Guess who's back??? Beanie Sigel has signed a new distribution deal with EMI. The former enforcer for "The Roc" has been back in the studio as of late working on his new mixtape. During a recent interview Beans stated that he was approached by industry veteran Chris Schwartz about the deal.
“That’s what kind of pushed me to really do this album. I was sought out by Chris Schwartz. He had a situation at EMI and was looking for an artist,” Beanie Sigel explained. “I had just recorded a couple songs in the studio. Somebody heard a record and was like, ‘You should check out Beanie; he hasn’t been doing anything."The "broad street bully" also stated that he had deal offers from major labels, but decided to go a different route this time around.
“The first conversation was kind of generic – it was like, ‘Uhh yeah.’ I had deals on the table; I’ve been approached by everybody from everywhere – from E1, well to Koch first, to E1 to Asylum. For me to sign to a major, it’s like, ‘For what?’ I’m too far advanced in my career to go to a 360 deal. I’ve learned too much of the business to put myself in that position now.”Sigel still has the talent to be one of the top lyricist in the "game," but was slowed by legal matters and industry strife. In 2010, Beans was rumored to have a deal in place with 50 Cent and G-Unit. The deal never materialized because he was technically still under contract with "Roca-A-Fella" and "Def-Jam."
“If you’ve been through what I’ve been through in my career, you wouldn’t trust no one. You’ll fourth guess everything. What made me do the deal with Chris Schwartz was actually to get the deal together for State Property,”Sigel is rumored to be working on a album with down south veteran "Scarface." He is also planning for his new mixtape "The Classic," to hit the streets in time for the summer. Mack will bring a aggressive style of rapping back to the game, while regaining his status as a hip-hop legend. Check out a classic Sigel and Scarface calaboration below.
