Song: Powerhouse Freestyle (2001)
In October 2001, Philadelphia held its annual Powerhouse concert hosted by the city’s hip-hop station, Power 99. Tensions were high between Kiss and Beans after exchanging disses on the mixtape circuit. Early in the night, Jadakiss cut off his performance of “We Gon Make It” and spit an a capella verse that called out Sigel in his hometown: “Send Sigel a wire, I’m riding again” The crowd booed and hurled objects like glowsticks and water bottles on the stage.
Sigel, who was also performing at the show, responded in kind. Among disturbing, uncalled for lines about sexually assaulting Kiss’ mom, Beans went after his allegiance to Biggie, one of Jada’s closest friends, and called him out for switching sides.
