"He is a crumb. I'm gonna put my foot on his neck until he responds," Beans said as the segment came to a wrap. Beans added that he's ready for a lyrical tangle with his once-close clique member and that he would relish a retort from Jiggaman for the "What You Talkin About (Average Cat)" song.
"Please make a record," Beans yelled on-air. "A week's been out, dog. I'm not taking nothing from Jay as an artist. He ain't no walk in the park as an artist. All I'm saying is I don't gotta jog to keep up to him."
On one hand, obviously I'd like to see Jay-Z respond with a rhyme of his own. It's part of the tradition of hip-hop, after all, and it's certainly a lot of fun for us, the listeners. But there's also a lesson to be learned here, about how keeping quiet can be just as effective in achieving your goal (making the other person look really, really fucking stupid) as fighting back.
