Now they, see my face on screens and I ain't even chase this dream
I feel sorry for those who did
Beanie Sigel didn’t spend his entire life chasing a rap career. In fact, Sigel says back then (when he started), “it wasn’t cool to be a rapper.” He wasn’t really looking to get a deal (music contract), but after losing a rap battle to a friend, he felt scorned and began to dedicate himself to improving his skills. Ultimately, through mutual acquaintances, Sigel met Jay-Z at a business meeting and after being prodded, Sigel reluctantly rapped for Jay-Z. Sigel then received an offer from Jay-Z on the spot. Sigel recognizes the element of chance in his life; therefore, he feels sorry for those who spent more time chasing the dream of a rap career than he did.
