Happy Birthday Beans: 21 Gun Salute To Beanie Sigel

The Roots An’Nem Introduce Sigel To The World

Beanie Sigel’s appearance on The Roots “Adrenaline” is one of the first moments that B. Sigel earned a reputation for hopping on tracks and drawing his line in the sand. The product of tagging along to a Roots jam session, Beans kicked in doors and stole bricks on the track co-produced by Scott Storch, upstaging everyone else on the song. It was recorded before he even signed to the Roc, but wasn’t released until after he began making a name for himself at the house Jay, Dame and Biggs built.

    Sig is one of the greatest spitters to do it. Pub Enemy#1 is one of the greatest mixtapes ever made. He earned a permanent spot in true hiphop fans hearts from that ROC generation. We’ll be waiting for him to get out, and another classic to drop.

    Record Label CEO, owned clothing line, & artist. Was close to Jay Z & renting Bentleys while living in an apartment. Probably the worst when it came business acumen & humility. No wonder this fool’s locked up. Happy Birthday you bum. I’ll buy you some powdered soap for the showers. Don’t drop it.
