While Beanie Sigel’s one time rival Gillie Da Kid recently backed out of an upcoming “Brotherly Love Concert” due to schedule concerns, the Broad Street bully has landed another former nemesis to headline the concert.The Lox’s Jadakiss will join Sigel and other Philadelphia rappers on stage during the concert, which is being presented by Sigel and Nike ACG.
Sigel and Jadakiss engaged in an infamous feud that started after Jadakiss accused Philadelphia rappers of stealing his style in published interviews in 2001.
Jadakiss, who claimed his words were misquoted, was still on the receiving end of a mixtape diss from Sigel.
As a result, both sides released diss records aptly titled “F**k Beanie Sigel” by Jadakiss and “F**k Jadakiss” by Beanie Sigel.
After numerous radio, mixtape and disses on albums, the beef between Sigel along with State Property versus Jadakiss and D-Block teetered on the edge of violence.
The climax came when Jadakiss appeared at a concert in Philadelphia and berated Sigel in his hometown.
Around this time, Jadakiss’ battle with 50 Cent and G-Unit, as well as a host of legal problems for Sigel helped cool the beef.
The pair eventually patched up their relationship and even recorded the “Roc Boys” remix with Roc-A-Fella boss Jay-Z.
Sigel’s “Brotherly Love Concert” is his latest attempt to end old beefs and promote unity in Philadelphia, a city known for its in-fighting amongst various rappers.
Gillie Da Kid was unable to keep a commitment to the concert because he is shooting The King of the Avenue with actor Ving Rhames in Puerto Rico.
Other performers confirmed to take the stage include Freeway, E-Ness, and local artist Reed Dollas, Joey Jahad, and Voka.
The free concert begins tonight (December 11) at 6:00 pm at the TLA on South Street in Philadelphia.
