Beans I ain't tryin to change you - just give you some game
He’s explaining to Beanie Siegel who was an artist on his label, that he isn’t trying to change who he is as an artist, but trying to help him appeal to the mainstream. Many people have criticized Jay because he “sold out” and started widening his audience with songs like Hard Knock Life. This has Beans a little hesitant to change his sound up a bit, but Jay is trying to make it clear to him that sometimes it’s the best way if he hopes to make money and stay out of trouble.
Unfortunately, Sigel hasn’t stayed out of trouble. He reported to prison in September of this year for tax evasion.
