Compared to Beans you wack
“Rice” gets this all the time…
J/K! “Beans” is Beanie Sigel, a member of Roc-a-fella Records at the time “Ether” was released; Nas thinks Jay’s “lil homie” Beanie is a better rapper.
This is a shot back at Jay for his dis on Takeover where Jay-Z says about Nas: “Went from top ten to not mentioned at all/til your bodyguard’s [Horse’s] verse is better than yours…matter of fact you had the worst flow on the whole fucking song” The song Jay-Z is talking about here is Oochie Walley from the Nas presents Queensbridge the Album. Essentially, Nas is saying look, at the very least, you can argue dudes in your crew is better than you too, so that should be a dead issue.
