N.O.R.E. On Possible Beanie Sigel 'Verzuz:' "It's No Match"

By Stereo Williams

Could we be getting a N.O.R.E. and Beanie Sigel "Verzuz" battle? N.O.R.E. talked about the idea during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club

“If you want to compare us on paper, it’s no match,” N.O.R.E. said. “Let me just be clear, everything I’ve said about Beanie Sigel, I’m joking about Beanie Sigel. I’m trying to be funny,” 

 Then the Queens rapper mentioned Beans falling out with Jay-Z, his former Roc-A-Fella Records mentor. 

“At the end of the day I want to teach him a lesson that loyalty is better than anything,” N.O.R.E. explained. “A lot of people still don’t forgive Beans for dissing the god of Hip-Hop. Let’s just be clear.”

N.O.R.E. initially sparked speculation surrounding him battling Beans after N.O.R.E. shared a photo of him and Jay-Z laughing during a FaceTime call. Sigel had a response in the comments. 

“No No No to late Chico,” Beans wrote. “Let’s get it, I was fall back working on myself minding my business… The sign at the zoo say don’t poke the bear! You done woke up a grizzly!! Let’s do it.”
