That doesn’t mean we would be friends again, but out of humanity.
You should never forget who held you down.
I know it has to be crazy one minute to have thoughts of millions and then can’t find anyone to let you have $50.00 dollars.
Beanie needed someone.
Why didn’t they stop him from serving time?
They all could have helped.
Loyalty never dies.
Beanie Sigel will be in a halfway house until Decemeber 2014.
This is the time for the old “ROC BOYZ” to squash that beef and also regain their empire with their families.
They don’t have a reliable platform to present their music.
Many Hip Hop fans have asked,”Why doesn’t Jay Z,still show love to men that were part of his team. ”
Roc A Fella Records had a Hip Hop Renaissance but money and brothers losing loyalty will destroy everyone you are riding with, and that sadly happened to Beanie, and the rest of the team.
Get them all back in the studio.
Freeway is one of the best lyricist out here, period
He needs that door opened and Jay Z could open it with his eyes closed.
It would not move a piece of lint in his million dollar pockets.
They need you Jay Z, Beanie needs you and it is time to squash the beef and relive hip hop history, and musical beats that were the ROC’s trademark. Don’t understand what happened to the Roc, everyone has their own story?
I guess it depends on who you ask, when I witnessed Beanie Sigel during an interview it was so embarrassing that he was so high, his freestyle was barely audible and you could tell he was really going through some mess.
How could Beanie Sigel not be able to pay income on a million dollars?
That made absolutely no sense, he was a part of Jay Z’s musical team, not his janitorial team!
They all were suppose to be passed the million dollar mark as a team.
Beanie Sigel knew his destiny and realized he was facing sentence alone, maybe that is when he was just trying to survive.
He knew it absolutely nothing he could financially do, so he just let it happen.
Someone could have done something,when he was drowning in debt.
Your life becomes hectic and you are unsure of who you can trust and who will betray you.
In the end it seems no one in the Roc A Fella Records was worth the trust.
Now bring the sound back, let those men have a chance to make music.
Jay Z, you could make that happened in your sleep.
We can hold on to beef so damn long, until they are gone and then it is too late.
“Webbie complained that “the media” never asks him “smart” questions, so we here at OZONE Magazine grilled him on Occupy Wall Street, the importance of voting, Obama’s approval rating, Katrina recovery, and 9/11 conspiracies. We were then kicked out of Wal-Mart .” OZONE MAGAZINE
AVANT GARDE WEBBIE:
When real life footage surfaced of the last hours of Mike Brown’s death it wasn’t intended to relieve some of the guilt from the Ferguson police, that has captured many views on YouTube and the news in general, thanks to the race barrier in Ferguson.
Did we “jump the gun” and paint someone as a martyr when that was the farthest thing from the truth?
That is what Ferguson Police wanted you to believe, about Mike Brown.
Yes, if it is him in the video that was horrible and bully like behavior,of the store owner and the altercation was disrespectful, but that is no reason victim Mike Brown lost his life that day.
The police officer had no idea of the earlier altercation.
However, even with the store footage included,that doesn’t account for an unarmed man with his hands in the air surrendering, that somehow ended up laying cold and still in the morgue.
You don’t come back from physical death, but this death just refutes everything we are taught.
Mike will remain here in spirit, Was Mike Brown a bully who used his weight and frightening demeanor to take advantage of that store robbery?
Does it matter now?
Why paint a negative picture, of the victim?
The police did the exact thing to Emmett Till, they said he was boisterous “colored” boy. He deserved his lynching because he was a prankster that didn’t demonstrate reverence for the rules of that segregated south. His life expired because he ALLEGEDLY was seen whistling at a white woman.
Now we live in a world were racism comes with a fake smile, and the greater need to watch you suffer and watch you fail.
The worst part about Mike Browns’ death is that now Ferguson Police are now threatening the press and using scare tactics and physical violence because of their miscarriage of justice. They want to go back to the days of Jim Crow, isolated activities, and back to their old small town ways.
Don’t believe that anything among the police, and protestors in Ferguson is anywhere near peaceful.
It is a falsehood and obvious scam to remove some of the heat off of the tragic event, that Ferguson police are responsible for that changed their town forever.
It is even more animosity and division currently in Ferguson than it was on the day of the murder.
I am not afraid to admit I was disappointed to watch that footage of Mike in that store, but I still stand behind his family and the world that obviously are emotionally distraught by the injustice of the inequality.
Inequality could change the mind of some protestors and make them ashamed of speaking up for Micheal, but don’t be fooled it is nothing but propaganda to instill more sympathy for the killer of Mike Brown.
That video in the store was released the exact time, the killer’s name was revealed.
They ain’t sorry for shit!
The cops wanted to portray the image of a ruthless negro that deserved his own inhumane death, like he was an animal.
No one deserved that death.
Why is it such a reality to some that bigots still exist and your pain and struggle still must go on, no matter how much ignorance and deceit was aimed at you to destroy your mind state and your core ideas? People are prejudiced because someone for their own short comings or failure in the human race. Excuses also turn people into racist.
Fight for justice.
Oh, yeah Arrest Darryl Wilson.
WE ALL DESERVE TO BE TREATED RIGHT!
DON’T LET SOME BULLY DEMEAN YOU WHEN YOU DON’T DESERVE IT!
In this life,it is tragic when you can still be murdered by surrendering.
Can you blame the next teenage boy that decides to resist arrest, or run from the police in Ferguson?
Apparently in this small segregated town it is safer to take your chances and break the law.
The Ferguson police have proven to the world, and to Mike Brown that they will not protect you.
Taylor Swift Is Not The Next Paula Deen!
Swifter was just expressing her country yodeling form of admiration, for the culture, and denim.
Her video is not racist; it is more of a good old fashion shuck n jive.
She could have showed up dressed inappropriately with ratchet cut offs and stereotypical rap video vixens…
Wait she did…
Taylor is an innocent angel who has had 92 boyfriends since entertainment world and became country music’s mainstream darling. She is not doing a remix on a plantation; this style is just flattery to the ignorance.
Master Swift, is a nice fine Master….
She is swift with the lamp at night, even if she knows knowledge leads to freedom. She gives her back up dancers Swift notes, the segregated version of Cliff notes.
Leave Taylor alone.
She can not help that she is bored with country music, and dignity.
After the video shoot, her back ground dancers were invited to a catered dinner with field peas(that I helped pick), hush puppies, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now Flounder” and shrimps that had to wade in the water.
