Beanie Sigel is doubling down on his ghostwriting claims and has confirmed that he wrote part of Meek Mill’s diss to The Game. During a new interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, Sigel was asked about a video that showed him in the studio with Meek and rapper Omelly.
“We seen you at the console and people assume that you were helping [Meek Mill and Omelly] write raps. Did you ghostwrite any of the lyrics?” asked co-host DJ Envy. Sigel responded with a simple answer, saying he wrote “a few” of the lyrics. “For both Meek and Omelly?” Envy asked, “Yeah, yeah,” Sigel responded.
It’s not Sigel’s first time saying he helped Meek and his crew with the lyrics but it is his first time being so explicit about it. During a September interview, Sigel said, “I just happened to come in the studio, so I just was helping him out with some lyrics, and the situation kind of played out like it did. It’s really no beef, especially between me and Game.”
At the time of that interview, Sigel didn’t reveal how big a role he played in writing the lyrics, only saying, “I don’t want to put that out there like that or discredit nobody for their skills or nothing.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Sigel revealed that he wasn’t invited to the studio by any particular member of Meek’s crew but was informed of the recording session by a cousin of Meek Mill. “Somebody told me Omelly in the studio.” According to Sigel, when he got to the studio, Omelly was there and Sigel helped with reference track.
If what Sigel is saying is true, it can damage Meek’s reputation in hip-hop, especially after he started a feud with Drake which was based on the fact that the “One Dance” artist used a ghostwriter. During the summer of 2015, Meek claimed that rapper Quentin Miller was the man responsible for many of Drake’s lyrics.
