Did Meek Mill Just Expose Beanie Sigel On Instagram?

MMG And Rick Ross Visit BET's '106 & Park'

Meek Mill has shared his response to Beanie Sigel‘s criticism – and it’s brutal.

After Beanie claimed to help Meek write his viral Game diss, one of Meek’s crew members knocked Beanie out – and the rest is history. Following the altercation, Beanie hit up Taxstone’s podcast to discuss all things Meek, including the K.O., his beef with Drake, and his alleged loss of support in Philly.

After Beanie spoke his piece, Meek shared a scathing text, which we’re guessing is from Beanie, on Instagram. If it is a message from Beanie prior to their beef breaking out, much of what he had to say on Tax Season is null and void.

“ONE MIN THEY TALKING LIKE THIS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS THEN THEY TALKING LIKE THAT?,” Meek wrote in the caption that followed. In the text, shots were also sent at young Philly artist Lil Uzi Vert.

Take a look at the text below. And to think it all started over Sean Kingston getting his jewelry snatched

Beanie Sigel Opens Up About Getting Knocked Out & The Real Reason Meek Mill Is Mad At Drake

Beanie Sigel Photo Call

Beanie Sigel went from laying super low to making headlines almost every day this week thanks to The Game and Meek Mill‘s beef.

After a video surfaced on Monday of the legendary emcee getting knocked out by a member of Meek Mill’s crew, Beans is finally opening up to clear the air. The Philly king stopped by Taxstone‘s podcast and talked about the knock-out and why Meek Mill is really mad at Drake.


After getting himself involved in the Game beef by claiming he was ghostwriting for Meek, Beanie was jumped by Meek Mill’s friend Teefy Bey at a Philly show.

He told Tax, “Wasn’t nothing straight up in front of me. Let’s keep it 100. The people who got the full tape, show it. It’s me and three other n**as around me that probably no bigger than 5’2. You got a 6’4, 300-something pound n**ga who front lining for [Meek].”

Beanie said that he thought about talking to Meek but realized, “He’s never going to listen. He’s on his high horse. He didn’t fall yet. He don’t know that the same people you see going up, is the same people you see coming down.”

As for why Meek started beef with Drake, Beanie Sigel believes that it has more to do with Meek’s girl and Drake’s labelmate Nicki Minaj, than it has to do with ghostwriting:


“So what’s the real reason why [Meek] was mad at Drake?” asked Beanie. “In my point of view? You was laying in the bed one night, you rolled over and you looked at her and you asked her, ‘You f*ck that n*gga?’ And she ain’t answer you in the way you wanted to.”

Taxstone revealed he originally planned to just have DJ Self come on the podcast, but Beanie Sigel called and said he had to get something off his chest. Check out the full episode here.

Beanie Sigel Says He Helped Meek Mill With His Diss Track Towards The Game

50 Cent In Concert - November 23, 2009

The feud between The Game and Meek Mill seems to get more complicated by the day – especially now that Beanie Sigel is in the mix. Let’s get ya’ll up to speed, shall we?

Beanie Sigel emerged from a long hiatus to aid his hometown buddy Meek Mill in a diss track “Ooouuu”, a direct response to The Game’s diss “92 Bars.” Meek posted an Instagram video of himself and Beanie in the studio, further agitating The Game and stirring the pot that, at the time, was just a war of words. But then, things suddenly got physical.

The Game recently hopped on social media claiming that Meek Mill (or members of the Dreamchasers crew) beat up Beanie this past Friday after The Bad Boy Reunion tour show in Philly, during which Beanie declared himself “the real king of Philly.” Those words apparently  rubbed Meek the wrong way, and now a new recording from a Beanie Sigel interview makes its clear why the two Philly emcees are now at odds.

“He didn’t say nothin’ to get me on the track,” says Sigel of the collaboration on ‘OOOUUU’. “I just happened to come in the studio, so I just was helping him out with some lyrics, and the situation kind of played out like it did.” When asked to clarify the degree of ‘helping’ he did, Beanie slightly backtracks.  “I don’t want to put that out there like that and, you know, discredit nobody for their skills or nothin’.” Beanie then goes on to say that in reality, he has nothing against The Game, and that the two have a “great relationship.”

This is a rather ironic revelation, given how vocal Meek Mill has been towards ghostwriting in rap. It will be very interesting to see how this 3-way beef plays out.

Listen to the full interview below:

Did Beanie Sigel Write Meek Mill’s Diss Track Lyrics? [EXCLUSIVE AUDIO]


Beanie Sigel 'Lyrics N Hues #3'

While on the phone with Beanie Sigel who’s in town for a performance filling in for Shawty Lo who lost his life in a fatal car accident earlier this week, I had to touch on this beef between Meek Mill and The Game. If you’ve been following the drama, you might recall Game dropping that “92 Bars” diss track towards Meek; Milly returned the jab with his “Ooouu” diss featuring Beanie Sigel.

How did Beans become a part of this drama he was never even named in? Did Meek ask him to hop on?

Beanie’s response was no. He was actually in the studio “helping him” out with some lyrics. I asked for clarification on what that meant and here’s what he said:

Beanie Sigel had a lot of ups and downs in his life, from his music career to his troubles with the law. Now, the rapper can add his weight to the list.

After being shot and having a lung collapse last year, the Philly MC seems to be taking his health a lot more serious these days. He posted a photo to his Instagram page of himself looking several pounds lighter and a whole lot happier. He simply captioned what seemed to be a monumental photo for him with, “Health is wealth.”

Shoot 4 things nice /get it right/whether the/🎱,🏀,🔫 or the🎲…

He’s still doing shows and making great music, but with a new body and a new outlook on life.

Beanie Sigel Calls Meek Mill Vs. Drake Beef “Gay”

Instagram Photo

There are plenty of adjectives that can be used to describe the now-dead Meek Mill vs. Drake beef. Weak. One-Side. Disappointing. Errr…Homoerotic.

Well, a majority of people probably wouldn’t use the last word. Count former Roc-A-Fella shooter Beanie Sigel out of that majority. Sigel, who’s tied to this by affiliation because he’s also a Philly rapper, spoke up about what he thought about the whole thing on a lengthy Instagram post. You can read the whole thing below, but in short, Sigel will still bump Drake, Meek Mill needs to step his game up and AR-AB (the Philly street rhymer who Drake namedropped on “Back to Back“) needs to stay focused. In other words, “That hole situation gay.”

Now that I’ve got your attention! I think a lot of you are misinterpreting what I’m saying… See this thing bigger than Nino Brown.. First & foremost who really care about Meek & Drake rap beef…That hole situation gay.. Meek said what he said and Drake did what he did !!! Bottom line. .. I’m not choosing sides in none of this shit.. For one I can care less plus it’s none of my business. .. I know ,Why would Meek care if Drake didn’t write his own shit I don’t know.. I’m going to still bang Drake shit just like everybody else is because nobody cares point blank.. I know, why would Meek diss Ar. I don’t know… You have to choose your battles carefully and be prepared for the outcome good or bad.. But this about to move somewhere else beyond rap.. “A wise man don’t learn from his own mistakes ,he learns from the mistakes of other.. I told yall “I go through it so you WOULDN’T do it after me”. .. Somebody mite die over this stupid shit.. it won’t be Ar.,Meek, or Drake.. it’s going to be one of the entourage … Somebody going to move out to prove they loyalty to something that’s not loyal to them “stupidity ” somebody dies somebody in jail for life over what. You’ll be lucky if a n***a get you a lawyer send you some flicks & commissary money for a couple months…good luck on that dark skin Jermaine… But what do I know.. I’m just a washed up rapper right? RIGHT ! .. This the s**t that happens when you turn your back on your people… You don’t advise them on what’s right.. You Don’t tell them they acting like a sucker when they doing sucker s**t!!! Advice to @ar_ab_32 don’t fall for the banana in the tailpipe & sacrifice something or someone over this gay s**t…do your thing and get your money homie.. Advise to @meekmill tighten up your circle, Get them yes men from around you that’s not going to keep it 💯 when you make a bad decision, because we all do at times. “Gangsters f**k up”… Jay said “it’s a lesson learned even in defeat ! “I’M FOR MY CITY THAT ALL” But like I said I ain’t nobody right. RIGHT! QUIT THE BULLS**T!!
