Uh-oh + wow + yikes = Damn.

Over the weekend, Beanie came out onstage with D-Block in Philly, and before he left the stage, he spit a subliminal-laden verse in the style of Jay-Z’s “What We Talkin’ Bout.”**  Then tonite, on Hot97, the Drama King DJ Kay Slay‘s world-premiered the whole 7-minute song+rant from the Broad Street Bully. Thank you to Slay for passing the song to me and you…

Beanie Sigel “What You Talkin’ Bout (Average Cat)” (Jay-Z Diss) (CD-Quality)

And did I mention, yikes? *shakes head*

Beans is making alot of accusations here (B? BP3 show? No jail mail? Feds?)….I know one of y’all will post a transcript soon. Don’t forget the rant at the end too, when you do.

UPDATE: Beanie Sigel Calls Charlamagne Tha God (10/30/09) [38min]

“3:35-4:00 I love the way 50 did with his dawgs. If you look at it, them dudes got more money and more bread than anybody in State Property. Cuz 50 made sure of that. 50 went on tour AND paid them. Not tell them it was a good look for them to be on the tour and things like that. True story, I’m sitting on house arrest and the Young Gunz call my phone cuz Jay-Z is only paying them $1200 a show. And they had to split it.”

(props to Dre/Nahright)



And the slew of music goodies dropping this week continues! Elliott/RapRadar got the scoop on this Gucci Mane “Wasted” Remix featuring the expected (Wayne, which is the same as his “Wasted” freestyle from the No Ceilings mixtape, and Baby) and the unexpected (Jada)….Who aced this? Opinions?

My boy Russ from J Records was raving about the new Alicia Keys song on twitter today….so I asked him for a listen, lol. I remember when we were sitting together at Alicia’s show front n center at the Garden earlier this year (or was it late last year?)…wow, she blew me away. Singing, dancing, piano-ing, lol…

Alicia Keys “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” (Produced by Jeff Bhasker, who worked on Kanye’s 808s album as well)

Love this song already.

UPDATE: now fully obsessed with this song. Like ’09 Pat Benatar.

(photos of Shyne at the Belize City youth hostel…talking to residents and staff)

According to media outlets in Belize, Shyne arrived in Belize City airport on Weds afternoon…and here are some details…After leaving the airport, Shyne went straight to talk to kids at the Princess Royal Youth Hostel…and talked to the residents about some of  his past transgressions. Meanwhile, Channel Five Belize documented Shyne’s reunion with his family, as well as his immediate plan, and why he’s renting out a whole floor at the Radisson….

Shyne emerged from the plane in a Harvard Law School sweat shirt and a pair of headphones around his neck. The rapper sported a full head of parted hair. He was hugged first by his godmother then his manager and others including one of his attorneys, Oscar Michelin, followed by Pulu Lightburn. Emerging to meet him at the stairs of the VIP room was his mother Imeon Myvette. She escorted him inside for the processing of his freedom on Belizean soil. After greeting with his father in the privacy of V.I.P. area, Shyne’s uncle, Michael Finnegan, gave the media an update on his status.

Michael Finnegan, Shyne’s Uncle
“Shyne is home. He wants to say how happy he is to be home and to be a free man. He would love to have a conversation with the media but because he was legally advised by Professor Ogletree, he must not speak to the media because he doesn’t want to prejudice his situation any at all with the US government or with the Belize government. So he asked me to ask you that he don’t want to disrespect you the media, but please to understand what is going on. You could see the tears in his eyes as they hugged and the romantic situation in there especially with his Grandmother and with his father, with his younger brother Anwar, they hugged and neva want let go one another.”

More details about Shyne’s first day back with family after the jump…. (PS: Big up to reader Eddie for the link)
