The ongoing war of words between Beanie Sigel and Meek Mill continues today (October 7) with a new diss track from the man who considers himself to be Philadelphia’s first king of rap and wants Meek’s respect.
In “Goodnight,” Sigel begins by invoking the name of his family members. He goes on to rap about how Meek has been going after his livelihood, which in turn affects his family. And Sigel is having none of that garbage. “N—- this only a stick-up/ Don’t turn it to an ambulance pick-up/ Get that s— up,” he raps before beginning a long verse explaining the impoverished conditions in which he grew up. “Or feel that wrath from all them nights I suffered/ With no supper, just one bread and butter/ One bed four deep, no heat, my little covers/ Shivering, laying in the piss of my lil brother,” he raps.
The two Philly rappers have been beefing ever since Sigel claimed he wrote some lines on Meek’s diss track against The Game, “Ooouuu.” Soon after that remark, Sigel was knocked out backstage by one of Meek’s people and from there he hasn’t remained quiet about going after his fellow Philly rapper.
For his part, Meek has been escalating the beef on social media by claiming he’s responsible for Sigel’s recent fame. “BY THE WAY…… I’m the one who pitched a philly cypher and getting philly more involved with @bet Alley ooping a n#%ga that’s throwing shade but still catching blessings!” he wrote, referencing Sigel’s recent appearance on the network.
