XXclusive: New Beanie Sigel CD is “Like a Mixtape,” Says Label, Full-Length With Freeway in the Works
News recently hit the ‘net that Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel is gearing up for a new release in September, catching fans by surprise, as it had little promotion. While the project is new, XXLMag.com has learned that the CD, titled The Broad Street Bully, is not an official studio album.
XXL caught up with Siccness Records, the independent label in which the disc will be released, to find out more about the LP. “It’s like a mixtape,” Nemo Mitchell, the CEO of the company said. “[It contains] some stuff that was on his MySpace [page] that people could download but it’s new material too.” When asked who will be featured on the project Nemo replied, “Young Chris, Freeway, Omillio Sparks and a new guy, Beans’s artist Murder Mule.”
In addition to the street disc, Nemo says that Beans is currently working on a full-length album with his State Property partner-in-rhyme, Freeway. The MC is reportedly in talks with EMI to put out the disc.
