Quick News on Beanie Sigel, Wu-Tang Clan and DJ Ron

beanie.jpgIn an interview with MTV News, Beanie Sigel revealed he’s working with R. Kelly for the first single off the Broad Street Bully’s fourth album, The Solution. Beans describes the song, entitled “All of the Above,” as similar to Young Jeezy’s “Go Getta.” “I ain’t even know if he was gonna do it,” Beans told MTV News. “I told him I got this record — ‘cause you know the situation with Jay and him. I was like, ‘If dude gets on this record it’ll be crazy.’ So I sent it out to him, got the response he was gonna do it. [Kells] knocked it out, he sent it back in like three days.” In addition, The Solution will most likely feature guest appearances by Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Raheem DeVaughn and Scarface. “I went out to [Scarface’s] spot, we just was zoning every day,” Sigel said of his collaboration with ‘Face. “Playing golf, just some chill shit. On the last day, he was playing his music, I was playing him music, then we just locked in and did the record. When we together, we knock out stuff right there.” Currently, there is no release date for The Solution.

According to Billboard.com, the Wu-Tang Clan will release their long awaited fifth album, The 8 Diagrams, on November 13 through SRC/Universal Records. “We’re rekindling flames, The RZA told Billboard.com. “There’s a strong potential this could be a long campaign, so this will keep us on the road together, on TV together and keep us working together.” The LP was rumored to be released in October, but is now confirmed to drop in November.

As previously reported on XXLMag.com, Terrance “DJ Bay Bay” Stewart, the disc jockey who influenced Hurricane Chris’ mega-hit “A Bay Bay,” was arrested on August 6 in Shreveport, La. for simple rape and intimidation of a witness. According to the Shreveport Times, Stewart is a DJ at club Kokopelli’s, where a woman was allegedly found lying drunk and unconscious around 4 a.m. on August 2. The Shreveport police believe Stewart and another local DJ, Ronald “DJ Ron” Johnson, were involved in the incident. While authorities arrested Stewart on August 6, they were still looking to apprehend Johnson. On Wednesday, August 8, DJ Ron eventually turned himself in and is currently being held in the Caddo Correctional Center on $250,000 bond. Stewart and Johnson are being accused of assaulting the same woman, according to News 12 KSLA.

    Been waiting for that Beans album. I hope Beans, Jay and Scarface are back on a track together. I doubt if Wayne is on the album. If Beans came at his on teammate on some gay shit I definitely don’t think he’s on there.

    I’m not too excited about another Wu Tang Album. Even with high hopes I doubt the album will be worth a damn. The inner strife and dissolution inside the group just makes this sound like a mistake. Rae, Ghost, Meth, GZA and RZA have all charted separate courses over the years and all have at least hinted that the Wu hasn’t been the same in a long time. I like the Wu but even if RZA did all the tracks (Which I doubt he will!) I have little to no desire to take a $10 gamble on this project. Tell the truth, Beans is a gamble too (His last great project was State Prop 2: Chian Gang – and that was a while ago because his solo joint was a huge disappointment).

    Wu-Tang Clan forever, main!


    Beans is a typical hater. He can’t compete with Kanye and hes upset Kanye is Jay Z’s priority artist. He wants to get back at Jay Z by doing records with R keLLY. Typical. Jay Z should just drop him. So what if Beans disses you on a record. Klein already did it, Dehaven, and Emory might too. Jay you got nothing to lose. Drop the dead weight. Send him back to the shithole from whence he came.
    If you go hollywood. Go all the way.
    Put ya dick in Rhianna’a mouth one last time, kick Beyonce to the curb (put it in her ass one more time like Busta did MS Jones, unless you plan on joining her label.), Go get your son from Trinidad and style on these bitches.

    Yo Vicious,
    Lets wait to hear the product b4 downtalking it yo. 3 out of 4 good albums is not bad fam. You can’t go in expecting “36 Chambers” everytime yo, that is like expecting Jordan to score 50pts. a game. I am psyched and maybe if you make it out to the Rock the Bells Festival, you will be just as psyched
