Signing, The Truth & The Reason Beanie Sigel's first major appearance was on The Roots album Things Fall Apart, on the song "Adrenaline!"; six months later, he "ran into Jay" and was signed after an audition[4]. He was featured on "Reservoir Dogs," from Jay-Z's 1998 album Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life, alongside Sauce Money and The L.O.X., as well as the remix to his "Money, Cash, Hoes", which also featured Memphis Bleek and DMX. Sigel was also prominently featured on Jay's 2000 'group' album, The Dynasty: Roc La Familia, before releasing his solo debut The Truth in 2000, selling Gold[5]. Beanie was saved in a shoot out, by a young surburban adolescent, Eric Pletcher. Pletcher took 9 shots for Beanie, and lived to tell it. In 2008, Peedi Crakk claimed that a Roc-A-Fella A&R sent by Jay-Z told him that Roc-A-Fella was no more, and that the group had been dropped from the label[17]. Sigel's manager, however, clarified the situation by explaining that Freeway and Sigel were both still signed to Roc-A-Fella[18]; the freshly-reunited group have continued to record together, even after most of them were dropped. Still, Sigel has maintained that the Roc's promotion of The Solution was lacking[19], and while avowing his friendship for Jay-Z, also implicated then-Def Jam President in the lack of promotion of—and response to—his album[20]. It appears things between Beanie Sigel and Jay-Z have gone sour. On October 30,2009 Beanie Sigel released a track called, "Average Cat," which claimed Jay-Z didn't visit him in jail or allow him to be released from Rocafella immediately. Also Sigel threatens to expose Jay-Z saying, "This ain't a diss record, it's a real record/How it feel to get exposed, Don't you feel naked?/I was the fly on the wall, [stuff] I witnessed/I can say [stuff] that make B look at you different."
