I don’t understand where folks got the idea that Beans already signed, but 50 said they spoke and they still have a long way to go (aka Fif needs to figure out the best way for him to come out on top of the deal).
“I had a meeting with him today,” 50 said Thursday. “First we gotta start with the music — where’s the music? Then we have to get into what it would take to bring him over to G-Unit as a record company. You can’t sign a deal in a conversation — it’s a process. We’ll see what happens.”
Fif did note that he thinks Beanie is capable lyrically and looks forward to hearing what he has in his vaults.
“I would listen to what he has,” Fif explained. “His skills haven’t diminished. Nine times out of 10, he’ll have something workable already on deck. When you’re dealing with artists who have been established longer than you, it’s a process. You have to figure out exactly where they are at before you commit to being a part of those projects, because they have habits and they’ve been conditioned for something different. You have to figure out exactly what that is before you dive in.”
