Beanie Sigel Fires Shots at Today's Rappers


Philly OG Beanie Sigel fires shots at virtually every rapper in the game right now while answering a hypothetical question about Tupac Shakur...

In a video posted on BET's Instagram Beanie Sigel says if Tupac were alive,
...I know for a fact we wouldn't have grown men walking around with skinny jeans on with they butt out. Dudes wouldn't be wearing dresses. People wouldn't be dying their hair purple, green, orange and putting yaki, remy, whatever you want to call it, in... 
Uh the content of the music today wouldn't be the same word repeated 50 times on a nice beat and a 808 drop. Men would be men, women would be women...
Im a leave it at that...

Whack rappers are whack rappers but why does anyone's sexuality, hairstyle, clothing choices or anything unrelated to the music bother anybody?

It shouldn't be relevant but it IS because the artists blatantly exploit it. Prime example, Young Thug. No one cares about his sexuality or gender bending so why is that the first thing he puts out there? Putting a picture up of him wearing his daughter's Tutu is blatant famewhoring because he never said he was a crossdresser. I think people are over the antics is all. Be gay, wear what you want, but don't play with the public's minds. People are more woke to the fuckery these days.

"...don't play with the public's minds. People are more woke to the fuckery these days." Thank you :). We only care about Good Music.

And I know so one's gonna bring it up so i'm gonna say it. Yes Tupac took a BALLET class back in day so he may have worn a tutu lolol HOWEVER, he was learning a skill. He became a teacher later on. These new rappers aren't INSPIRING in anyway, they are just blatant famewhores. That's what Beanie means. And FYI, Beanie told Kanye to come out the closet EONS ago. He doesn't care about people being gay, he's just over the MIND GAMES the industry and artists play.

So did Prodigy of Mobb Deep. I agree these new rappers are trash. It's funny because they know they trash so they dont like to be called rappers anymore, they want to be artists. FOH

He spoke truthfully. It's another generation of rappers out here & unfortunately, their target market have little brains too so yeah, you can get rich & famous repeating a word or 2 & putting on a weird costume....Substance is for those minds that understand morals, values, compassion, English & the art of story-telling. Not saying All these kids are in the slow class but I bet money that remedial classes are over packed these days.....Sunce when is it OK to be dumb?!?!?!?!?!

@10:15 - I think it's generational and related to failing public schools and out of place morals, ethics, and standards due to Great Society programs coupled with a criminal justice system meant to destroy the Black family.

These factors skewed the thinking of an entire generation. Lord Jamar, Rakim Allah, and even Tupac were well-read and understood that rap was a tool for communication as well as recreation. Record companies made rap into a commodity by watering it down and turning it into a way to further marginalize Black people by making us seem hyperemotional and unable to properly communicate.

Hell, even Sir Mix-a-Lot and Too Short had insightful and well-written rhymes. These new "artists" are used to perpetuate the idea of infantilized, feminized Black men.

Could you imagine Pimp C or the Geto Boys in a damn dress? Hell no!

Most rappers today don't seem to be in it for the sake of art. It's all about publicity which they seek to translate into endorsements. But companies are wising up imo and will use Real artists to brand their products. That is if they want them to actually sell.

@11:14 True Indeed...additionally, single moms raising boys has heavily influenced the way young males handle situations. They mock what they see & that's why I feel we have alot of bitch-ni66as running around here gossiping & being emotional about everything. Be clear, I'm referencing the straight men who act like bitches. Men are the New Bitches
