JAY-Z Label Meeting Vs. Dog Fight
Beanie Siegel opens up about his first meeting with JAY-Z, one which he almost put off for a dog fight. Most importantly, the former Roc-A-Fella rapper believed he would win the fight. In the end, the meeting took place.
“So we wound up battling in the crib,” Beanie explained. “Well I wouldn’t call it a battle — we just started going in and Boo-Bonic was crazy with it. But my man Murder Mill, he had a thing about them. So when we rap and it was over, he pulled me to the side and we exchanged numbers. I’m like, ‘Yo you hot,’ so he told me he was like, ‘Yo, we got a meeting with Roc-A-Fella,’ I mean they had deals on the table like black and white.”
Attending the Meeting
Furthermore, Beanie details what happened on the day of the meeting. He was amped up because his friend Murder Mill’s dog was sure to lose to his dog.
“So the day that they was going to go to Roc-A-Fella Records, Murder Mill had a dog named Mikey — grand champ, Mikey was killing shit,” Beanie recalled. “Mikey was biting so hard he bit the dog. When the blood come out and hit the ground, it’s blue then it turned red. I just got something from my folks and you know I’m like, ‘This is a sure shot,’ but I’m trying to go bet this money on Mikey. I’m not even trying to rap.”
Then he elaborated that he was at home during the intended meeting time. Roc-A-Fella executives came to him otherwise it wouldn’t have happened.
“I ain’t trying to go there. I’m trying to go to this dog fight. I’m tryna bet — this a sure shot. So long story short, I tried to duck him. I’m trying to get out the crib. They sitting downstairs waiting. I’m like, ‘Oh they outside the crib,’ so I gotta take the ride.”
