JAY-Z's former protege Beanie Sigel has aligned himself with rap rival 50 Cent's G-UNIT crew.
Sigel signed to Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records in 1998 and landed major appearances on a number of the rap superstar's songs.
But the deal turned sour earlier this year (09) and led to Sigel leaving the label.
He has since launched a bitter attack on Jay-Z, accusing the hip-hop mogul of failing to properly support him and his group State Property.
Sigel told a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania radio DJ on Friday (30Oct09), "As far as the push that people coulda (sic) got that really could have did (sic) things, (Jay-Z) didn't do that. If you look at 50 Cent... (his crew G-Unit) got more money... than anybody in State Property. Because 50 made sure of that. 50 took his people on tour and paid them..."
Now Sigel is set to sign a deal with 50 Cent to release music on his G-Unit Records.
Confirming the move, 50 Cent simply says, "Beans is coming to G-Unit."
