The game loves beef, and today they'll be eating like a night at at the steakhouse. Today Beanie Sigel, longtime Roc-a-Fella representer and Jay-Z compatriot, released a diss track called "What You Talkin Bout (Average Cat)" that in no uncertain terms calls out Hova for a long list of perceived transgressions. In other words, I think it's safe to say their friendship is over.

Quick background: Assuming this evolves into a full-fledged beef, in two months we'll have completely forgotten how it all started, so let's take a minute to review the roots of the rift between Beanie and Hova. Long story short, Beanie claims that the low sales of his last album "The Solution" was due to Jay-Z and Def Jam's anemic promotion. Further complicating matters, Beanie's none to happy that Jay didn't visit him in jail or allegedly allow him to be released from his Roc-a-Fella contract.

Or as Beanie says/yells at the end of the track: "I think I held my tongue long enough about this whole Roc-a-Fella situation. I was the realest thing that happened to the Roc. The Roc was just a rock. I brought the fellas to Roc-a-Fella records. State Property, y'all remember. I brought street cred to that...I fought all them battles. Me, that's who."

Because I find there's no situation in life that isn't applicable to "The Wire", let me break down the situation like this. Jay is Stringer Bell, the intelligent, careful businessman who runs the entire network, and Beanie is Bodie, the guy who's actually on the corner, taking bullets and returning fire. While it's absolutely true that without guys like Beanie/Bodie the operation couldn't run, the truth is that there are always more Beanie/Bodies out there, but the Jay-Z/Stringer leader, that guy only comes along once in a generation, and without him there wouldn't be a business in the first place.

Man, "The Wire" explains everything. Now the inevitable wait for a Jay-Z response begins. Enjoy.
